Christy Berry, ARB, ALHS, GREEN, an associate with Briggs Freeman Residential Brokerage, holds a Doctorate degree in Family Studies. That education and her experiences allow Christy to understand the emotional and financial challenges in buying and selling a family's most important asset - their home.
Having remodeled several homes and condominiums near the Park Cities' campus of Southern Methodist University, that experience gives her in-depth understanding of home construction. She knows what features are important to buyers and which features sellers should emphasize.
"Christy sold our house in one day for our asking price in a very tough market," Dr. and Mrs. John Peloza said. "Then was able to help us find a gorgeous home within a matter of weeks. She has made the entire process so much easier by her knowledge of the market and her abilities to negotiate on our behalf. We would definitely use her again!"
A primary reason for the success Christy brings to her clients is her love of research which she learned while working as a research associate for the Cooper Institute. She mines data from a variety of sources, understanding the value of homes in individual neighborhoods, the strengths and weaknesses of a community, including schools, parks, recreation facilities, shopping venues and traffic patterns.
