Everyone has a story. Each story is unique. A life story begins from childhood and is created into adulthood. Every person also has a unique “why.” Bess wants to hear her clients’ stories so she can help achieve the “why.” For more than a decade, Bess has been helping to positively shift the purchasing and selling of real estate from simple transactions to relationships.
For Bess, being a realtor is more than a real estate deal. She guides clients through the process of buying and selling a home in such a way that the experience is both interesting and fun. The best transactions are those in which a client feels seen and heard, that their time and story has value, and that their interests and goals are the top priority. Bess not only has the capacity to connect with clients on a real level, but she has learned how to best utilize her life chapters to anticipate transaction speed bumps and guide her clients to the best results.
“Real estate was just a natural fit for me,” says Bess. “My family watched This Old House, and then we lived the show by rehabbing our own home.” Along the way, Bess also volunteered in other countries to build transitional housing. “I’ve been involved in residential construction in some form since childhood. I have also been blessed with depth and color throughout my life. My passion is to leverage my experiences to help clients realize their ideal space so that they are one step closer to achieving their desired life.”
In no particular order, Bess is an avid runner, cook (she is a two-time salsa cookoff champion), volunteer, mom, aunt, sister, daughter, cancer survivor and widow. “I have been blessed with a background that enables me to bring a unique perspective and skillset to my clients.”
There’s no question that practicing real estate is a dynamic endeavor. Working with Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty enables Bess to connect clients worldwide service, whether referring clients to equally reliable agents in other parts of the country or overseas. Investing in the best to guide with trust and confidence no matter the country or state boundary.
An eight year passion project has grown into its own Instagram page. Crash is a 1960 Jeep Willys wagon resto-mod. Original Hurricane engine with a three-speed transmission, Crash rolls through neighborhoods at a comfortable stroll. Built to haul, Crash enjoys helping new homeowners meet their neighbors or sellers build the get sold buzz by cohosting with b. front lawn pizza parties.
Outfitted with a portable pizza oven Crash & b. enjoy rolling up sharing the joy of slices, smiles and salutations with both longtime and fresh friends.
When not celebrating home changes with pizza porch parties, Crash is sharing cool fun rolling throughout the neighborhoods of Dallas dispensing Steel City pops to those he meets on the streets, just because. Need a Crash tour through your current or future neighborhood? Give b. a call.
1960 Willys Four-Wheel-Drive Station Wagon: Your (Great-) Grandfather’s SUV – Autoweek
The jeep was created in late 1940 by the American Bantam Motor Company to meet the Army’s requirements for a lightweight, go-anywhere, general purpose (GP) reconnaissance vehicle.
b. believes in paying forward in all aspects of life. A portion of every transaction is donated to bess’s four favs:
Back On My Feet: Back on My Feet combats homelessness through the power of running, community support, and essential employment and housing resources. Many of us have loved ones that walked the 12 step program, only to fall again and again. BoMF gives 12 step participants an outlet to apply immediately to their lives in an authentic way, the 12 steps. I enjoy my mornings volunteering with the can-do souls that bravely say no more to their old life choices and embrace next steps.
Slow Food DFW: Slow Food DFW, a chapter of Slow Food USA, envisions a world in which all people can eat food that is good for them, good for the people who grow it, and good for the planet. Slow Food USA reconnects Americans with the people, traditions, plants, animals, fertile soils, and waters that produce our food. We inspire individuals and communities to change the world through food that is good, clean, and fair for all. I believe one of the best ways to love future generations is to share with them each bite they choose does matter. Know your food, grow your food and share with all.
Friends of Katy Trail: What was once an abandoned railroad line is now one of the most iconic destinations in Dallas: the Katy Trail. The popular trail brings over one million visitors every year to enjoy the beautiful scenery, well-maintained paths, and splendor of the city. I would be happy to have you join me on the Trail for a run and explore this lovely ribbon of fun! Reach out before the annual Katy Trail 5K (traditionally the First Thursday evening of June), I may just have an extra entry.
The Bridge: The Bridge Breast Network saves lives by providing access to diagnostic and treatment services for breast cancer to low-income, uninsured and underinsured individuals. The Bridge Breast Network offers dignity, respect, and support. This incredible group guided me through the first many scary days that followed after my diagnosis.
