The region is seeing increased interest from urban cities and Western states looking for a more relaxing pace of life. Dana and her team bring a well-rounded background to the brand, and I look forward to welcoming Staples Sotheby’s International Realty to the network and our continued expansion in Texas.”

Our affiliation with Sotheby’s International Realty permits us to provide the best possible experience for our buyers and sellers and gives us the support we need to further expand our presence in the region.”
