Dallas’ Boutique Real Estate Leader, Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s Introduces a Luxury Leasing Division


1406313336DALLAS, TX – Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty has launched a luxury leasing division, bringing on Arthur Greenstein and his Uptown Locators company to expand the boutique luxury real estate firm’s services.

With the new luxury leasing division, Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty can guide clients through real estate decisions that span every stage of life – from leasing to luxury homebuying to second-home searches and investment opportunities.

1406313008“This new division will be vital as we continue to grow our relocation services,” said Robbie Briggs, President and CEO of Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty. “It will also help our agents find homes for clients who have sold their current home but want to take some time finding or building another one, a common situation in today’s market.”

Operating under the BFSIR umbrella will allow Greenstein and his team of leasing agents to list his clients’ lease properties in the Multiple Listing Service. That will give Realtors more options for sellers seeking transitional housing and provide landlords vastly increased exposure for their properties.

“This new arrangement means Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty can work with a much greater range of new clients and seamlessly offer luxury leasing options to current clients,” said Greenstein, who joins the firm as Director of Leasing. “Right now, 42 percent of U.S. households lease their homes. And this is a much higher level of service than ever offered in the Dallas market.”

The new Leasing Division is part of BFSIR’s Uptown/Downtown Information Center, 2500 Cedar Springs Road, right in the heart of Dallas’ most vibrant luxury leasing neighborhoods.

Unlike with other apartment location services, Greenstein’s team are licensed Realtors so they understand and can advise on real estate transactions from every aspect. Agents also provide tours of properties – instead of simply sending out lists of options, which is common.

“I have long wanted to expand our leasing services, but we needed to find the right team,” Briggs said. “Arthur’s business model ties in well with our operations and will help us offer the level of service our clients deserve.”

President and CEO Robbie Briggs independently owns and operates Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty with six offices in Dallas, Uptown, Lakewood, Ranch and Land, The Ballpark and Southlake.
