It can't be easy to go through life without ever meeting a stranger, but somehow Adele Broughton pulls it off. This ability to build instant friendships is second only to her talent for seeing the potential in homes. And don't let her Alabama accent fool you, Adele has called Dallas her home for over 20 years. After The University of Alabama with a major in Social Work, Adele worked in her family's banking business for several years before going back to school to earn a Bachelor of Accounting with highest honors from Troy State University. Adele is a CPA and was a tax accountant with Ernst & Young for eight years prior to working with a former client, Southern Progress Corporation, as a marketing director for the Southern Living book division. Adele then found herself selling a different kind of real estate: advertising space. As a Publisher's Representative for such prestigious magazines as Town&Country, Country Living and SmartMoney, she earned her clients' trust and respect by generating creative solutions and sustaining an impeccable work ethic. Prior to honing her talent as an Account Executive for National Cable Communications, she used her local knowledge and appreciation of Dallas as a member of the sales team responsible for launching D Magazine and Dallas Family Magazine. Yet, as rewarding as her 17 year advertising sales career was, Adele has found her true calling in real estate. Adele is a Historic House Specialist awarded by Preservation Dallas. "I have always had a fascination with architecture; and remodeling and decorating my own homes has long been my hobby and passion." Adele is completely dedicated to everything she does. From serving on the board of Women of St. Michael at St. Michael All Angels Episcopal Church to supporting the Kappa Kappa Gamma Dallas Alumnae Association and Preston Center Rotary Club, she's constantly giving back to the community that gives her so much joy. Adele is also a sustaining member of the Junior League of Dallas and is a volunteer with other groups such as Habitat for Humanity. She is an avid runner, having run several marathons, and she loves to garden. "I would love to work with you on finding your dream home or use my 20 years of experience in sales and marketing to sell yours. Please call me at 214-228-6803 to talk about it."
