For Carol Russo, real estate is all about seeing the big picture. She understands that real estate is personal and emotional yet also a business, and helping people achieve their goals begins with a solid strategy. With an MBA in Marketing, a BFA in Graphic Design and a nearly twenty-year track record of excellence, Carol markets for results. "I see the big picture," says Carol. "I think marketing, I think in pictures, which allows me to help buyers envision what a home, room or space could be." For nearly two decades she has helped people weigh their priorities and see beyond just the bones of a home or the appeal of a certain street. From identifying a target buyer for a property, to helping families transition to the right neighborhood for their growing kids, Carol uses her experience to steer clients in the right direction, while listening to and exceeding their needs. "Having moved from Dallas, to Denver, to Houston, to Tennessee and back to DFW, while raising children in the local schools along the way, I know firsthand how important it is to work with a trusted professional who can open doors for people," says Carol. "Nothing is more rewarding for me than to get maximum value for my client's home, or find them the perfect home to suit their lifestyle." Prior to real estate, Carol gleaned valuable insights as Marketing Director for a powerhouse cellular company, advertising and launching cellular systems across major U.S. markets. Today, she launches homes like a product and knows it takes creative solutions to stand out. At Briggs Freeman Sotheby's International Realty - the oldest, boutique real estate firm in Dallas, and a leader in North Texas luxury real estate - Carol uses every resource to provide extensive market analysis, exclusive marketing opportunities and a renowned brand network to bring the buyer to you. Recognized as a D Magazine top producer and a 5 Star Professional in Texas Monthly, Carol's knack for helping people buy and sell homes has made her one of Tarrant County's most sought after agents. She has a reputation for exceptional customer service and strategic marketing prowess, but clients say she has a true gift for the business. "We had multiple showings and an offer within 24 hours. She worked diligently and creatively to help us meet our moving timelines," say The Grimwoods. "Carol is an outstanding Realtor. She is our Realtor for life, no matter where we move," explains Patricia Gaine. And, Carol knows Tarrant County neighborhoods. She is actively involved in Southlake Newcomers: a social and civic organization befitting Tarrant County ladies and charities, Children's Miracle Network, Susan Komen, Beatleukemia and Light the Night for Cancer. She is also a member of Good Shepherd Church in Colleyville, and if there is ever a charity 5K nearby Carol is the first to sign up. She lives happily in Southlake with her husband Barry, CEO at The Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders, Fort Worth. They have two children, daughter Kourtney, a 2014 Graduate of Texas Tech and Oncology Nurse at Baylor Dallas, and son Kyle a graduate from Marquette Law School in Sports Law.
