 Let’s focus on two Dallas women who took very different paths to their success as real estate agents, bringing diverse careers chock full of intriguing professional experiences into the business.

Christy Berry became a top-producing agent within just a few years of starting a career in residential real estate. She was a Wall Street businesswoman, earned a Ph.D. in Family Studies, and worked as a research associate for Dallas’ famed Cooper Institute. Having lived abroad, Christy has significant insight into helping families move to and from the DFW area. She’s also lived in nearly every neighborhood that she focuses on, including the Park Cities and Preston Hollow.


After a distinguished legal career spanning three decades, Lucy Johnson moved into residential real estate. She earned a law degree and MBA from SMU, served as associate general counsel for the largest privately held corporation in Dallas, and later spent 20 years as senior counsel to an NYSE corporation. Lucy oversaw the purchase and sale of hundreds of properties in the U.S., Australia, Norway, Ireland, Hong Kong and Panama. The Dallas native knows the local market well, a huge plus for her clients.

Many of our top producers bring a diversity of experience to their work in real estate coming from successful careers in law, retail, sales and marketing, and more.

I welcome your comments and questions.
