Peerage Realty, parent company of Sotheby's International Realty Canada, is further expanding its footprint south of the border with the announcement of a substantial partnership interest in Briggs Freeman Sotheby's International Realty, a leading premium real estate brokerage in North Texas. 

This is the fourth Sotheby’s International Realty franchise to partner with Peerage Realty Partners, joining Sotheby’s International Realty Canada, Four Seasons Sotheby’s International Realty of Vermont and New Hampshire, and Jameson Sotheby’s International Realty of Chicago.

A long-established force in the North Texas luxury market -- including the Dallas and Fort Worth markets -- Briggs Freeman specializes in the representation of significant properties, from historic and contemporary to waterfront, commercial, ranch, and land.  

Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty was founded as a boutique firm in 1960. For the past 30 years, it has been led by CEO Robbie Briggs, growing to six offices, 381 agents, and a projected US$2.9 billion (C$3.61 billion) in 2021 real estate sales.

"For Peerage itself, we’re identifying markets with lots of growth, and Texas right now is one of those places... This one’s a real prize for us," Gavin Swartzman, CEO of Peerage Realty told STOREYS.

The partnership with Briggs Freeman serves as cornerstone for Peerage Realty's ongoing North American expansion strategy in targeted real estate markets. Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty will continue to be led by CEO Robbie Briggs, company president Russ Anderson, and the leadership team. The leaders will continue to play a role in the future growth and development of the firm.

“We are very excited about partnering with Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty, adding another superb Sotheby’s International Realty firm to the Peerage Realty family of companies,” Swartzman said in a release about the partnership. “The calibre of the team – assembled and led by Robbie and Russ – is truly exceptional and reflects their long-term commitment to be the best in their business. And for Peerage Realty, the quality and deep experience of partners like them, are the ultimate consideration.”

Sharing the sentiment, Briggs extended a warm, Texas-sized welcome.

"Our values and those of Peerage Realty are fully aligned. With a shared focus on providing a luxury service experience to all clients, we will be able to further reinforce our presence in existing markets and build our business in new markets at home and internationally," said Robbie Briggs.
