"I am extremely proud of the commission savings we have achieved for our clients of more than $10,000,000. Nearly $1,100,000, has come from representing clients finding unrepresented buyers and did not pay any selling costs. We have paid over $330,000 in incentive rebates to over 100 buyers. These accomplishments are a testament to our dedication to providing high-quality, cost-effective real estate services to our clients."

Our Roots

Our banner image is a family photograph from almost 100 years ago. It captures a moment at a picnic for the Franklin grocery business in El Paso, Texas in 1926. My grandfather is in this photograph and was a founder of NewWay Markets, a grocery chain later sold to Safeway in 1928. I am proud to carry on his legacy and follow in his footsteps. In the photograph, my grandfather can be seen seated on the left side of the bottom row, wearing a white shirt, tie, and hat with his legs crossed. He is seated next to my grandmother and uncles, and my father to the right.

Our History

My career in real estate started in 2004, after a successful 25-year stint in technology, finance, and sales. Near the end of my corporate journey, I wanted to take control of my destiny. Real estate had always been a passion of mine, dating back to my teenage years in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Starting on a construction site, I advanced to a become a framer. Intrigued by building homes, I considered becoming a home builder. The oil crisis in the early 70s hurt the construction industry, causing me to explore other career paths. Resulting in the founding of DFWCityhomes.

Entering the market during a boom time, I began to flip houses. To lower my costs, I secured my real estate license. Then discovering that helping others in buying and selling homes is more exciting. This prompted me to acquire my license and revamp DFWCityhomes into a real estate company. In 2009, we revised our business strategy to compete against traditional real estate agents. We created a flat fee fee option that rivals big box brokers. The success of this strategy has given me great pride.
