Kay Wood is a native Dallasite and grew up in the Park Cities, attending Highland Park Schools. After high school, Kay enrolled at the Sewanee: The University of the South, where she earned a degree with distinction in art history. Before returning home to Dallas, she went to Austin to pursue two masters’ degrees, first in art history and later in media studies at the University of Texas. After a brief return to Tennessee to teach history of art and architecture at her alma mater, she came home to Dallas in 2005.
Kay Wood has spent a lifetime exploring Dallas’ communities.
Shortly after her return to Dallas, Kay joined Briggs Freeman. Her interest in real estate developed out of countless hours spent at open houses and construction sites with her architect mother. Her background as a student and teacher of art and architecture also contributes to her interest in real estate, particularly in architecturally significant and historic homes.
Kay believes that each client has different expectations for their home and their home search. Just as each of her students had a different learning style, each of Kay’s clients has different hopes and objectives for their purchase, whether it’s an investment or their family dream home, and she constantly adapts to each client’s needs. She works to really listen to her clients and combines traditional customer service, networking and marketing with cutting edge technology to achieve the best and fastest results for her clients.
Kay has spent a lifetime exploring the city’s various communities. She specializes in the Park Cities, Preston Hollow, Devonshire, M-Streets, Lakewood, Uptown, Oaklawn, and North Oak Cliff neighborhoods and has ties to numerous other neighborhoods throughout the Metroplex. With partners Linda and Mike McMahon, she was part of Briggs Freeman’s Top Team Producers in 2008 and 2010. Now with partner Kyle Richards, Kay continues to deliver results for her clients.
Kay currently lives in North Oak Cliff with her husband and two children. She is an active member of the Junior League of Dallas, Alliance young professionals, is a board member of the Dallas Children’s Advocacy Center League, and volunteers regularly at her children’s school.
WHAT I BRING TO YOU
From working in politics and in fundraising through communications and marketing, I know how to sell. Now a member of the Briggs Freeman boutique firm, I network with top agents and colleagues to bring you high-level team work and opinion. I can lead the team to develop a strategic, results-oriented sales plan for you.
Entrenched in the fiber of Dallas, I am a graduate of the St. Marks School of Texas and have lived in different neighborhoods. This gives me a cross section of knowledge for a broad contact base, and I can bring you the right buyer.
Along with my tenacity and communications experience, I bring talent teamed with technology to sell your property in 2013.
BACKGROUND THAT WORKS FOR YOU
A Dallas native, I bring business savvy and communications acumen to my real estate clients. Before joining Briggs Freeman, I played a significant role in important civic and political campaigns.
• My work in the political arena includes a re-election campaign for a north Dallas Congressman, and, later, the presidential campaign of Rudy Giuliani, for whom I led statewide fundraising events. I hosted the former Mayor of New York to Dallas on multiple occasions.
• At the University of Denver, I focused on business and communications.
• A desire to give back to the city where I grew up led me to raise funds for the non-profit Safer Dallas Better Dallas. We raised over $18 million to reach the needs of the Dallas Police Force.
• At Reeds Public Relations Corporation, I led numerous civic campaigns.
• Having grown up in Greenway Parks and Highland Park, I specialize in these areas as well as in north Dallas, where I went to St. Marks.
