Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty announced Monday it plans to open a new Fort Worth office in early 2015. The announcement occurred the same day that former Southeby’s affiliate Williams Trew was acquired by Dallas’ Ebby Halliday Real Estate.

“The world views the D-FW Metroplex as one market, but we understand each city has its own unique character and personality,” said President and CEO Robbie Briggs in a news releae.. “Together, with the leadership and guidance of local businesses and influencers, we can deliver our world-class brand and services to the world-class city of Fort Worth.” The acquisition of Williams Trew and the announcement by Briggs Freeman follows the settlement of a lawsuit that Williams Trew had filed against Briggs Freeman in September 2013 saying that Briggs interfered with Williams Trew’s contract with Sotheby’s Internaitonal Realty Affiliates LLC.
