Agents of Change :: Henda Salmeron


 

Agents of Change :: Henda Salmeron

 

Henda Salmeron is no stranger to the spotlight.

 

After first being diagnosed with breast cancer nearly 10 years ago, Salmeron made sure not to fade away as her health spiraled out of control. Through treatment and recovery, the breast cancer and heart attack survivor became a champion for women’s health, eventually helping to pass her own law in 2011.

 

Henda’s Law — as it is officially known in Texas — requires medical providers to inform women if they have dense breast tissue, which could hide abnormalities, and to tell patients if more advanced screening is needed.

 

Salmeron’s story was covered locally and statewide. Her law led to a “23-fold increase” in the number of MRIs within two years after its implementation, according to a study by Baylor Medical Center.

 

Agents of Change :: Henda Salmeron

 

Salmeron knew that there was more of her story to tell. Earlier this year, Salmeron published her autobiography, “Grit Under My Nails: A Memoir in Three Acts,” which chronicles her life before, during and after her life-changing mammogram.

 

She is now back in the spotlight, recently speaking with CBS 11 about “Grit Under My Nails,” as well as the future of Henda’s Law.

Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate Poised for Further Growth


 

Hal Thompson Home Newly Listed in Park Cities
Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate’s 2017 sales included the 66-day turnaround of an iconic home on Lakeside Drive — the largest sale on this street in a decade.

 

Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate had an exceptional year in 2017 with records sales and significant market-share gains in several well-known Dallas neighborhoods. The brand, which celebrated its 10th anniversary last year, continues to be a major — and growing — force in the North Texas market.

 

“Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate continues to not only grow, but to thrive,” according to executives at parent company Ebby Halliday. “In this competitive market, home buyers and sellers have their choice of experienced agents from numerous brands; we believe verifiable facts are the best way to measure success.”

 

In the city of Dallas, Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate, which is a division of the locally owned and widely admired Ebby Halliday Companies (the sales volume leader in North Texas), is No. 1 overall in sales when combining its primary MLS selling areas of 10 (Far North Dallas), 11 (North Dallas/Preston Hollow), 12 (Lakewood/East Dallas), 14 (North Oak Cliff/Kessler Park), 16 (Northwest Dallas), 17 (Intown/Downtown/Oak Lawn), 18 (Lake Highlands), and 25 (Park Cities), according to the North Texas Real Estate Information Systems MLS.

 

Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate was involved in a large number of high-end luxury sales in 2017; the brand also significantly outperformed competitors in number of units sold in the aforementioned areas — a solid indicator of its appeal to sellers at all price points.

 

Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate remains the No. 1 brand outright in both sales volume and market share for North Dallas/Preston Hollow, Lakewood, North Oak Cliff/Kessler Park and Intown/Downtown/Oak Lawn.

 

Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate’s sales volume in the Park Cities was up 5 percent over the prior year. The brand’s sales included the 66-day turnaround of an iconic home on Lakeside Drive — the largest sale on this revered Highland Park street in a decade. Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate participated in 265 transactions in Area 25, 53 percent of which were priced above $1 million and 20 percent above $2 million.

 

“At Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate, we prioritize honesty, integrity and transparency in every transaction,” executives said. “While 2017 was an extraordinary year for the Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate brand, we can’t wait to see what 2018 will bring. Whether you’re considering buying or selling a home, our team of seasoned, accomplished agents is ready to serve you.”

Hanne Sagalowsky :: NAR Coordinator to Western Europe, Israel, Turkey


 

hanne sagalowsky

 

With her European upbringing and an affinity for making global connections, Hanne Sagalowsky is perfectly suited for her new position as the National Association of Realtors® (NAR) coordinator to Western Europe, Israel and Turkey.

 

This new position is an expansion of her duties at NAR, where she was previously the presidential liaison to Denmark, her native country, and Sweden for more than 10 years. As a coordinator, she will oversee 14 countries and the presidential liaisons to those countries.

 

Additionally, Sagalowsky is the incoming vice chair for the Texas Association of Realtors® Global Committee, furthering her global expertise.

 

Sagalowsky has lived in Dallas for more than 30 years and specializes in relocation (locally as well as overseas), working with many transferees from major DFW corporations.

 

We asked Sagalowsky what her new position as the NAR coordinator to Western Europe, Israel and Turkey means to her.

 

What does being named NAR Coordinator entail and what does it mean to you?

 

It’s an extension of my previous positions. I started more than 10 years ago as the liaison to Denmark, then Sweden, later to both Denmark and Sweden. It’s typically a one-year appointment, but you tend to be reappointed if you build a good relationship with your appointed country. After a number of years, I got promoted, so to speak. It’s all volunteer.

 

The region I’m overseeing is the one I feel most qualified to work with, having grown up in Western Europe. I was raised in Denmark and traveled extensively while growing up and continue to do so.

 

NAR connects our national Realtor association with associations in more than 70 countries all over the world through a bilateral agreement. Additionally, we have local and state ambassador associations in the United States to help with those relationships.

 

It’s a three-legged stool: You have the NAR presidential liaison, the association in the country the liaison is assigned to and also an ambassador association in the U.S. They all work together to further best practices and exchange mutually beneficial information, as well as help with cross-border transactions.

 

It involves a lot of time, but it’s something I’m excited about and really enjoy. Being multilingual certainly makes it easier. I speak three languages more or less fluently, with an understanding of a couple of others.

 

How does the new position work together with your business at Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate?

 

Any involvement with your associations whether it is on the local, state or national level is so important in your professional development. Whatever the volunteer work might be, it makes you a better informed and better prepared Realtor.  

 

I work with a number of foreign-born or recent immigrants. It is important for anyone who works on the global scene to be knowledgeable about many different issues, i.e. visa issues, tax laws, etc.  It is also extremely helpful to be familiar with how real estate transactions are conducted in other countries, so that you may be able to explain the differences to your clients.

 

I also hold the designation of Certified International Property Specialist. Only 3,500 real estate professionals in 45 countries hold this special designation. The designation means I’ve been trained in working with foreign nationals and understand cross-border relocation and cross-border referrals.

 

Realtors who have earned this designation are consumers’ best and most trusted resources for navigating the global market.

 

How does understanding various cultures assist in your transactions?

 

It makes you more sensitive to issues that may come up during a transaction and prepares you for problems that are unique to transactions involving foreign nationals or recent immigrants. Real estate transactions are conducted differently across the world and even very differently from state to state in the US.

 

A lot of Americans, including many American Realtors don’t understand how differently real estate is conducted in other countries. Consequently, they do not understand what needs to be explained to someone who is not familiar with how transactions are handled in the United States.

 

If you don’t understand your clients’ background, building rapport and trust can also be difficult. I am an immigrant myself. I have been in their shoes. That fact has been extremely helpful as well. I came here to go to college, and I’m still here.
