David Chicotsky and Michaela Chicotsky are husband and wife owners of the Chicotsky Real Estate Group and were personally hired by the CEO of Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty, Robbie Briggs. The group specializes in offering unparalleled service by being honest with clients, doing as much due diligence as possible, working on the client’s time frame not the agent’s, being responsive, aiding in the negotiations needed to buy and sell a home or property, manage the transaction towards closing, and ultimately adding value to our clients.
David was born and raised in Fort Worth, before earning an economics degree from the University of Texas-Austin and completing the graduate school curriculum in environmental studies specializing in economics at Baylor University.
He’s gone on to complete an advanced realtor certification: GRI, Graduate Realtor Institute. Prior to owning the real estate group, David was a world-class tournament poker player. He was featured in the Time Magazine article, ‘Attack of the Math Brats’ and at one time was ranked the #1 poker player in the world. David offices in the heart of Fort Worth’s Cultural District, down the street from the family’s shopping center. Having bought and sold over $10,000,000 of real estate in D/FW since 2016, David has proven to be one of the hardest working agents around.
Michaela has lived all over the world: from the Philippines to Hawaii to California to Las Vegas. Michaela and David Chicotsky were introduced to each other by Hugh Hefner at the Playboy Mansion in Los Angeles. She was a marketing executive working for the owner of a world-wide clothing brand where she traveled around the country auditing stores.
David’s strong personality and family ties ultimately were enough to persuade her to give Texas a shot; low and behold she’s found a great city in Fort Worth to put down roots. From initial marketing strategies to keeping everything on time and on target towards closing, Michaela is involved in every step of the real estate transaction.
Whether it’s a townhome, duplex, condo, multi-family or single family residence – the Chicotsky Real Estate Group is here to help. Spanning the greater Dallas-Fort Worth area, we pride ourselves in taking a hands-on approach to buying and selling homes. When listing a home, we start with a complete walk-through to determine if there are any foreseeable objections buyers will have and we come up with solutions to remedy these issues. All of our listings feature professional photography, whether that’s proprietary photography options such as Matterport (via Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s), standard photography, aerial photography or drone video footage. It is said that over 95% of all potential buyers look online at the photos of a home for sale before deciding to tour a property. We create a pre-marketing rollout of the listing through social media and our inhouse Sotheby’s International Realty network.
Along with selling homes, we often work with buyers. In fact, at Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s we’re bringing 38% of our own buyers to our own listings. There is no limit to the diversity of buyers we work with; first time home buyers, empty nesters, retirees, sale for an estate or representing investors. Whether you’re buying or selling a home, you’ll need agents that know the lay of the land, neighborhood by neighborhood.
Texas land and ranch properties are renowned the world over. Whether it’s hundreds or thousands of acres of land for a ranch or horse property, or if it’s simply enough acreage to have a home on it outside of the city – we’ve got you covered. We work with buyers seeking gated ranchette communities such as Sierra la Rana in West Texas, as well as buyers of horse properties around D/FW such as Silverado on the Brazos between Granbury and Weatherford. The Chicotsky Real Estate Group works hand-in-glove with prominent title companies specializing in the intricacies of land and ranch.
Listing a piece of land or ranch is as easy as arranging a tour with one of our real estate experts, looking over the comps and letting the Chicotsky Real Estate Group go to work crafting a marketing strategy that will get as many eyeballs as possible on your property. Our company has a direct-channel pipeline for advertising directly to the roughly 18,000 real estate agents in and around D/FW. The primary focus of our marketing efforts revolves around a call to action; getting as many agents as possible to send your property to their clients. Land and ranch listings typically have a longer ‘days on market’ per listing when compared to selling residential real estate, all the more reason to choose a real estate group that believes in aggressively marketing your property.
The Chicotsky Real Estate Group is proud to have a long history of commercial real estate ownership, having built the first strip center in Fort Worth. That strip center is still family-owned and houses Chicotsky’s Liquor Store, the oldest liquor store in Texas. David Chicotsky, owner of the Chicotsky Real Estate Group grew up looking over tenant leases and has a foundational understanding of what’s needed to represent both buyers and sellers of commercial property.
Understanding the ramifications of certain components of leases allows for assisting tenants as well as landlords structure leases. Having seen countless lease negotiations from the side of landlord, it allows for a more expansive view of how a tenant should be represented.
David helped us sell our house in Arlington, it was a crazy deal. Someone actually drove through the front wall around our house. To say David helped put out some fires on this one is an understatement. He coordinated the insurance adjuster with the contractors who made estimates on the repairs. The entire process was pretty easy for us as homeowners, his work allowed us to relax. We now live in a fantastic lake house off of Eagle Mountain Lake which David negotiated us a good deal on. We’ve sent family and friends to use him, the team really stays on top of things and they’re very responsive if you ever have a question or need anything. Can’t recommend David and Michaela enough, they’re impressive people who do a stellar job for clients like us.
