HomeSmart Stars Announces Partnership with Texas Pride Realty, LLC

New Dallas-Based Team of Agents Speak Ten Different Languages

DALLAS, Tex. A recent partnership between Texas Pride Realty, LLC, now Texas Pride Realty Group (TPRG) and HomeSmart Stars has created one of the most diverse real estate brokerages Dallas has to offer.

HomeSmart Stars Owner Brenda Thompson is a results-driven entrepreneur with proven experience leading companies to success, and TPRG’s Owner Bob McCranie is dedicated to developing lead sources for his agents. Together, this dynamic duo is excited to grow real estate opportunities to agents and consumers in North Texas.

“I’m happy to bring Texas Pride Realty under the HomeSmart Stars umbrella,” McCranie said. “I’ve known Brenda for many years and have always admired her ethics and drive. We will continue as a diversity-focused brand with our core principle of inclusion remaining front and center.”

One of the biggest perks of the partnership is TPRG gaining access to HomeSmart’s advanced technology including its RealSmart Agent software. It seamlessly links to HomeSmart’s broker platform, RealSmart Broker, so agents can get real-time information on listings and transaction files from anywhere, at any time.

“The marketing and technology tools provided by HomeSmart are great additions for both brokers and agents,” Thompson said. “Bob and I have been colleagues and friends for several years and I am pleased to bring the advantages of HomeSmart to each member of the team.”

Agents are excited to join Thompson’s brokerage because of her impressive industry experience including her launch of the very first office for United Real Estate in 2011 that she grew to more than 350 agents. Thompson also serves on two state committees for Texas REALTORS® and recently joined the Board of Directors for MetroTex Association of REALTORS®. Additionally, Thompson is a certified mentor for the Brian Buffini program and offers training to all of her agents

“As a non-compete broker, my goal is to support my agents,” Thompson said. “Helping them develop and grow successful businesses is my priority.”

Since opening on August 1, 2019, HomeSmart Stars has grown from one agent to 42, which leaves Thompson confident her team will increase to a hundred agents by the company’s first anniversary. The office serves buyers and sellers across the entire Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex. Agents speak many languages, including English, Spanish, Amharic, Arabic, Gujarati, Hindi, Italian, Swahili, Urdu and Vietnamese.

An official grand opening celebration will be held at HomeSmart Stars office in the Shops of Legacy located at 5717 Legacy Drive, Suite 250, in Plano on Tuesday, Feb. 11 from 4 to 6 p.m.
