In Loving Memory of Charles P. Freeman

In Loving Memory of Charles P. Freeman

Our offices at Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty are mourning the passing of our president emeritus Charles P. Freeman, who died after an 8-month battle with cancer.

Robbie Briggs fondly remembers his long-time business partner and friend, saying, “He will leave us a huge hole that can not be filled. We will miss his humor, his friendship, his love, his loyalty, his dignity, his wisdom, his irreverence, his integrity, and his presence.”

Briggs and Freeman merged their companies in 1993, creating one of Dallas’ largest and most successful realty firms. Last year, they decided to become a franchisee of acclaimed Sotheby’s International Realty.

Briggs commented, “As Len Bourland says: ‘In my house are many mansions; now there is one with a Charles Freeman open house sign, and that’s where the fun people are!’”

Funeral arrangements and a full obituary are pending. Charles Freeman will be dearly missed by his family here at BFSIR, and our hearts go out to his loved ones during this time of loss.

When I arrived at the office on Monday morning for the meeting (that I hadn’t known was cancelled) the mood in the room was somber. There wasn’t a dry eye around, but everyone in the room went around and told a story about Charles, which quickly lightened the mood. Most of the anecdotes were hilarious and told in a way that made it feel as if Charles was still right there with us.  People were laughing and crying at the same time.  He was truly a unique man with an amazing personality and sense of humor. He touched the lives of everyone that came into contact with him and I am so proud to have called him my boss. We will miss you so much, Charles. His presence and impact on Briggs Freeman will be felt long after he is gone.
