See the DFW Top Producers of 2011, Including my Mom, Lisa Besserer, WHILE BEATING BREAST CANCER!!

See Which Dallas-Fort Worth Realtors Were The Top Producers of 2011, including a personal shout out to my Mom, Lisa Besserer, who was a top producer, but this year, she did it while beating Breast Cancer!

My Mom has been a top-producer at Briggs Freeman for the past several years, but this year was something extraordinary. She still managed to stay on top, but this time, with breast cancer. Mom, I am so proud of you. You had such a rough year and you persevered through it all. Many of our clients and customers never even knew my Mom, Lisa Besserer had breast cancer this past year. We kept it as private as we could, because we didn’t want our clients and friends to worry or think that we still couldn’t keep our business in tact.

Although, she won this award, 2011 was not all just glitz and glam and real estate success. Our family, especially my Mom was undergoing an enormous amount of stress that comes along with a family member battling cancer. If you’ve ever met Lisa Besserer, you know she is an amazing woman, but this year, everyone who saw what she went through knows how strong and dedicated she is. I have never seen such strength.

Although she had to go through the stress of all the tests, the waiting, the stays in the hospital, the surgeries, she persevered and you couldn’t keep her down for long… Right before she went under for surgery for her double mastectomy surgery, she was telling the Doctor about a house he should go check out that would be “perfect for his family.” She is truly passionate about her work and not even Cancer could keep her down, or EVEN keep her from being a top producer once again!

Briggs Freeman did amazing, once again. Our top producers had incredible sales numbers, but I couldn’t make this post without letting everyone know how proud I am of my Mother. She beat cancer last year and still managed to come out on top in business and in her health. The doctors say it was her positive attitude that got her through everything. She continues to be an amazing role model to me. I am so proud to call her my Mother and my business partner!

But, back to Briggs Freeman and all of our top producers…. This is an incredible company to work for and we had so much love and support from our family at the company. Keep reading to see how amazing the company did this year.
