Woman-Owned Boutique Brokerage Serves Growing Dallas-Fort Worth Metro

MADISON, N.J. (Aug. 26, 2021) – ERA® Real Estate, a global franchising leader within the Realogy family of brands, announced today that Brawn Sterling Real Estate, based in Midlothian, Texas, has affiliated with the ERA® brand.

Broker/owner Erica Texada established the company in 2016. The brokerage currently serves Northern Ellis County and the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. Last year the firm’s 16 agents were responsible for nearly $26 million in sales volume.

With a population of 35,000, Midlothian serves as the center for the rapidly growing southern suburb of the Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area. According to Midlothian Economic Development, the area has doubled in population since 2010.  It remains a highly desirable place for semi-rural living, business expansion and workforce development. Midlothian is home to a new Google data center, the research and development and manufacturing hub of the health and wellness brand, Sunrider Manufacturing, and the new Methodist Midlothian Medical Center, a five-story hospital with 80 beds.

  • Texada will leverage the ERA® training platform to help increase agent productivity, with a focus on generating listings and maximizing the ERA marketing and listing tools.
  • ERA’s product suite, including RealSure®, ERA Moves and the Buyer Follow Up program, will serve to differentiate the firm in the Midlothian market.
  • Texada started her career as a bankruptcy and foreclosure analyst before transitioning to real estate; financial counseling plays a central role in the firm’s value to clients.
  • The median sales price in the market is approximately $383,557.
  • Known for its highly diverse team, the firm serves a large percentage of clients relocating to the area for work, as well as move up buyers from Dallas-Fort Worth seeking more space outside of the city.
