Kay Wood is a native Dallasite and grew up in the Park Cities, attending Highland Park Schools. After high school, Kay enrolled at the Sewanee: The University of the South, where she earned a degree with distinction in art history. Before returning home to Dallas, she went to Austin to pursue two masters’ degrees, first in art history and later in media studies at the University of Texas. After a brief return to Tennessee to teach history of art and architecture at her alma mater, she came home to Dallas in 2005.
Shortly after her return to Dallas, Kay joined Briggs Freeman. Her interest in real estate developed out of countless hours spent at open houses and construction sites with her architect mother. Her background as a student and teacher of art and architecture also contributes to her interest in real estate, particularly in architecturally significant and historic homes.
Kay believes that each client has different expectations for their home and their home search. Just as each of her students had a different learning style, each of Kay’s clients has different hopes and objectives for their purchase, whether it’s an investment or their family dream home, and she constantly adapts to each client’s needs. She works to really listen to her clients and combines traditional customer service, networking and marketing with cutting edge technology to achieve the best and fastest results for her clients.
Kay has spent a lifetime exploring the city’s various communities. She specializes in the Park Cities, Preston Hollow, Devonshire, M-Streets, Lakewood, Uptown, Oaklawn, and North Oak Cliff neighborhoods and has ties to numerous other neighborhoods throughout the Metroplex. With partners Linda and Mike McMahon, she was part of Briggs Freeman’s Top Team Producers in 2008 and 2010. Now with partner Kyle Richards, Kay continues to deliver results for her clients.
Kay currently lives in North Oak Cliff with her husband and three children. She is an active member of the Junior League of Dallas, Alliance young professionals, is a board member of the Dallas Children’s Advocacy Center League, and volunteers regularly at her children’s schools.
