Dede Jenkins is the owner and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Texas Realty. She attended The University of Texas at Austin. When she received her license, Dede became a managing partner for a commercial brokerage and managed the research department division in Austin, Texas. Dede believes agents selling homes is a personal experience that she wanted to lead in and loves to help people succeed, so in 1980, when her partner decided to sell the residential franchise, Dede didn’t hesitate. She purchased the brokerage on her own and made it what it is today!
Dede had a great childhood that involved spending time with her huge family that included 2 sisters and one brother. Dede focuses on making her business family oriented, so she works with one of the most important people in her life, her husband Rick Jenkins. Dede met Rick on a blind date in 1973 and they were married in 1978. They have been together ever since! When she is not running the real estate world, Dede loves snow skiing, sailing, and curling up with a great mystery novel.
Her deep knowledge of the business and her love of people and her staff has helped her succeed in her field, making Berkshire Hathaway Texas Realty what a great brokerage it is today. She makes sure to be present and gets to know her agents as people. As Chief Executive Officer of this astounding company, Dede makes client satisfaction and agent success her top priorities.
