Over the past three months, Eddie Wilbanks, Bret Whitfield and his team, Grecia “GG” Garza and his team and Francisco Rizo and his team, among five other luxury agents, have all affiliated with the Dallas office of the Beverly Hills-based brokerage.

Whitfield, which has closed $33 million in the past 12 months, is one of the principal founders of the Whitfield Property Group.

Garza has closed $20 million in the past 12 months and comes to the Agency after a 9-year stint at Rogers Healy and Associates. Like Whitfield, Garza has been recognized in recent years by Real Producers Magazine And Magazine D for his performance in the industry. Dallas Modern Luxury Magazine also recognized Garza as one of the top luxury professionals in the region over the past three years.
