During the past ten years Anne has been actively involved in all aspects of commercial real estate, handling both brokerage and leasing services in the Louisiana and East Texas areas. Her experiences reach the full spectrum of commercial real estate including investment (income producing), industrial, office, retail, vacant land and new development real estate. Anne is comfortable in a board room making a presentation to a large audience, sitting one-on-one across a negotiating table in heated conversations, or just walking a property with a new client. From her first year in the real estate industry she has averaged almost $12 million in sales, leasing and consulting transactions. She has exceeded $107 million transaction dollars during the past decade – with totals for 2015 and 2016 exceeding $69 million.
For many years Anne was a top executive in the telecommunications industry. Her primary focus was marketing, sales and sales management, but she is no stranger to the financial side of corporate America. During the late ‘90s she was offered an opportunity to work with Merrill Lynch where she earned a Series 7 Securities Broker’s License. A move to Texas resulted in her accepting an officer position as Vice President of First State Bank of Austin where she was instrumental in opening the first and subsequent in-store branch banks. These financial experiences led her back into telecommunications with an opportunity to work with FCC licensing and lease negotiations which eventually lead to her business entity accomplishing long term financing via an Initial Public Offering of Common Stock for a start-up wireless telecom company, Heartland Wireless Communications. This business entity was eventually sold to WorldCom. In the early 2000’s she accepted a position as Regional Manager with Nextel Communications with responsibility for North Louisiana and East Texas which brought her back to North Louisiana. With the merger of Sprint/Nextel she took a few months off from corporate America and was subsequently offered an opportunity to work in the commercial real estate brokerage industry allowing her to remain in Louisiana. Her focus always remains on maximizing the return on investments for her clients. Her strengths include a unique advertising approach and strong negotiation skills.
Anne obtained a BS in Business Administration from Northwestern. She was chosen by her peers to present the Industrial Market Summary and the Office Market Summary for the Real Estate Trends Conference presented by the Commercial Investment Division of Northwest Louisiana Association of Realtors. She has also studied and successfully completed the educational and portfolio requirements for the prestigious CCIM designation from the Commercial Investment Real Estate Institute.
Anne is a true believer in community service. Her passion for activities which allow her to give back to the community has resulted in leadership positions with such organizations as Rotary International, Business Executives International, Salvation Army, American Red Cross and numerous church affiliations. Anne is married to Tom Dixon and they have three sons.
