We had the good fortune of connecting with Alli Caudle and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Alli, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
My mother / partner, Cindi, has been in Real Estate for 15 years, so I’ve had the honor of watching her build her business. She loves what she does, works very hard, and I would say she’s a master of her craft. I’ve had a very diverse work experience, having been in PR for Dior in NYC to running events at Sunset Tower Hotel in LA. When the pandemic hit in 2020, and I was no longer able to continue event production, she offered me a partner position and I was HONORED. I got my license and moved to Dallas and started to work alongside each other, as well as living in the same city for the first time in over a decade. It’s been the greatest blessing. I’m thankful for her wisdom, patience and guidance every single day. I love this career, and my mother.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
We are Global Real Estate Advisors at Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty. I’m excited to be a mother-daughter duo. We bring our love for each other, and our love for home (and all its meaning) to our service in guiding others home. We are both innately optimistic, driven and we love people. The path to where we are today … was NOT easy! And I wouldn’t change a thing. Every obstacle we’ve encountered taught us, transformed us, and led us to a place of wholeness and gratitude in being able to wake up every day to a life we love. It’s fascinating that after living on different sides of the country for over a decade, we know live within 5 minutes from each other and are business partners! We complement each other in such a beautiful way, and I’m so proud of my mother and this career she’s built for herself. And I’m so thankful to be able to join her and shape it into our own.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Okay. I love this question. After living in NYC / LA for the last decade, I’m THRILLED to be back home. I see it with such a fresh set of eyes, and am inspired by its global culture in the heart of Texas. I’d always start with Mi Cocina Highland Park Village, followed by a stop to Park House for happy hour to watch the sunset over Downtown Dallas. I love the vibe of Deep Ellum, having lived in Brooklyn, there’s a great city energy over there – and you can always find live music. My mother and I are involved with the Dallas Arts District, and I feel it’s one of the coolest spots in the country. It’s state of the art (hehe) in terms of culture, performance, architecture, museums, etc. I’m excited about all the things to come, as well! I also enjoy the Dallas Arboretum for nature and spiritual connection, Bishop Arts for a funky time, and I’ll shoutout to Drake’s as one of the best dining experiences you could find anywhere. This city blows my mind with all it has to offer … and there’s always something new to discover.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I’d like to make a shoutout to my father, Craig Caudle! He has been instrumental in my transition into real estate. He flew to LA during the pandemic, we rented a U-haul and drove through the Hollywood hills in flames during an earthquake (true story). My mother and I formed Caudle Real Estate Group – CREG – which is a wink to our favorite human – Craig!
