We had the good fortune of connecting with Dylan Green and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Dylan, how do you think about risk?
I’ve been attracted to risk my entire life (for better or for worse). Taking calculated risks and leaning into areas of opportunity has been a major theme of my 20s. From playing in bands to opening a hotel to running my own brand design company I have put myself in a number of arenas that have posed monumental adversity but a promise of a good time.
What should our readers know about your business?
I became a licensed real estate agent in 2022 with Rogers Healy and Associates. This was a decision that had never crossed my mind in my entire life, but after I purchased my first home and learned from the best (shout out to my agent Nakeisha Smith!) I was inspired to try something new. It has been the most difficult and rewarding experience. A lesson that has really resonated with me in this process is that what you put in is what you get back. Real Estate is all about relationships and earning trust, and in there’s no limit to how much of that our world needs.
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?
This is probably my favorite question anyone could ever ask me. I am known for my tours of the cities I’ve lived in and Dallas is no exception. I keep my route pretty central to the city but here’s a version for y’all to use for your next visitor:
1. Grab a coffee at Murray St Coffee – say hi to Liz and Doug for me
2. Breakfast at Unleavened in Lakewood – my favorite is a the steak bowl with a pear ginger VYBES.
3. Cut over to DMA for the best free art gallery you’ll ever experience
4. Swing through the Design District – Haas Moto Museum, Benny Jacks Antiques and LuLa B’s Antinques are necessary stops.
5. Back north! Stop by Central Market to grab a bottle of natural wine and a charcuterie board.
6. Drive over to White Rock Lake, spread out the blanket and watch the love birds, turtles, and ducks while you enjoy your wine.
7. Back to the Airbnb for a siesta and shower.
8. Head to Bishops Art District – on the way to dinner at Written by the Seasons (say hi to Chris and Alyssa) grab a cigar at Cigar Art.
9. After dinner stroll down to Reveller’s Hall. Kevin will probably be playing extremely complex and beautiful guitar, which is a perfect backdrop to the cigar and cocktail you’ll be enjoying.
10. Feeling energetic? Hop in an Uber and get over to Apothecary. Ask Marco to whip you up a LIT and follow it up with a Pekin Tom, which is arguably the best cocktail in Dallas.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I say without hesitation my parents. I’ve never had a mentor, and have always wanted one, but have been blessed with two very resilient, creative, and youthful parents. They’ve stood by me and supported every wild endeavor I’ve pursued.
