Elevating the Business of Real Estate
UNDENIABLE SOPHISTICATION. UNCOMPROMISING DISCERNMENT. UNMATCHED INDUSTRY KNOWLEDGE.
These are the distinctive traits of Compass Real Estate’s Ilene Christ and Missy Woehr. Uniting a combined three decades of experience with a proven track record of being at the forefront of Dallas’ luxury real estate market, the duo is bolstered by a commitment to excellence and a passion for the homes and neighborhoods that make the city unsurpassable.
Born and raised in Tulsa Oklahoma, Missy didn't consider a career in real estate until she moved to Dallas. From there it was a very short time before she became a recognized producer among the top one percent of agents in Turtle Creek. It was the Byron Nelson Golf Championship that brought her here decades ago and she hasn’t looked back since.
Today, Missy is regarded among her peers as THE source for Dallas sales history, zoning changes, homeowners’ covenants, and the latest market statistics. She also offers a wealth of information on local schools, restaurants, galleries and trade resources.
In addition to helping her clients buy and sell luxury properties, Missy has marketed and sold some of the most exclusive condominium residences in Dallas in record time and for the highest possible price, including The Tower Residences at The Ritz-Carlton and Museum Tower. For the last several years she has been responsible for more than 85% of sales a gated upscale community located on the Katy Trail in Turtle Creek. The bottom line - Missy markets for results.
As a local expert with global reach, Missy has a strong footing in what’s happening in Dallas neighborhoods, but also leverages her relationships to navigate the condo and single family market both locally and around the world.
“I pride myself in doing the research and knowing the neighborhoods and buildings inside and out. I'm passionate about helping clients find the right property to fit their lifestyle and really listen to where they are with their families and careers. I'm always looking forward to what a client’s next move might be, and how I can help them make financially sound decisions as they embark on those critical home and lifestyle changes. Helping people find their perfect home is my passion,” says Missy.
Missy currently holds a real estate Broker’s license in the state of Texas, and previously served as a managing broker overseeing 100+ in-town agents. Prior to entering the real estate industry, she held a successful management career at one of the largest telecom companies in the U.S.
In addition to real estate, Missy serves on the Board of Directors for Uptown Dallas, Inc - one of the first Public Improvement Districts in the region - and is also actively involved in Friends of the Katy Trail and The Turtle Creek Association. For more than 20 years, Missy has lived in Uptown and Turtle Creek neighborhoods of Dallas with her husband Gus and their Scottish terrier named Jaeger - which everyone in the neighborhood knows. If you’re looking for a trusted partner in the housing industry with local expertise, strategic negotiation skills, and unmatched client service, Missy is the agent for you..
Ilene H. Christ gained razor-sharp sales and negotiation skills as well as an ease with numbers during her 14 years as trader on Wall Street. While in New York, she also obtained an exquisite sense of urban living at its best, all of which she brings to her real estate clients today. Residing in Dallas since 2001, she specializes in vertical living.
From baby-boomers wanting to down-size to young professionals looking for their first home, Ms. Christ is the perfect fit for anyone considering high-rise living. With new buildings sprouting throughout the city, especially near downtown, the opportunities for buyers are plentiful.
It takes, however, a Realtor® well familiar with HOA dues and the general rules and regulations of association living. Someone who knows how to look at the budget and understand exactly what you get for your fee. Having served as the treasurer of her own condominium association, she knows the ins and outs of thick HOA documents. And she knows how to protect her clients in the transaction process.
“Confident in density,” as she says, Ms. Christ has participated in 85% of the transactions within one well-known Turtle Creek condominium. She has renovated and re-sold several of her own high rise properties through the years, and she knows how to spot a good “re-do.” This, along with her analytical approach to a property’s market history, allows her to find good condominiums with future investment potential for her clients. The proof of the number of clients already well served is in the high percentage of her referral business.
Ms. Christ’s focus on urban living is also reflected in her volunteer activities. She is an active member of the Turtle Creek Association, the Friends of the Katy Trail and the Lee Park and Arlington Hall Conservancy. In 2008, she served on the committee to “Light Up Lee Park.”.
