During the past thirteen years Anne has been actively involved in all aspects of commercial real estate. 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. In January 2019 she opened her own commercial real estate firm after spending several years working with some of the finest real estate companies in Louisiana.
Anne has exceeded $156 million in transaction dollars during the past thirteen years with an average production of over $23.6 million annually during the past five.
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 steered her back into telecommunications with a chance 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. With the merger of Sprint/Nextel she took a few months off from corporate America; then she was fortunate to be offered a position to work in commercial real estate. 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 her church affiliations. She was elected to the North Louisiana Economic Partnership (NLEP) Board of Directors in 2020. Anne is married to Tom Dixon and they have three sons.
