What others are saying about
Beth Johnson

“It was a challenging listing: a small modern house on huge acreage out in the boonies. Plus we were insisting it go to a conservation buyer who’d carry on all our work restoring native prairies and woods on our “Osage Moon” wildlife preserve. Beth scored! We got the buyers we wanted at the price we asked. Beth was so thorough on everything and so honest. We had no need to sweat over contracts and paperwork, leaving us free to get the property in tip-top shape and enjoy our last weeks there.”

-- Amy Martin and Scooter Smith, Dallas

“We like Beth’s style and were so impressed with her hard-working handling of the sale of our Collin County home in Royse City that she became our trusted family Realtor. She then sold both our daughters’ Hunt County homes--Jennifer’s on rural acreage near Greenville and Jessica’s on Caddo Mills subdivision acreage. She has a “whatever it takes” go-getter attitude, and her professional marketing and astute advice on make-ready, repairs, staging, appraisals and qualifying buyers delivered results when other approaches fell short.”

-- Trish and Bill Fedrick, Jessica and Darin Crawford,
owners, Store It All Texas, Caddo Mills, TX

“Beth Johnson is our favorite realtor. As a kid who grew up in the military, Michelle moved a ton and has dealt with a few realtors both as a child and an adult. Beth far exceeded all we could want in a realtor to help us buy our home.

By getting to know us thoroughly, Beth was able to narrow down our options to a manageable range of listings. Thanks to her thorough knowledge of how property taxes and VA benefits work out and her extensive remodeling experience, she was able to help us find a home within our budget that we didn't realize we could afford. Her expertise also helped us avoid homes that would end up disappointing us and helped us prepare for a successful future with our home. read more

-- Michelle Fedorchuk and Jason Lawrence, Dallas

“To sell our green-built home on acreage on the outskirts of Austin, Beth helped us find an agent like herself -- long-time Realtor, heavily credentialed and experienced in green building, with deep added expertise in marketing green-built homes. She also helped promote and advise on that transaction. For our new home in the Metroplex, Beth and her lender helped us outcompete other buyers to get a unique property with large and private back yard in a picturesque, tree-lined neighborhood – and to favorably mesh the closing with that of our Austin sale. Beth was very hands-on and attentive, and offered good advice and perspective, on every step from read more

--Helen F. and Jason H., McKinney

“Savvy, diligent, and caring are words that describe Beth. Highly recommended by our well-known custom green builder, she lived up to her reputation! To build our cost-effective green home for our retirement years, she found us a hidden gem of a wooded creek lot in a close-in custom neighborhood yet at a terrific price. To make sure we got everything we wanted, she made sure we didn’t lose out to competing buyers, researched floodplain and tree ordinance answers, used her construction knowledge to advise on slope and cost challenges, coordinated the successful effort to change restrictions so we could build the smaller size home we wanted, and even negotiated a lower price between contract and closing!”

-- Nancy and Marty Griffin, Garland

“Beth’s expert marketing brought multiple offers and a quick sale of our passive solar earth-sheltered home.”

-- Mary Ella and Ray Cooper, Sachse

“Even in a tough market, we were confident that Beth would expertly handle our “3-pack” of transactions approaching our marriage—buying a house together and selling our individual houses. We highly recommend Beth! Her in-depth neighborhood and construction knowledge, and thoughtful advocacy during our search helped us get a Farmers Branch home just right for us. To sell our East Dallas and Far North Dallas properties, her help getting them ready, thorough marketing, and attention to detail took us smoothly through multiple offers, negotiations, inspections, appraisals and closings. One small example of how her experience helped us throughout the 3-pack: A seller’s home warranty saved hundreds of dollars for an unexpected read more

-- Bill and Sue Greer, Farmers Branch

“It was hard work getting my home of 40 years in The Colony packed up, cleaned up, and ready for pics and showings, but with Beth’s patient guidance I knew what did and did not have to be done to serve my interests. She helped every step of the way, and I knew anything she recommended was for my benefit. I did my part, she worked her tricks of the trade, it was under contract in 6 days, then closed in 27, top price among similar homes. Then she found me the perfect buyer’s agent for my new home out of state, who quickly found me just the home I was looking for -- not even on the market yet -- and I closed in short order. Whether working directly with Beth in North Texas, or with an equally expert agent she can find for you in other markets, you’ll be glad you chose Beth!”

-- Beth Harty, Winona, MN

“Expert, creative, connected, detail-oriented, tenacious, charmingly persuasive, patient, and a good communicator: Beth’s skill set helped me sell my Garland home and build a new ENERGY STAR home at a great price in a master-planned community and ready for move-in in only 5 months. My home features my interior design choices, choice lot location, perfect floorplan highlighting my library, and nice daylighting. With the energy upgrades Beth identified and negotiated, it needs 45% less energy to operate than a code-built home! read more

-- Janet B., Wylie

“We are extremely happy that we listed our home with Beth.  She continued to pursue back-up contracts even after we had a contract.  She was also a fantastic consultant for our new high-performance home.”

-- John Brooks, Architect and Kathleen R. Brooks, Landscape Designer, Plano

“From my vantage as a mortgage professional at one of the largest privately held mortgage lenders in the country who has worked for decades with the most experienced Realtors in the business, I can tell you from seeing Beth in action during my many positive experiences originating loans for her clients that she leaves nothing to chance in advantaging her buyers’ offers and protecting their interests through closing and beyond. Her professionalism shows itself throughout the process as her patience, perseverance, positive attitude, communication, and attention to detail serve her clients well!”

-- Adrienne Kirby, Loan Originator, NMLS # 218080, Gateway Mortgage Group

“Beth patiently and expertly advised us on what we did and did not need to do for what turned out to be years of weather-delayed make-ready and storm damage repairs to bring our 2-acre working farm in southern Denton County to market. She created in-depth materials including a special website and fabulous photos to market the custom design, special features, outdoor amenities, and green features of our 1981 passive-solar home with advanced thermal envelope and solar hot water, and our organic farm with drought-tolerant landscaping and shady forest of giant post oaks. The result was multiple offers, setting a top price for the neighborhood. The winning out-of-state buyer saw the marketing, talked to Beth at length, flew in the next day, was picked up at the airport and given an in-depth tour by Beth, and made an immediate offer.”

-- Laurie and Cal Harberson, Bartonville

“Interest, sales, and activity blossomed in our conservation development when Beth joined our team.”

-- Chris Allen, Project Manager, The Woodson Place Conservation Development - first development ever to be recognized under Texas Parks and Wildlife Department's Lone Star Land Steward Award

-- Genie Fritz, Dallas

“Her persistence, enthusiasm, and knowledge are unique in the marketplace!”

-- Chas Fitzgerald, President, Wilbow Corporation, Dallas

“Beth is the top energy efficiency Realtor in Texas and is at the top of our list for referrals! Pulling off a new home built just for us, on a lot of our choosing, within our budget and target location, with cost-effective energy upgrades negotiated specially by Beth—all within our required 6-month time frame from first contact with Beth until closing--was not much short of a miracle and we couldn’t have done it without Beth! As our Realtor she was not only fun but also steady and very professional through long days and late nights and the ups and downs of our search and contracting process. Beth and her husband Arthur Kuehne are a walking encyclopedia read more

-- Jerry and Linda Willman, Celina

“You’re the most on-top-of-it REALTOR I’ve ever met.”

-- unsolicited compliment from 15+-year veteran appraiser as I showed her my sellers’ listing, answered her questions, and provided her documentation

“I wake up every day still in love with my wonderful retirement ranch! My dream would not have been possible without Beth’s expertise, patience and support. From the moment I met her at an Earth Day event, she swung into action, found the perfect place, negotiated price and terms tailored to my needs, and problem-solved diligently throughout the process. Beth had my back every step of the way!”

-- Anita, Wise County

“I had seen Beth in action and knew she was the right one to handle a friend’s unique property that was languishing on the market under another brokerage. Beth was awesome and got the sale done in a quick-happy win-win-win for everyone concerned. Yeah Beth, you GO!!”

-- D’ Onna Price, DFW Texas

“...trustworthy, knowledgeable--helped us navigate our first home purchase in record time!”

-- Krishna Chaitanya Chava and Madhavi Chundru, Carrollton

“Beth’s and Arthur’s consulting services were invaluable for our major energy retrofit/remodeling project at our 1994 home that cut energy usage by more than half. Our home is now independently rated to outperform those built to more stringent codes of more than a decade later. Third-party rated energy usage went from 195% that of a 2006 built-to-code home to 92%. We wanted to make fact-based, data-driven choices that would provide reasonable cost payback, increase resale value, and contribute to environmental sustainability. With Beth’s and Arthur’s sound advice, we followed a total home system approach. They helped us find and work with an energy rating firm and evaluate its energy retrofit analysis specific to our home’s read more

-- Leslie and Tom K., Flower Mound, TX

“Beth worked very hard and was a true added value and our best advocate in our home purchase. We think she’s wonderful and recommend her to anyone who might need real estate services!”

-- Mark and Diane Harrell, Frisco

“When clients come to us to help them build their own custom home, Beth is our go-to source to help them with green building consulting, buying their lot or acreage, selling their North Texas home through her local office, or helping them find a qualified agent elsewhere to sell their out-of-area home.  We proudly worked with Beth and Arthur to build their personal home where they used practical, cost-effective techniques to achieve third-party green building certifications and energy efficiency 50% better than code.  read more

-- Bob Flores, President, North Texas Division, Owner Built Custom Homes, Inc.

“For our move from North Texas to Santa Fe, Beth researched and interviewed to provide us names of experienced Buyer’s Agents here who would be a good fit for our interests in green building, the arts, and native landscaping.  We had an excellent agent and buying experience and now have the perfect home for our new life!”

-- Shirlene Sitton and Jim Clement, Santa Fe

“With another agent, I had had no luck with the geodesic dome home in a rural subdivision in Quinlan I was selling as executor of a family member’s estate. Referred by a trusted source, I engaged Beth as my Realtor. She jumped into action with expert price analysis, staging, photos, marketing language, and characterizing the listing so all loan types were available to buyers. In Beth’s capable hands, the presentation to the marketplace was so effective that there were showings and inquiries every day, multiple offers, and in 5 days an executed contract at top neighborhood price from an out-of-state buyer who -- sight unseen – paid all-cash and closed a mere 21 days after the new MLS debut!”

-- Lisa Malone Rohr

“You’re at the top of your game. That’s not a compliment, it’s a fact.”

-- unsolicited compliment from 20-year veteran agent with a prominent Dallas firm, who was representing her buyer client, negotiating with me as I represented my seller client, as I finished my fourth year as a real estate licensee

“Nobody works harder or gives a better green home tour!”

-- Chris Miles, GreenCraft Builders, host of "House Talk" on KSKY Radio

“The consulting advice my builder and I received from Beth and Arthur was priceless, saving us hours of time and eliminating needless confusion! As we started on the journey for obtaining third-party green building certifications for our home on Cedar Creek Lake, they quickly got us up to speed, identified potential pitfalls in construction sequencing that could have jeopardized the certifications, and gave us numerous great tips! We will definitely seek out their guidance on our future projects.”

-- Michael Fladmark and Jean Bothe, Cedar Creek Lake, Tool, TX

“People who tour our home ask how they can find a green home – Beth is the answer.”

-- Paul Westbrook, passive solar design and active solar photovoltaic homeowner, Fairview

“Beth knows green building inside and out, has a good head for site issues relative to construction, has decades of experience in the Metroplex, and fervently serves the interests of her clients. Whether they need to buy a lot to build on, to sell their green home that I built or remodeled, or to sell their existing home so they can build a new home, I always wholeheartedly recommend Beth as the top Realtor of choice for my custom clients!”

-- Don Ferrier, President, Ferrier Builders, Inc. and Ferrier Custom Homes – Ft. Worth, TX

-- Anne J., Garland

“...a true student of building science. Nothing escapes her attention.”

-- William Peck, Architect, Lewisville

“Beth doesn't just do green. With her help I purchased an updated house in Northeast Dallas that awaits my potential energy upgrades. She is remarkably thorough, knowledgeable and detail oriented. Her persistence in solving problems and working with the seller’s agent allowed us to close rapidly. This saved me money. I highly recommend Beth Johnson.”

--John K., Dallas
