Phyllis Browning Company Celebrates 29 Years in Real Estate

Posted on March 30, 2018

April 1st, 2018 marks the 29th anniversary of PBC’s founding date. Started in 1989 by CEO and Chairwoman, Phyllis Browning, the luxury real estate firm extended the Browning family’s influence and strong ties in the community. Since its opening day, PBC, which now includes five office locations led by Jennifer B. Shemwell, has been honored with countless awards and its agents continually rank as top REALTORS® in the area. Among the 200+ agents at PBC that are committed to providing “The Very Best” in real estate is a very special group of 27 agents that have been with the company since it was a quaint one-office operation in Alamo Heights.

With PBC since its first day,  Sally Juvenal, REALTOR®, has held many roles over the years. She says about her time with the brokerage, “If you are lucky enough to have an opportunity that could change your life, reach out and grab it. That’s what happened to me the day Phyllis asked me to join her in her new real estate office. Under Phyllis’s leadership and now Jennifer’s direction, the company is forging ahead into the high-tech world.”

When asked what they loved most about working at PBC, additional agents with more than 20 years of experience with the company had this to add:

Kate Crone, REALTOR®

“I love PBC because when I go into the office, there is a happy, busy, productive, welcoming atmosphere – the receptionists are calm and cheerful, Irma and Nelly are willing and helpful with those of us who have been through so many iterations of handling paperwork. Agents like one another and are happy to see one another – it all comes from the top! The new office is such a wonderful environment.”

Beatrice McFadden, REALTOR®

“It is a friendly place where people help each other achieve their goals. The company provides all the tools an agent needs for success and gives support for all who work there.”

“Over the past 20 years, I have seen this company grow and mature into the largest independent real estate brokerage firm in San Antonio.

“Perhaps because the company is family owned and operated, PBC has always had the feeling of a large diverse family rather than a big corporation. Our family stands strong and united in goal setting, education, guidance, training, management style, support, tools and encouragement. Whatever our individuals strengths are, PBC has our backs to help us all develop into our own very best self.”

Charlotte Leddy, Broker Associate

“The hardworking staff cares so much about helping us be more successful in serving our clients.”

Alison Barrow, REALTOR®

“So many reasons why I love PBC, but I guess I would say the people that work at PBC are my family.

I am honored to be a part of this successful company and feel truly blessed to have been here for so many years.”
