A lifelong member of Highland Park United Methodist Church and avid volunteer with longtime Dallas nonprofit Hope Cottage Pregnancy and Adoption Center, Taylor Gromatzky’s passion for community and generous attitude off the clock mirrors her role as a real estate agent. She has been a top producing agent at Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate five out of the past six years where she and her mother, Kim, work as a team. When she’s not treating clients to brunch at Hillstone, the Dallas native is either traveling or relishing in Park Cities traditions, such as sitting at the corner of Preston Road and McFarlin Boulevard to watch the Park Cities Fourth of July Parade – just like she did as a child.

What is the best advice you received when beginning your career? Give it 5 years and if you don’t like it or it hasn’t worked out after 5 years then reevaluate. Also, if it isn’t fun don’t do it.

What is your business philosophy? Treat people as you would like to be treated. Stay excited about the business as buying a home is often the biggest investment for a person or family so being excited to help them through the process keeps it fun for them.

What inspires you? My family and travel.

If you could tell 16-year-old you anything, what would you say? This too shall pass.

Where is the best place for a business power lunch in Park Cities or Preston Hollow? Hillstone on Preston Road. It is the perfect location between Park Cities and Preston Hollow with the best, fun atmosphere to conduct business. I have literally gone over listing agreements while having brunch with client’s there and they loved it.

What is your fondest Park Cities or Preston Hollow memory? The annual Fourth of July Parade. I grew up on West University and we still go to the parade every year and sit on the corner of Preston and McFarlin.
