Cortney Bailey has spent more than 15 years in real estate but didn’t start in the field.
“After pursuing a career in broadcasting, I began taking classes from UCLA’s Architecture and Design School and fell in love with learning about the various types of homes and the building process,” the Dallas native said.
Her real estate career began in Los Angeles in 2008 at a boutique-style high-rise still in the hardhat stage.
“I was able to watch the high rise being built from ground up and worked alongside the design team as we sold the building,” she said.
With Douglas Elliman Real Estate, she aims to provide a “personalized concierge experience” to ensure the process goes as smoothly as possible for clients.
Now that you’ve been a real estate professional
for a while, if you could go back in
time and give yourself any advice, what would it be?

What is the best thing about being a real estate agent?
Handing over the keys to my clients as they step into the next chapter of their lives brings me joy.
What is your
outlook on the Dallas market?
I was born and raised in Dallas and have watched it grow into the vibrant, bustling, and incredible city it has become. I see Dallas thriving even more in the next decade as people continue to move here.
Can you give us a fun fact about yourself?
I consider myself an amateur cook. On any given day, you can find me and my 5-pound yorkie, Gus, getting creative with a new recipe — not only do I sell kitchens, I also love to cook in mine.
