Rogers Healy – Honorary Chair & Emcee
Rogers Healy, a native Texan, has lived in Dallas for the majority of his life. Before moving to Dallas, Rogers lived in Corpus Christi and San Antonio. Rogers and his family moved from South Texas to Dallas, in the early 1990’s, so he and his sister could attend the Highland Park schools. Rogers instantly fell in love with everything Dallas had to offer, especially the beauty and uniqueness of the homes and neighborhoods. Rogers’ real estate career started in college. More than half of SMU’s students are from out of state, so the students constantly found themselves looking for someone to help them find a place to live. “It is always rewarding helping friends find new places to live. I love being an ambassador for Dallas, it is a personal thrill for me. It was a natural fit to enter the world of real estate. I haven’t looked back since.” For several years, Rogers had the good fortune of being associated with some of the nation’s most respected real estate professionals. When the time was right, he started pursuing his dream of owning his own real estate business. Rogers Healy and Associates Residential Real Estate was formed in 2007. The business has been built by taking a non traditional approach, to a traditional business. “Being able to mentor and manage, based on what I truly love about real estate has been the biggest thrill of being a business owner. Our success as a company has been attributed to working among people I have the utmost respect and admiration for.” In 2009, Rogers was named one of the Top 30 Realtors under the age of 30 in the country by Realtor magazine. In the same year, he was invited to be a part of the National Association of Realtor’s YPN Advisory Board. in 2009, Rogers was named a finalist for NAR’s “Pioneer Award. In 2010, the Dallas Business Journal named RHA one of the “Best Places to Work.” In 2011, the Dallas Business Journal named Rogers Healy one the “Top 40 under 40,” recognizing DFW’s up and coming business leaders.
