This month, the pages of Park Cities People have been filled with photos of elementary school carnivals and notices of upcoming Dads Club meetings. I’ve never thought of these events as the incubators for big-business deals … until I read the November issue of Texas Monthly. That issue includes a story by Jason Sheeler — called “Give Me Shelter” — that looks at the high-dollar properties in and around the Park Cities through the prism of Allie Beth Allman agent Erin Mathews. According to Sheeler, Mathews was the chair of the Bradfield Elementary School carnival in the early ’90s, at the same time that the school’s Dads Club was led by Robbie Briggs, the president of Briggs Freeman. Within a year, Mathews had left her job at Neiman Marcus to sell real estate.
