Our Team Leader, Laurie Shipman, was introduced to Real Estate as a young adult by her REALTOR parents. She has stayed in the industry ever since! Starting her career in a REALTOR support role, she learned what it takes to buy and sell homes in DFW. She then joined the mortgage industry. After a successful run in the lending arena, she made the move to Title. Her combined knowledge of Real Estate and Lender roles made Laurie the perfect candidate for a title company position. Starting as an Escrow Assistant, she mastered escrow work from opening the title order, curative research, funding and dispersing. Laurie quickly moved into an Escrow Officer position. Now in her 17th year as an Escrow Officer in the area, Laurie is right where she belongs. As the Escrow Team Leader at Freedom Title Lewisville – Frisco, she guides our group of talented professionals by developing proactive systems that will result in smooth closings for our clients.
Laurie lives with her husband, Michael, of 25 years. They have two sons, Cody and Dylan. Laurie is a member of the Praise Team at Church and for more fun, she loves spending time with her family, fishing, camping and hiking.

In 2007 Carly earned her degree in Human Development from the University of North Texas. Carly enjoys spending time with her husband and her two boys as well as dabbling in technology and photography.
Medea Richey – Office Manager
Medea Richey comes to us with over eight years of Real Estate sales experience as a REALTOR with RE/MAX DFW Associates. When there are multiple companies in one building, you need someone that is overseeing the “big picture”. Medea manages to think of everyone in our office and is a huge support as we navigate through agent meetings, files, closings and classes. Medea’s previous management positions were with international law firms, Baker & Botts, LLP , Jones Day, and the Texas law firm, Winstead P.C. This was a perfect combination for our Office Manager, giving Medea experience working with both the Real Estate and the legal side of the business. Medea, like Katy, will always be ready to help with a marketing event or support our clients with their marketing efforts.
Medea enjoys spending time with her husband, Lance, and children Jack and Alexis. If she could chose, she would be traveling and fulfilling her love for the outdoors. When she isn’t traveling, you might see her singing in a band at one of your local establishments. Last but not least, her dog Ty (she calls him her 60 lb. toddler) is near and dear to her heart.
