Devin Holloway


Devin Holloway
REALTOR®
Certified Home Marketing Specialist
(817) 437-7068

Devin Holloway is a Texas Realtor who specializes in both historical homes and new Builder homes. This dichotomy stems from unique circumstances, as he has worked with older homes in sales and contracting in multiple markets, from Chicago, to the Bay Area, to Fort Worth’s Fairmount district, as well as having 10+ years’ experience working for a new home builder. “The markets are different, and the buyers are different,” Devin explains, “but they’re still looking for that same level of comfort, peace, and enjoyment. Some people like to work on old cars, some people like to speed around in new ones, I think on one level it can be that simple”. What’s not simple, Devin believes, is the buying process for each. Devin’s negotiating skills take into account different elements in both markets, as well as recognizing what you, as a buyer, should watch out for when looking at long term enjoyment of your investment.

Devin’s other interests include anything outdoors, stone masonry, jazz, and motorcycles, not necessarily in any order. He speaks fluent Spanish, Italian, and German, and has a degree in Organizational Management. If you’re looking for a Realtor with market knowledge, architectural sensitivity, and business born common sense, consider a conversation with Devin before you jump into the fray of today’s real estate storm.

(845) 313-4109

Born and raised in Orange County, New York, I always dreamed of living in Texas. I would stay with my Aunt and Uncle every summer in San Antonio, and I always knew I would live in Texas one day. I received my bachelor’s in Kinesiology from Marywood University, in Scranton, Pennsylvania. After graduation, I moved across the country to Arizona, where I would meet my husband, who just happened to be from Texas! I have lived in and around Fort Worth for over ten years now and am happy to call it home. I currently live in North Fort Worth with my husband, Justin, and daughter, Phoebe Dot.

With 10+ years in customer service, you could say that I love working with people. Through my own experience, I know that buying and selling a home can be a stressful time in a person’s life, but I’m here to guide you through it and make it as painless as possible.

In my free time I love to run, and read. Traveling with my husband and daughter is probably my favorite thing to do, though!
