Dina Addas is our contract to close specialist.  When a property goes into title, the responsibilities fall into Dina's arena, and she's very, very good at what she does. ​ Among her many duties, Dina is responsible for checking to make sure the contracts are filled out completely so there are no missing initials or signatures and all of the timelines are clear.  She's another set of eyes before the contract goes to our Keller Williams compliance department.  ​ Dina has a position which sometimes requires the patience of a saint.  Sometimes our clients don't realize the importance of timelines and aren't responding as quickly as needed.  Or the agent on the other side of the transaction might be dragging their feet.  Maybe the title company has dropped the ball, so it's all up to Dina to keep things moving so our clients are in compliance with the contract and are protected.  ​ Dina works very closely with our agents once the home is in title.  They have to rely on her to take care of the myriad of tasks whether they are representing the buyer or seller on the transaction. ​ Dina is also an integral part of our marketing.  She builds all of our fabulous and popular YouTube videos on our listings.  She is also invaluable in keeping our website current and appealing so visitors will keep coming back.  She's wonderfully creative and a loyal team member. ​

A typical day in my life…

I don't need an alarm to wake! My sweet kittens do that job for me at the same time every morning! When I go downstairs, Slippers heads for the food bowl and Clipper heads for the garden door. They have differesnt motives for waking me up! Be warned I'm not fully awake until I have my coffee! I then set up my 10 year old 5th grader on his laptop for virtual schoolwork. I'm at my desk from 8:00am to 4:00pm every weekday to assist our wonderful clients and agents. I am the Contract to Close Specialist for The Grisak Group and have my plate full juggling all the contract, emails and deadlines. I really feel as if I am "Mission Control" with my two large computer screens and constantly jumping from one thing to the other. There is never a dull day in real estate even at my "home office." In the evenings I love to enjoy time in my garden which is my haven.

I was born…

Cairo, Egypt

My favorite thing about Texas…

People are so friendly! When we were living in Katy, Texas, where people are super friendly, I used to get highly suspicious! Egyptians are freiendly too, but not as friendly as Texans! I also love the wide open space and the fact that I can drive a Dodge Ram and park with ease!

I’m listening to…

80's music! And anything prior to that era. I also love watching videos about home decor, gardening, plants, architecture, and historical and informational documentaries.

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be…

This has probably changed over the years, but right now I am very interested in Bonsai and I admire Peter Chen who has a Bonsai nursery in England. I would love to have dinner with him because he is a very old guy in his late 70s, and has a lot of wisdome about life in general, not just Bonsai.

My favorite food is...

Mediterranean, Indian, Thai and Cajun. Anything spicy too. I am always up for trying new food.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

A vet or a naturalist or a detective.

I’m inspired by…

Old and wise people who have many stories and experiences to share.

The one person who motivates me is…

My professor from college and my grandmother.

If I could change anything in the world, it would be…

I wish plastic and all polluting materials were never invented.

The perfect day would be…

All day at the beach with friends and family followed by an open buffet dinner of delicious Mediterranean food and wine.

My first job was…

Assistant to the Manager of an advertising company in Cairo.

My worst job was ...

I've enjoyed all my jobs. I have learnt something from each and every one!

My favorite escape…

The BEACH!!!

The one thing I wish I could really do well is...

Make fine jewelry and gardening.

The one thing I really wish I had is...

All I want is continued good health.

My life…

Has been constant travelling and I lived in so many places. I am very happy to have settled for a while here in Plano and am very proud that I have created a good life for my kids while being a single parent.

I’m currently working on…

I am constantly working on my garden and home. I love home decor and I keep getting ideas of what to add next. I'm always on the look out for the right piece especially at vintage stores. The same applies to the garden. It is a work in progress.

Always…

Strive to be the best you can be. And surround yourself with positive energy.

Never…

Never stop exploring and changing and evolving.

Favorite Quote…

It is an Arabic quote and I don't know it's origin but it translates into: "Do not postpone today's work till tomorrow."

Biggest Dream…

To travel and live by the sea or ocean.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

An untidy and messy kitchen.

Most people don't know this about me…

I appear to be quiet, but with my close friends and family I'm not!

More about Me…

I like to learn, explore and travel. I am dying to visit India one day because of the food, culture, ancient architecture, textiles, silver jewelry, and so much more. It is a very diverse and interesting country.
