PCT: How long have you been a realtor? JD: More than 40 years. I started with my father.  PCT: How did you get your company to where it is? JD: Really you should talk to my daughter, Ashley DuncanConlon. She’s the one that brought our company to the status we have today. She made us the number one Century 21 office in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. PCT: What is your secret to success? JD: It’s not really a secret, but just get up and go to work. The one step to success is just to show up. But now it’s not so simple since we have Internet. Now you can work from your car, home, or wherever.  PCT: Do you plan on retiring any time soon? JD: As long as I can get up and go I’m going. You know, like when I’m at Lions Club. I take down 15 to 20 referrals. That’s the greatest compliment you can give someone.  PCT: What area do you specialize in? JD: I do a little bit of everything. I don’t really differentiate. But I grew up here and back then you couldn’t just specialize in one area because things always pick up. I’ve done more units on the residential side. Commercial contract is more specific on time. You have to have everything on certain dates. I have a lot of my accounts because of the relationships I make. PCT: What advice can you give others? JD: Well, old realtors never die they get listless. That’s the key to it, having a listing on the property, you know, customers who list with us and stay with us until it’s time to go. We put them on websites like Blue Book, magazines. Making sure you’re out there. Cross your t’s and dot your i’s.
