About Hartman Terilli

Two of us (Karen Hartman and Tobin Hartman) worked in the marketing and advertising industryfor 20+ years and one of us (Maggie) is part of the well-known Terilli family of restaurateurs. We’ve known one another for many years and both have invested in real estate separately. East Dallas (Lower Greenville, the M Streets, Lake Highlands and Lakewood) have been home since the 90’s. Sarah, also a licensed agent joined our team from commercial real estate and is the hardest working millennial on the planet.

Years ago,  Karen Hartman and Tobin Hartman fell in love and married in a romantic ceremony in a century-old dance hall in the Texas Hill Country. Not long after, we both quit our jobs in advertising, in one case selling out of a partnership in an ad agency, and officially became real estate agents. Our idea was to help others invest in homes as we had for so many years.

Together, we interviewed 14 of the top brokerages and decided to join Coldwell Banker due to the tremendous support the huge network gave our clients, as well as the openness the broker had to our marketing ideas.

The market has embraced our marketing-based, hard-working approach with open arms. We’ve had the privilege of helping countless clients find real estate success when buying or selling their homes. Just after one year in the business we were top real estate agents in Dallas and we never looked back. We love what we do and we do it well.

Meet Our Team

Karen Hartman

Coldwell Banker Realtor

Karen Cuskey-Hartman is a 20 year resident of East Dallas that has one mission in life – leave the world better than she found it.

Karen Hartman first accomplished this mission via her award-winning philanthropy and marketing; and in 2004, she was licensed so that she could bring the mission to real estate. She so enjoyed it that in 2015 she sold her interest in an advertising and promotions agency to join Coldwell-Banker full time. She has never looked back!

Karen’s marketing experience gives her clients a clear advantage. She sells homes quickly and uses clever tactics to break through the clutter. She often partners homes with like-minded, like hearted brands or charities for the purpose of benefiting both the listing and the brand/charity. For example, Karen has turned an empty home listing into an art gallery. The purpose? To cross pollinate high-income databases with the artist. This tactic not only sold the home in less than two weeks (previously on the market for triple digit days), it also sold $40,000 in art.

Karen currently sits on boards for Taylor’s Gift and Big Brothers/Sisters and she and her husband are grateful contributors to Munger Place Church.

Tobin Hartman

Coldwell Banker Realtor

Tobin has lived in East Dallas for more than 20 years, and has been buying, selling, renting and renovating real estate there for that same amount of time. Prior to getting licensed in real estate and moving to it exclusively, Tobin spent 18 years in the advertising media sales world. Within this world, he was required to strategically place his client’s brand message so that it reached the appropriate demographic with the strongest possible call-to-action.

In real estate, he says his job isn’t much different… Instead of promoting a Fourtune 500 brand message, he is promoting (or finding) what’s likely the largest asset many people will own in their lifetime. It’s the same, but much more personal.

Tobin’s core competency on the team is investment real estate. He buys, sells and renovates on his client’s and his own behalf. If you are looking to buy or sell an investment property, or simply have questions, reach out!

Maggie Terilli

Coldwell Banker Realtor

Maggie Terilli has lived in the DFW for over 28 years and has specifically resided in Est Dallas for 20+ years. She is our always-smiling supermom on a mission!

In fact, if her contagious smile and eagerness to help seem familiar, it’s because you’ve likely crossed paths before. Prior to getting licensed, Maggie was on the front lines of fun and customer service with the company that invented it – Southwest Airlines. She was a Dallas-based flight attendant for more than 20 years prior to getting licensed in real estate.

And oh yes, if her name sounds familiar, it’s because Maggie is a part of the Terilli family of East Dallas’ favorite Italian restaurant and networking hub – Terilli’s on Lower Greenville. Bottom line, Maggie is vastly networked and will use that network to lead the charge in buying or selling your next home. And because she is an east Dallas supermom, she is our go-to for choosing the right house for the right family seeking to raise kids in a specific neighborhood or school district.

Maggie is a proud Board Member of the White Rock Lake Foundation – founded by Jeannie Terilli. The Foundation’s purpose is to assist the Park and Recreation Department in restoration, improvement, maintenance, and preservation of the lake’s natural health and beauty for the benefit of the people and wildlife.
