Meet Harrison Polsky, the Principal of O N E Group at Compass RE in Dallas

Today we’d like to introduce you to Harrison Polsky.

Harrison, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I grew up in Manhattan and moved to Highland Park when I was 16. After HS, I attended SMU and graduated with a BA in International Economics, BA in Philosophy and also received a GMCP in Marketing. After college, I wasn’t really sure what I wanted to do, so I worked as a commercial analyst for a short while and also worked for the Dallas Mavericks in their marketing department. When the recession hit, I decided to go back to Grad School at Cox. Even after grad school, it was still extremely difficult to get a job. My wife suggested that I get back into real estate, but this time on the Listing/ Sale side since I love the spirit of the deal and the grind. It’s just something that I like… that feeling of creating your own business and the need to keep on grinding in order to survive. Getting to where I am now, has not been easy. Waking up every day at 5am and going to bed at 11pm almost everday. But nothing in life that is worth having is easy…and that’s what keeps me going.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Everyday is a challenge. Real Estate is a tough business. It’s 365 – 24/7. Finding balance in your life is tough and working through industry’s negative connotation that agents don’t provide value can be mentally draining. I work extremely hard to differentiate myself and my team from the rest. But it is that exact connotation that motivates me.

Alright – so let’s talk business. What else should we know about your work?
I formed O N E Group with a unique collective of real estate talent, where each member brings their unique core competency to the table in order to optimize the real estate experience. I am proud that our dynamic team embraces our Mantra of being ONE. We have no ego and that we all share the same goal, vision, and feel of belonging. O N E Group covers all facets of residential real estate. Me personally, I specialize in representing builders and developers, and luxury buyers/sellers in the Park Cities and Preston Hollow area. After our first year together, we rank within the Top 5% at Compass, which places us within the top 1% in DFW.

If you had to go back in time and start over, would you have done anything differently?
Honestly, probably nothing. I think all the mistakes I made taught me more than the things I did right.
