Rhodes Team Sales Team

Russell Rhodes – Licensed Real Estate Consultant

I earned my BBA with a concentration in Finance and Real Estate from Texas Christian University.  I began my career with Arthur Andersen Consulting (i.e.  Accenture) and then transitioned to PepsiCo’s Corporate Audit Group.  Once I established a strong accounting and technical foundation, I decided to quench my thirst and desire to be an entrepreneur.  I joined forces in a startup apparel manufacturing company in Santa Fe that quickly grew from inception to $23 million in sales and was subsequently sold to a larger competitor.  I parlayed these financial resources along with my newly developed sales and marketing
knowledge into his ultimate passion…real estate!

In 2000, my family and I moved back to DFW to reunite with my father, a custom home builder, and my mother, a maven in residential sales, to launch a residential sales company, Rhodes & Associates.  Within seven years, our newly formed company became the number one real estate team in DFW out of 17,000 agents according to the Wall Street Journal. We have remained the number one seller of pre-owned DFW homes every year for the last 12 years totaling over 8400 clients and $3+ billion in sales.

I humbly embrace the magnitude of responsibility that my clients entrust in me to consult and protect them in one of their most important financial purchases.  I am dedicated to working hard, listening, following through, and exceeding their expectations every day.  I have a strict hiring prerequisite that ALL team members MUST have a “Servant’s Heart” which is non-negotiable.  My belief is that other professional skills can be taught; however, our team members’ overwhelming desire to ALWAYS do the right thing, no matter what it costs in time and/or money, must be innate and part of their DNA. Our team prides themselves on communication, expertise, dedication, and transparency.

My beautiful wife, Mandy of 30+ years, and I are blessed with three wonderful boys – Austin, Mitchell, and Cooper.  We are active in the Flower Mound community and enjoy boating, hiking, playing tennis, and being members of RockPointe Church.  Our family’s utmost desire is to strive to run the business in a way that pleases and brings honor to God. Please call me at (972) 955-3792.

Verna_smallVerna Rhodes – Licensed Real Estate Consultant

A North Texas resident since the mid-1970’s, I have enjoyed my career in the DFW real estate since 1977. My passions are my family, real estate, and technology. I am privileged to work alongside my husband Bo, a former custom home b builder and professional tradesman, my son and business partner, Russell, and my daughter Terri, along with two of my grandsons. I love to explore and apply new technologies that enhance our marketing and customer service capabilities. Please contact me on my cell at (214) 808-6146.

BoBo Rhodes – Licensed Real Estate Consultant

I am proud to say the DFW area has been my home for more than 30 years. My experience in the field in the home building industry is quite diverse. Over the past 45 years, I have been a certified home inspector, mastered several trades, and designed and built custom homes. When I joined my wife, Verna, and son, Russell, in 2002, this frontline experience brought a unique perspective and eye for quality to our business that complemented the team’s expertise in real estate. Working with my family to provide quality service to our clients is very fulfilling. Our lives are guided by traditional values: quality, integrity, and accountability. My spare time finds me fishing, be it competitively in tournaments or for fun and relaxing with my grandsons.

Jeremy Wages – Licensed Real Estate Consultant

I have lived in the DFW area all of my life and I literally grew up in the Texas Real Estate business. I have been professionally involved in Real Estate transactions since 2001 and I am blessed to be a 3rd generation family member on the Rhodes Team. It’s sometimes strange to be working with and referring to my mother as Terri and my grandmother as Verna but our professional standards would have it no other way.

Since joining the Rhodes Team in 2010, I developed a passion for helping home sellers to navigate the listing process.  Selling a house can be stressful and daunting for even the most prolific home sellers.  One of my primary goals is to help my sellers to net the most amount of money with the least amount of headaches.  There are a great deal of emotions in selling a home so it is my job to help a seller to feel at ease and understand their options.  I do represent home buyers as well and it is so much fun to watch a client to fall in love with their new home.  When representing a buyer it is critical to make sure the property they are buying is a good, solid home that can have fantastic resale potential.

When I am not representing clients I enjoy flipping houses.   I get a great level of satisfaction in watching a home transform and knowing that it will make another family very happy for years to come.  When I am flipping houses it is like nothing you see on TV because my process has little to no drama.  While each house has its own unique challenges I am able to navigate the process by having a proven formula of colors, materials, and vendors to transform my homes.  I am able to use my experience in flipping houses to help my real estate clients for all of their remodeling or make ready needs.

I have been overjoyed to have raised 9 kids within a 15 year age range.  My family and I are active in our community through church, sports, and various organizations in the area. We enjoy skiing on both snow and water.  We travel every year to a beach where we enjoy various activities from building sand castles to scuba diving.  Life has been an adventure and God has given us many blessings.

John Ryckeley – Licensed Real Estate Consultant

As a lifelong resident of Denton County, I am fortunate to be a member of The Rhodes Team where I get to help clients find their North Texas dream home or sell their North Texas home because they’re moving on to another adventure! Since 2005, I have enjoyed working with clients to buy and sell real estate and have consistently performed as a top listing and buyers agent, closing over 275 homes since 2019, with a volume over $130 million. Success to me means putting the needs of my clients first and treating each deal as my top priority with attention to detail, energy and integrity.

Prior to my work in real estate, I served the Flower Mound Police Department for 23 years where I retired as a Detective with a Specialty in Financial Crimes. My beautiful wife, Paula and I have 3 children and are members of St. Mark Catholic Church in Argyle. In my free time, I enjoy playing golf, cheering on the TCU Horned Frogs, the frustratingly-unpredictable Dallas Cowboys and proudly attending my children’s activities.

Expertise, Thoughtfulness & Integrity are three words I stand by to ensure I provide a successful transaction for each and every client.
If you have questions about the thriving DFW market or are ready to buy or sell, I’d love to earn your business and work for you!

Jennifer Allen – Licensed Real Estate Consultant

People say, family comes first. When a work opportunity brought a close family member to the DFW area, my husband and I made the decision to join them. With the decision made, we left Northern California for North Texas. We found the DFW area had much to offer a growing family. I am pleased to join the Rhodes team who demonstrate daily their servants hearts, going above and beyond for their community. I bring my extensive background in customer service, including new home sales with a local homebuilder, producing an intimate knowledge of building, home warranty, and the entire home buying process from a customer focused prospective. My husband Ross and I have been blessed with three wonderful children. Harper, age 7, and twins Andrew and Avery, age 4. They keep us smiling and extremely busy! With a bass fisherman in the family we spend a great deal of time outdoors, swimming, camping, and…fishing! I am personally rewarded by my work with animal rescue organizations, bringing together animals with their forever families. Real estate is a commitment, my passion.

Amy Jimenez – Licensed Real Estate Consultant

Born and raised in the small country town of Graham, Texas. I moved to Lubbock to study human sciences. After a few years, I knew the nursing industry was not where my heart was, and I transferred to the University of North Texas. It was there where I had the opportunity of a real estate internship and quickly found out that I loved every second of it. I graduated from UNT with concentrations in business, communication, and hospitality. I chose these three concentrations because I believe they were the perfect combination for my vested interest in the real estate world. While going to school, I accrued many years of experience in the hospitality industry. Helping people is my passion and I could not be more excited to be able to help individuals find their perfect dream home.
