Corliss Birks chose Real Estate as a career because it provides a platform to serve others. When asked what some of her objectives are when working with clients, Corliss stated, “Respect, quality service, and gaining a clear understanding of each customer’s specific needs is what every client deserves… and this is the foundation I begin with.”
Corliss has a strong work ethic, and she believes that everything – personally and professionally -- should be done with integrity and honesty. “I strive to live by my personal philosophy which is, to do all that I do to the Glory of God. This is one of the reasons why CENTURY 21 Mike Bowman, Inc. is such a great fit for me,” Corliss states. “Mike Bowman has built his company and his business with the same standards I hold dear -- those of honesty, integrity, and commitment to serving clients with excellence and professionalism. I am proud to be part of the Mike Bowman team.”
Corliss began her working career in Retail Management, working a total of 13 years with a national retail chain. She then moved from retail into the travel industry when she went to work for a major air carrier. At that company she worked as a flight attendant for over 25 years. Corliss also worked on the management side as a manager in flight service, and as a flight attendant trainer and emergency procedures trainer.
“Whether my clients are looking to sell their home, build a new home, or purchase a previously owned home, I am dedicated to helping them achieve their goals, and I don’t mind going the extra mile to make it happen. I work hard to make my client’s real estate transaction pleasant and as hassle-free as possible. It is quite rewarding to see the joy on a client's face when I either tell them their house just sold, or give them the keys to their brand new home.”
Corliss was born and raised in Fort Worth. She has been married to her husband, Ozell, for 34 years. They have four adult children.
In addition to Real Estate, Corliss enjoys sewing, scrapbooking, and reading. She also sings in the choir at her church.

Testimonials:I am so pleased that Corliss Birks worked with us in getting the home that was just right for our family. She made a very stressful ordeal much more manageable by consistantly maintaining contact with us and all the other parties. She does her job so well but the thing that sets her apart is her genuine care for us. It shows in the way she offers words of encouragement to us when we were struggling. Corliss Birks is one of my favorite people.
- Benjamin and Trinity Hylton
Corliss Birks was very professional and responsive to all my questions. I would use Mrs. Birks again in the future.
- Erica Jones
We felt that Corliss's kind but not intrusive updates & checking in on us was extremely important to us. She sent updated listings to us as we asked. Also kept in touch without pressuring us as for those two years, she was very considerate of our situation. I think the most kind statement regarding Corliss is that we felt like so comfortable talking about this most important time on our lives that to us - she felt like family. We will miss her dearly & we applaud her company for having such a charming & hard working employee!
- Bob and Monica Bausch
My ratings tell the story. Corliss was absolutely excellent in every category! Corliss did an excellent job in communication between the buyer and seller. She was always available to answer the phone and discuss all aspects of the transaction. She was out of the country for a short time but contacted me in advance, got with me as soon as she returned, and even made a quick call to check on me while she was out of country. Her communication skills, availability, and willingness to put in extra effort at every step could not have been any better! Corliss Birks was a wonderful real estate agent and more than that, a wonderful person. It was a blessing to meet her.
- Justin Jones
Corliss was not only professional but also very friendly and warm in all of her communication with us. When I had unexpected surgery she dropped off a home cooked meal for my family and was so thoughtful and concerned. She made sure that all of our needs were met at all times and was very prompt in all communication. She was incredibly detailed in the handling of all of the paperwork and issues that came up. We felt confident that she was representing us to the very best of her ability and that we were in good hands with her.
- Kip Atwell
Corliss was great and knew exactly what she was doing, She was amazing! Her patience with us through the whole process was exceptional. Many many thanks!
- Juan Zengotita
I was referred to Corliss Birks when selling my house and am so grateful for it. When meeting face-to-face for the first time she showed me all the background information she had already put together and explained the market in great detail. I was impressed at how prepared she was and confident about the plan we set to sell my house. The house was on the market for 4 days, multiple offers were received and I accepted one above my asking price - this same outcome may not be guaranteed for other sellers, but in my case I think this success in part was due to how the sell was handled. All in all, I would highly recommend going to Corliss for selling or buying in the DFW area.
- Monserrat Amezcua, Mansfield
Corliss Birks treated us like family. She explained every small detail so my wife felt comfortable with the whole process. We really didn't have to deal with anyone else because she was always willing to help. She even kept in contact with us during the times when we were just waiting on closing and there was nothing left for us to do. Our children look at her as family now and so do we. Maybe it was destiny for us to give up on our home search a year ago only to find her. She was perfect from start to finish.
- Roy and Nicole Hall, Grand Prairie

- Marcus Ayala
Corliss Birks exceeded our expectations in every way. As a first-time homebuyer, we were unsure and had many questions. She patiently listened and walked us through the entire process, reassuring us that we would find the right home. From negotiating our contract (beating out 4 other offers), to helping us understand each phase of the home buying journey, Corliss was a pleasure to work with.
- Andrew Gentry
I've known Corliss for several years and I know her character and the kind of person she is. A close friend of mine recently used her in buying a house and couldn't say enough good things about the experience. Though I had two other friends in real estate I confidently selected Corliss to represent me and I was not disappointed. She did an outstanding job and I would recommend her to others.
- Jane Weeks
We had used Corliss' services presviously and felt very comfortable with her. She was attentive to our needs and wants when looking for a home. We would use her again and would highly recommend her again. Corliss cares about her clients and wants them to be happy, even if it means driving several long trips to show us potential properties.
- James Higgins
Corliss helped me find a home 18 months ago when my parents, both in their 80's, agreed to come live with me. Corliss was diligent in helping me look for areas that would be acceptable, in my price range, and ready to move in. I could not have asked for one that would work harder for me, keeping all our needs in mind. She texted me one evening about 10 o'clock that she had found another property that had just came on the market. We had an appointment the next morning at 9 am. Due to her diligence, we were the first to see this property, first to make an offer, and we got the perfect house for us! Her detail on how to be prepared to buy and going through the mortgage process was invaluable. I had everything necessary because Corliss had advised me accurately and well. We are beyond satisfied with Corliss' professional expertise. I would most highly recommend her as a realtor of integrity in every area of her field. I would be glad to speak with you if you have further questions about this outstanding REALTOR®.
- Ann Woods
Please know that both the Martin and the Brand Families are very grateful for all of the help that Mrs. Birks provided. She was very patient and understanding with us while we navigated the process of selecting a property. I know that there had to be several challenging moments due to us combining households. I personally would recommend Mrs. Birks to all of my family and friends if they needed to sell or purchase a property. In my book . . . .. she is a very sweet lady.

Corliss, How I appreciate you! Thanks so much for all your help, your hard work and consistent effort to bring to fruition what you started with the sale of this property.

My husband and I were so pleased when we started working with Corliss. She is professional, caring, helpful and always there! We knew that the homes we saw were looked at by her first and this helped us not to see something she knew was not going to be a good fit. We always felt she had our best interest at heart. We would recommend her highly and use her services again if we need to.

We are extremely satisfied with the way Corliss Birks handled the sale of our house. She went above and beyond what would be expected by spending the day in the county clerks office trying to find paperwork to answer questions that came up regarding it. If we had it to do all over, we would choose Corliss Birks as our REALTOR®.
