Stephen A. White

President, Sentry Real Estate Advisors

As a real estate professional, Stephen White is an expert in the property tax process. However, the issue became personal for him in 2016 when he questioned his own high tax bill. Upon further investigation, he learned that an incorrect figure hidden in the details of a decade-old appraisal had been costing him and his neighbors money for years. Armed with the revelation, he successfully fought lower his taxes.

The experience motivated him to found Sentry Real Estate Advisors, a team of experts committed to ensuring that you only pay a fair amount, and nothing more.

Stephen is third generation resident of the Park Cities. After graduating from Highland Park High School, he attended the Lawrenceville School in New Jersey as a post-graduate before studying communications at The University of Texas in Austin.

Prior to his career in real estate, Stephen established and ran successful organic, farm to table restaurants, developed a premium yogurt brand, and consulted with several start-up food concepts. For 16 years he worked in the financial services industry as a sell side analyst for Wall Street firms - most recently for Stephens, Inc. where he focused on hedge funds and family offices.

Stephen has been a member of Highland Park United Methodist Church his entire life. Nearly 20 years ago, he helped to establish Carpenters for Christ at HPUMC. He served as a member of the Board of Directors for both Carpenters for Christ and the Dallas area Habitat for Humanity. He has been an active volunteer for Prison Entrepreneur Program, Cafe Momentum, and Bonton Farms. Stephen is married with three children, all whom attend or have graduated from Park Cities schools.
