OUR TEAM

Jeffrey Yarbrough

CEO

From his days as a roving restaurateur to his current work leading PR clients to extensive accolades and booming business, Jeffrey Yarbrough has achieved unequivocal success in all aspects of the hospitality industry. How does he do it? An entrepreneur and expert networker by nature, Yarbrough shares with his clients the real life experience he gained from running his own businesses.

Don’t just take our word for it. Yarbrough’s knowledge of public relations tactics, media relations and the hospitality industry has warranted bigInk PR’s recognition as one of Dallas Business Journal’s Top 25 public relations companies in Dallas/Fort Worth.

His first entertainment accomplishment (Concept Nouveau, Inc.) was Dallas’ original four-clubs-in-one complex, including Art Bar, Blind Lemon, Club Clearview and Red. Its diverse club settings, friendly atmosphere and service, and creative marketing campaigns made the complex a role model for nightclub establishments throughout the nation.

Jeffrey’s innovative entrepreneurial spirit led him to launch Liberty Noodles in 1998, the first pan-Asian noodle house in Texas. Liberty Noodles opened on Lower Greenville in Dallas, and the whimsically chic restaurant received rave reviews. As if that isn’t enough, Yarbrough also co-wrote the nationally distributed “Complete Idiot’s Guide to Asian Cooking” with Liberty Noodles Founding Chef Annie Wong.

In 2004, Jeffrey took his knowledge of the hospitality industry – and all the booms that come with it — and opened bigInk, using his experience to help other restaurateurs and business owners avoid painful mistakes and reach sweeping success.

Jeffrey Yarbrough leads by example, not only in business, but in his ability to balance work with a busy family life as a husband and the father of triplets.

Aaron Evans

President of Business Brokerage

As a former business owner, Aaron understands the concerns and challenges that buyers and sellers face. As the team’s business broker, he is mindful of what is most important to both sides of a successful deal.

Aaron has been in the hospitality business for over 23 years in various capacities such as vice president of sales and marketing, director of operations, manager and owner. In 2012, he and his wife made a decision to buy a failing business in Northern California and move his family there. During their tenure, sales increased over 400%, they won various awards for cuisine and they created a successful catering business from scratch. In late 2018, they sold the businesses and returned home to Texas. Both businesses continue to be successful today.

Aaron holds a Masters Degree in Applied Criminology from Texas A&M – Commerce and he is a licensed real estate agent in the State of Texas. He is also a member of the International Business Brokers Association (IBBA), Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A Source), National Association of Realtors (NAR) and the Texas Association of Realtors (TAR).

Kelly Horton

Transaction Coordinator

Kelly has been in the real estate industry since 1990 and is an active Texas Real Estate Broker. She has served as the President of the Northeast Tarrant County Board of Realtors, as well as Woman of the Year for the Women’s Council of Realtors. Additionally, she served on the MLS committee, Public Relations Committee, and the Ethics and Grievance committee, as well as a member of the Board of Directors on the Board of Realtors.

Previously working as an administrative assistant to the President of a large local financial planning organization, Kelly honed her organizational skills and attention to detail with running day to day operations of the officers as well as being a key member in the planning of the international conventions, coordinating travel of the 1200 members and their families as well as their associated hotels, events, meetings, speeches, and dinners. The desire to start a family and have flexibility to spend afternoons with her children brought Kelly into the real estate field. She started off working in traditional sales, eventually becoming skilled at helping those facing foreclosure and negotiating with the banks through short sales…a very detailed, paperwork intensive process. Her success at negotiating short sales made Kelly the “go to” for other agents who could not navigate those waters themselves. 

These talents, her determination and her knowledge of real estate allow Kelly to facilitate our transactions from start to finish. In addition to working with our staff to produce and finalize paperwork and assisting with technical issues, Kelly works with the title companies, lenders, and our clients, ensuring all the T’s are crossed and the I’s are dotted, assisting clients with meeting their deadlines, and ensuring a smooth transaction from start to finish.
