Morris Duree


Morris grew up in Arlington, where he lived until his junior year of high school. He then moved to Granbury, where his family had built a lake house in 1972 and settled down. Morris is a proud father of five children, including Devon, who has blessed Morris with his only grandson and graduated from Tarleton State University. Morris’s daughter, Mandy, has given him two lovely granddaughters with her husband. In 2010, Morris and his wife decided to expand their family and turned to invitro fertilization. The procedure was successful, and in September 2012, they welcomed triplets – two boys and a girl – into their lives. Morris’s family has brought him immense joy and fulfillment, and he looks forward to continuing to explore the world with his loved ones by his side.

Morris’s sales career began when he landed his first job working for the largest fabrication company in the late 70s. He later started a successful custom sign manufacturing business in Granbury, Texas, producing lighted signs for many local businesses, including Dave’s Jewelry and First Financial Bank. Morris’s passion for scuba diving led him to start an outdoor adventures store, where he became a Master Instructor for the scuba world, even starting the college scuba program course at Tarleton University as an adjunct professor. After selling his scuba shop, Morris bought into a billboard company, which he eventually was sold to a major billboard corporation. He then sold his sign company shortly after that and went on to work for Lamar Advertising, where he excelled as the company’s number one salesperson for 15 years. In 2019, Morris got his real estate license, starting Granbury Realty, and developing Putteet Hill, a premier development in Hood County. Morris then decided to partner with Eric and Pamela to create VYBE. Morris’s contributions to his community were recognized when he was named the Outstanding Citizen of the Year by the Peers of Granbury Association of Realtors.

Morris has a passion for encouraging positivity and optimism. His life philosophy aligns with the famous Zig Ziglar quote, “You get everything out of life that you want if you help enough other people get what they want.” With this mindset, Morris strives to live his life with integrity and always puts others before himself. Throughout his career, Morris has been a dedicated salesman, and he believes that being a true salesperson means helping others solve their problems and meet their needs. He understands that when done with integrity and purpose, the job can be incredibly rewarding. Beyond work, Morris is deeply involved in his community, particularly through his active participation in the Optimist Club of Granbury and various other charitable endeavors. Throughout the years, he has helped raise over a million dollars in contributions for these causes.

Morris is an accomplished water skier, having competed in tournaments as early as age 16. He went on to join the Mastercraft professional team, where he served as a member for an impressive 28 years. Morris was a senior boat driver and pulled many pro events, earning a reputation as a skilled and trusted driver. Aside from being a huge family man, Morris enjoys just about anything outdoors. He is an avid scuba diver, snow skier, and hunter, with a deep appreciation for nature.

“Vybe was Eric’s brainchild. I have a tremendous amount of respect for Eric and his integrity, and I wanted to be a part of the culture that we’ve developed.”

With over 50 years of residency in Granbury, Morris is a true expert on the area. He has witnessed the town’s growth from a one-light town to a vibrant small metroplex.

“We bought our new home sight unseen! Eric was able to FaceTime time us through the whole home and neighborhood while we were at our home in Montana. The home we bought was a new construction spec home and we were not able to be there for the final walk-through. Because of Eric’s experience with new construction, we trusted him to meet with the builder and communicate the final touch-ups. When we walked into our home for the first time we were amazed that we were able to relocate from Montana to Texas to such a beautiful home with such ease!”
