Meet Houston’s 2018 Heavy Hitters of commercial real estate.
The Houston Business Journal annually recognizes the city’s top commercial real estate brokers based on their gross dollar volume of deals completed the previous year.
The Heavy Hitters represent six sectors — office tenant, office landlord, industrial, retail, land and investment — and are listed below alphabetically. Find out where the Heavy Hitters rank in each sector at a reception on May 10 at 5:30 p.m. at the Wynden on Post Oak. Event details are available here.
A representative from each brokerage signed off on brokers’ 2017 gross dollar volume of deals. Transactions that were completed as part of a team were divided in proportion to the nominee’s share of the commission. To be eligible, a broker must be based in Houston, but his/her deals did not have to be. Brokers are listed under the sector that represents the majority of their 2017 deals.
This year, CBRE had the most Heavy Hitters with 18 brokers, followed by Cushman & Wakefield of Texas with 11 and Avison Young with 10.
The Heavy Hitters will also be featured in the May 11 weekly edition of HBJ. To see the honorees from last year, click here.
