The Texas commercial real estate community is unique in myriad ways, but one of its gems is The Real Estate Council (TREC). Founded in 1990 by a group of commercial real estate heavy hitters who wanted an organization that would focus on local issues, TREC highlights leadership development, public policy and community investment. The organization has now grown
to include 2,000 members and 600 member companies, which helps the organization wield strong influence across North Texas.
“Our mission is to cultivate relationships in the commercial real estate
industry, to catalyze community investment, influence policy, propel careers and develop the leaders of tomorrow,” says TREC President and CEO Linda McMahon. “We believe relationships are the lifeblood of career success, community investment and civic responsibility.”
Members, she adds, come from every facet of the industry and are developers, builders, brokers, attorneys, architects, investment bankers, accountants, finance professionals, title professionals and more. They’re personally engaged in issues that are important to the community.
“Our programs are created for maximum engagement for our members,”
Those range from Young Guns, which helps young professionals connect with senior CRE pros to learn about the industry and their careers, to The Deal, an industry expert-taught program in which members can learn about all aspects of a real estate transaction. Click to read more at www.rednews.com.
