The J. Beard Real Estate Company Announces Alignment with SVN

After 18 years, The Woodlands-based commercial real estate firm springboards its resources by joining forces with SVN, a global leader in commercial real estate.

The Woodlands, Texas (October 7, 2021) Jeff Beard, CCIM, president and founder of The J. Beard Real Estate Company, LP, today announced the firm’s alliance with SVN International Corp., a global leader in the commercial real estate industry. The company will be known as SVN | J. Beard Real Estate – Greater Houston.

Headquartered in The Woodlands, The J. Beard Real Estate Company was established in 2003 and is now one of the top commercial real estate brokerage companies and an industry leader in the Greater Houston area. The firm’s services encompass leasing, brokerage, site acquisition, property management, development, consulting, and landlord/tenant representation services.

“On the heels of our 18th anniversary, the timing for this strategic alignment couldn’t be more ideal,” said Jeff Beard, Managing Director of SVN | J. Beard Real Estate – Greater Houston. “Our team is stronger than ever. We have grown over the years despite challenges like the ’08 financial crisis, dramatic swings from the local economy’s energy sector, natural disasters, and most recently the global pandemic. Each and every time, our team pulled together and has emerged bigger and better.

“As a Woodlands-based company, we now have greater opportunities to expand our reach and resources which will only help us with our current Woodlands business. We’ve done very well in The Woodlands and we remain 100% committed to our clients, owners, and ongoing business in this area.  Over the years, we have demonstrated the ability to successfully grow our commercial real estate business in other geographic places, particularly in Greater Houston so this is nothing different for us. The Woodlands is where I substantiated my career in commercial real estate and raised my family. As a business owner, I remain committed to this hometown and will continue to support the community, just as always.”

Beard continued, “It is important to note that the ownership and the client-centered culture of our firm haven’t changed. We will continue to have the same boutique focus on quality relationships with the same core values that our team embraces. This exciting alignment with SVN International will enhance our access to CRE resources, create new business growth options, and professional growth for our associates, all of which will help provide more ways to better serve our clients.

“Bottom line is we have the same ownership, the same market expertise delivered by the same entrepreneurial, boutique company, but now with a bigger, broader national and international reach.”

Kevin Maggiacomo, President & CEO of SVN, added, “As the SVN brand EXPANDS across the globe, we are partnering with market leaders who share our vision of a collaborative, open and transparent approach to commercial real estate. SVN | J. Beard Real Estate has long been an impactful leader in Greater Houston and is yet another strong addition to the organization. We look forward to rapidly growing the SVN presence and culture in Houston, TX.”
