HOUSTON, Jan. 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- NAI Huff Partners, Fort Worth's largest commercial real estate firm, has merged with the central region of Houston-based Transwestern, one of the largest privately-held commercial real estate services and investment firms in the U.S. This merger expands Transwestern's operations into the Ft. Worth market through the addition of more than 30 team members from the NAI Huff Partners team. Transwestern's Ft. Worth office will offer clients experienced local leadership, coupled with regional and national capabilities and resources. With the addition of the NAI Huff Partners team members, Transwestern will represent one of the largest full service real estate firms in the DFW marketplace, with 90 brokers and in excess of 39 million square feet of leasing and/or management business.
"We want to capitalize on NAI Huff Partners' outstanding record and history in the Ft. Worth area, as well as the valuable relationships they have built since its founding in 1986," said Jack Eimer, president of Transwestern's central region, which covers North Texas and Oklahoma. "It is our goal to introduce NAI Huff Partners' clients to Transwestern's regional and national capabilities, yet retain continuity and the expertise of the firm's local presence. All of us at Transwestern embrace this exciting expansion into Ft. Worth, which will add to the growth and success we have achieved in other markets across the country."
The NAI Huff Partners and Transwestern announcement marks the second major merger for Transwestern's central region in recent years. In late 2004, the firm merged with Dallas-based NAI/Stoneleigh.
