THE WOODLANDS, Texas, Dec. 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Trey Halberdier, President of HALBERDIER Real Estate/HALBERDIER Holdings, has a simple enduring vision around the thriving North Houston suburb, The Woodlands, TX. "We create exceptional real estate opportunities," says Halberdier. "It all starts with unshakable vision, faith and core values – alongside great team members, intricate processes and brilliant execution."

The HALBERDIER story is one of purpose, resilience, and courage. Trey Halberdier launched The HALBERDIER Companies brand www.theHrealestate.com in 2013, after a successful 12 years in brokerage & investment CRE with Houston's top firms, and one he co-founded in 2008. By design, HALBERDIER laid a strong foundation in arguably one of the most dynamic real estate markets in the country. The Woodlands area has it all – robust industry, a thriving community, and sterling live, work, play and pray lifestyle.

Currently, a feverish uncertainty permeates the Houston lifeblood – namely the Oil and Gas industry with oil plummeting below the $40/barrel mark. CRE ultimately feels the brunt of O&G layoffs and contraction. Yet, Houston now has a more diversified workforce and industry. The Woodlands is prepared with 30% Energy, 20% Medical, 20% Educational and remainder banking & professional services.  HALBERDIER thrives in the "mixed use" CRE envelope – proving why The H is targeting medical, educational, and retail type users. 

The H finds great deals and capitalizes on market dynamics, good or bad. Contrarian investing is on the horizon, market corrections are here, and pricing is leveling out while interest rates remain low. These conditions feed The H vision with plans for 1/2 a billion in CRE projects, within a 15 mile radius of The Woodlands.  Halberdier notes, "Mixed-use assets are most fascinating, we have the ability to shift quickly with the market, and meet overlooked CRE needs. We're bullish on medical, retail, and educational uses.  Office, flex industrial and multi-family are sluggish, so we pivot and execute."

Market intelligence is the compass for developers. The H land holdings are strategic and precise, to insure against uncertainty and chaos. While capital markets are tightening belts and sensitive debt coverage ratios ensue, HALBERDIER is seeking more cash, family offices and debt sources. The emerging firm is growing its operations – scaling with cautious and creative optimism.

The future for commercial real estate seems uncertain, but The H gravitas is a beacon of opportunity and movement, in a pragmatic and paralyzed Houston market.
