About Us


Since the 1930’s, members of our family have owned and operated retail real estate throughout Texas. Each generation has built upon the experiences of the prior ones. This long history of building relationships and knowledge of the commercial real estate industry is one reason why you can trust CenterPoint as a contributing partner to your success. Here are a few others:

  • Relationship oriented. We are focused on solutions, not sales. When we partner with our clients, we all benefit.
