HALBERDIER Real Estate and The Patriots- Winning Leadership

HALBERDIER Real Estate, Leadership, and Winning Ways learned in Sports The Patriots’ Bill Belichick Inspires His Team By Calling Them This Published on February 3, 2017 Leadership Professor, Executive Strategist, and Christian Pastor And other leadership lessons from Super Bowl LI When the New England Patriots and the Atlanta Falcons face off in Super Bowl LI on Sunday, we will be witnessing far more than just the football essentials of passing, catching, running, kicking, blocking, and tackling. Whether fans recognize it or not, the championship game will put some of the finest in leadership and organizational culture on display and to the test, led by two exceptional coaches whose examples can teach a lot to leaders everywhere. Dan Quinn, head coach of the Falcons, and Bill Belichick, head coach and de facto general manager of the Patriots, are both known for their distinctive approaches to leadership on the sidelines and, perhaps more importantly, off the field. For leaders wanting insights into how to improve their organizations, this year’s Super Bowl coaches offer three powerful lessons. Create a sense of ownership A story often told about Belichick is that he refers to every member of the Patriots organization as a “shareholder.” Not the players alone, but every member, from front office to coaching staff. And being a shareholder, Belichick has said, translates into having “an opportunity to show positive leadership or negative leadership.” In other words, values don’t belong to the organization; they are the property of each individual and are held collectively. The business corollary here is “organizational identification”—meaning how readily people identify with their organizations. As research shows, when organizational identification...

2016 Year End HALBERDIER CRE Insights

Friends: Another year…. another period of growth, learning, and thriving.   We trust you learned as much as we did in the year of 2016.  As one of our brilliant mentors suggests, we must have a deliberate Product, People, Market and Financial Plan. Our HALBERDIER Holdings brand, culture and pipeline looks forward to 2017 – for many reasons, but one mainly being the Market Plan.  I was fortunate to serve as panel moderator at the most recent BISNOW State of Oil and Gas Summit – specifically the Investment & Development Panel.  We participated in the GOOD NEWS of what Houston and Texas has coming to us in the decade ahead.  Enjoy the keynote speaker John Goff’s notes in link here – https://www.bisnow.com/houston/news/economy/one-on-one-with-john-goff-69009 Mr. Goff and other industry leaders are bullish on Texas, the Trump factor, Oil and Gas, our sprawling Medical Center (and suburban flock of same), overall net migration and job growth to the area.  As a contrarian investor and developer, we feel the time is right and the time is now!  Yes, interest rates are on the rise, and real estate prices are not getting cheaper for Houstonians.  If you hedge inflation, it might be wise to own tangible assets like real estate. Empirical creativity and fanatical discipline will win the day- or year ahead, for the opportunistic funds, investors and developers.  We continue to see medical, retail and education as the industry leaders, with industrial, multifamily and office in that order of overall health.  HALBERDIER remains steadfast on MIXED USE projects – to allow the market to guide us into highest and best uses.  “Good entry prices on...

HALBERDIER Holdings’ Enterprise Expansion

HALBERDIER Holdings has been priming up for major success past few years.   Despite an oil and gas downturn in Houston TX, The H Real Estate is thinking and acting globally. Thanks to a robust medical and retail sector in commercial real estate propping up user demand, HALBERDIER’s prime land positions all around The Woodlands TX are hedged for about any market situation.  “The beauty of having exceptional land positions in a mixed use plan, allows our firm to pivot and be fluid as the market allows us to be“, says CEO Trey Halberdier. “We are especially focused on the retail, medical and research sectors.”  HALBERDIER has always been keen on market intelligence as it relates to emerging trends, macro economics, local supply and demand factors, contrarian investing and operating with empirical creativity when it comes to investing millions in any one property.   When other CRE enterprises stood on the sidelines, The H team was engaged in full contact blocking and tackling. The H game plan has now entered the front lines of rapid expansion of its portfolio footprint, it’s team, and venture capital execution while taking the assets vertical in every sense.   “In a time when lenders and other capital partners seem skittish, we have been fortunate to align with some of the top family offices and VC partners to execute our positions”, Halberdier notes.  “We are vigilant and diligent in our underwriting, sourcing and user procurement- and overall optimistic of what the Houston market is telling us despite the O&G headlines- we look at our pipeline in terms of 2 to 10 year horizons”. The commercial real estate development business takes some important variables into account-...

Chinks Begin to Appear in The Woodlands Armor

For The Woodlands, anything but rapid growth feels like a tough market. Although growth in the submarket is tapping the brakes, experts at Bisnow’s fifth annual Future of The Woodlands event yesterday say it shows no signs of stopping.     The Woodlands Area Economic Partnership CEO Gil Staley described major employment and business expansion in The Woodlands as “very lonely.” Other than ExxonMobil job growth, only 278 jobs have been created in 2016 so far. Class-A office vacancy is at 10%. Distance hasn’t separated The Woodlands from feeling the pains of Houston. Just like every other submarket, sublease space is spiking. During the downturn, Halberdier Real Estate founder Trey Halberdier is taking a note out of acclaimed entrepreneur Seth Godin’s book. With the state of The Woodlands market, there’s not much opportunity in what he refers to as the “box” of The Woodlands. That’s why Halberdier Real Estate is investing in the edges around The Woodlands. Halberdier is positioning itself to be on the acquisition side of investment sales in the area. Trey says now it’s just a question of whether his top-notch team can execute to the best of its abilities. To that end, Halberdier Real Estate has brought on five new interns to help seize every opportunity. Pictured: nearly 400 professionals packed Three Hughes Landing yesterday. Coventry Development Corp EVP Keith Simon (above, fourth from left) pointed to the importance of roads to the continued development of the area. The Grand Parkway has been a significant boon for development in the area, but more work needs to be done. One major project Keith pointed to was the direct connectors at...

For Halberdier, Opportunity in The Woodlands is on the Edge

Trey Halberdier believes opportunity isn’t inside the box, or outside the box, but on the edges of the box. That’s where growth happens, especially when that edge surrounds The Woodlands. Don’t miss your chance to hear Trey share his expertise at Bisnow’s Future of The Woodlands event. If you visualize The Woodlands as a box, Trey’s Halberdier Real Estate is making moves at every corner. Under Trey’s guidance, Halberdier has crafted a strategy to deploy capital on unrestricted sites not zoned by The Woodlands. The biggest part of that strategy is in the southeast corner, across from Exxon, at The Grand Crossings At Hardy North. The asset is 5 acres off Hardy frontage just 200 yards from I-45 in what’s become known as “the golden triangle” area between I-45, Hardy and The Grand Parkway. The site is currently undergoing an ambitious recapitalization, adding 288k SF of Class-A office space. Halberdier’s also planning 60 acres for mixed used at Hardy and Grand Parkway. Further west, the Toll Brothers community NorthGrove encompasses about 600 acres and will be a community of just under 900 homes at final completion. trey is working on a 30-acre mixed use retail and medical development to serve the area. Trey’s had major interest from specialty grocery stores, charter schools, and professional retail looking to open up on Toll Brothers’ doorstep. To the north, there’s “The Park at Fish Creek,” a 30k SF medical/retail development near the new Johnson Development, Woodforest, which currently has almost no retail space serving it. Located between The Woodlands and Lake conroe, the 3,000-acre community has parks, trails, pools and a multitude of opportunities to complement the 5,500 new single family homes it plans to have. the community also features...

HALBERDIER Unshakable Exxon Area Vertical Development Plans

HALBERDIER Holdings Exxon Area Land – Big Vertical Office Plans with Houston Family Office in Glut Market THE WOODLANDS, Texas, Jan. 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — In December 2015, Trey Halberdier’s team at HALBERDIER Real Estate executed yet again, on another land trade across I-45 from Exxon – which will ultimately develop 2 Class A office buildings and parking garage – ENERGY Crossing North http://www.theHrealestate.com/Energy. This time, HALBERDIER was not purchasing prime land; they were recapitalizing and partnering with a well respected, private philanthropic family office in downtown Houston. HALBERDIER Holdings has quickly garnered significant traction aroundThe Woodlands, ExxonMobil and the Grand Parkway terrain over the past few years (look for the scarlet and grey “H” adorned crested shield as a sign of strength and resilience).  The new partnership’s playbook sets up nicely by design – strong liquidity, creatively disciplined, opportunistic and high level execution in the CRE office market. The plan for HALBERDIER’s new venture calls for 288,000 SF of office on 5 acres, in a now daunting office market.  As Newton said, every action has an equal and opposite reaction.  HALBERDIER’s group and investors are betting on Exxon and The Grand Parkway by going long.  In a remarkable contrarian way, they doubled down on the size and scope of the project – both the land and square footage of buildings. The HALBERDIER team sees leveling construction pricing and a flight to quality Exxon area prime locations as a competitive advantage. Trey Halberdier notes, “We went through a dip in 2008 with the subprime meltdown, and The Woodlands area remained strong, this is no different, except we now have the 3rd loop...

HALBERDIER Holdings Gamble – Doubles Down around The Woodlands, TX Real Estate Market

HALBERDIER Holdings Gamble – Doubles Down around The Woodlands, TX Real Estate Market The Woodlands TX – 12.26.15 Trey Halberdier, President of HALBERDIER Real Estate LLC and HALBERDIER Holdings LLC, has a simple enduring vision around the thriving North Houston suburb of 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 in a solid market”. The story of HALBERDIER is one of purpose, resilience, courage and sacrifice. Trey Halberdier launched The H Real Estate/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, Texas area has it all–robust industry, a thriving community, and sterling live, work, play and pray accommodations. Currently, a feverish uncertainty permeates the Houston lifeblood in the Energy sectors – namely the Oil and Gas industry with oil plummeting below the $40/barrel mark. Commercial real estate ultimately feels the brunt of corporate O&G layoffs and overall contraction. Yet, Houston now has a more diversified workforce and industry. The Woodlands area is prepared with estimated industry to be 30% Energy, 20% Medical, 20% Educational and remainder banking & professional services.  HALBERDIER Holdings thrives in the “mixed use” real estate envelope-proving up why Trey Halberdier’s team is specifically targeting medical, educational, and retail type users. One of HALBERDIER’s most notable strengths, is finding great deals and capitalizing...

HALBERDIER Holdings and The H Real Estate (www.theHrealestate.com), and their respective private equity and capital sources have soared to a $30+Million land asset valuation in less than 2 years.  The H vertical development pipeline calls for over $200 Million of mixed use projects in next 3 years.  “We are extremely bullish on every single North Houston sub market we deploy resources and capital, and every one of our projects has a special story – as to why our assets are exceptional, unique, with major upside,” says Chief Believer Trey Halberdier.  “We underwrite our acquisitions to make money on the buy, on day 1 – the vertical development is then an added bonus.” As for the newest asset to The Halberdier Companies’ portfolio, Conroe SKY Crossings, the same story holds true.  With thousands of new roof tops, the new 248-acre Deison Technology Park, the City of Conroe Business parks, and expanded Lone Star Conroe Airport runway and US Customs checkpoint, the Conroe SKY project is primed for takeoff.  The flight plan calls for sunny blue skies in the form of significant retail, pad sites, casual dining, hotel, office, lifestyle and entertainment venue uses.
