Experience Leads Everything We Do
My teams have been buying, developing and managing hard assets, real estate, oil and gas production, new ventures, manufacturing, service businesses and cash-flows for over 4 decades. In Real Estate, we mainly focus on Texas and the surrounding states in the commercial sector. In Oil & Gas, we focus on a niche of the market with partnerships that hold assets around the US. In venture, we focus on tech and medical devices. We let our experience guide us in every decision we make.
