The Houston Business Journal recognized 120 commercial real estate professionals from 23 brokerages as 2017 Heavy Hitters.

Each year, HBJ selects the city’s top commercial real estate brokers based on their gross dollar volume of deals completed the previous year. A representative from each brokerage firm signed off on brokers’ 2016 transactional dollar volume of deals. Transactions completed as part of a team were divided in proportion to the nominee’s share of the commission. To be eligible, a broker must be based in Houston, but the deals do not have to be in Houston. Brokers are listed under the sector that represents the majority of their 2016 deals.

Heavy Hitters represent six sectors: office tenant, office landlord, industrial, retail, land and investment. This year, JLL has the most Heavy Hitters with 21 brokers, followed by CBRE with 17 and Transwestern with 12. These Heavy Hitters represent the best and most productive professionals in Houston’s commercial real estate community.

Commercial Gateway and the Houston Association of REALTORS® along with our new partner Xceligent are proud to recognize our members as well as the other commercial real estate brokers who raise the bar of productivity and professionalism in our industry.
