Coldwell Banker Commercial Alliance opens Fort Worth office

Coldwell Banker Commercial Alliance DFW cut the ribbon in April on a new office in Fort Worth.

The new office is located on the third floor of University Centre I at 1300 S. University Drive. Joining Bryant in the rollout is Casey Tounget, associate, and Lindsay Davoudian, administrative assistant.

The full-service brokerage’s headquarters will remain in Arlington, but managing principal Gary Walker said the firm has considered Fort Worth and Dallas for additional offices.

“With Theron’s experience and success in Fort Worth, it only made sense to open in that market first,” said Paul VanDevender, executive vice president of operations for CBCA’s corporate office in New York.

“We hope to ramp up to add quality agents in the Fort Worth office. At the same time, we will be focused on building a Dallas operation as well,” VanDevender said.

Representing the seller was Clint Montgomery of Sperry Van Ness/Visions Commercial.

“With its location on Wilshire Boulevard and its proximity to Super Wal-Mart, this property is extremely attractive for both tenants and investors,” Montgomery said in a news release.

The 17,860-square-foot building was purchased through a real estate syndication set up by Fithian and Wilson. Similar to “crowd-funding,” real estate syndication allows investors to pool their money and purchase real estate, with each investor owning a percentage of shares.

“Because the Texas market is booming, it’s becoming more of a challenge for investors to individually find quality investments,” Fithian said.

“As a result, syndication investing is becoming popular because it enables an investor to participate in larger and higher-quality investments that they wouldn’t be able to participate in on their own.”

Fithian and Wilson are currently working on another syndication investment opportunity for a retail center in Forney.
