“My professional growth and success has been due to the leadership and encouragement of Herb Weitzman,” Mills said in a news release.

The Weitzman Group, offering commercial real estate brokerage services, currently leases 44 million square feet of retail and commercial space throughout Texas. The firm offers retail project representation, retail tenant representation, investment property brokerage, office and industrial property brokerage and related services.


Cencor offers statewide property management, asset management and development operations. Cencor currently manages a retail property portfolio of more than 22 million square feet.
