In addition to accumulating vast experience with retail and restaurant leasing and sales, Tom has recently added retail development to his areas of expertise, having developed a number of new shopping centers. He also has passed along the value of his well-honed industry knowledge by training some of the top retail brokers in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex.
