Hines: The Man, The Company

At MIT’s Center for Real Estate’s 25th anniversary graduation weekend, Gerald D. Hines gave the keynote address. I would not normally place a video on The Tenant Advisor that is 51 minutes in length. However, as a commercial real estate professional in Houston Texas, there is no name that is more revered than that of Houston based, “Hines”. Gerald Hines is an industry icon worldwide, but in my hometown, no individual or organization has even come close to having the impact on our city’s real estate landscape.

I have never had the opportunity to meet Gerald Hines, but having done business with Hines over the years, I can say there is no organization is that is more first class from top to bottom. You never have any second thoughts about placing a client in a Hines Building. You know what your going to get, the highest quality property, superior property management and the transaction process even in a tough negotiation could not be more pleasant. In our city and I am sure many others, there is no building owner that commands more respect from the real estate community than Hines.
