Founded in 2004, Baker Katz embraces an approach to tenant representation that leverages intimate knowledge of the Houston market and prioritizes clear and direct communication through a retail brokerage team that serves more as advisors and less as sales representatives. In the real estate business, information is currency and relationships are the building blocks of professional success. This consultative approach adds enormous value to our client relationships. In addition to tenant representation, we have built a thriving development business, which was launched in 2006. Development is approached from a true “value creation” perspective, identifying opportunities to leverage our local knowledge. Over the course of the last decade, we have carved out a defining niche in the greater Houston area and, today, the Baker Katz team provides premier retail tenant representation to some of the industry’s top national chains.
We are dedicated to creating value for our clients and professional partners. For retailers, that means achieving a deep understanding of our client’s goals and how their businesses work as an essential prerequisite for helping them to identify trade areas and sites that will best position them for success. For lenders, investors and professional partners, that means deploying thorough market analysis and leveraging industry relationships to ensure each investment—whether a renovation or a ground-up project—is a sound, long-term investment.
