Happy 40th Cushman & Wakefield Dallas
How has the commercial real estate brokerage business changed in 40 years? Cushman & Wakefield of Texas vice chairman Bob Edge will tell you four decades ago, there were no computers, no research at your fingertips, and definitely no smart phones. Heck, there were very few DFW suburban markets to even consider. All this waxing historic was part of the 40th anniversary celebration of the Dallas Cushman & Wakefield office at Rosewood Court on Thursday. When he started the office in ’74, the staff was in the First National Bank Building.
Celebrating with a '70s theme were Cushman & Wakefield associate Brian Wilson and exec admin assistant Kathy Frederick. Bob handled some of the region’s biggest transactions including the ’79 HQ relo for American Airlines and the ’88 office consolidation for Mobil Oil. Bob is also the '87 Stemmons Service Award winner and a member of the Dallas Real Estate Hall of Fame. Since the start of the Dallas office, it has grown from just a handful of brokers to more than 250 employees in 2014. The office has also added service lines throughout the years to now include all property types.
