For Halberdier, Opportunity In The Woodlands Is On The Edge

Trey Halberdier believes opportunity isn’t inside the box, or outside the box, but on the edges of the box. That's where growth happens, especially when that edge surrounds The Woodlands. Don’t miss your chance to hear Trey share his expertise at Bisnow’s Future Of The Woodlands event.


If you visualize The Woodlands as a box, Trey’s Halberdier Real Estate is making moves at every corner. Under Trey’s guidance, Halberdier has crafted a strategy to deploy capital on unrestricted sites not zoned by The Woodlands.

The biggest part of that strategy is in the southeast corner, across from Exxon, at The Grand Crossings At Hardy North. The asset is 5 acres off Hardy frontage just 200 yards from I-45 in what’s become known as “the golden triangle” area between I-45, Hardy and The Grand Parkway. The site is currently undergoing an ambitious recapitalization, adding 288k SF of Class-A office space. Halberdier’s also planning 60 acres for mixed use at Hardy and Grand Parkway.


Further west, the Toll Brothers community NorthGrove encompasses about 600 acres and will be a community of just under 900 homes at final completion. Trey is working on a 30-acre mixed use retail and medical development to serve the area. Trey’s had major interest from specialty grocery stores, charter schools, and professional retail looking to open up on Toll Brothers' doorstep.

To the north, there’s “The Park At Fish Creek," a 30k SF medical/retail development near the new Johnson Development, Woodforest, which currently has almost no retail space serving it. Located between The Woodlands and Lake Conroe, the 3,000-acre community has parks, trails, pools and a multitude of opportunities to complement the 5,500 new single family homes it plans to have. The community also features a 27 hole country club, but that seems par for the course in The Woodlands. 


Company brand and culture is a crucial factor for Trey. As an avid reader of Jim Collins, author of Great by Choice, Trey fanatically measures his team by four important metrics; resilient endurance, community connectedness, distinctive impact and exceptional performance.

Trey has grown the business he started in 2013 to 12 team members and five interns, quickly acquiring over $50M in land holdings at that will be worth about $250M upon development.

As a former soccer player at “THE” Ohio State University, when Trey isn’t working he enjoys playing soccer, golf and coaching Texas Rush, The Woodlands soccer team. He also just returned from Honduras with his Quest friends from The Woodlands United Methodist Church. Spending time with his wife and four kids (pictured above), ages 2-10, is the highlight of his day. With three daughters, three weddings and four college degrees, Trey is already planning for future expenses. He may be able to hedge his bets with his finances and real estate, but nothing will prepare him for having four teenagers in the house.
