We are proud to sponsor the Third Ward Real Estate Council as they kick off their inaugural Fall Luncheon to their “Do the Things that Matter!” build the block campaign. It has been our pleasure to support this organization. They are tackling affordability in both the commercial and residential space by providing options that don’t exist in the market. Their mission is to provide equitable opportunities in real estate through education, access to capital, and responsible development. During the luncheon Director, Brittany Hyman is set to share the background of the council, what its working on, and key milestones coming up that stakeholders can be a part of. Director Hyman will also be joined by City of Houston Councilmember Tiffany D. Thomas. They will be talking about the state of housing in Houston as well as policies and news that you should be aware of if you are investing in underserved communities. To add context to the conversation the Councilmember will be joined by Jason Hyman, Greg Benjamin, and Kevin Granderson. Jason Hyman, a licensed real estate broker and urban planner, is the owner of Realinc, Houston’s only black owned brokerage and planning firm. Hyman also serves as the Council’s VP of Business Development and is President of the Greater Third Ward Super Neighborhood. Greg Benjamin serves as the VP of Real Estate Development and an AIA certified architect. He has had the opportunity to build a variety of structures across Houston as well as mentor young architects and professionals on the effects of context in the built environment. Dr. Kevin Granderson is a partner within a construction firm and teaches young men trades that they can leverage in the workforce. Being an active investor and builder, Dr. Granderson has been able to work in all aspects of project management.
