Dallas, TX - Nathan R. Durham and Travis C. Ewert have joined PM Realty Group (PMRG), a nationwide, full-service, commercial real estate firm, as leasing executives in the company's Dallas office. These new positions follow PMRG being awarded more than 1.5 million square feet of leasing assignments over the past six months.
Durham, the new senior vice president of leasing, joins PMRG after working for seven years at Harwood International, a Dallas-based real estate development and investment firm. As director of leasing at Harwood, Durham achieved some of the highest rental rates in Dallas, increasing the occupancy rate to 100 percent at four Class AA developments in uptown Dallas. Recently, Durham pre-leased Saint Ann Court, a new Class AA Uptown development, to 44 percent. Signed tenants included Amegy Bank, Erasmus Advisors, Aldus Equity and McGuire, Craddock & Strother.
"My primary focus will be leading an energetic and passionate leasing team to fully leverage our relationships with the important brokerage community in Dallas," Durham said. "Providing a high level of service is fundamental to adding value and increasing occupancy for property owners. I selected PM Realty Group because their core business is representing an outstanding client base of building owners across the country and they have an outstanding Dallas team in place."
Travis C. Ewert, a new leasing manager for PMRG, most recently served as a project manager and IT advisor for KPMG International.
"I have watched my father, Carl Ewert, become a leader in the Dallas office market and understand that relationships are built on performance," said Ewert, "I am excited to be joining the PM team on the heels of adding more than 1.5 million square feet to their Dallas portfolio, 90 percent of which is Class A office space."
According to Doug Little, PMRG's executive vice president, managing director - central division, "The strong growth of our leasing portfolio in Dallas is due to the strength of our leasing team and parallels the growth we are seeing in every area of our business. To continue to provide the level of service our clients expect, we needed to add professionals who have the commitment to performance that differentiates PM in the market. I expect Nathan and Travis to be key players in helping us sustain and increase our growth rate."
