Falcon Realty Advisors, a Dallas-based commercial real estate company specializing exclusively in representation of retail, restaurant, and entertainment tenants for real estate strategy, construction and development, has expanded into Central Texas with the opening of an office in Austin. The opening of the national firm’s Austin office is a result of the tremendous growth of Falcon’s clients in Central Texas over the past several years.
The Austin office will serve as an extension of Falcon’s Dallas headquarters by continuing operations within its highly established tenant representation services and the development of its build-to-suit platform. The Austin branch will also be actively recruiting brokers and new team members.
Travis Heinrichs, who joined Falcon in 2013 and most recently served as Director of Investments, will be heading the new branch as director. Heinrichs, in addition to leading a growing office, will focus his expertise on site selection, deal underwriting and project development in the greater Austin and San Antonio areas.
“By solidifying a local presence in Austin, Falcon will be better positioned to execute on the substantial opportunities in the area and further strengthen our ties to the community,” says Tim Hughes, president and CEO of Falcon Realty Advisors. “There’s both an art and a science of tenant representation—we have a deep understanding of both as it’s the only thing we do. Travis’ comprehensive understanding of the evolving market makes him perfectly suited to lead our continuous expansion among local and national markets."
The firm’s impressive portfolio consists of Austin-headquartered Whole Foods and other top retailers throughout the state including Petco, Mattress Firm, Robbins Brothers and iPic Theaters. Falcon also represents flourishing emerging restaurant brands, such as Thirsty Lion Gastropub & Grill, Ted’s Montana Grill, Modern Market, Bulla Gastrobar, Velvet Taco, Whiskey Cake, Pisco y Nazca, and 54th Street Grill.
