Bob Gibbons | CEO Money Episode 142

After 20 years representing landlords, Bob Gibbons started REATA Commercial Realty, Inc. in 2004 to exclusively advise companies and non-profits on their real estate decisions to lease or purchase office and warehouse properties.

Bob started his commercial real estate career while still in college and not quite 21 years old. For the first 20 years, he worked for owners of commercial buildings as a property manager, construction manager and leasing agent. As an asset manager, he signed leases totaling over 6 million square feet with a value of half a billion dollars in buildings from coast to coast. His clients included pension funds, insurance companies and private equity investors.

It is that experience which uniquely qualifies him to represent the companies and non-profits that occupy those buildings and not just when searching for space for them, but also throughout the lease term when they need advice and counsel and someone in their corner.

Since starting his career in early 1984, Bob has been involved in all aspects of the commercial real estate business and held positions such as property manager, leasing agent, broker, construction manager, development project manager and asset manager.
He is a licensed Texas real estate broker, member of numerous trade associations and holds a BBA in Finance from UT Arlington and an MBA from the University of Dallas.

Bob has been married to Jan since 1986 and she now works with him at REATA. They have two grown kids who are successfully navigating the business world on their own. Bob enjoys water sports, mountain biking, and hiking, but would rather snow ski than anything else.
