Eric Painter feels blessed to have made his career over the last twenty years in various areas of real estate.
For ten years, he was in acquisitions and development for a real estate investment trust (REIT) in Fort Worth, where he conducted and managed analyses in acquisitions, underwriting and due diligence of potential and existing real estate portfolios of Class A office property for potential investment within markets in Texas and the U.S. He was simultaneously involved in the development and completion of high-rise office assets in the downtown Houston market. Over the next ten years, he was fortunate to serve as a vice president for a private investment company that explored opportunities within multiple sectors of real estate: office, retail, lifestyle developments and infrastructure projects. He subsequently became the director of one of the firm’s lifestyle developments: a 3,700 acre private partnership recreational ranch in Bosque County, Texas. Being involved in conceptual land planning, construction management oversight, sales and marketing along with the overall management of the ranch operations and personnel gave him a complete understanding of the true potential of a property.
Born and raised in Texas, Eric is proud to have grown up in Fort Worth and was lucky to marry his high school sweetheart. He is a graduate of Texas Christian University with a BBA in Marketing, a Graduate of the Ranch Management Program at TCU, and received a Graduate of Finance from Southern Methodist University.
His family lives in Weatherford and maintains roots in many counties in and around the North and West Texas regions. After watching his hometown area grow, mature, and flourish, Eric is excited to be with Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty to offer his professional experience through a reputable and innovative marketing platform. He understands the many opportunities that face a landowner or buyer in vibrant North Texas.
Eric has performed countless analyses and transactions of a variety of properties, offering a comprehensive perspective to serve his clients in various ways: as a buyer’s or seller’s agent, as a representative for farm and ranch property sourcing, as an agent for commercial representation and as lease negotiator.
Whether wanting to find your “own piece of Texas,” buy investment property, divest your existing property, buy a home, evaluate as property for development, or just get to know the area, Eric would be happy to meet and discuss the possibilities.
