SVN | J. Beard Real Estate—Greater Houston has marked its 20th anniversary in The Woodlands, according to a Feb. 1 announcement. Originally known as The J. Beard Real Estate Company, the company aligned with SVN International in 2021.

The commercial real estate brokerage provides services such as leasing, sales, site acquisitions, property management, development and consulting, encompassing both landlord and tenant representation services, according to a news release. The company consists of a team of about 60 representing all facets of commercial real estate, according to the release.

What they're saying

“Amid a transition in ownership in 2003, The Woodlands Operating Company unexpectedly dissolved a large portion of the commercial real estate division, and I was one among many subsequent layoffs," Managing Director Jeff Beard said in the release. "Many of the clients I had been serving reached out for continued assistance with their commercial real estate needs. I responded quickly and formed my own company, not only to provide for my family but so I could continue to serve these clients. This evolved into much more than I ever dreamed, as additional clients and opportunities continued to present themselves. J. Beard quickly grew from a small proprietorship into a thriving business.”
