Schimming Company Commercial Real Estate agent receives commission check

Texarkana, AR-TX, October 3, 2017– TexAmericas Center (TAC) has a new tenant on their Central Campus, resulting from a partnership with local realtor Landon Huffer of Schimming Company Commercial Real Estate. Mr. Huffer introduced El Dorado Glass and Mirror Co., Inc. to TexAmericas Center in August of this year. The TexAmericas Center Board of Directors was able to then approve a lease for El Dorado Glass at their board meeting on Tuesday, August 22nd for approximately 4,750 square feet. The lease term will be for a period of twelve (12) months, commencing on September 1, 2017 and will terminate on the 31st day of August, 2018.

At the most recent board meeting on September 26, 2017, Boyd Sartin, Chairman of the TexAmericas Center Board of Directors, presented Landon Huffer of Schimming Company Commercial Real Estate with a commission check for $665.00. Mr. Huffer’s efforts in locating El Dorado Glass & Mirror Company were recognized at the meeting and the board thanked him for his partnership. TexAmericas Center offers a commission for leads that result in signed lease agreements. In 2016, TAC presented Mike Kelly of Texarkana Legacy Group with a commission check for $1,803.62 for a signed lease agreement with VSE Corporation.

“We appreciate our partnership with Schimming Company Commercial Real Estate, and we hope to continue to work with Mr. Huffer to bring more tenants to TexAmericas Center.”

The Executive Vice President and Chief Economic Development Officer for TexAmericas Center, Eric Voyles, has made it a point to proactively engage local commercial realtors by sending out a monthly email with TexAmericas Center’s available buildings and sites listed—called the “Hot Sheet”. Mr. Voyles has taken the time to add realtors to the running list over the last few years as he meets or becomes aware of new contacts. TexAmericas Center utilizes several additional marketing listings to promote their available properties and sites, including but not limited to: the Commercial Real Estate sites: CoStar and Loopnet, The Right Corner of Texas’ property database, and TexAmericas Center’s internal property database. Local realtors continue to be a proven, valuable option for leads amongst these marketing efforts.

“Our local realtors are often the first point of contact for businesses looking to grow, expand, or seeking a new site in the greater Texarkana market,” said Eric Voyles, Executive Vice President / CEDO for TexAmericas Center, “TexAmericas Center wants to be an option for these realtors and businesses, and we will continue to partner with real estate companies who have applicable leads.”

In order to offer a more attractive and competitive building option, TexAmericas Center will complete a renovation on 175 Arkansas Avenue for El Dorado Glass and Mirror Company by the middle of this month. The renovation will include electrical upgrades, new paint, and new flooring. El Dorado Glass and Mirror Co., Inc. is currently headquartered in El Dorado, AR and will be performing on-site aluminum storefront and curtain wall fabrication, glass storage, and overhead door storage. The company is expected to create 5 jobs and invest $250,000.
