About The Real Estate Council

The Real Estate Council of Greater Fort Worth is a unified voice for the commercial real estate profession, influencing action and supporting change to accomplish long-term job growth and enhance the quality of life.

REC of GFW is made up of more than 500 members from 372 different companies who touch all facets of commercial real estate development. Besides conducting events and programs benefiting our members,

REC of GFW addresses policy issues that affect development.

The Real Estate Council believes that strong economic development is at the heart of growing Fort Worth, Arlington and Tarrant County.  


Members work closely with civic, business and public service leaders to strengthen the promotion of Tarrant County to companies, organizations and others whose presence increases the prosperity of our community.

We put on GREAT programs and events that educate our members and help then connect with one another.


The Tarrant County Commercial Real Estate Forecast is an exceptional event not to be missed by anyone interested in commercial real estate development.

We mentor and grow young leaders.

We focus on economic development and work with the City of Fort Worth, the City of Arlington and Tarrant County to create development that fosters growth for all our citizens. Our Bi-annual Voter Survey helps guide the projects and programs we put forward as well as structures much of the work of the Public Affairs Committee.
