About Us

Read King is Houston’s leading full-service commercial real estate firm serving landlords, retailers, restaurants and developers from across the nation.  Founded by Jeff Read and Ewing King more than 25 years ago, the firm’s expertise includes investment and development strategies, shopping center and build-to-suit development, leasing, tenant representation, property management, land sales and dispositions.  Read King has developed over 3 Million square feet of Class A retail space in the Greater Houston area.  

Our focus on the Greater Houston market provides a unique competitive advantage for us and our clients to develop and operate here.   As native Houstonians, we have special expertise in serving both locally and nationally based clients as they enter or expand in this market.  Due to our developer and owner/operator experience, we build, lease and manage shopping centers with a clear objective of delivering value and high quality product to both landlord and tenant.

Our strategy, size, growth and culture are deliberate.  The founders give their direct attention to the integrity of the customer experience, as well as the well-being and productivity of their experienced and dedicated team members.  We also seek to continually give back to and enhance the communities in which we operate.  This responsive attitude and execution has resulted in hundreds of referrals and dozens of repeat assignments in all sectors of the market from across the United States.
