Lights Camera Action!  it’s July 2014 and I trust you are feeling the HEAT and the Commercial Real Estate energy around North Houston and The Woodlands TX.

So let’s just cut to the chase- do YOU like all the action, construction, congestion and more people?… or wish this all could return to the post Y2K small villages in the trees era?

I will now mention Vision- because Vision is responsible for what “it” is today.  “It” is the 10 mile radius around The Woodlands proper.  “It” makes me seldom leave the “bubble” because we now have everything around here- including a new Nordstroms (ladies beware).  ”It” is a safe haven for kids, schools, upbringing and sports- I have 4 little monsters so this is important.  “It” was created by visionaries we all know- starting with George Mitchell.  Thank you to Howard Hughes, Exxon and the other fine people, schools, churches and companies making The Woodlands home.

So do YOU embrace change or fight it- I guess you could complain a lot – or embrace it- or maybe move away to more country living elsewhere.  Everyone has an opinion and they are all good.  But lets face it, “IT” is here – the 9,000,000,000 billion pound guerilla has landed, we are officially in the bubble metropolis of competitive gen x’ers and old school’ers, high commerce, fast lifestyle, beeping cars and construction vehicles, overpasses and concrete- lots of concrete.

Vision- what will this place look like in 25 years- and will you embrace it?  will you call The Woodlands home?

What does this Logo/Brand mean to you?

HALBERDIER W H LOGO

What does your brand or company name/logo mean to you?  I am not sure it really matters what others may think about your own brand, your character, and your reputation.  One way to really connect, is ask me genuinely about it, get to know me better and you will understand my brand.  In return, I get to know you better and put you in the authentic good guy camp.  My brand is personal, it’s precious, and it has meaning beyond what others may think on the surface.  When you meet people, and want to genuinely connect- do you ask about their family – more than likely yes,…. well- (hint hint), the brand is no different.

With that said, how might you create a brand that goes viral, and debunks the hierarchical marketing of the old days?  Also, is your stock of brand best created by something not bluntly stated about in the function and industry it serves.  Think of a new company like …..Back Office LLC for support staffing… vs. a name like Synergy LLC for same purpose.  Which one makes you think more and might draw you in to know more?

Who is HALBERDIER- what is HALBERDIER, and why the “H”?  well it says real estate, but what specifically does that mean? Some may say, creating a brand that does not say what you do, is more special, unique and will have more stock value in this market.  Why, well…it’s personal and precious and makes us dream of what it could mean.  My brand is my 5th child- I will fight for my brand, I will go the extra mile for my brand, my brand is me, my character, and why/what/how I do what I do.

If you want to go viral and cause a stir, put a great amount of thought and love and energy into your brand!

What will YOUR verse be?

Trey —  May 21, 2014 — Leave a comment

Friends:

You probably have seen the tv commercial by Apple – what were your thoughts?  did it make you ponder your verse?  It really might awaken your purpose, your art, your life and being alive… so read this below and GO FOR IT!

We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering – these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love – these are what we stay alive for.

To quote from Whitman,

“O me, O life of the questions of these recurring. Of the endless trains of the faithless. Of cities filled with the foolish. What good amid these, O me, O life? Answer: that you are here. That life exists and identity. That the powerful play goes on, and you may contribute a verse.”

“That the powerful play goes on, and you may contribute a verse.”

What will your verse be?

What does that even mean?  Is this a spiritual thing or business buzz word or some wonky term??

Friends I am talking about what makes you feel FREE and ALIVE while also in the right zone!  Maybe it’s your Spirit, your Higher Power, a night away from the kids, a golf game with buddies, or perhaps your selfish agenda, late night parties, or even a vacation, or maybe a workout, some yoga or jogging- or physical intimacy with your spouse – or walking naked in your house (or backyard, or front yard), or having a fat bank account- or all, or portion, of the above?

One feeling I know we all like is our LIBERTY and FREEDOM.  So does that mean we do as we chose, when we want, how we want, what we want?  I have tried that- it did not work well for me.  Maybe if you are single, no kids, no real responsibilities, live on an island sipping Corona’s and are “tranquillo”… you can still milk the ultra selfish lifestyle…but here is the gist!

I believe the answer is in doing “Freedom by Following” the best man the world has ever known, Jesus Christ.  But lets just say, YOUR preferred good, moral and noble set of culture, beliefs, practices, religion, feelings and/or lifestyle.  The key for me is to make sure I FOLLOW truth and practices that are healthy, impact people and causes positively, are selfless, and consistent.  And even more radical,… the right freedom could be hidden in your HEART, with built up hedges in conviction and trust – and enduring love, …and not just our list of superficial works that make us “feel good”.

I have found real genuine authentic Freedom, the kind that feels right, mostly occurs knowing your are in the right place, then certain right time events happen – so then you smile, give thanks and do your best in obeying, acknowledging, accepting and being at peace in that abiding love you feel.  Are you following freedom – or are you a Freedom Follower?

“Trust in the LORD with all your heart, lean not to your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6

Friends:

Last Sunday’s paper said it again…what we all knew was coming now.  see cool pictures here http://www.chron.com/news/slideshow/Exxon-Mobil-039-s-new-campus-60749/photo-5819034.php

In all the great ExxonMobil campus, The Woodlands Howard Hughes, Springwoods Village, the new Grand Parkway news here, there is a tale of polarity – good with the bad, success with the growing pains, so take the hot with the cold.  Let’s take a look at a few briefly.

Good for Business – Bad for Traffic- need I say more…I think the term “reverse commute” is now obsolete in these parts,

Good for The Woodlands (and all North Houston) Real Estate Equity and Values – Bad for property taxes on such Properties and Bad (maybe) for vacated Exxon buildings in Greenspoint, Fairfax Virginia, Downtown Houston and other locations.

Good for Houston, The Woodlands, Montgomery County, North Harris County, Spring and Conroe Texas etc-  Bad for Fairfax and Exxon Mobil employees content “as is”

Good for Grand Parkway and +/-1600 acres Springwoods Village Development adjacent to – Bad for residents (and other business) who want a little peace and quiet in their backyard.

So the windup is, “it is what it is” – as they say.  And Exxon Mobil mega campus and all the surrounding effect – IS what it IS.  It’s Huge!  full article here http://www.houstonchronicle.com/business/real-estate/article/The-Exxon-Mobil-effect-5197565.php#/0

HALBERDIER Real Estate LLC has started the new year with a bang around the highly sought after Exxonmobil / Springwoods Village / and The Woodlands surrounding areas.

ExxonMobil Springwoods Area Commercial Development-The H Real Estate – HALBERDIER Holdings Video:

Trey Halberdier, founder of The H Real Estate, a Halberdier Holdings Company, was an early adopter of the ExxonMobil mega corporate campus intelligence in 2009 and hedged several future sites for acquisition and hyper appreciation for his companies and investors. Now, a handful of years later, Halberdier and his close allies are executing the game plan as initially planned.

One such prime land tract near Exxon, HALBERDIER Real Estate assembled ownership on, is 40 acres on the southwest corner of Hardy Toll Rd and Riley Fuzzel. This site is approximately 1,000 feet south from the new Grand Parkway intersect and Hardy Toll Rd – and less than a mile from ExxonMobil’s operations.  Halberdier and his team plan to commence horizontal ground infrastructure immediately and feel the highest and best use is an industrial office park, a multifamily play and an additional few pad sites off Riley Fuzzel.

Also, The H Real Estate is in active negotiations on another larger multi-million dollar commercial development just around the bend. This future announcement will be another bonus game changer to the area around the ExxonMobil campus, Springwoods Village, and The Woodlands TX areas.

Halberdier’s new investment & development firm’s footprint in Montgomery and North Harris Counties, promises to be impactful and enduring. ‘We believe our core values are consistent with our community – and look forward to decades of impact and service to The Woodlands and surrounding areas’, Trey Halberdier says. ‘This is just the start and we encourage all our sphere of influence to embrace and give back to this awesome community’

HALBERDIER Real Estate plans to scale up the enterprise organically and keep the brand and team streamlined as it grows. Trey Halberdier notes in his exciting 15 years in commercial real estate, 2014 will be the best.

‘We want to develop first class commercial real estate assets, provide for our community and leave a legacy’ says Halberdier. ‘This will be a great ride’

HALBERDIER Real Estate and The H Real Estate www.theHrealestate.com a HALBERDIER Holdings Company is a strong supporter of The Woodlands, South Montgomery and North Harris Communities and stands behind the Bruce Tough for State Rep District 15 Campaign.  Please learn more about Bruce Tough below and see some of the issues he is tackling.  Bruce Tough is a remarkable leader, visionary, mentor, client and friend.  Please vote for Bruce!

http://www.votetough.com/   snippet below from Bruce Tough website on issues at hand…

  • Public Safety – Law enforcement, fire protection and emergency ambulance services are always top priorities for residents and business in our District.
  • Transportation and Mobility – This vital issue is one of the primary reasons why I entered this race.  As our region continues to grow and prosper, and more and more visitors from literally around the world enjoy our community; transportation, mobility, and parking issues will become increasingly critical.
  • Water – As Texas residents are increasingly aware, water is one of the top issues that face our state.  Periodic drought conditions, depletion of both surface and underground water sources, our outlook for continuing population growth with the resulting increase in water demands, and the lack of effective conservation programs all serve to define this issue.
  • Education – The high-quality education systems that we have in District 15 are vital to the continuing success of our area.
  • Economic Development – Even during difficult economic periods, our region has continued to prosper.  We have added jobs, new businesses continue to move here, homes continue to sell, new homes are being built and sold, new retail outlets continue to open, world-class dining establishments are being added, and much more.
  • Fiscal Responsibility – I have always been committed to controlled spending, limited government, complete transparency, and that taxes should be kept as low as possible while still providing the high level of services our residents and businesses expect.
  • Quality of Life – Our region is based on the principle of making this a great place to live, work, and play.
  • Illegal Immigration – Sadly, the federal government has continually failed at its responsibility to secure our borders.  Our immigration system is fundamentally flawed, in part because the laws against illegal immigration often go unenforced.
  • Right to Life – I am a pro-life conservative and as an officer of the court will defend our state laws protecting the lives of the unborn.
  • Governance – Because of The Woodlands Township (about half of District 15 population) agreement with the cities of Houston and Conroe (which I was honored to help craft and finalize) that prevents annexation for another forty plus years,
  • Gun Control - I am a strong believer in the right to bear arms as protected by the 2nd amendment.
