Getting Deals Done Quickly

We’re experts at property procurement. At CXRE, we get deals done quickly. With every deal we do, we’re respectfully aggressive with the deal negotiations. When you work with our team, we do our best to take the pain out of negotiations and do right by you.

At the same time, we never rush the negotiation process. Instead, we do all we can to speed the process as much as possible. Yet we make sure to dot all the i’s and cross all the t’s. As your advocates, we work quickly and efficiently on every deal.

However, we aren’t focused on speedy negotiations only. On top of being speed-focused, we’re also property management experts. Consequently, we can manage your existing portfolio with a wide range of full-service solutions. But we don’t offer a host of options to overwhelm and impress you.

Instead, we offer the solutions that best suit your needs. Regardless of the size of a single property, or the size of your portfolio, our scalable solutions fit your goals. Rather than cookie-cutter strategies, we provide customized solutions that make the most of your assets.

Tenant-Centric Solutions

In addition to getting deals done, another of our main goals is helping you maximize your existing commercial real estate assets. We do this through our team-based, tenant-centric model. Because we focus on tenants, we serve you through serving the companies that keep you in business.

After all, satisfied tenants are the lifeblood of Houston commercial real estate. Without tenants, your assets don’t perform well. Not only that, but underperforming affects your bottom line. Because of this, our solutions are designed to help you retain tenants.

Your tenant-centric property management & leasing team.

Without a doubt, we know that without tenants, your assets suffer. Our systems prioritize excellent communication and focus on your tenants’ needs. Whenever CXRE manages a property, your tenants never need to wonder if a call will be answered or if a maintenance request will be completed.

Our team of tenant-centric professionals gets things done in a timely manner, every time. In view of that, we focus on timely communication and high-quality service, which help you retain tenants and maximize your assets.

Leasing Below Market?


Harris County Commercial Real Estate

CXRE covers the entire Houston office market, from The Woodlands and the central business district to the West Beltway 8 and Clear Lake / NASA. In effect, wherever there’s commercial real estate, we’re there too. Because of this, we know the Houston submarkets. On top of that, we can help with all your Houston office leasing needs.


Houston Submarkets:

The Woodlands | Sugar Land | Katy | Spring | Stafford | Humble | Kingwood

Houston’s Largest Submarket Trends: Vacancy and Leasing Rates

In general, the closer you are to Houston’s central business district, the higher the asking rates. So, it’s no surprise that leasing office space costs more in the CBD.

For example, Houston CBD Class A office space goes for over $43 per square foot. In contrast, Class B offices lease for as little as $16 per square foot in some suburban submarkets.

Another trend is increased vacancy. Although overall, average office vacancy is up, vacancy rates vary throughout Houston.

For instance, vacancy in some suburban areas is as high as 44%. At the same time, some desirable submarkets (the CBD, The Woodlands, Greenway, The Galleria) have single-digit vacancy rates.

In particular, The Galleria goes against Houston’s largest submarket trends. Not only is it Houston’s second largest office submarket, but it also has vacancy rates below average.

On the whole, The Galleria is an ideal location for business. It also offers plenty of options for leisure activities. Because it’s one of Houston’s most desirable commercial areas, The Galleria has seen rental prices steadily rise while vacancy is falling.

Westward Expansion: Another Houston Submarket Trend

Because West Houston is one of the fastest-growing suburban areas, it’s a hotspot for relocation. On the whole, much of Houston’s recent suburban growth has been to the west, outside Houston’s Inner Loop.

Further west are areas like West Beltway 8, Katy Freeway West, and Katy Freeway East. Development along Beltway 8 has led to growth in commercial office space. In the coming years, expect more growth in Houston’s western commercial office markets.


At CXRE, we maximize lease term lengths and revenue by offering remarkable client service, building deep relationships, and engaging proactively with real estate users across Greater Houston.


As one of the top Houston commercial real estate firms, CXRE provides a complete range of property services across Harris County and the Houston—The Woodlands—Sugar Land metro area:

  • Asset financial management
  • Build-out project management
  • Facility maintenance
  • Stakeholder reporting

Information on the Houston Office Market

There are more than 2.3 million people in the City of Houston and more than 6.3 million in the entire Houston metro area. On top of that, the city continues to grow. For instance, between 2018 and 2019, almost 122,000 people moved to Houston.

Houston’s growth is second in the nation only to that of Dallas-Fort Worth. What’s more, experts predict this growth will continue. By 2020, Houston should have 2.5 million residents.

A Demand for More Commercial Office Space in Houston

A growing population means a growing demand for office space. However, Houston-area office occupancy rates are unusual. In general, Houston’s office vacancy has been rising for a few years. For example, Houston office vacancy increased from 13.4% in Q4 2014 to 17.5% in Q2 2019.

In general, higher vacancy and a glut of available office space is good news for office tenants. Indeed, Houston tenants have their choice of great office spaces at competitive rates. For example, sublease space decreased by $1.23 per square foot in the past 12 months.


Without a doubt, efficiency means doing the right things. CXRE focuses client resources on what’s most important.


Going beyond efficiency, CXRE is the Harris County leader in doing things right. We accomplish this through innovative business modeling, reporting, and asset maximization.
