The Future of DFW Real Estate: A Conversation With Industry Icons

The Dec. 2 event will feature Jack Matthews, Lucy Billingsley, and Mike Berry—plus recognition of D CEO's 2020 Commercial Real Estate Award winners.

There’s no doubt that Dallas-Fort Worth’s commercial real estate industry has seen some wild swings over the years. But no other market is better at driving the high-highs and weathering the low-lows.

D CEO has gathered three industry icons to talk about the resiliency and innovation of the North Texas market—and what the future may hold—at a Dec. 2 breakfast event.

The three legends are all past award winners in D CEO’s Commercial Real Estate Awards program:

  • Lucy Billingsley, partner, Billingsley Co.
  • Jack Matthews, president, Matthews Southwest
  • Mike Berry, president, Hillwood

As part of the event, D CEO will recognize honorees in its 2020 awards program, including:

  • Pioneer Award: Gabriel Barbier-Mueller, Harwood International
  • Developer of the Year: Joseph Pitchford, Crescent Real Estate
  • Broker of the Year: Jeff Ellerman of CBRE
  • Commercial Real Estate Executive of the Year: Michele Wheeler of JacksonShaw
  • Excellence in Architecture and Design: Scott Lowe of 5G Studio Collaborative

The program will be held from 7:30 a.m. to 9 a.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 2. It will be broadcast live from Gilley’s, with virtual tickets available for purchase for $30. Click here for additional details.
