The North Texas Commercial Association of Realtors has revealed its 2023 Hall of Fame Inductees. They are Rex Glendenning, founder of Rex Real Estate, and Ray Washburne, chairman and CEO of Charter Holdings.
The induction will take place at the organization’s 36th annual Hall of Fame event on Wednesday, May 3, 2023, at the Dallas Country Club.
A fourth-generation Celina resident, Glendenning has been brokering some of the region’s largest land deals for more than four decades. Among the largest projects he’s been part of include Granite Park, Trophy Club, and moving the Dallas Cowboys headquarters from Irving to Frisco, creating the iconic mixed-use project The Star.
“Rex’s prodigious creativity, work ethic, and negotiation skills have contributed greatly to the strong growth north of Dallas,” said Robert Grunnah, Hall of Fame co-founder and committee member.
Washburne is president of Highland Park Village, one of the most iconic retail centers in the area. He acquired the property in 2009. He’s also president and CEO of real estate investment firm Charter Holdings and a co-founder of M Crowd Restaurants, which owns and operates Mi Cocina and The Mercury restaurants.
“Ray Washburne is not only a dynamic leader but also a savvy entrepreneur who brings success to every endeavor with which he’s involved,” said Darrell Hurmis, Hall of Fame co-founder and committee member. “We also greatly appreciate the time he’s given in service to his college, community, and country.”
Price will receive the 2023 Industry Service Award for her leadership that brought significant development to Fort Worth.
