MinkerTrahant & Associates, a real estate brokerage firm based in Fort Worth, Texas, has been acquired by CASE Commercial Real Estate Partners of Dallas. MinkerTrahant partners Richard Minker and Tyler Trahant will operate the CASE Forth Worth office, with Trahant as managing director and Minker as senior broker.
MinkerTrahant specializes in office and industrial tenant representation, project leasing and broker services. It is also affiliated with the Argus Self Storage Sales Network and provides self-storage brokerage in North Texas.
Minker was founder and principal of Richard D. Minker Co. in 1986. In 2009, Trahant returned to the Minker Co. as managing director and took over day-to-day operation. Trahant became a principal, and the firm's name was changed to MinkerTrahant.
Minker told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram that the merger was necessary for the firm to grow. "As our client base grew, so did the ancillary services required to meet its needs. CASE provided a solution by offering additional services such as property management, lease administration and construction among others. They offer a midsize firm atmosphere with large firm capabilities and global reach."
Formerly GVA Cawley, CASE was founded in 1986 and provides tenant representation, global corporate services, property management and leasing, lease administration, construction and project management, investment sales, development advisory, and sustainable workplace services. It also has offices in Austin and San Antonio, Texas. CASE is part of the TCN Worldwide organization of independent commercial real estate firms.
