Realty Trust Group Continues Expansion with Office Opening in Texas

Healthcare real estate advisory and services firm Realty Trust Group (RTG) announced continued expansion with the opening of an office in Houston, Texas. This expansion will strengthen the company’s relationships with hospitals, physician groups, and property owners across the state establishing a regional hub for the southwestern United States.

“Our expansion into Texas reinforces our commitment to serving market-leading healthcare organizations in key regions across the country,” says Greg Gheen, President of RTG. “In Houston, you will find some of the largest concentrations of healthcare in the country where leading health systems, universities, physicians, and research organizations work collaboratively. As real estate advisors working exclusively with healthcare providers, it is a natural extension of our services and will represent our seventh regional office location.”

Craig Flanagan, vice president of RTG, will provide executive leadership for the Houston office. A 30-year veteran of the real estate industry, Flanagan has played a key role in numerous strategic and project development initiatives for leading healthcare systems since joining RTG in 2012. Kevin Baker and Colton Hager will join Flanagan in Texas delivering RTG’s full complement of services including healthcare real estate advisory, market analytics and planning, project development and owner’s representation, brokerage, property management and regulatory compliance support
