North Texas real estate leader on the firm’s new Arts District office space, company culture, and the year ahead.

D CEO (January 19, 2022) – It has been almost nine years since Sharon Morrison co-founded real estate firm esrp. Today the firm has six partners, including Morrison, and has grown to include 24 brokers. The company established its headquarters at The Star in Frisco—and even more recently, announced a second office location at HALL Arts in the Dallas Arts District.

Morrison has paid her dues in commercial real estate, starting out at The Staubach Co. in the industrial division at a time when women on that side of the business were few and far between. She moved over to Transwestern to expand its industrial team shortly after JLL purchased The Staubach Cos. in 2008. Morrison’s recent real estate transactions at esrp include the sale of two distribution centers in Texas and a warehouse consolidation for Neiman Marcus Group totaling around 1.5 million square feet and a lease renewal for insurer Holmes Murphy & Associates’ Dallas offices.

At the helm of a thriving North Texas firm, Morrison sat down with D CEO to share her thoughts about competing in one of the most active commercial real estate markets in the country.
