Winners Revealed: D CEO’s 2021 Commercial Real Estate Awards

D CEO (April 29, 2021) North Texas was one of the nation’s top commercial real estate markets in 2020, despite challenges brought on by the pandemic. And last night, D CEO held its first in-person event in over a year to honor the region’s top transactions, dealmakers, developers, and other key players.

An invite-only crowd of industry leaders gathered at Gilley’s to celebrate the 51 projects and deals and 32 professionals recognized as finalists in D CEO’s annual Commercial Real Estate Awards program.

“Perhaps no other real estate community in the country has been better prepared to weather the challenges of the past year than ours,” D CEO publisher Gillea Allison told the crowd of about 300. “We’ve has been through some storms before and have always emerged stronger than ever. There is no doubt that we are poised to bounce back in a big way—we’re already seeing signs of that. But tonight, we’re not here to just look forward. We’re here to look back—at some of the amazing projects and deals that came together in 2020—and the industry professionals who made them happen.”
