WHO WE ARE
The Real Estate Councils of Texas (RECsTX) is a statewide coalition formed to monitor and advocate on legislative issues that impact the commercial and industrial real estate development industry. Organized in September of 2008, the Real Estate Councils of Texas (RECsTX) is comprised of:
The Real Estate Council of Austin
The Real Estate Council
The Real Estate Council of Greater Fort Worth
Houstonians For Responsible Growth
Houston Real Estate Council
The Real Estate Council of San Antonio
Recognizing a need for statewide representation, the associations work together to monitor and advocate on legislative issues important to the industry. RECsTX serves as an industry resource to educate the public and the Texas legislature.
RECsTX serves as a unified voice of the commercial real estate industry in Texas to establish a statewide economic footprint, advocate for sound public policy and educate policymakers on the potential impact of legislative and regulatory measures on the real estate development industry.
Commercial real estate development is a leading growth industry in Texas, generating more than $270.6 billion in total economic activity and $3.8 billion in state tax revenue. The industry directly employs more than 500,000 Texans, according to the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis and the Texas A&M University Real Estate Center. Real estate is the second largest Texas industry after manufacturing and the third most important industry in the state based on total economic impact. Read more about our economic impact.
