Below are a few client testimonials for Drake Realty Group, a national commercial real estate investment advisory brokerage firm based in Houston, Texas.
The Dinerstein Companies
“We have worked with Kyle Drake and Drake Realty Group, LLC on multiple development projects in not only Houston and Austin, but all over the country. Kyle and his team have an understanding of what we want and represent us extremely well. Drake Realty Group combines work ethic and integrity, with knowledge of the ‘key ‘elements needed to get deals done. I would highly recommend them to anyone seeking commercial real estate expertise."
President, The Dinerstein Companies
“As the owner of a well located site in Austin, I've been approached by brokers and developers for over ten years. When I met with Kyle on a referral from a friend, he quickly separated himself from the crowd. Kyle knows the market at a property level, and knew the current value of the property, as well as estimates of "highest and best case" scenarios. More importantly, he had a local team of professionals from engineering to zoning in place with recent successes with similar developments in the market. Like my friend, I highly recommend Kyle Drake and his team.”
Principal, Edgewater Group
“Kyle is the textbook example of an effective hard-working broker. He has a keen sense for great sites in great locations, and understands my criteria for sites. He won’t waste my time with sites that he knows I won’t be interested in. Regardless of the market, he is not afraid to put in the leg work necessary to set up the transaction for success. Whether a single parcel or an assemblage with complicated zoning implications, Kyle works with, guides and supports his client through research, due diligence and the transaction process to make the acquisition or sale go as smoothly as possible.”

“It is with pleasure and gratitude that I share my comments in my experience with Kyle Drake (Drake Realty Group, LLC) in commercial real estate brokerage services. While our company has been active in all phase of commercial real estate development, I have rarely before encountered such a level of excellence.
The experience at each phase of the buy and sales effort was superior, such as innovative efforts in developing prospects, detailed and comprehensive due diligence, proactive sales negotiations and client commitment. All of these tasks, whether business-related or interpersonal, were accomplished with a noticeable degree of competence, humility, integrity and grace.
Thus, I highly recommend Kyle Drake for commercial real estate needs”.

The Morgan Group
"I've been very impressed with Kyle Drake and Drake Realty Group's dedication and work ethic in locating and putting together attractive development opportunities. Kyle's intricate knowledge of the Texas markets and his ability to identify top tier sites is outstanding. Kyle realizes that location is paramount for any new development site and isn't deterred by opportunities that aren't straightforward. I look forward to continuing to work with Kyle and Drake Realty Group on future projects."
Michael S. Morgan
CEO, The Morgan Group
“I believe that a broker’s role ultimately is to create an efficient market. He is in the information business and the relationship business. Kyle Drake and Drake Realty Group have exceeded our expectations in both of those areas. Kyle uses his network of relationships to identify an opportunity for a buyer and to identify the right buyer for a particular seller. In our specific experience with Drake Realty Group, Kyle acted as a match-maker, if you will, to introduce our firm StreetLights Residential to a local Houston land owner whose class ‘A’ urban infill property was not on the market, but who entertained the idea of selling once he understood the benefits of our developing his land. Also, Kyle has time and time again provided our in-house market analysts with multifamily rent, absorption, supply, land sales, and improved multifamily sales information. This information has proven critical in Streetlights Residential entering the Houston market and quickly pursuing urban infill development opportunities. I highly recommend Kyle Drake and Drake Realty Group.”

"Drake Realty Group is the best commercial Real Estate Group in Texas, bar none.
"Time is money, especially in today's complex and rapidly appreciating real estate market. We were lucky to find Kyle Drake after dealing with several other Brokers. I know a bit about real estate and have a license myself. Kyle was a world apart, he aggressively went out and actually knocked on doors for us, covering virtually every property in our area. Kyle is also lightning fast in responding to questions and emails, which my group appreciated. He is data driven and thoroughly researched all of our options.
I would never even think of using anyone else, never saw anyone work so hard or so intelligently for me. Time is money, Kyle saved us time and money."
