The MetroTex Association of REALTORS® celebrated the grand opening of its new headquarters on December 12.
Planning for the new 42,000-square-foot headquarters building on Kinwest Parkway in Irving began just under five years ago. As membership levels grew, MetroTex leadership created the vision of a new facility to better serve its 27,000-plus members.
“This new home will be a place where REALTORS® and our business partners gather to learn, to share and discuss new ideas; to network, to become better leaders, and mostly, to give their time for the betterment of the real estate industry,” said MetroTex CEO Janet Kane.
Prior to the new headquarters, MetroTex had been in its Stemmons location since 1989 and seized the opportunity to start a site search in early 2020. Construction began in May of 2021 on the 10-acre site that is federally protected natural wetlands.
During the planning process, MetroTex worked with design firm BokaPowell, architects at Muckleroy & Falls, and The Projects Group as its project management partner.
The new headquarters hosts event space with a capacity of up to 320 people, offices, meeting rooms, a retail outlet for REALTOR® supplies, and classrooms for professional development.
“The new MetroTex headquarters is the end result of the incredible commitment by numerous MetroTex volunteers,” said MetroTex President Taylor Walcik. “It is an incredible facility that our members will benefit from for years to come.”
