During his tenure, Fleming has brokered over 200 lease transactions and represented landlords in over 50 commercial properties in the Dallas—Fort Worth market. These transactions include numerous newsworthy deals such as STIRR, Harlow MXM, Cane Rosso, Truck Yard, Bread Winners Café & Bakery, Elements Massage, among many others.

“It gives me great joy to join a company like Matthews™ which partners together as a team to make an impact on whatever market they set their eyes on,” said Fleming. “Currently, Texas is one of the hottest markets in the United States, and as it continues to grow, we are beginning to see numerous trends emerge, including a lack of retail vacancy to fill, national tenants rightsizing, and an increased line-up of balanced experiential tenants,” Fleming noted. “The market is hot, especially in Dallas—Fort Worth, and I look forward to further enhancing the Matthews™ brand in this dynamic trade area,” he concluded.

In his new role, Fleming will utilize his leasing expertise and extensive network to continue to grow the firm’s market share, drive value representing property tenants, and create an influential platform of unique opportunities for property owners.

“Our Retail Leasing Division is ecstatic about the addition of veteran and industry leader, Michael Fleming, to the team,” said Michael Pakravan, Senior Vice President and National Director of Retail Leasing. “Michael brings with him a proven track record in deal making, market knowledge, and expertise in the Dallas—Fort Worth market, a booming market where we continue to grow our brand and client services.”
