Ross Perot Jr. and one other selected to real estate Hall of Fame


Dallas businessman Ross Perot Jr. and real estate investor James Sowell are getting top honors from the North Texas commercial property industry.


Perot and Sowell next month will be inducted into the North Texas Commercial Real Estate Hall of Fame.


The award is sponsored by the North Texas Commercial Association of Realtors and Real Estate Professionals and will be presented on May 13 in Dallas.


Perot’s Hillwood companies have developed landmark North Texas real estate projects including the Alliance complex in North Fort Worth and Dallas’ Victory Park development.


Sowell’s investment firm, Sowell and Co., has built residential communities throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth area and in other Texas markets.


The new hall of fame members will join a group that includes the likes of Trammell Crow, Henry S. Miller Jr. and Roger Staubach. More than 70 past and present real estate players have been honored with this industry accolade.


Along with the awards to Perot and Sowell, a lifetime achievement award will be given to Dallas brothers Jerry and John Bradley, who’ve worked as commercial real estate agents here since 1970.
