Founder & Chief Executive Officer | Development
Don Eastveld is the founder and visionary of TNRG. Since coming to Houston in the 1970’s to do industrial development, Don has been a prominent leading figure on the Houston Commercial Real Estate scene. After forming TNRG in 1992 Don orchestrated what the Houston Chronicle declared “The largest Industrial transaction in Houston’s History” by acquiring the Gerald Hines portfolio of industrial buildings in Texas, Oklahoma and Florida in 1997. Through Don’s leadership, TNRG ‘s developments have expanded to include Industrial, Medical, Land, and Residential developments, which provide a who’s/who list of clients and investment partners with superior performance and maximum returns. Most recently, as the nation’s aging population progresses, Don’s skill set and commitment to quality projects has led The National Realty Group into the Senior Housing space with over 20 developments and acquisitions spanning a large portion of the United States.
