March 24, 2009

Greg Fuller, President of NAIOP North Texas, announced the Fourth Annual Texas Shoot-Out Real Estate Challenge to be held on April 2, 2009, at The Dallas Country Club. This year's competition will include graduate-level teams from seven Texas schools: University of Texas, Southern Methodist University, Texas A&M, Baylor University, Texas Tech University, Rice University and Texas Christian University. The teams will compete for $10,000 and $7,500 cash prizes, to be split between the students and colleges.

"Our goal with the event is to bring the North Texas brokerage community closer to the Universities' real estate centers," said Fuller. "This competition has been a huge success as the teams attempt to solve real-world commercial real estate challenges and present their solutions."

The event is open to the public at 4:00 p.m. on April 2nd, when a panel of 10 real estate executives from around the country will judge the teams' solutions. The Shoot-Out's lead sponsor is PlainsCapital Bank; LYNOUS Talent Management provided this year's case study.
