NORMAN — Fleske Commercial Group, a new commercial real estate firm, has formed after separating operations from Equity Commercial Realty. Offices are at 3411 W Rock Creek Road, Suite 120.
Eric C. Fleske, managing broker and CEO, represents hundreds of properties and offers project development, real estate investment consulting, property brokerage, property management and design services.
Fleske was a partner and managing broker for Equity Commercial Realty with founding principal Judy J. Hatfield, with whom he worked for 23 years. Equity Commercial Realty continues under Hatfield’s leadership. Nova Fleske, his wife, is the new firm’s chief financial officer and licensed broker
“Commercial real estate in central Oklahoma has experienced phenomenal growth in the past several years,” Fleske said. “The needs of our clients and tenants have evolved along with that growth, and we believe that our approach in this market sets us apart from other firms.
"Our brokers' combined 70 years’ experience in development, brokerage, management and consulting positions us to fulfill the needs of the market for years to come.”
The firm has 12 employees, with five licensed brokers and seven staff members. The firm manages through its partner, Touchstone Management, over 1 million square feet of space, mostly in central Oklahoma. It also develops over 200,000 square feet of office, retail, medical and industrial products per year and brokers, on average, 1.4 million square feet totaling over $50 million per year.
Through its partner, Phase One Design, the firm has designed over 55 projects. Fleske and Josh White each have earned the Certified Commercial Investment Institute Member designation, while Fleske also holds the Society of Industrial and Office Realtors designation.
