Chairman / Founding Partner
With nearly 25 years of multifamily real estate experience, Franks is consistently recognized as one of the leading multifamily investment specialists in North Texas. He has closed more than $3 billion in multifamily sales in approximately 300 apartment transactions. During his career, he has represented developers, investors, lenders, receivers, and REITs with their assets.
Much of Todd’s success is derived from his ability to provide his clients with an arsenal of services, from strategic planning in ground-up construction and comprehensive financial analysis focused on balance sheet implications to business plan consulting market and demographic analysis of potential tenant bases, and other decisions that can impact the bottom line. This sophisticated approach to business allows him to employ his philosophy of a long-term approach and assist clients in a long-term, strategic consulting role, as opposed to simply selling an asset and negotiating pricing from a one-off transaction perspective.
Franks is a Certified Commercial Investment Member (CCIM), Apartment Association of Greater Dallas Member (AAGD), Forbes Real Estate Council Member, and a member of the National Multi Housing Council (NMHC) where he was invited to share his expertise on a panel of his peers at the NMHC conference in 2021.
Due to his expertise, Franks is regularly asked to speak about multifamily real estate and has been interviewed by such publications as “The New York Times,” “Forbes,” “The Dallas Morning News,” “Dallas Business Journal,” “Globe Street,” “Bisnow” and many others. He has also served as an expert witness in trials that require multifamily and financing expertise.
Franks earned his bachelor’s degree in Science from Michigan State University.
