Incredibly tragic news for Fort Worth’s business and real estate community. Word comes from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram that one of Cowtown’s biggest boosters, Susan Halsey, has succumbed to cancer. We are heartbroken to hear about this terrible loss, and our thoughts are with Halsey’s friends and family.
If you’re not familiar with Halsey, this paragraph from her obituary really speaks to how dedicated she was to the Fort Worth community:
But beyond the high-dollar deals, Mrs. Halsey felt so strongly about Fort Worth and its commercial real estate community that when leaders with the Real Estate Council in Dallas asked her more than a decade ago to a meeting to talk about how they could tap into the Fort Worth brokerage community, she returned to Fort Worth, called on some high-powered leaders and single-handedly started the Real Estate Council of Greater Fort Worth. Today, the organization has more than 350 members focused on public policy issues.
