We recognize that the key to our success lies in our people. That’s why, at the beginning of each month, we will take some extra time to celebrate our high-caliber commercial real estate professionals who mark milestone anniversaries while incessantly striving to win for our clients and associates.

The commercial real estate landscape is constantly changing, and these colleagues have seen it all during their tenure here. We asked some of them to share their thoughts on who has had the most significant impact on them, what their proudest accomplishment has been, how Stream has changed over the years, and what they are looking forward to in the next five years.

Here are some of their responses:

June 2024

Jack Sallis, Atlanta, 5 years  

What has been your proudest individual accomplishment at Stream so far and why? 

We have done some great deals in the five years I’ve been here. Collaborating with teammates led to being the Top Producer in Atlanta, which I was proud of. I think my proudest achievement is contributing to the growth of our Industrial team both in deal volume and by helping recruit/hire some amazing people.   

During your tenure at Stream, who has had the biggest impact on you and why? 

Everyone has been extremely helpful with transaction specifics and general career advice. Competing with the other members of our industrial team in Atlanta has caused everyone to up their game. I’d like to single out a few who have been here since I started: Bradley Dunn, Beau Acuff, Nick Peacher, and Rob Williams. I also have learned a ton from Simon Arpiarian, Mack Freudenstein, and Brad Bays.   

How has Stream changed since you arrived here? 

We have grown both locally and nationally, which has helped us increase our business over the past 36 months.   

What do you enjoy doing in your free time? 

I enjoy spending time with my wife and friends, going to Georgia games, playing golf, and being outdoors. 

 


Eric Herron, Austin, 10 years  

What has been your proudest individual accomplishment at Stream so far and why?   

I am very proud of every project my team has built. Projects that stick out are 501 Congress and, of course, RiverSouth. Most recently, I am proud to have won the City of Austin NESC Development assignment through a lengthy RFP process against the best developers in Austin. I am excited about the future of building the best buildings in Austin for Stream, our clients, and public projects.  

During your tenure at Stream, who has had the biggest impact on you and why?   

David Blackbird and Derek Land had the vision to bring me to Stream (after meeting them as Architect for 501 Congress) and give me the trust and tools needed to build a team needed to tackle any project, as well as to serve the rest of the Stream Leasing and PM teams and our clients. Will Nichols has now been leading the charge in Austin for several years and has been an incredible leader and supporter of our team and growing workload. In addition to the office leaders, Sam Owen, Amanda Coupe, Brad Phelp, and Clay Golden have all taught me so much over the years.   

How has Stream changed since you arrived here?  

It has changed a lot in 10 years. When I started, I think we had 600 people, and it has ballooned to over 1,400 in ten years. I have watched Stream develop from being viewed as a small Texas real estate company to a nationwide brand. With this kind of growth, I am proud of Stream for how they have grown significantly while maintaining the culture I fell in love with 10 years ago. 

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?   

I like to golf, hunt, and fish whenever my schedule allows, but my favorite time outside of work is spent with my amazing grandkids. My wife and I have seven grown children with eight grandkids.  

 


Juan Plascencia, Houston, 10 years  

What has been your proudest individual accomplishment at Stream so far and why?  

Taking care of all the tenants and accomplishing all my work orders on time.  

During your tenure at Stream, who has had the biggest impact on you and why?  

Travis Coleman because he has taught me a lot and has helped me immensely over the years, such as by helping me learn more about computers. 

How has Stream changed since you arrived here?  

Since working with Stream, I’ve been able to grow in the company and expand my knowledge and capabilities.  

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?  

I enjoy working out and jogging, as well as spending time with my dog Toby and my family. 

 


Antonio Ramirez, DFW, 25 years  

What has been your proudest individual accomplishment at Stream so far and why? 

During this time, I have had several accomplishments, but I think that the greatest one so far has been having the opportunity to meet and work with a lot of people and learn from them. In the same way, I feel proud to be here for other people and give them the best of me. 

During your tenure at Stream, who has had the biggest impact on you and why? 

Although he is no longer with us, it would have to be Mike B. I met Mike when I was 18 years old, he was a mentor to me and was also highly respected by many other colleagues. 

How has Stream changed since you arrived here?  

Wow! Stream has maintained its core values, which have not changed, making it, in my opinion, the best company to work for. As we can all see, what has changed about Stream since I started in 1999 is the growth from only a few employees to what we are now. Stream is expanding to other states and keeps growing all this because of its core values and the great people working in the company. This says a lot. 

What do you enjoy doing in your free time? 

Traveling with my wife and enjoying the outdoors, riding my motorcycle when the weather is nice, and lastly, keeping myself busy doing projects around the house.  

 


Dorothy Hamilton, Washington, D.C., 10 years  

What has been your proudest individual accomplishment at Stream so far and why?  

Growing our Property Management (PM) Talent/Team and portfolio from Eamon O’Shea and myself in 2014 to 63 people today. Additionally, growing the PM platform in 2014  from two buildings in Pennsylvania and Virginia to 45 buildings in D.C., Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, New York City.  

During your tenure at Stream, who has had the biggest impact on you and why?  

I would say Kyle Luby, as his faith in me has encouraged me to look beyond PM Ops into business development. The autonomy and support he has provided over the years has been invaluable. Every day at Stream provides new opportunities and challenges to keep that fire and energy burning. 

How has Stream changed since you arrived here?  

As our platform has grown locally and nationally, it has been great to see how our leadership is adapting technology and systems to ensure the support of our teams, clients, and tenants. 

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?  

Hiking with my partner Cameron and my dog Flora.  

 


Bradley Dunn, Carolinas, 10 years   

What has been your proudest individual accomplishment at Stream so far and why? 

Being trusted to build an industrial team in Atlanta at the age of 24 is high on the list. I’ve made lifelong friendships in the process, and I’m thrilled with how Stream’s Southeast industrial presence is taking shape. Additionally, hiring and training multiple top producers nationally has been incredibly rewarding. Witnessing their growth and success in the industry is a blast. Now, I’m learning from them! 

During your tenure at Stream, who has had the biggest impact on you and why? 

Chris Jackson, Blake Kendrick, and Ryan Boozer. We modeled much of our ATL/CLT industrial team’s business plan on their successful structure/culture in Dallas. Their support and guidance along the way helped shape our industrial teams and, consequently, much of my career.  

How has Stream changed since you arrived here?  

The two biggest changes I’ve witnessed are (1) how much more sophisticated we are in everything we do and (2) how much our brand has grown across the country. We’ve become a national player during my time here. 

What do you enjoy doing in your free time? 

I enjoy spending time with my family on the weekends, bow hunting, hiking, playing lacrosse, and coaching lacrosse. 

 


Christen Harvill, DFW, 5 years  

What has been your proudest individual accomplishment at Stream so far and why? 

Building a marketing team in Dallas that is hard-working, efficient, and that I enjoy working with every day! 

During your tenure at Stream, who has had the biggest impact on you and why? 

I have learned so much from watching Susan Bloomfield build the National Marketing team and platform over the past five years. She has not only mentored me in my own career but has also provided significant insight into what a growth strategy looks like and how to make it happen. 

How has Stream changed since you arrived here?  

In just five years, Stream has gone from 900 employees to over 1,400 employees and from 12 to more than 15 offices. While the company continues to grow, the opportunity to build your own path and grow within the company has continued to be a reason that I stay at Stream. 

What do you enjoy doing in your free time? 

Spending time with my three little girls! 

 


Patrick Russo, Chicago, 5 years  

What has been your proudest individual accomplishment at Stream so far and why? 

My proudest accomplishment at Stream has been opening the Chicago office in 2019 and helping to build and foster Chicago into an incredible team of 50+ professionals who now feel like family. 

During your tenure at Stream, who has had the biggest impact on you and why? 

Mike, Lee, and Chris, without a doubt, for believing in me. Their trust and partnership have been the guiding force that has motivated me to be better personally and professionally every day. Additionally, I wouldn’t be here without my incredible Chicago partners. We came together over the last five years to create something unique and special in Chicago to disrupt the market and provide best-in-class service to our clients, and it’s working! 

How has Stream changed since you arrived here?  

When I joined in 2019, we had around 800 employees and were in 11 markets. Today, we have over 1,400 employees and are in more than 15 markets, so the growth alone, nationally and locally, has been incredible and fun to be a significant part of. The beauty of our firm is that our core values and culture have remained intact, which is important to all the leaders, including myself. Our growth cannot outpace or impair our culture, that has been a paramount foundation that I appreciate. In addition, we have become more sophisticated from a resource’s perspective on a local and national level. This has allowed our private and flexible platform to allow our people to run and be as successful as possible. 

What do you enjoy doing in your free time? 

I enjoy spending time with family and friends, working on a new project at my house, and playing golf. Also, since joining Stream, I have gained a new appreciation for the outdoors, and I’m an aspiring fly fisherman. 

 


May 2024

Wade Harris, San Antonio, 5 years  

What has been your proudest individual accomplishment at Stream so far and why? 

It’s tough to pinpoint one single accomplishment that stands out as the proudest because I’ve had the opportunity to work on so many fulfilling projects during my time at Stream. From smaller projects like designing a floor identification system for a parking garage to managing a million-dollar GSA finish-out, each project has been a rewarding experience. These projects, along with everything in between and beyond, have provided invaluable learning opportunities that have helped shape my career. 

During your tenure at Stream, who has had the biggest impact on you and why? 

Several people at Stream have had a significant impact on me. First, there’s Liam Stagg. He saw me as a valuable addition to Stream and the San Antonio Construction Management department. He’s not just a boss; he’s a mentor, a peer, and a friend. Liam has an incredible depth of knowledge, and his unique approach to problem-solving is something I deeply respect. His calm demeanor in challenging situations has taught me the importance of focusing on mutual solutions to better Stream and our clients. Then there’s Allan Young, the Executive Managing Director and Partner of San Antonio. Allan has an amazing attitude, is always open to new ideas, and never fails to bring humor into the office with his smile, quick wit, and “joke of the day.” Both of these individuals have shaped the way I approach my work and have made my experience at Stream extremely rewarding. 

How has Stream changed since you arrived here? 

Since I started at Stream in 2019, I’ve seen tremendous growth across all departments. We’ve added talented people to our team, and it’s been a thrill to be a part of that journey. What I love is that even with all this growth, we’ve still held on to that small-office feeling with a strong sense of teamwork. From the moment I started working here I felt like a part of something bigger, yet still connected to everyone around me. 

What do you enjoy doing in your free time? 

I’m very involved in my church community, which keeps me busy in the best way. Beyond that, I love spending quality time with my wife, doing yard work, shopping for the next best deal, and refinishing furniture, to name a few. We love to travel around Texas to visit our kids and our new grandchildren. We also are always on the hunt for the next great BBQ spot. And when I get a quiet moment, you’ll usually find me reading a book. 


Bo Lopez, DFW, 5 years 

What has been your proudest individual accomplishment at Stream so far and why?  

Being promoted to Property Manager after starting as an Assistant Property Manager. I’ve learned so much and have been so fortunate to have a great team and leadership. 

During your tenure at Stream, who has had the biggest impact on you and why?  

Morgan Neely without a doubt. She has been so instrumental in my growth and knowledge. Her support has helped me through client deadlines and emergency situations at the properties. 

How has Stream changed since you arrived here?  

It’s only gotten BETTER. The team has grown so much, and we manage so many more properties than when I first started. 

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?  

I enjoy being a foster parent or playing music on guitar in my free time. 

 


Jason Moser, DFW, 20 years  

What has been your proudest individual accomplishment at Stream so far, and why? 

My 20th anniversary and being a part of something much bigger. I am proud to be on the Stream team and call it my family.  

During your tenure at Stream, who has had the biggest impact on you and why? 

The leaders: Mike, Lee, and Chis. Watching them lead people and a company through highs and lows…a lot of Stream’s competitors downsize in the low times, and Stream always kept its team on board. They value loyalty and understand that people are the key to success.  

How has Stream changed since you arrived here?  

In 2004, we were located at 511 E. John Carpenter and had 300 employees in three cities. Now, we are headquartered at 2001 Ross Avenue and have 1,400 employees in key core markets coast to coast. Since I was hired, Stream has grown to one of the country’s top national commercial real estate firms but still operates with the same boutique feel as it did when I joined.  

What do you enjoy doing in your free time? 

When I am not making calls, I enjoy spending time with my family, including my two girls and my wife, as well as traveling and going to the lake.  

 


Ebow Anumel, DFW, 5 years  

What has been your proudest individual accomplishment at Stream so far, and why? 

My proudest moment was the year of the freeze when I was able to maintain four properties and assist other Property Managers who were unable to make it to their properties.  

During your tenure at Stream, who has had the biggest impact on you and why? 

My fellow engineer, Joe Lopez, has had the biggest impact on me. He has become a great mentor and friend. I always can call and ask for assistance, and he has always been there to lend me a hand and advice.  

How has Stream changed since you arrived here?  

I have witnessed the growth of the company; the additional tools, classes, and support to make our jobs easier have grown exponentially. The Stream ream support is beyond expectations. 

What do you enjoy doing in your free time? 

I love vacationing and spending time with my family.  


April 2024

Jerry Mays, Senior Director, Design and Construction, Dallas, 15 years  

What has been your proudest individual accomplishment at Stream so far and why?  

Being on the ground floor of the establishment, growth, and success of office building development at Stream. 

During your tenure at Stream, who has had the biggest impact on you and why?  

Mike and Lee, who I essentially grew up with during our time at Trammell Crow in the 80’s, have been pivotal figures in my career journey. They called me on a Tuesday afternoon in 2009; two days later, I found myself joining them at Stream and never looked back. Their passion for commercial real estate remains as vibrant as ever, and I am proud to have them as my mentors still to this day. 

How has Stream changed since you arrived here?  

Growing from local to national, going toe to toe with the big boys, and winning! 

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?  

Spending time with my family and our grandchildren at our lake house on Lake Granbury.   


Gemma Davis, Senior Recruiter, Atlanta, 5 years  

What has been your proudest individual accomplishment at Stream so far and why? 

It’s hard to pick out any individual accomplishment as so much of what we do in the recruiting world is collaborating with leaders to find and hire great talent. However, I would say that watching people whom I’ve hired as analysts grow in their careers has been really rewarding and fulfilling, knowing that I’ve been able to have a positive impact on their lives, all while helping Stream find great people.  

During your tenure at Stream, who has had the biggest impact on you and why? 

Molly Robottom. She’s not only been an amazing boss and leader for the last five years but also became a great friend and role model!  

How has Stream changed since you arrived here?  

When I joined Stream in April 2019, we had 750 employees and 12 offices. Though we’ve nearly doubled in size since then and added new offices and service lines, we’ve been able to keep the same gritty, entrepreneurial, and dynamic culture that attracted me to Stream in the first place, all while adding much-needed resources to help us continue to support these growing teams.  

What do you enjoy doing in your free time? 

I only started about two years ago, so it’s a bit of a newer hobby, but I’m a long-distance runner and am beginning my training block for the 2024 Chicago Marathon in a couple of months!  


Ahmed Ali, Accounting Manager, 5 years

 What has been your proudest individual accomplishment at Stream so far and why? 

My proudest individual accomplishment at Stream has been developing my immediate team to be the top contributors for the controllerships team.  

During your tenure at Stream, who has had the biggest impact on you and why? 

Michele Chen has had the biggest impact. Her charisma, attitude, and work ethic have played a critical role in shaping and developing not just myself but our entire team. Her leadership is bar none and is one of Stream’s strongest assets.   

How has Stream changed since you arrived here?  

Since joining Stream, I’ve noticed some positive changes in our culture. While COVID-19 prompted adjustments, like reduced in-person interactions, it also spurred innovation and resilience within our team. Despite challenges, we’ve found creative ways to stay connected and maintain our bonds, fostering a stronger sense of unity. Overall, Stream has evolved dynamically, adapting to external circumstances while nurturing a resilient and cohesive team spirit. 

What do you enjoy doing in your free time? 

I enjoy playing sports like basketball, soccer, and football.  


Angela Hatcher, Assistant Property Manager, Dallas, 10 years  

What has been your proudest individual accomplishment at Stream so far and why?  

I’ve been so lucky to be a part of so many great teams, so it’s difficult to reference something individually, but I’m most proud of being a part of so many successful onboarding and sale transitions. It’s been great to work with so many teams while new properties are brought on or handed off to various owners.   

During your tenure at Stream, who has had the biggest impact on you and why?  

I’ve had the privilege of working with several talented property managers, but I wouldn’t be as successful as I am today without Lisa Spampinato, who I had the pleasure of working with for the majority of my time with Stream. 

How has Stream changed since you arrived here?  

It has grown so much. It’s been great to watch the company continue to evolve and expand into so many markets. 

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?  

I enjoy spending my free time with family and traveling with friends. 


Ladonna Montgomery, Technology Project Manager, Dallas, 15 years 

What has been your proudest individual accomplishment at Stream so far and why? 

I work with a team of talented IT professionals, and we have accomplished many things throughout the years. For example, the timing of rolling out Teams/SharePoint/One Drive before COVID-19 hit was a beneficial tool that allowed people working remotely to be more productive. 

During your tenure at Stream, who has had the biggest impact on you and why? 

It is hard to list just one person. Working with so many different talented people has helped me to grow along with Stream.  

How has Stream changed since you arrived here?  

It’s been truly an honor to witness such progress in the past 15 years—from a small team of 200 employees and four IT members to a thriving organization with more than 1,400 employees and more than 20 IT members.  

What do you enjoy doing in your free time? 

Spending time with family, friends, and fur babies. 


Preston Young, National head, Investor Services, Houston, 20 years  

What has been your proudest individual accomplishment at Stream so far and why? 

My most fulfilling achievement at Stream has been guiding numerous individuals to optimize their potential and advance their careers. Witnessing young analysts, associates, and property management professionals evolve into industry superstars and exceptional family members has been incredibly rewarding. 

During your tenure at Stream, who has had the biggest impact on you and why? 

Without a doubt, Kyle Valentine. You couldn’t ask for a better partner than him. There are a million attributes you could use to describe him, but he is the most dependable and humble person I have ever met. No one runs faster to a difficult task. But what most people don’t know is he is probably one of our best business developers as well.  

How has Stream changed since you arrived here?  

We now have more than 30 people, and we no longer have our office above the Dallas training center for McDonald’s, which is nice.  

What do you enjoy doing in your free time? 

Presently, I find myself as an accomplished Uber driver shuttling my four kids around to sporting events and academic endeavors. When I get a break from that, you will most likely find me somewhere outdoors.  

 


March 2024

Cannon Green, National Head, Industrial Development Services, Dallas, 15 years  

What has been your proudest individual accomplishment at Stream so far, and why? 

Two of my proudest accomplishments have been becoming a Top Producer of Stream and founding our industrial development vertical.  

During your tenure at Stream, who has had the biggest impact on you and why? 

My DFW partners. We push each other, care about each other, and support each other’s individual efforts wholeheartedly. 

How has Stream changed since you arrived here?  

We are much bigger in terms of people, but our culture continues to thrive, which is not an easy feat.  

What do you enjoy doing in your free time? 

I enjoy spending time with my family in Colorado and our Texas ranch and shooting competitive sporting clays. 


David Edmond, Building Operations Supervisor, San Antonio, 5 years   

What has been your proudest individual accomplishment at Stream so far and why? 

I am always eager to find ways to cut costs. When I am given a project and am able to complete it within the projected cost, I count it as an accomplishment. 

During your tenure at Stream, who has had the biggest impact on you and why? 

It is so difficult to choose. All my leadership has had a huge impact. If I had to pick one, I would choose Nate Simpson. His guidance on professional and personal matters is invaluable. I know that I can always go to him and get sound advice.  

How has Stream changed since you arrived here?  

From previous companies I have worked for, Steam has prioritized the importance of being a TEAM player. 

What do you enjoy doing in your free time? 

I enjoy woodworking, gardening, and spending time with my family. 


Lena Thomas, Vice President, DFW, 5 years  

What has been your proudest individual accomplishment at Stream so far and why?  

It’s hard to reference an individual accomplishment since everything I do is with a team! I’m proud of how I’ve helped to grow the national business and portfolios of our clients. I value those relationships and experience, and it is a prioritized goal of mine to continue growing the National Occupier Services platform, both with existing clients and new ones.  

During your tenure at Stream, who has had the biggest impact on you and why?  

Ryan Boozer of course! Ryan is my partner, mentor, leader, and life coach. Ryan’s training, guidance, and faith in me have had an invaluable impact on my time at Stream. He leads by example, and I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to work alongside him every day.  

How has Stream changed since you arrived here?  

Stream has changed in several ways over the last five years. We have grown both in infrastructure and presence in the DFW market but most notably in our people. I am continuously impressed by the talent and caliber of people joining our team every year, and it makes me excited for the years to come! 

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?

When I’m not working, I enjoy traveling, Texas country concerts, and cooking for my friends and family! I’m also extremely competitive, so I’m always game for a round of pickleball or sand volleyball! 


February 2024

Laura Gustine, Property Manager, Houston, 10 years  

What has been your proudest individual accomplishment at Stream so far and why? 

Becoming a Property Manager was a big accomplishment while here at Stream. I started at Stream as a Property Administrator and right out of college. So, I have learned a lot over the years.  

During your tenure at Stream, who has had the biggest impact on you and why? 

From day one Dawn Sartell has been by my side. She has been my cheerleader, mentor, and good friend. I would not be here today without the help from her. Especially in those first few years! 

How has Stream changed since you arrived here? 

Stream has changed a lot in the last 10 years. When I first started, we had quarterly luncheons that took place at restaurants or the junior league. Now we have too many people to do that and host at Stream HQ in the large meeting room.  

What do you enjoy doing in your free time? 

Being with family. I have a 3 year old who keeps me on my toes 24/7. 


Kyle Valentine, Executive Managing Director & Partner, Houston, 20 years  

What has been your proudest individual accomplishment at Stream so far and why? 

Launching a new market for Stream in Houston in 2006.  We were confident that we would be successful but seeing what it has grown into is something that we are all very proud of.   

During your tenure at Stream, who has had the biggest impact on you and why? 

It all starts with Mike, Lee & Chris.  They’ve always been believers in me and constantly challenge me to keep growing!  That being said, these last 18 years with Preston, Justin, and Matteson here in Houston have been pretty special.   

How has Stream changed since you arrived here?  

When I joined Stream, Mike & Lee would strategically interview you away from their office on the John Carpenter Freeway so that you wouldn’t know what you were really getting into!  Watching a band of aspirational entrepreneurs grow from a few dozen making waves in Dallas to one of the most respected CRE firms in the country has been incredible to participate in.   More importantly, we are no longer confused with Extreme Reality or Stream Energy.  But one thing that hasn’t changed is our culture which I believe will be the biggest driver of our growth moving forward. 

What do you enjoy doing in your free time? 

My free time is almost exclusively spent on a soccer field, football field, track or golf course watching my kids play sports.  


Steven M Sumerfelt, Chief Pilot, Dallas, 15 years  

What has been your proudest individual accomplishment at Stream so far and why?   

Upgrading the company plane was a high point. Along with that, and probably more importantly, we recently added an advanced first aid kit with AED and a satellite phone for direct access to emergency room doctors.    

During your tenure at Stream, who has had the biggest impact on you and why?    

I try to learn from everyone I work with, but Mike McVean has had the biggest influence on my time with Stream.  Mike’s position in the company, combined with his aviation knowledge, has given me an excellent source to run ideas by or talk through a scenario. It’s rare to find a senior company executive who takes his flying as seriously as he does. 

How has Stream changed since you arrived here?   

The growth at Stream since I started my career here has been incredible!    

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?    

My wife and I enjoy hiking and exploring new places. I also like to hunt and target shoot. 


Victor Saldana, Building Technician II, Austin, 15 years  

What has been your proudest individual accomplishment at Stream so far and why? 

 When I started working with Stream, I didn’t have much experience in building maintenance. I only oversaw five small buildings at that time. After a short period, I was moved to the industrial portfolio with Darrell Peay, the shift engineer, with a total of 36 buildings. Over the years and the company’s growth, we were able to inspect and maintain 96 buildings. So far, I’m most proud to become a Building Engineer Tech II with more experience and knowledge than when I started. Now, I feel confident handling all types of circumstances and resolving all kinds of problems, but speaking honestly, I consider it just the start of my journey in this great company. 

During your tenure at Stream, who has had the biggest impact on you and why? 

Darrell Peay has had the biggest impact on me. I owe him most of the maintenance knowledge I have acquired. He always has the time and the availability to teach me something new every time I work with him.  

How has Stream changed since you arrived here?  

When I started 15 years ago, Stream Austin was just a small company. Now, it’s the largest property management firm in Austin, managing over 17 million square feet. 

What do you enjoy doing in your free time? 

I love to spend quality time with my family. I also enjoy fishing and traveling to different countries and learning about their culture, history, and gastronomy. 


Joseph Wolf, Accounting Manager, Dallas, 5 years  

What has been your proudest individual accomplishment at Stream so far and why? 

I was able to bring my years of experience in property accounting to Stream and use my knowledge to work on some challenging properties. Stream saw my high-quality work and positive attitude and felt I would be an asset as a leader within the accounting department. I’ve since been promoted to Accounting Manager, leading a strong, effective team.   

During your tenure at Stream, who has had the biggest impact on you and why? 

During my time with Stream, two people, Edward Starr and Dov Clayton, have provided excellent examples of how to be a strong leader. They have shown by example that a leader who supports and encourages their team will result in a more positive workplace. I have taken these examples along with my personal experiences to try and lead my team in the way I would want to be treated.  

How has Stream changed since you arrived here?  

The largest change in the last five years for almost every company was the impact of COVID-19 and the change in what the “workplace” environment can be. In the accounting department, there was a change to remote working for most of the department. The initial challenge was learning how to adjust our interpersonal communications as we were no longer across from each other in cubicles. It was serendipitous that Stream had adopted using Teams before COVID-19, so the department had the tools in place ready for this sudden, unexpected change in the workplace. Accounting has been very successful in this transition.  

What do you enjoy doing in your free time? 

As a father of four children in the late elementary and middle school years, I spend a lot of time as a driver for all their extracurricular activities. I used to enjoy playing sports, but now I either watch from the stands or coach the soccer team. As a child of the early 80s, I enjoy reading, watching movies, and playing video games, which I’ve shared with my kids. 



January 2024

Ryan Boozer, Managing Director & Partner, Dallas, 10 years    

What has been your proudest individual accomplishment at Stream so far, and why?     

Several transactions come to mind, but the biggest accomplishment is helping multiple partners increase the team’s revenue. I have found that it is more rewarding watching younger people succeed at a high level.  

During your tenure at Stream, who has had the biggest impact on you and why?    

That is a challenge between a few people. The friendly competition between Blake Kendrick, Cannon Green and Seth Koschak has been an amazing “iron sharpens iron” experience. Watching high-functioning people and trying to implicate those practices into my own life has been critical to my growth.

Andrew Katzfey, Senior Associate, San Antonio, 5 years   

What has been your proudest individual accomplishment at Stream so far and why?  

It is difficult for me to pick a proudest accomplishment since I’ve worked on so many cool projects during my tenure with Stream. I’d have to say executing a full building lease at Two Winnco Center in late 2023 would be one of my prouder moments. It was a challenging project that had been vacant for years prior to Stream taking the listing. We were able to get the property leased to a great tenant and on a term deal after some lengthy and challenging negotiations. It was an excellent win for Stream and our newest client.   

During your tenure at Stream, who has had the biggest impact on you and why?  

I’d say my teammates have been my biggest impact. I had the opportunity to join a team of great people who helped me build my business and learn the market. From there, I have really enjoyed winning assignments and executing business plans with all my colleagues. In my opinion, it is the best aspect of being a part of the Stream team.   

How has Stream changed since you arrived here?  

Stream has grown tremendously since I joined in 2019. We have added some great talent throughout brokerage, property management and CM, and it has been a great process to be a part of. I appreciate that with all the growth, we have maintained a small office culture and team atmosphere.

Chris Jackson, President & CEO, Dallas, 20 Years

I am most proud of being on the team that helped build Stream’s DFW office into what it is today. The quality of the people, the creativity, the culture and the size are impressive.

During your tenure at Stream, who has had the biggest impact on you and why?

Our two founders, Mike McVean and Lee Belland. They’ve been my friends, partners and mentors over the past 20 years. Their leadership, support and never losing sight of their vision for Stream, through good times and challenging times, stand out. Their willingness to empower us as leaders and to make mistakes along the way (a lot of mistakes) and for putting us all in partnership together in a way that most founders aren’t willing to do. 

How has Stream changed since you arrived here? 

Well, we’re a lot bigger! We maybe We maybe had 40 people when I joined Stream. Now we’re close to 1,400. It’s not as hard to get a meeting as it used to be. I remember traveling the country with Kyle Valentine and Preston Young in the early years and having to explain to people who Stream was and what we did. That’s no longer the case.

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?

I love traveling with my family, spending time in Colorado, and fishing and hunting with my son, buddies, and friends from Stream. I used to like golf, but you get worse as you get older, so I don’t like it anymore.


Corinna Bozeman, Property Manager, Houston, 15 Years  

What has been your proudest individual accomplishment at Stream so far and why? 

I would have to say it’s my longevity. I am proud to be a part of Stream for as long as I have and I honor it with my loyalty and commitment through all the changes, all the good times, and the challenges that I have experienced throughout the years.

During your tenure at Stream, who has had the biggest impact on you and why? 

Phoebe Gregg because she is the one who has shown me, by example, how to be a good manager, she supports my growth, encourages my learning and was the advocate for my promotions.

Chris Miller, Director of Corporate Security, Regional, 5 Years

What has been your proudest individual accomplishment at Stream so far and why?

There have been a few, but one that comes to mind is the Pandemic Plan I wrote for SDC that was widely used during COVID. I started it very early because I went through the H1N1 pandemic in 2009 and saw how quickly it spun out of control without all the social media tools available now. We had our plan in place long before our competitors, and I was asked to speak at industry professional sessions regarding plan deployment and management.

During your tenure at Stream, who has had the biggest impact on you and why?

My staff has had the most significant impact on me because without them doing their jobs accurately and professionally, I could not do mine. Additionally, I’ve been associated with SDC for nine years (four as a consultant and five as an employee). During that time, I’ve had four managers. My current manager has allowed me the freedom to do my job effectively, resulting in a more refined service delivery for my organization.  

How has Stream changed since you arrived here?

Since I arrived at Stream, the company has grown significantly, allowing us to provide services to companies of all scales while maintaining our robust level of service.

During your tenure at Stream, who has had the biggest impact on you and why?

Stream has grown so much. I see it in all the new procedures and infrastructure that have been implemented.

Ee Lim, Property Accountant, Remote, 5 Years

What has been your proudest individual accomplishment at Stream so far and why?

My proudest accomplishment would be graduating from college with a bachelor’s degree because it helped me pursue my dreams in the career path that I wanted which was accounting.

During your tenure at Stream, who has had the biggest impact on you and why?

My previous supervisor Angela Thomas had the biggest impact on my life. When I first started at Stream five years ago, I had no experience and no college education. She took a chance on me and changed my life. It was because of her I decided to go back to school to finish my degree. She motivated me as well as pushed me to finish college so I would be able to move up in my career. She was also very supportive of my decision to leave her team to transfer to project accounting. Although she is no longer with Stream, I would not be where I am without her guiding me.

How has Stream changed since you arrived here?

In Project Accounting, the biggest change I have seen Stream make was going remote. After COVID, the company department decided to remain remote.

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?

Outside of work, I love to spend time with my family as well as reading.


Nicolas Simon, Accounting Manager, DFW, 5 Years

What has been your proudest individual accomplishment at Stream so far and why?

In general, I have a sense of gratitude for my role as a leader and for having the opportunity to train new accountants who join our company. Being that resource and mentor for new team members provides that accomplished feeling when you see these individuals grow into their roles and get nominations and accolades from other departments and clients for a job well done.

During your tenure at Stream, who has had the biggest impact on you and why?

Without a doubt, that person is Samita Ghale. She has been my leader since I first joined Stream. Thanks to her leadership style and accounting knowledge, she has shown me how to become a better accountant and leader myself. She is always available to answer my questions and prepares me for various scenarios within our department. I’m grateful for all the guidance Samita provides.

How has Stream changed since you arrived here? 

Stream has grown and diversified so much since I came on board. Our department seems like it has nearly doubled in size. We’ve almost gone completely paperless. We have hybrid and remote work opportunities. Stream has also proven that even a global pandemic couldn’t slow it down. 

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?

In my free time, I enjoy spending it with family, friends and my beautiful Great Dane, Olive. I play in a few rec sports leagues like kickball and dodgeball. I also enjoy traveling. My husband and I are usually on a cruise ship somewhere around the world.

We’ve grown and have added a lot more resources to help more people make money.

Adam Jackson, Chief Investment Officer, Dallas, 15 Years

What has been your proudest individual accomplishment at Stream so far and why?

One of the most exciting things that I played a role in accomplishing was the first investment that I made at Stream (and in my career) in 2011. It was an office building that we purchased in Houston that later sold for a large profit. The success of the investment was fun, but the best part was believing enough in ourselves to move forward at a very uncertain time and achieving returns that were greater than any of us expected.

What are you looking forward to in the next 5 years at Stream?

We have made tremendous strides over the last five years to grow the company while continuing to maintain our culture. I’m most excited about watching what all our great people are able to accomplish.

Guiding clients through very turbulent times in the office environment, then seeing them create wealth when we come out the other side.
