Biography:

Casey earned his B. Sc. Degree in Agricultural Economics in 2002 and quickly emerged as a leading businessman in real estate and finance. At age 23, Casey founded Oldham Goodwin Group, LLC. Various successful real estate and business ventures ensued after that, driven largely from the collaboration between Casey and his business partner Hunter Goodwin class of ‘96. For many small and large business owners, Casey is a trusted advisor and mentor. Casey enjoys being a resource for entrepreneurs and sharing what has driven his success. In addition to serving as an employer and mentor, Casey’s philanthropic contributions positively impact the community.

Oldham Goodwin Group, LLC was formed in early 2004 as a commercial real estate brokerage firm. A short time thereafter, the company launched the commercial real estate management division. Early brokerage and management efforts centered on small multifamily and commercial projects, however it became apparent that an opportunity existed to serve larger institutional grade investments in underserved markets similar to Bryan/College Station. Encouraged by early achievements, Oldham Goodwin expanded its line of brokerage and management services throughout the region and soon began to grow into a team of highly skilled and specialized brokers and managers. Oldham Goodwin’s mission is: “Maximize value creation for all stakeholders by providing integrated commercial real estate services to select market segments.” The company’s distinct accessible expertise and connection with its target markets provides it a marked advantage with a broad scope of clientele. In 2006, having experienced success as a commercial real estate brokerage and management company, the company was able to expand into the commercial development and hospitality management arenas. Two years later, the management division grew its hospitality portfolio to include hotel partnerships with the most prestigious select service brands including Hyatt, Hilton, Marriott, Best Western, Wyndham and Intercontinental Hotels.

Oldham Goodwin Group, LLC employed more than 350 employees at the end of 2012, with a 2012 payroll of more than $9 million. The company manages 23 commercial properties valued at $~68 million, 11 multifamily units valued at $~51 million, and seven hotels valued at $~64 million, representing in total $~183,000,000 of managed real estate. Transaction volume in 2012 exceeded $100 million.
