Meet Alan Rose, Fort Worth Office Market Associate and new HLC team member!

Alan was born in Texas and grew up in Arlington. He attended college at the University of Alabama where he received two degrees, a Bachelor’s of Science in Business Administration and a Bachelor’s of Arts in Geology.

After spending time working in the oil and gas industry in Oklahoma (including some training in Abu Dhabi), Alan decided that real estate was what he wanted to do long term and headed back home to Arlington.
