Kitty Henry has practiced real estate law in Dallas for over 30 years. She is a shareholder at Munsch Hardt Kopf & Harr, P.C., where she leads a team of attorneys in handling leasing and property management for approximately 15 million square feet of industrial properties. She has been a member of TREC since 2003 and has previously served as the TREC Community Investors Secretary and is currently a member of the TREC PAC. She is serving as the 2024 TREC Secretary.

Why did you join TREC? Why do you continue to be a TREC member today?

I have been with Munsch Hardt for almost 30 years, and our firm has been active in TREC for longer than that. I originally joined TREC based on our firm’s involvement and encouragement to do so.  I’ve really enjoyed being a member for the networking, the programs, and for the good that TREC does in the community. I feel that I’ve been able to build relationships with people across the real estate industry, not just in my own sphere of real estate law.

What is something you wish more people knew about that TREC does?

I think a lot of people don’t know about all of the good work that is being done behind the scenes through TREC Community Investors. I’ve really loved being involved and learning more about that. Because they do so much behind the scenes to keep things moving, it’s not always seen. There are things that are more public, like the Dallas Catalyst Project, but the everyday work that gets done connecting nonprofits to TREC members, helping them navigate City Hall, and catalyzing revitalization even at the smallest level, so easily goes unseen. Even I still continue to learn new things they are doing all the time, especially when I got the chance to serve as the TREC Community Investors Secretary.

Currently, I am working with some of the outstanding TREC staff members to draft a “Memorandum of Understanding” for Dallas Catalyst Project: Mill City. I will work with the project committee to finalize and approve it and will meet with the nonprofits to explain it and obtain their agreement. It’s just one of the many steps that goes into making the broader work possible.

Why is Dallas such a great place to work in commercial real estate?

It seems like everybody is moving to Texas, and a lot of them are moving to Dallas. Success breeds success, and in the Dallas commercial real estate industry, we’ve been fortunate to have a lot of it. We are also so privileged to have had so many great industry leaders who have provided a strong legacy to follow and uphold.
