We are KMD Studley
KMD Studley provides specialized commercial real estate advisory services to sophisticated clients doing business in the Central Texas growth corridor – Austin, San Antonio and the IH-35 connector.
Our firm is the result of a unique affiliation between KMD Realty Advisors, founded by partners and owners Bart Koontz, Red McCombs, and Marshall Davidson, our Managing Principal, and New York-based Studley, the premier international provider of corporate tenant representation services. Prior to organizing KMD, Davidson was a senior commercial real estate advisor with Cushman & Wakefield in Houston and had served as a Captain in the United States Marine Corps.
Our practice focuses on these specialized services:
- Office, industrial and retail tenant representations
- Representing users in corporate relocations (existing space, site selection, and build-to-suits)
- Advising clients on property sales and long-term ground leases and users on purchases or assemblages
- Structuring complex deals integrating long-term tenancies and built-to-suit facilities
- Providing comprehensive real estate services to energy, energy service, and transmission and transportation companies active in the South Texas Eagle Ford Shale play
When time is of the essence (as it has sometimes been for our energy services clients) we are able to marry our advisory services to the proven expertise of Koontz McCombs Development and Koontz McCombs Construction and provide turn-key solutions — site research and financial analysis and property acquisition by KMD Studley, design-build, build-to-suit building construction and delivery and management and leasing by Koontz McCombs — for office, retail and industrial requirements of major and minor scope.

Our Primary Marketplace
Austin, San Antonio and the IH-35 Connector:
We based our practice in Austin and San Antonio and the IH-35 corridor that connects them because high-growth Central Texas is internationally recognized as a great place to live and do business. The job and population growth pattern here has been compared to that of the high growth years of the Los Angeles/San Diego/IH-5 corridor.
We are Texans. We Know Texas (and beyond)
Most of KMD Studley’s professionals are native Texans and some of our families have been here for generations.
We know and understand Texas cities and towns and Texas people. We have been educated, lived and worked in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts, and California well as in Texas. Our varied experiences and professional backgrounds allow us to help our clients work through multi-faceted relocation issues including recommending legal, engineering and environmental resources, solving nuanced local and regional public policy issues, broadening development rights and securing tax incentives and, introducing appropriate capital and development partners.
