Mark H. Kreditor
GTF Realty was founded by Mark H. Kreditor, MPM in 1981. Throughout the early 80's GTF Realty developed direct marketing programs to sell real estate. GTF Realty was responsible for close to 5 million pieces of real estate related direct mail annually, in an effort to market condominiums and homes in the Greater Dallas/Fort Worth area. This proved to be very effective and led GTF Realty to venture into leasing and property management in the mid 80's after the properties were eventually sold.
Since that time GTF Realty's business core has grown to service individual owners, developers and financial institutions holding residential rental properties. GTF Realty manages over $130 million worth of residential properties mostly held by individual owners. Their owners remain clients for years.
GTF Realty manages well over 1,500 rental properties in all areas of Dallas, Collin and Tarrant counties.Mark H. Kreditor, MPM
