Tribek Properties formed in 1994. Working together at the time for Childress Klein Properties, Mr. Hamilton and Mr. Bortz  used the valuable experience they had gained from working at one of the most respected names in real estate to start a company of their own. Though grateful for the time they had spent at Childress Klein, they longed to launch their own business, one that was small but nimble enough to handle the growing real estate development demands of the Southeast.

From the very beginning Tribek Properties focused on retail development. The partners’ foresight was rewarded with a local boom in the Southeast. Today, across the region, the company has developed more than 95 retail and shopping center developments totaling 3.5 million square feet that is currently valued at approximately $470 million.
