Timing and location are everything in real estate. The real estate professionals of Jim Sowell Construction Company utilize their talent for timing in all their acquisitions, sales and development decisions. This ability has allowed the company not only to weather the seasons of land development trends, but also to prosper and grow throughout the last four decades.
Sowell & Co. Real Estate activities have included most product types since its inception in 1972. The experiences through those years have refined Sowell & Co.’s primary focus to development land. Current projects vary in uses among retail parcels, industrial sites, multifamily tracts and single-family land.

|Grand LakesThis 434-acre project is located in the heart of the Dallas/Ft. Worth metroplex in Grand Prairie, Texas. The project has over 1.5 miles of frontage on Interstate 30, but was in the flood plain and had no legal access. Sowell & Co. used its experience in land development to work with many local, state, and federal agencies to create the 230-acre Grand Lakes Business Park. The project required moving 2,500,000 cubic yards of dirt, which exposed a valuable aggregate deposit that offset the cost of moving the dirt. Working with local, state and federal transportation agencies, Sowell & Co. built the first frontage road on Interstate 30 in Grand Prairie. The development has added over $165 million in new development to Grand Prairie.

|Hunter Ferrell PropertiesWith its considerable real estate experience, Sowell & Co. quickly recognized the opportunity in the building materials industry presented by the creation of Hunter Ferrell Properties. This specialized real estate company has the expertise to locate and develop properties with marketable sand and gravel reserves, which are vital to the construction industry. To move product most efficiently and to maximize return, Hunter Ferrell concentrates only on those properties within close range of the most active construction areas, and aggressively markets its products through various sales channels. After the sand and gravel reserves are harvested, another profitable opportunity affords itself. The properties are then reclaimed and made available for sale or development. Raw land can hold valuable resources for building projects. Here, sand and gravel are harvested from one of the company’s sites in Denton County, Texas, for sale to a construction company.
