FOUNDERS LARRY CORSON AND BRIAN CRAMER
Corson Cramer Development brings with them nearly 50 combined years of experience in the residential and commercial real estate business. They have played leadership roles on nationally renowned projects such as Southlake Town Square, a mixed-use master-plan, and in nationally recognized companies like Newland, named 2019’s Developer of the Year. They have brought high-level thoughtful planning, experienced execution and financial discipline to Corson Cramer Development. Yet it is their ability to think strategically and execute tactically that often sets them apart.
As Co-Founder and Managing Director, Larry Corson is integral in strategy, acquisition, planning, financing, and capital market/investor management. Prior to starting Corson Cramer Development, Larry was President of Wilbow Corporation, a privately owned residential land development company with more than 30 residential communities across Dallas-Fort Worth and Houston. Throughout his career, Larry has held leadership positions with Cooper & Company, Crescent Resources, Hunt Realty Investments, Terrabrook and Westbrook Partners. He is active in the Urban Land Institute, both locally and nationally. He earned an MBA from Columbia University and a Bachelor of Science in Accounting from High Point University.
The benefit of being a smaller, more agile team is that we are able to assess opportunities quickly and move decisively. Our partners work with the decision makers, us. There is no middleman.

We have sat on both sides of the table looking at land… as the capital investor and as the developer. Having invested in and managed real estate portfolios for institutional capital provides us with a unique perspective on the financial complexities of every deal.
