OPC on the Move in Texas

2019-08-20T15:21:05-08:00August 20th, 2019|Newsletter|

Texas is one big state, which means that there is plenty of space for us to grow.

This week, OPC attended the Texas Housing Association’s Annual Conference and Tradeshow in Galveston. Our very own Chad Wakefield presented at the conference on Tenants’ Rights in the Conversion Process with Naomi Byrne.

We also have a new location to serve Houston Housing Authority and other Greater Houston area. OPC’s new Sugar Land location is open for business, supporting right of way acquisition and relocation programs in one of the nation’s fastest growing metropolitan areas.
