Our Purpose

Experience, dedication, service.

Don White & Co. Realtors is a family owned and operated commercial real estate services company that has been operating primarily in the North Houston area for over 40 years. We work with buyers, sellers, tenants, landlords, investors, and others in the commercial real estate market on properties of many different types. Our primary focus has been on undeveloped land, industrial, and light office uses.

Together with our sister "D&KW" companies, we also acquire, manage, and develop investments for our own account. We take pride in our intention to build things and relationships that will stand the test of time.

Per current licensing requirements, this Consumer Protection Notice and completed Information about Brokerage Services form which are published by the Texas Real Estate Commission will provide additional information about our duties as licensed real estate brokers and agents in the State of Texas.

If there is anything we can do to be of service, please feel free to call or email at your convenience.

Our Places

We have been licensed brokers in Texas since 1963 and working in the Houston area since the early 1970s. Beginning in the mid-1980s we began to represent clients in the trucking business on commercial land purchases in the Aldine area and noticed the influence of a growing Houston Intercontinental Airport, availability of large acreage tracts, and access to multiple state and federally maintained highways, that made us believe the area was ripe for commercial growth and development.

Over the 35 years that have passed since completing our first deals in Aldine, we have represented clients in transactions across the north and east Houston area and continued to build our own portfolio of undeveloped land and investment properties. In 2007, we moved our offices onto Aldine Bender Road to be closer to our market, our customers, and our own investments.

While we are confident in our ability to represent clients across a variety of submarkets and property types, we also feel that there are likely only a handful of other brokers in Houston that know this area as well as we do. If you need expert commercial real estate advice or representation, especially in the Aldine / IAH submarket, please feel free to call or email at your convenience.

Our People

Don White
(July 8, 1934 - November 1, 2023)

Don was the founder and namesake of our company. He earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Geology from Texas A&M College in 1957 and, after graduation, served in the US Army Corps of Engineers, obtaining the rank of 1st Lieutenant. After a short period of time working as a field geologist for Atlantic Refining Co., and later selling new construction homes for Fox & Jacobs; he obtained a Texas real estate broker’s license in 1963 and began pursuing commercial transactions, focusing on syndication of acreage tracts in the emerging Fort Worth market. After moving to Houston in the mid-1970s to help his firm expand its presence, Don decided to begin working for his own account in 1981 when he formed Don White & Co. Realtors. Over the following 40-plus years he invested in, and brokered, deals across the country both large and small. He maintained a consistent focus on value-based land investment and held to the core principles of diligence and hard work that were the foundation of his success. Prior to his passing, Don lived in the Kingwood area with Kathleen, his wife of over 50 years, and enjoyed continuing to work on a daily basis with his sons and grandson in the business that he had built over the course of a 60-year career in commercial real estate brokerage and investment.
