Newman was founded in February 2002, by Larry Wallis, who at the time was the Director of Development and Construction in the State of Oklahoma for Trammell Crow Company. In addition to pursuing commercial development and construction for Trammell Crow Company, Mr. Wallis also had a personal vision to pursue the development of a place to live and enjoy water sports with family and friends. Subsequently, Newman Development was formed and the vision became clearer as land was studied, isolated, negotiated, entitled and purchased.
Newman formed a partnership with other investors and the project commenced. The result was a beautiful wooded 133 acre development, consisting of a scenic 21 acre lake including 59 large wooded lots. Mr. Wallis and his family currently reside at the residential lake development in Edmond, Oklahoma, which is called Lakeside of Oakdale.
In 2008, Mr. Wallis felt a strong ambition to pursue Newman Development full-time and he launched a new chapter in his 25 year professional career in real estate. Newman Development specializes in Commercial Development, Development Management, Owner's Representation, and real estate related Consulting Services.
