Harris has built his real estate business upon the commitment to add value for clients and investors, and the desire to improve the built environment. Since forming HMC in 2006, he has provided real estate development, brokerage, investment and management services to clients in the greater Charlotte, NC, area, with a focus on Concord and Cabarrus County.

He is focused on acquiring quality properties that provide attractive risk-adjusted returns. With his experience in commercial brokerage, development and management, he consistently adds value to the properties he and his partners invest in.
Through his brokerage and management business, Harris assists clients and investors with acquisition, disposition and leasing of commercial properties. Having a deep market knowledge of the greater Charlotte area, along with strong relationships across the brokerage and business community, Harris is able to provide clients with insight and advice on real estate matters. With four licensed brokers and two administrative assistants, the firm takes a team-oriented approach to servicing its clients' needs.
Harris redeveloped of The Old Creamery near downtown Concord (www.TheCreameryConcord.com) and leased it to full capacity. Re-purposed into office and retail space, this 40,000 square-foot former creamery and Coke bottling complex has attracted over 20 tenants and brought new life to the surrounding neighborhood. The project illustrates several real estate development principles that Harris embraces, including historic preservation, urban infill, and smart growth.
