Austin, TX (PRWEB) February 11, 2013
Larry Heimer, Managing Principal for Bury+Partners’ San Antonio office, was named the 15th annual recipient of the Philip M. Barshop Founder’s Award. This prestigious award was presented in front of a crowd of nearly 400 people at an event hosted by the Real Estate Council of San Antonio.
This award is given every year to honor the late Philip Barshop, who is remembered for his lasting impact on the San Antonio real estate industry. It is meant to recognize people “who carry forward Phil’s legacy of leadership, hard work, community involvement, and advocacy for the real estate industry.” Barshop was co-founder of the La Quinta Inns & Suites chain and a founder of the Real Estate Council of San Antonio.
“It's an honor to be a part of this group,” Heimer said. “Early in my career I had the opportunity to work with Philip (Barshop). He was really the first client that surprised me about how much he loved the City. He was so involved in the community and he knew what it would take to build the City into what it is today.”
Larry has been with Bury+Partners for 16 years and has more than 35 years of engineering experience. He served as president of RECSA in 2007 and has been involved in a number of other industry and civic organizations, including the Texas Society of Professional Engineers and the Greater San Antonio Chamber of Commerce.
Bury+Partners has a wide portfolio of projects in the real estate industry, and Larry has contributed to creating innovative, sustainable, and cost effective solutions. According to Moore, who introduced Heimer at the event, “He’s done everything possible to deserve the award. He’s involved in the community. He’s a mentor to the young guys. He’s always involved and someone we can always depend on.”
