    18 years

My practice is focused on commercial real estate transactions. I counsel clients in all segments of the real estate industry in Texas, including acquisitions, debt and equity financings, construction, development, leasing, unimproved land, apartments, condominiums, office buildings, shopping centers, warehouses, industrial developments and mixed-use projects.


My practice also includes land use regulation, deed restrictions, development agreements, platting disputes, re-zonings, variances, and economic development incentives, primarily in the Greater Houston area.


I am a native Houstonian and grateful to be practicing real estate law in my hometown.  Away from the office, I enjoy fly fishing and spending time with my family.

Class. Professional. Always a step ahead of you. Has an ability to make difficult transactions go smoothly. Worth every penny.
I have worked with many attorneys in the past 7 years. To put it lightly, not all attorneys are created equal. Anthony has a really unique ability to make difficult transactions look simple. I have worked with Anthony now on several real estate deals...I am here to tell you that he is my "go-to" guy, and has been for several years now. I would HIGHLY recommend Anthony to anyone in the real estate industry. He is worth every penny!

My #1 Go-To-Guy
I have been in the commercial real estate industry for over 35 years, covering banking, construction and development, with the last 19 years as a Broker, Principal and Manager in the Houston office of one of the largest commercial real estate firms in the world. During that time, I have dealt with countless attorneys on all sides of the equation. Most have been very good at what they do, technically. However, many are either constantly over-subscribed and/or not willing to grind out the midnight oil when time is of the essence, as it almost always is by the time a transaction gets down to the documentation stage. Tony, out guns them all. He is extremely pragmatic, responsive, fast and efficient, and has an inherent understanding of the difference between being technically correct and what is “deal-appropriate” in the art of getting to "yes". Understanding those differences and being able to provide solid counsel in the trenches, mark the difference between a valued business consultant, who also happens to have a mastery of real estate law versus a technically correct academic, who can materially impede the closing of a sound business agreement. Without reservation, I highly recommend Tony, and have long since lost count how many of my clients now look to Tony as their Go-To-Guy as well.

Accessible/Responsive/Well-versed/Thorough/Respected - Definitely the "Franchise Player" of my real estate adviser team
I have had the pleasure of working with Tony for the past two and a half years. At the time I was negotiating a complicated land acquisition/development deal and was dissatisfied with the lack of responsive, well-versed, or pro-active real estate legal counsel that I was experiencing at the time. I reached out to several well-respected contacts in the Houston real estate world for a referral. Tony was the only attorney recommended to me by multiple sources (and multiple disciplines in the real estate industry, including lenders, engineers, title companies, and surveyors). I met with Tony and was impressed by how genuinely personable he was (if he was a doctor I'd say he has excellent bedside manner) and his ability to get to the point of a matter without first giving you a 30 minute legal lesson. I retained him, the deal was successfully transacted, and Tony has been my real estate attorney ever since. His knowledge of not only the law (real estate or otherwise), but also his understanding of its relation to and impact on business and finance have been invaluable. Tony has "360 degree" vision - he has the ability to focus on the matter at hand, while also remaining cognizant of the "big picture". His outstanding reputation - built on integrity, loyalty, accessibility, and his ability to guide his client through any real estate transaction (regardless of size or difficulty) -is well deserved.

Tony Marre - True Leadership, Never a Passive Participant
Tony is the "go-to" real estate attorney. His name and reputation have made it around the brokerage community and now it seems like everyone uses Tony. I know people in my office use him all the time. His integrity, true leadership and loyalty explain his success. Whenever I call Tony he answers- even late at night when he has his children hanging all over him. I refer every deal I'm involved with to Tony knowing in full confidence that he will get the job done and treat my clients with respect, excellence, and deliver impeccable service. Tony is not a passive participant, he's going to naturally take the lead and will always work in your best interest. He is without a doubt the best young real estate attorney in Houston.
