"In our market, you have to be able to do everything. In Houston or Dallas you can specialize, but here, you have to be able to multitask."
"I think you have to want to desire to have the city grow if you are going to be in [the real estate] business."
"If you're going to be successful, you have to have pride in the community. Growing up here...I can look around and feel the pride of where we've come from."
"What we have going for us now is a great leadership between the city, the county and the school--that synergy is all pulling the wagon together."

Bland Cromwell has worked in Waco real estate since 1977 and is one of the 11th Street partners mentioned on "Downtown Depot." He was the national top Commercial Producer for Coldwell Banker in 2014. He has achieved Top 5 status six times, topping the charts twice, despite competing with markets such as Los Angeles and Salt Lake City.
