About NRG
- The Energy Focused Realty Group​ -
NRG was formed to provide individuals and companies who operate in the tertiary shale plays a single point of contact for each of their real estate transactions and facility needs throughout the United States.

We have spent years building relationships with corporate real estate directors, energy executives, local brokers, developers, general contractors, municipalities, and investors in each of the major basins.

These relationships allow us to effectively provide a variety of transaction options based on our client's needs.
We have represented clients on existing office and industrial facilities for lease, purchase, build to suit, unimproved land for development, and direct sales, subletting existing space, sale-leaseback transactions, and sale of land for commercial purposes.
The Team

Justin Dodd
President & Managing Broker

Justin founded NRG Realty Group in February of 2015 to fill the need of a professional commercial real estate company that specializes in the tertiary and secondary markets in the shale plays. Previously, he performed dual business development and brokerage roles for a private equity backed general contracting and brokerage company that focused on the energy sector. These experiences provided valuable knowledge of industrial construction techniques, financial models used to evaluate facility transactions, and a foundation of relationships to help NRG succeed. Justin has completed numerous facility acquisitions, dispositions, and build to suit projects for energy service clients across the U.S.
Justin is a lifelong Texan whose experience in the oilfield started from day one. His father worked in exploration and production and would often take him to visit well sites during his youth. These trips to rural locations started the passion for the oil and gas industry that Justin carries with him today. He is a graduate of Baylor University with a degree in Real Estate & Finance.
