About Us

OWNERSHIP, PROPERTY MANAGEMENT, Leasing, and Engineering

The Cameron Management concept is to house all functions of owning and managing a commercial office property under one umbrella: ownership, property management, leasing, and engineering. This concept produces valuable synergies, which in turn help contain the overall cost of running a building. Lower costs are passed on to the tenants through well-managed operational expenses. It is Cameron’s philosophy to maintain particularly close relationships with its tenants so that they feel valued and their needs are responded to quickly.

Tenant Testimonials:

Conner & Winters, LLP

 

Conner & Winters, LLP is excited about finally becoming a member of the Esperson family of tenants in its “Crown Jewel of Houston Office Buildings,” taking the 23rd floor of the Niels Esperson Building.

This has been a long, nine year wait for the right opportunity

says, Douglas M. Selwyn, Partner in the Conner & Winters law firm who negotiated the lease.

I have admired this building for many years. The history, elegance and charm of the Niels Esperson building makes this very attractive in contrast to the new glass, concrete and steel structures that appear cold and sterile. The president of our firm, while in Houston on business, toured the office prior to negotiating the lease, immediately saw the same qualities of the building, lease space and history, and supported our efforts to lease the 23rd Floor.

With the Houston office of Conner & Winters expanding, it most recently added Bill Worthington and Peter Arbour.
