John later created 180 Multifamily Capital and continued to grow their multifamily portfolio in the Dallas/Fort Worth and recently expanding into the Oklahoma City market.

John started his commercial real estate career in 2001, by joining a national brokerage firm as a multifamily specialist. While working as an agent, he closed on over 220 multifamily transactions valued at over $1Billion making him one of the top agents in Texas.

Over the past decade, he has spoken at many highly-publicized real estate events. John has also had the pleasure to speak on 'Money for Lunch', a nationally broadcast radio show, about his experiences working in commercial real estate. John was recognized in Texas Business Real Estate Magazine with a featured article about his expertise in the multifamily market. He was also was named as a "Power Broker" by Dallas Business Journal.

Lance Woodward- Principal

Lance Woodward has over 17 years of diverse real estate experience including residential and commercial sales, multifamily property management and property restoration and ownership. Born and raised in Fort Worth, Texas, Lance is a graduate of Texas Christian University with a Bachelor in Economics.

Soon after graduating from TCU Lance went to work at a full service real estate company ran by Michael Costanza; a legend in commercial real estate in Fort Worth. Here Lance was exposed to every facet of real estate including residential and commercial sales and leasing. It was here his two passions (commercial real estate and construction) collided. Soon Lance was buying and building income producing companies. This morphed into a successful construction company that he was a principal in until leaving in 2009 to focus solely on multifamily.

In 2009, Lance co-founded 180 Multifamily Management LLC with John Barker; one of the top multifamily brokers in the country. Lance is responsible for the overseeing the day to day operations of the properties. He also works closely with staff, vendors, state and local agencies to ensure maximum return for his clients. He has a proven track record in transforming distressed properties into strong cash flow investments for owners. He believes the best way for a property to be successful is setting expectations with tenants and to partner with them to create a community they are proud to call home. Today, 180 MF has under ownership and management, over 1,000 units in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex.
