In 1985, Judy Hatfield founded Equity in a time of financial chaos for Oklahomans. In the wake of Penn Square Bank's 1982 failure, she forged on to build a team of professionals that would become one of the best commercial real estate teams in the state, exercising professional ethics and maintaining a focus on the community.
Eric Fleske did not realize he was on the doorstep of a storied career and partnership when shadowing Judy Hatfield while a finance student at the University of Oklahoma. Eric became a Principal and Co-Owner of Equity Realty in 2006, where he remains dedicated to both his career and his community.
Mark Hyde II joined Equity in January 2006 as well. In recent years Mark has transitioned into more investment based transactions.
David Lide joined Equity in July 2015 after a 10 year partnership with Matrix Commercial Real Estate.
July 2015 the Equity ownership expanded to include Mark Hyde II and David Lide as partners in addition to existing partners, Judy Hatfield and Eric Fleske.
