Leasing is the cornerstone of a successful investment property management program. We are experienced in marketing rental property, and generating prospects to convert them into rent paying tenants. Tenant screening is performed in the pursuit of quality tenants.



A prerequisite of sound management is prompt and decisive action against any tenant that does not pay the rent due, or homeowner who fails to pay his or her assessment as required. At the end of each month our clients receive an easy to read statement showing all rents and other monies received, all disbursements made, and the ending cash balance along with copies of bank statements and any invoices paid. We provide accurate and timely accounting.


Maintenance & Repair

We use our own in-house service staff when available, and use insured and qualified service contractors when their services are needed. For in-house service staff, we bill for only the time spent performing work for each property, with no minimum time. We do not mark up or add a surcharge for any supplies or services to our clients. Each account has a predetermined authorization limit, and each client is contacted prior to us ordering work that exceeds this limit. We are on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to respond to emergencies. We strive to provide prompt courteous service while keeping our client's bottom line in mind.

Our History

William Bradfield

William Bradfield

Heiser Development’s real estate lineage dates back to 1911 with roots in both Dallas and Austin beginning with William Bradfield, a founder of Southern Methodist University.

Landon Bradfield

William’s son, Landon Bradfield, moved to Austin and entered into real estate with his father-in-law, Tom Walling, in the 1920's and, under the firm Walling-Bradfield-Brush, developed Pemberton Heights - a neighborhood of stately West Austin homes. Their development of Pemberton Heights ranked with two other Texas projects – Highland Park in Dallas and River Oaks in Houston. Other subdivisions developed by the partnership at the time included Wilshire Wood, Vance Park, and Sleepy Hollow on Lake Austin.

Tom Walling

Landon Bradfield and his son, Tom Bradfield, entered into a partnership together and were instrumental in the development of MoPac. Known at the time as Bradfield-Cummins Inc., the firm developed North and South MoPac as well as Barton Skyway. The office market transpired as one of the most dynamic in the state. Notable office projects include Barton Oaks Plaza I – V, Barton Skyway I – II, & Spyglass I – II; the company also developed the subdivisions of Highland Hills, and Foothills Parkway.

Tom Bradfield

Tom Bradfield and his son-in-law Robert Heiser joined up together in 1984.

Since Robert joined the company, Heiser Development has grown exponentially, and has developed numerous successful commercial and multi-family projects all over central Texas.
