The Bates & Myers Company has concentrated on the industrial markets along the Stemmons Corridor. The areas have transformed into Design District showrooms, live-work, flex, and retail properties. The industrial market is still changing daily as users move away from distribution and warehouse only. The company’s goal is to have as much knowledge and expertise regarding these properties, along with tracking all of the tenants and owners in the Stemmons Corridor and various surrounding areas.

Floyd has also served on various boards and community involvement, such as the Waxahachie School Board, Moral Courage Scholarship Fund, and the North Texas Association of Realtors Board of Trustees, even though, with all of these, his heartbeat is the Bates & Myers Company, especially, the friends he has made and the relationships that have been forged.

He still believes and lives by his favorite Scripture, “The integrity of the upright will guide them” – Proverbs 11:3.
