Living and working by the credo, “Proud to be Australian, privileged to live in America and honored to call Texas home,” Bernard Uechtritz is the quintessential example of the American dream made real. Founder of Icon Global Group, Uechtritz is a highly regarded expert and advisor in the real estate industry, recognized for record-setting sales across the nation. His background and expertise include major estates within luxury residential markets, as well as complex commercial, industrial and ranch property across Southern California, Texas and internationally. His record-breaking sale of the W.T. Waggoner Ranch in 2016 listed at $725 million came by way of his worldwide media and sales campaign—a proven approach for which Uechtritz and the Icon team are renowned. Applying aggressive and creative marketing initiatives, they continue to set unmatched track records for selling, often with unsold properties where prior brokerage efforts have failed. Uechtritz attributes this ongoing success to his 30 years of worldwide experience, networking and media relations. In addition to W.T. Waggoner, Uechtritz has many other noteworthy sales campaigns to his name, ranging from the recent $12 million Fincastle estate to the $60 million Barefoot Ranch in East Texas. A successful businessman, clearly, but Uechtritz has also found personal success as a father of four grown children.
