San Ramon, CA, December 12, 2023 — Synergy Global Housing (Synergy), a leader in serviced accommodation program management, announced today, its expansion into the state of Texas, marking a significant step in the company’s strategic growth initiatives. With operations headquartered in Houston, Synergy aims to cater to the furnished housing needs of its clients in four pivotal cities: Houston, Austin, Dallas and San Antonio.

The company’s entrance into Texas will continue Synergy’s boots-on-the-ground approach, which has been successfully replicated in other highly requested growth markets.

“This expansion into Texas is a testament to our commitment to meet the evolving needs of our clients,” expressed Debra Christopher, President of Synergy. “Synergy has had a substantial East and West Coast presence in the United States. Now, with an operations team based in Texas, we will be able to better serve our clients’ temporary accommodation needs in the Central part of the country.”

The market will be overseen by Synergy’s Director of Client Services, Richard Franco, who is based in Houston and brings over 25 years of corporate housing leadership experience to the role, particularly in the South-Central US.

“I’m thrilled to lead our operations here in Texas,” said Richard Franco. “The region’s potential, coupled with Synergy’s commitment to excellence, presents an incredible opportunity to establish a dynamic and substantive presence. We have had great support from our local partners in Texas and expect to build on our strong working relationship together.”

Synergy has been actively hiring local market personnel and will begin accepting reservations beginning January 2, 2024.
