Harold Pollman Inducted Into Housing Hall of Honor

The Texas Association of Builders hosted its prestigious Texas Housing Hall of Honor and Excellence in Leadership Dinner on November 12.  The late Harold Pollman, of Northwood Homes & Pollman Development, became the 19th name to appear on the elite Hall of Honor wall inside the Westin Austin Downtown hotel.

2015 TEXAS HOUSING HALL OF HONOR INDUCTEE: Harold Pollman, Northwood Homes & Pollman Development  – Dallas Builders Association – Dallas, Texas

Mr. Pollman was a remarkable leader whose legacy is one of unparalleled service to the housing industry, our state, our nation and the world.  Pollman’s companies Northwood Homes and Pollman Development helped establish Dallas as one of the nation’s most desirable places to own a home.  

As an attorney and a real estate finance expert, he was a consistent and vocal advocate for the housing industry for 57 years.  He regularly advised federal and state governmental committees on regulatory standards on home financing and construction standards.  For over 10 years, Mr. Pollman was a visiting lecturer at the Cox School of Business Graduate School at Southern Methodist University in Dallas.  He served as a delegate to President Gerald Ford’s Economic Pre-Summit meeting in Atlanta in 1975. 

In 1992, he began years of service as a guest lecturer at the Harvard Graduate School of Design.  Mr. Pollman’s influence extended beyond Texas and the United States as he participated in a U.S. – China cooperative arrangement where he taught courses on business management and free enterprise principles to Chinese government officials in Beijing and Shanghai.  In 2004, Harvard endowed a fellowship for postdoctoral students called the Pollman Research Fellowship in Real Estate Finance in his honor. 

Additionally, Mr. Pollman’s philanthropic efforts in his community reach beyond cultural barriers to feed, educate and advance the under privileged and elderly communities.
