Nathan Vasseur Groom
Nathan Vasseur was born and raised in the city of Fort Worth. Growing up, his first love was baseball ⚾️ and his first coach was his dad Gary. He also played basketball and golf. Nathan’s passion for baseball continued as he played first base at Paschal High School. After graduating he moved to Austin and attended and graduated from the University of Texas (Hook ’em!). He briefly lived in San Diego and attended a semester at San Diego State University with his close friend, Geoff Hanson.
After college Nathan joined his father in the commercial real estate business and together they manage Vasseur Commercial Real Estate. Outside of work, Nathan enjoys golfing, cycling, hiking, movies 🎥 and staying active. Nathan and Hallie hit it off almost immediately after first meeting at a dog park 🐶 almost 4 ½ years ago. Nathan considers himself extremely lucky to have her in his life and has quickly learned the art of just keeping his mouth shut most of the time (haha). He rests easy knowing that, with her by his side, the future is bright. 😎

Lee Owen grew up in Dallas, Texas and is the nephew of Suzanne Vasseur, making him Nathan’s favorite cousin, of course! After graduating in 2009 from TCU (Go Frogs! 🐸), Lee worked and traveled across the western states where he met his wife, Blair Owen.
