CONROE, Texas (August 22, 2023) - Woodforest National Bank® (Woodforest) has recently leased the third floor of its new bank building in downtown Conroe to Dean & Draper Montgomery County.

Located at 400 West Davis, the insurance agency now occupies 10,720 square feet of office space of Woodforest’s building, encompassing the third floor of the three-story, Class-A, 32,800-square-foot mixed-use business center and bank branch, which opened in May of 2022.

Dean & Draper, which acquired Soules Insurance Agency in 2013, moved from its previous location at 701 San Jacinto St., where it officed for the last fifty years.

“The legacy of Soules has been to serve our community and take care of people,” said Warner Phelps, Director of Marketing for Dean & Draper. “While the previous location is near and dear to our hearts, after 50 years there, we were looking for an upgrade to true Class A office space. We wanted our new location to represent who we strive to be professionally while positively reflecting the carriers we represent. In our location search and internal discussions, we knew we wanted to stay in Conroe. The new Woodforest building made a lot of sense as a centrally located, prominently visible office located conveniently to multiple major Conroe thoroughfares. Our ability to customize our professional appearance while partnering with our preferred banking provider was too good to pass up.”

Phelps continued, “We expect to grow significantly as our community continues to grow. We are now able to stay centrally located downtown with room for future growth in our current office space. We are thrilled to be here and excited to be associated with the prestigious Woodforest brand.”

Jay Dreibelbis, President and CEO of Woodforest National Bank said, “We welcome Dean & Draper as the newest tenant in our flagship building. They share our passion and support for the revitalization of downtown Conroe. We are like-minded in our dedication to the local community and our customers. We are pleased to accommodate their expansion needs within our beautiful new bank building.”

Jeff Beard, Managing Director of SVN | J. Beard Real Estate – Greater Houston, whose firm represented the lease, added, “The new Woodforest building offers an ideal location with Class A, mixed-use office and retail space. The recent lease by Dean & Draper speaks to the long-term commitments from both parties, which is great for Conroe. We look forward to future leases of the space currently available on portions of the first and second floor.”

Woodforest occupies 3,993 square feet of the building. The bank’s full-service retail branch anchors the first floor, and the second floor houses its Commercial Banking Team.
