Tricia Ward Holloway was born and raised in Baltimore, MD. She graduated from the Garrison Forest School and then the University of Maryland, College Park with a Bachelor of Science Degree (Double majoring in Accounting & Finance). While attending the University of Maryland, Tricia was a member of the National Championship women’s lacrosse team. Additionally, she was a member of the Kappa Delta sorority.
Tricia began her career in Real Estate, shortly after graduation, accepting a position at CB Richard Ellis in Bethesda, Maryland. There she specialized in marketing and leasing of office space and flex properties. She was a member of a successful team that marketed over 400,000 SF of class “A” office properties. With her eye on bigger and better markets, Tricia moved to CB Richard Ellis’ New York City office on Lexington Avenue. There she became proficient as an associate specializing in tenant representation. Opportunity knocked on her door once again and she decided to focus on the sell side and began working for Massey Knakal Realty Services, selling small to mid-sized buildings in Chelsea and the West Village of Manhattan.
In 2003 Tricia moved to Florida to work with her father James Ward in real estate development. She formed Ward Holder Real Estate; now known as Ward Real Estate, LLC. Since the inception of Ward Real Estate, LLC, Tricia has participated in deals worth over $65 million. In 2005 Tricia was awarded by the Realtors Commercial Society of Palm Beach County two of their most prestigious awards: she was a recipient of Deal Maker Awards Commercial Rookie of the Year and Land Deal of the Year.
Tricia loves real estate, it is her passion. She has participated in the entitlement, development and leasing of the Village Place Shopping Center and the Village Green Center in Wellington Florida and also heads the leasing and management for the Roland Park Shopping Center in Baltimore, Maryland. Since 2003 Tricia has had an active role in many other development deals from Palm Beach to Indian River Counties which includes entitling over 800 homes and over 500 acres of land. Tricia is extremely active outside of the office as she is a contributing member to several worthy organizations (see list below). Tricia enjoys traveling; one of her favorite spots is Vail, CO. She also enjoys practicing yoga and attending spin classes in her free time.
In addition to her work at Ward Real Estate, as of January 2019, Tricia is also a new partner at Engel & Volkers Palm Beach. You can read more about this on our news page.
