Tim Bales, President

While going to college in Oklahoma City, Tim Bales got his real estate license and sold houses. He graduated from Southern Nazarene University in 1986. A year later he started his property tax consulting business.

As a compliment to the property tax business, in 1992 Tim started a commercial real estate research company, Data Dynamics. Most of Oklahoma City’s biggest commercial real estate brokerages and investors became his clients. In 1998 he sold the research company to The Journal Record, Oklahoma City’s business newspaper.

In 2003, he started a new commercial real estate research company, OKC Property Research. The company concentrated on producing leasing and vacancy reports for all the office buildings, retail, warehouses, and apartment complexes in the Oklahoma City metro area. In 2007 that research company was sold to Sperry Van Ness.

In 2007 Tim Bales changed the name of his property tax company to First Marc Commercial Group. Tim is a licensed Oklahoma real estate broker.
