Former UT star Vince Young partnering in real estate firm


Vince Young, an NFL veteran and former University of Texas football star, has opened a residential real estate brokerage focused on Central Texas.

Young is starting Vince Young Realty Partners along with Chad Mize, a real estate agent and co-founder of local startup Network Systems Resale, and Rick Orr, a real estate agent and founder of RealSavvy, a home-search platform, and TabbedOut, a mobile application to pay restaurant and bar bills with a smart phone.

Young will be involved in the realty firm’s business development, expansion strategy and charitable ventures. Mize will oversee most of the day-to-day operations and growth strategy.

“Through my deep ties to the local community, as well as my work with the Vince Young Foundation, Vince Young Steakhouse and the University of Texas, I’ve developed a unique network of buyers and sellers and I’m excited to embark on a new journey that will positively impact the city that has had such a profound impact on my personal and professional growth,” Young said in a written statement.

Vince Young Realty Partners is developing a charity program in partnership with the Vince Young Foundation that will enable its clients to give back to underserved communities in Central Texas. Details will be announced later this year, Young said.

Young, 33, helped lead the Texas Longhorns to an NCAA football national championship in the 2005 season. He went on to play six seasons in the National Football League.

Young last month said that he has hired an agent and is attempting return to playing professional football.
