August 28, 2003 - by Christine Perez | Dallas Business Journal | Insider. UPTOWN - Steve Lieberman, co-founder, president and longtime top producer at The Weitzman Group, is leaving the company to build a new retail real estate firm.
A perennial top-ranked broker on Dallas Business Journal's annual "Heavy Hitters" list, Lieberman declined to provide specifics about his LIEBERMAN: new endeavor, the details of which New venture are still being ironed out.
 "By resigning, I put myself in a position to fully explore and pursue other opportunities that are out there," Lieberman said. "Anyone who knows me well knows I don't do anything by myself. I enjoy the benefits of having a big, strong team. What you can count on is it will be something consistent with what I've always done: knowledge-driven, client-centered and very well-sponsored."
Lieberman, Herb Weitzman and Jerry Grubstein launched The Weitzman Group in 1989. Weitzman acquired his partners' interests in the firm out about four years ago and continues to serve as chairman and CEO.
