Transitioning to Concord Companies enables us to represent and operate all of our commercial real estate interests and experience under one, unified brand.

The Concord Companies brand will be integrated into every facet of our commercial real estate interests as we continue to expand into new markets and this process is well underway. With recent expansion into Baton Rouge and Knoxville, Concord now operates in Mississippi, Louisiana, Florida, Tennessee and Ohio.”

Re-arranging the deck chairs on the Titanic!

Next step, go public with a real estate investment trust like Leland Speed did years ago. Not saying this is a bad thing, but a logical move to grow exponentially.

They are based in Ridgeland where there are fewer palms to grease to get things done. In Jackson and Hinds County they would need a fulltime palm greaser, err, permit application/inspector appeasement person.

Attn 10:39 Going public in essence sells these “Jackson Properties” to unknowing investors and basically gives these three property owners an expedient way to drop these decreasing in value properties. Pretty smart, if it works!!!!!

11:32 AM, too late! Jackson, MS is now notorious across the nation for having no water and all the crime!

Duckworth Realty used to own the WorldCom buildings in Clinton. Sometime around 2016 they sold it, but I don't remember who they sold it to. Someone out of state.

If Duckworth has any brains, Jackson is the place to be 10 -20 years down the road. People are moving back to cities all over the country. Missippi is just way behind as usual. Don’t worry Jackson will rise again.

Attn 2:57 PM Your logic is about as good as your spelling of Mississippi.

2:57 You clearly have been into the "medical" marijuana today. There may be a number of cities that will "rise again," but Jackson, MS is surely not one of them. When the culture in control won't acknowledge any of the current problems, why would they endeavor to "rise again" from an already good place? No, in fact, as Jackson spirals downward, they see that AS getting better.

You have to understand the culture.......

It's just a renaming of what's already there. Way to get in the news without creating any news.

Kudos to them.
They have been successful and we need more of exactly that in Jackson metro.
I'm proud of them.

It’s pronounced Miss-is-pi!

One thing for sure is that West and South Jackson will never experience gentrification.

Why is this a big deal? Is this a paid post? They are just three guys and some back office accounting ladies like a 1000 other small developers in the metro and state. Must be someone’s cousin.

2:57 is actually just stating what has transpired for hundreds of years across this Nation.
Sadly, we have politicians who can't seem to learn from the successes and failures of those outside our borders, so it may take a bit longer,but the drive from suburbia gets tiresome. The often speculative/rushed construction is on " the cheap" and ages badly. You can't "relocate" a capitol city. You can't duplicate the quality of the construction.
Better to get on board early with renovation and preservation and good governance instead of sabotaging progress.
I suspect the misspelling in 2:57's comment was likely intentional...it's how it comes out of the bubba boys mouths.

7:51 AM, don't forget that Jackson boasts one of the most historic water systems, a time capsule dating back to 1820! And we are one of the few cities left with open dueling to settle any quarrels.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.
