A Full-Service Land Services Company


Passion. Pride. Standard setting


The management team at Property Research Partners have a vastly unique background in the Oil & Gas industry, but specifically in the land services niche.  The founder and Managing Partner, Justin Holliday, began his career as a field broker and eventually served in various in-house leadership roles for a number of companies, while also leading the charge in-the-field on multiple large-scale projects during the rise of horizontal drilling in unconventional reservoirs.  As his career was evolving, Justin created the predecessor to Property Research Partners, JH Mineral Acquisitions. Under the prior entity, and going back to early 2003, a great deal of success was encountered, but the greatest being the he was able to create relationships with the people that work with him still today. In late 2015 the transition was made to work under the Property Research name full-time and because of our wonderful people the arc of success has only been upward.  

Solely since the focus on expansion of the firm to a larger-scale model, Property Research performed due diligence project exceeding 2.7 Billion in value, completed due diligence on a Midstream asset acquisition valued at more than 50 Million dollars, as well as due diligence on a Salt Water disposal infrastructure acquisition that spanned 20 counties in West Texas and for a purchase price in the tens of millions.  The current roster of PRP clients includes privately funded upstream entities focused on building, developing asset base, established larger companies looking to exploit what they already own, as well midstream clients who are in acquisition or divestiture mode.
