Don Trapani is a local San Diegan and a graduate of UCSD.  Shortly after graduation, he began a career in Commercial Real Estate that has now spanned over 20 years; with the first several years being focused on brokerage assignments, primarily on the tenant side of the negotiation.  He has also been employed with Institutional Landlords, as an 'In-House' Leasing Executive; groups that include the likes of USAA Real Estate Company™ and Arden Realty™ (a GE Capital Real Estate™ company).  He was most recently a Vice President of Leasing for Arden Realty, Inc., for over 10 years, where he directed, coordinated and leased anywhere from 2.5 to 5 million square feet of properties, at any given time.  

During his career, Don has been directly involved with every aspect of the successful negotiation, review, coordination, and completion of more than 1,200 leasing transactions, spanning millions of square feet throughout San Diego County - deals in excess of hundreds of millions of dollars in lease value.  He has negotiated with Fortune 500 companies, governmental entities, universities, local business owners, and more.  He has been involved with negotiations for space in all types of properties, including: office, medical, retail, industrial, and biotech.  This business is his focus, and he isn't satisfied with mediocre results.    

As an In-House Leasing Executive for many years, Don gained invaluable hands-on experience with all aspects of the leasing process - from site selection to the property tour to proposals, to financial analysis, to lease negotiations, to move-in... and everything in between.  Working directly with, and paying attention to: Tenants, Real Estate Attorneys, Asset Managers, Property Managers, Building Engineers, Brokers, Architects, Construction Personnel and other property-related employees Don gained a perspective and a feel for all angles of the business that he now employs to advise and benefit you, the tenant... our client.

Don was recognized as GE's Capital Real Estate's Global Leasing Representative of the Year in 2011, an honor that reflects his high levels of Integrity, Expertise and Attention to Detail.  He has the experience, the knowledge and the insight to provide unrivaled advisory services, and a unique and well thought-out strategy to his clients, enabling them to make educated real estate decisions.
