John Smith’s primary focus is Tenant Representation in the greater San Diego/Northern Baja California border areas of South San Diego County and extending into Tijuana, Tecate, Rosarito Beach and Mexicali on the Mexico side. His bilingual skills have also served his clients well on numerous assignments in the Bajio region of central Mexico.
He participated in marketing for sale a Mexico-based multimarket portfolio of mixed use development sites. In addition, he has also been involved in the sale of a 13-property retail portfolio for Kimco in north central Mexico, as well as the separate sale of regional and power centers for PREI and Hines in the cities of Hermosillo, Tijuana and Mexico City.
Other substantial assignments have included assisting in the establishment of clients’ major distribution centers in Atlanta and Los Angeles.
Our team focuses on the Northern Baja and South County San Diego markets commonly known as the “CaliBaja” region. We are dedicated to ensuring smooth and efficient operation of cross-border business as well as localized success in both markets.
We perceive this area as a unified region, and so does the prominent multinational and Fortune 500 manufacturing and distribution community. It’s important to understand that the world extends beyond borders, and we actively operate on both sides.
We have sold over 1000 acres of industrial land to users and developers, participated in the sale of 45 Buildings totaling in excess of 7.0M SF and since 2020 have leased over 3.0M SF.
This experience translates to an unparalleled depth of knowledge of the Northern Baja/San Diego Super Region and what it takes to succeed in the realm of real estate in this area.
