DAUM COMMERCIAL’S SOUTH BAY OFFICE RELOCATES AFTER 40 YEARS; MOVES TO LARGER, NEWLY RENOVATED SPACE IN TORRANCE, CALIFORNIA TO ACCOMMODATE GROWTH AND ATTRACT TOP YOUNG TALENT
DAUM Commercial Real Estate Services, a leading provider of commercial real estate services including brokerage, tenant representation, consulting, leasing, investment sales, and property management, announces its South Bay office has relocated to a larger, newly renovated space in Torrance, California.
The move, which takes place after 40 years in an office around the corner from the new space, is intended to accommodate the firm’s recent and future growth in the Los Angeles market, according to Brad Levin, EVP, Principal, and South Bay Co-Branch Manager at DAUM Commercial.
“After four decades in our previous location, DAUM’s South Bay team has established a deep connection to the market and a robust network of trusted industry relationships in this area of Los Angeles,” says Levin. “These relationships have enabled us to expand our team of commercial real estate professionals, requiring more spacious offices with modern amenities. The relocation allows us to support this expansion while better serving our clients’ needs in the market now and moving forward.”
Brad Levin and Chuck Brill stepped into the Branch Management positions in July 2022. The team previously served within DAUM’s South Bay office as executive vice presidents and principals for more than 30 years. Given their substantial transaction experience and impressive track record in the region, the promotions are directly in line with the firm’s larger strategic expansion within the South Bay. In their new roles, the team will play an essential role in revitalizing the South Bay office through directing the charge on continued growth initiatives and mentorship of the next generation of DAUM.
“A company’s ongoing success stems from its strong internal culture and ability to inspire and build lasting business success,” says Levin. “DAUM embodies an entrepreneurial spirit for its agents. We understand the importance of sitting on both sides of the table and provide each employee with the right tools to build life-long success both professionally and personally.”
In addition, the relocation to upgraded space will assist DAUM in attracting high-caliber young talent and providing workspaces for several newly hired team members in the South Bay, Levin notes.
The South Bay office is pleased to announce the addition of three promising new team members as part of its strategic growth vision: Jack Stone, Associate; Allen De Leon, Intern; and Darion Tahmasebi, Intern.
Jack Stone previously served with DAUM in the Woodland Hills office for over four years. His experience includes representing a wide range of owners and tenants, from multi-billion-dollar corporations to family-owned Los Angeles–based companies. Prior to joining DAUM, Jack graduated from the University of Missouri with a degree in Business Management. Jack’s enthusiasm and superior track record place him as an ideal candidate to further the South Bay office growth trajectory.
Allen De Leon is a licensed real estate salesperson and actively pursuing a degree in Business Administration from the USC Marshall School of Business with an emphasis on Real Estate Finance. Prior to joining DAUM, Allen served with various real estate firms and gained vast sales experience throughout the Southern California market. Allen’s drive and real estate acumen will be valuable resources for the DAUM team.
Darion Tahmasebi is a licensed real estate salesperson and actively pursuing a degree in Business Administration from Santa Monica College. With a range of real estate and finance experience including a deep understanding of transactions, market analytics, and loan processing, Darion will be an exceptional asset to the DAUM team.
In their roles as interns at the South Bay office, Allen and Darion will support the brokerage team on transaction initiatives and participate in ongoing mentorship and educational training programs.
DAUM’s new South Bay office is located at Pacific Gateway, a 237,145 square-foot, 10-story office building originally built in 1981 and recently renovated. The property is situated at a high-profile address adjacent to the 405, 110, and 91 freeways.
“The location of our new offices is ideal for our team as it allows us to remain connected to our immediate South Bay industrial market, provides easy access to major roadways, and is centrally located between LAX and the Los Angeles and Long Beach Ports,” says Chuck Brill, EVP, Principal, and South Bay Co-Branch Manager at DAUM Commercial.
Pacific Gateway, which features a Gensler-designed lobby and exterior renovations, offers a new indoor/outdoor tenant amenity center with conference facilities, a smart market, lounge, and games. Additional common amenities include a mobile dry-cleaning service, car wash and detailing service, ample on-site parking, food trucks, dog run, and tenant fitness and health events.
The office suite where DAUM will be located was recently dramatically refurbished and features new modern design elements including polished concrete floors, exposed ceilings, and LED lighting. Overlooking the Goodyear Blimp staging area, the space is located on the eighth floor and offers a floor-to-ceiling glass line that allows for a sweeping panoramic views of Downtown Los Angeles, SOFI Stadium, and the L.A. and Long Beach ports.
“Younger brokers will undoubtedly be drawn to our new and trendy office environment with its impressive amenities and convenient location in the L.A. market,” notes Brill.
DAUM’s new South Bay office is located at 19191 Vermont Avenue, Suite 850, in Torrance, California.
