Ed Del Beccaro’s career in commercial real estate spans more than 40 years in the Bay Area.

WALNUT CREEK, CA—TRI Commercial/CORFAC International has increased its roster by nearly 25% in the last year, adding new brokers in the East Bay, San Francisco and Roseville. And, just one year after joining TRI as executive vice president and manager of the company’s East Bay offices, veteran Edward Del Beccaro’s recruiting efforts have paid off, with his subsequent promotion to San Francisco Bay Area regional manager.

“Ed is a dynamic leader with a clear vision for the future of TRI that aligns perfectly with our mission and strategic initiatives. His appointment to oversee Bay Area operations is a reflection of our ongoing commitment to provide great service to our brokers and empower talent throughout the company,” said Charles A. Wall, TRI chairman.

In his new position, he will have direct responsibility for the management and recruitment of the San Francisco office as well including recruiting a day-to-day brokerage manager for that office.

“We are focused on recruiting dynamic brokers, a brokerage manager for our San Francisco office and hiring young talent,” Del Beccaro tells GlobeSt.com. “We have a very defined training program that includes milestones and accountability.”

When he joined TRI, Del Beccaro was tasked with a major revitalization of the East Bay operations, to lead recruitment efforts and handle day-to-day operations. His recruitment efforts have already brought some well-known faces in the brokerage community to TRI.

“Ongoing efforts to grow a stronger more competitive regional presence require intention and purpose. Ed has the knowledge and experience to take TRI to the next level. He shares our belief that by offering competitive splits and building a sophisticated platform, we empower our brokers to achieve their business goals,” said TRI president Tom Martindale.

Del Beccaro’s career in commercial real estate spans more than 40 years in the Bay Area. He began at Grubb & Ellis in 1977 and ran his own development company for nine years before returning to brokerage in 1992. Previously, he served as East Bay manager at Colliers, Grubb & Ellis and most recently Transwestern, where he built the East Bay and San Jose offices to more than 40 brokers, property management and staff.

“My goal in this new position is to create a San Francisco Bay Area and Northern California regional real estate services powerhouse,” Del Beccaro tells GlobeSt.com. “The company will be a full-service real estate company that will include class-A brokerage, property management, project management and consulting services lines. My goal is to disrupt the old TRI model to embrace cutting-edge marketing tools in order to provide our clients the sophisticated services they deserve. We are not a Wall Street firm. Our goal is to create  a real estate culture of innovation, excellence and entrepreneurship.”

Del Beccaro’s capabilities include brokerage operations management, property management, development, entitlements and consulting.

TRI Commercial’s Cultural Shift and Upgraded Platform Begin to Pay Off 

(June 17, 2019 – SAN FRANCISCO) – TRI Commercial/CORFAC International increased its roster by nearly 25 percent over the last six months, adding 12 brokers in the East Bay and eight in the Sacramento region. The company, one of Northern California’s top independent commercial real estate brokerages, developed a strategic plan in early 2018 to transform its deep local roots into a stronger more competitive regional presence.

UPDATE: Note since the original article ran in June, three additional agents have been hired, including Office Associate Dominic Borrecco in Roseville, Office Associate Matt Dumanovsky in San Francisco, and Industrial Associate Keith Serne in Walnut Creek.

If as they say, “the proof is in the pudding,” then 2019 is proving that TRI Commercial is on the right track. It’s been a banner year so far, with the addition of 20 new agents, including several notable industry veterans. Edward F. Del Beccaro and Ed Benoit, TRI regional managers in the East Bay and Sacramento/Roseville respectively, say the company is focusing on key hires and empowering existing talent companywide — an effort that’s yielding quantifiable results.

“We offer competitive splits, exceptional support services and a sophisticated platform. Brokers are quickly noticing that TRI is a great place to pursue their business goals,” said Benoit.  Over the last couple of years, TRI leadership has invested in a C-level effort to create a more sophisticated brokerage platform. The company developed a strategic plan in early 2018 to enhance its deep local roots by leaning into our strengths and capitalizing on the company’s unique capabilities.

The concept is deceptively simple – put agents in the driver’s seat and equip them to succeed. We empower brokers to be agile, independent and collaborative. It’s a uniquely entrepreneurial approach we’ve refined over more than four decades as one of Northern California’s top independent commercial real estate companies.

In Walnut Creek, the robust growth quickly exceeded the capacity of their existing office space. To accommodate the influx of new brokers, they recently moved into a beautifully appointed new suite of offices and collaborative workspaces there.  “When we host our grand opening this summer, we’ll celebrate not only our new space, but also the tremendous vision and diligence of our team as they elevate TRI to new levels of success,” said Edward F. Del Beccaro, TRI executive vice president and East Bay regional director.

Del Beccaro, who’s leading the charge in the East Bay, recruited some well-known faces in the brokerage community.  Most recently, Senior Directors Robin Newton and Patric Davis joined the firm from Colliers International in Pleasanton. Newton and Davis each have more than 30 years of retail experience representing landlords, tenants, and investors. Managing Directors Sonny O’Drobinak and John Sechser joined late last year, and Senior Director Marilyn Hansen moved to the firm last month.  

In Roseville/Sacramento, Benoit and recently promoted Brokerage Manager Cole Sweatt welcomed veteran brokers Bryan Wirt as senior director of retail, and Rodney Ballinger as vice president of multifamily investments, among the year’s bumper crop of new agents.

Rounding out the team of new recruits in Roseville/Sacramento are retail associate’s John Hynes and Kannon Kuhn, land and investments associate Abdul Ejaz, investment advisor Steve Lefler, senior industrial associate Ross Relles, land and investments associate Ben Goldman and in Walnut Creek, Senior Director Matt Hatfield, senior associates Kate Wright and Paul O’Drobinak and associates Jaimi Trunick, Ron Willet, Clayton Temple, and Ted Bard.

Over 100 agents, property managers, and admin personnel turned out last week for our companywide meeting at the Falls Event Center in Roseville.

Exciting developments were highlighted during President Thomas Martindale’s opening remarks, including the addition of the new East Bay Regional Team, headed by Edward Del Beccaro, and the introduction of new Brand Standards for use going forward.  Mr. Martindale also applauded managerial recruitment efforts as headcounts are up 20% from last year.  Samples of our spiffy marketing pieces were displayed for all to admire and Dina Gouveia gave an impressive presentation on TRI’s recently-acquired data-analytic capabilities, which will significantly enhance agents’ ability to attract and retain business relationships.

Additionally, keynote speaker Jeremiah Miller shared a touching, motivational story about the importance of reaching out to “allies” who can help achieve seemingly insurmountable goals in life – as opposed to the much-hyped “lone wolf” mentality that runs rampant in our individualistic, ambitious society. 

Finally, brokerage specialty workshops were held to foster better collaboration and relationship building across TRI’s three regions in a concentrated effort to identify in-house cross-referral opportunities.

We have received tremendous feedback thus far on hosting a fun, collaborative TRI.be event, and here’s to hoping our companywide meeting served to foster not only additional revenue but lasting relationships as well.

The Sacramento market continues to see Bay Area investors looking for quality properties with sensible returns, and TRI Commercial/CORFAC looks to capitalize on that activity with a recent management restructure.

By Lisa Brown | May 20, 2019 at 04:00 AM

SACRAMENTO—Industry veteran Ed Benoit has been in the trenches for many years as a broker and manager of the Sacramento office of TRI Commercial/CORFAC International. He’s now stepping away from day-to-day brokerage management to focus on the firm’s strategic priorities as Roseville/Sacramento regional manager. This represents a strategic repositioning effort for TRI in the Sacramento region, he says.

“The company is committed to fully developing the potential of brokers, while providing a sophisticated platform to support maximum performance,” says Benoit. “We are taking steps to be more agile as the industry evolves and prepare ourselves to make the most of any economic change on the horizon.”

In response, Cole Sweatt, vice president of TRI Commercial/CORFAC International, has been promoted to brokerage manager of the company’s Roseville and Sacramento offices. Sweatt and co-manager Rick Phillips will partner with Benoit.

Sweatt has spent nearly two decades in commercial real estate. In this new position, he plans to increase TRI participation in the CORFAC International network, encourage and incentivize cross-discipline deals, work with individual agents to set performance goals and increase revenue, mentor new brokers, and develop a companywide “boot camp” for all new recruits.

In this exclusive, Sweatt and Benoit discuss the new management team, strategic priorities, broker training, what’s on the horizon for the Sacramento market and the latest research trends.

GlobeSt.com: How does your joint leadership benefit the company?

Sweatt: Our leadership team has a deep bench. We each have 20 years or more in the industry with Ed Benoit and Rick Phillips having been with TRI since the beginning in Roseville. Going forward, Benoit will focus on long-term strategic goals, and Rick and I assume responsibility for day-to-day operations. With our range of experience, we’re well positioned to understand and balance the concerns of brokers in various disciplines. This multi-focal perspective also prepares us to maximize the company’s market position regardless of any economic fluctuations.

GlobeSt.com: How do you balance the competing concerns of day-to-day management with strategic priorities?

Benoit: We focus on intentionally incorporating the strategic priorities of the company in our daily management. Sharing management responsibilities as a team, we recognize collaboration and attention to detail as critical functions. Serving the needs of our brokers is our number one priority.

GlobeSt.com: Moving forward, what are the goals for the office? 

Benoit: Our unwavering goal is to equip our clients for success by delivering critical market information. We focus on representing the people and businesses in our local communities, while other brokerage platforms prioritize corporate users in the market. We balance our local roots with global reach, leveraging our connections in the CORFAC network to provide national/international coverage for our clients.

GlobeSt.com: How do you incorporate new talent? What type of training does TRI provide for rookies?

Sweatt: As a company, we are always in recruitment discussions with seasoned brokers, but we’re also building an emphasis on growing brokers organically, i.e., hiring and training young agents to fit our entrepreneurial model. Drawing from our experience and the experience of our CORFAC affiliates, we developed our own brokerage “boot camp” and training guidelines. The goal was to create a more detail-oriented collaborative training program than many of the larger brokerage houses provide.

GlobeSt.com: What’s on the horizon for the Sacramento region? Do you foresee any impending downturn?

Sweatt: The Sacramento market has long been a hub for companies seeking affordable, quality commercial real estate and an attractive housing market at all price points. Currently, inventory is down across all disciplines. Medical office space has dominated most of the recent construction. On the investment side, we’ve seen an increase in Bay Area investors looking for quality properties with sensible returns. This influx has driven our cap rates down and building prices up. Beyond that, being in the capital of California with an ever-growing population has led to the increased presence of state government in our region, which will continue into the foreseeable future.

GlobeSt.com: What types of trends are you seeing in the market as of first quarter?

Sweatt: Both the rising costs of housing and doing business in the Bay Area are causing a net migration to the East Bay and Sacramento/Roseville area. There are over 6,000 workers who commute each year into the San Francisco and Oakland markets from the Sacramento area. And, more than 7,000 commute to the Peninsula and Silicon Valley.

The Sac office market continues to move forward in 2019 and we anticipate the strong activity to continue, as Bay Area firms continue to look to the region as a viable option that offers a strong talent pool for hiring.

Investors also will continue to focus on the region as they seek quality real estate options with better returns on investment. Overall, Northern California continues to be a dynamic job generator and unemployment for the greater Sacramento region stood at a healthy 4.1% at the end of February.

At the start of first quarter 2019, the Sacramento industrial market sat at a record low vacancy rate of 4.13% due to high demand for logistical centers. There is approximately 900,000 square feet less than a year prior, and over 4.3 million square feet less than 24 months ago. This is due to leasing activity remaining high, as net absorption remains positive for the 15th consecutive quarter.

CRE Veteran Cole Sweatt Will Oversee Daily Operations

Sweatt and co-manager Rick Phillips, CCIM, will partner with Ed Benoit, CCIM, who’s stepping away from day-to-day brokerage management to focus on TRI’s strategic priorities as Roseville/Sacramento Regional Manager.

Through his experience with various management styles he’s developed a keen perspective on the tools and tactics that empower success in today’s fast-changing environment.

By Ben van der Meer  – Staff Writer, Sacramento Business Journal

Twenty years in commercial real estate have led Cole Sweatt to a new role as brokerage manager at TRI Commercial/CORFAC International’s Roseville and Sacramento offices. He discussed the new job and what he hopes to accomplish.

What attracted you to take this role?

I’ve been in this industry for about 20 years, and I like helping people. I like the attraction of working day to day with brokers, and I’m pretty well-versed in working with them.

What’s the landscape of the market as you come in?

We deal with more day-to-day users of brick and mortar. The big firms deal with the big corporate accounts. My concern is working with the local tenants and landlords. The outlook for the next few years is strong, as evidenced by how housing has picked up. We’re starting to see, finally, relocation from the Bay Area.

What is the issue that’s holding this market back, if any?

People don’t realize what Sacramento has to offer. There’s very affordable housing compared to the Bay Area, and even very affordable executive housing. We’re close to the Bay Area. We don’t quite have the concentration of universities as you see there, but beyond that, there’s lots of talent here to fill positions of need for firms.

What is on your to-do list?

Obviously, help my brokers on the day-to-day stuff. Also, we want to grow our footprint in the market and expand our presence with CORFAC. I also want to emphasize cross-discipline between offices and sectors, set performance goals for each broker and establish a boot camp for new brokers coming aboard.

In the different commercial real estate sectors, what do you see as hot right now?

For us, it’s medical, housing and government driven. Housing especially is driven by the medical industry, such as the new headquarters for Adventist Health in Roseville and new construction of surgery centers.

What would you want people in your industry to know about you?

I’m very fair, I get along with people and I have a good sense of how different managers run offices. I think we can offer more comprehensive training and grow organically.

Marilyn Hansen Joins TRI Commercial/CORFAC International in Walnut Creek

WALNUT CREEK (APRIL 23, 2019) – Longtime commercial real estate advisor Marilyn Hansen has joined TRI Commercial/CORFAC International in Walnut Creek as Senior Director. With more than 30 years’ experience in investment and leasing advisory, she will primarily focus on retail and investment brokerage by providing location intelligence, strategic planning, property acquisition and disposition for clients.

“We are pleased to welcome Marilyn to our East Bay office. With her considerable tenure in the industry, she strengthens our continuing efforts to provide a sophisticated platform to serve clients in the East Bay,” TRI Executive Vice President and East Bay Regional Manager Edward Del Beccaro said.

Despite reports of an impending market slowdown, Hansen is bullish on the investment market in the East Bay. “The market is strong, with low supply and high demand and l expect this trend to continue throughout 2019.  Economic indicators suggest we’re at the top of the market right now and as investor demand slows, we’ll see more buying opportunity for owner-users,” said Hansen. “Buyers and sellers are looking for brokers who can bring value-add to the table with deep local knowledge of the market, understand future trends in the industry as well as current financial and accounting regulations.”

According to the first quarter, 2019 TRI Northern California retail market report current vacancy sits below 5% with almost 2 million square feet under construction. Hansen believes there will always be a need for brick and mortar retail, though companies will have to adapt to evolving consumer habits.  Struggling retailers will disappear, stores will continue to “right size” and carry less inventory.  Successful companies will create a reason to shop, through retail experience, and AI will play a major role in the future of retail.

Before joining TRI, Hansen was with Colliers International in the East Bay and Grubb & Ellis in Silicon Valley. She is active in a variety of professional and community organizations including, the International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC), Commercial Real Estate Women (CREW Network), Women Influencing Sustainable Change (WISC) and ProVisors, a professional networking organization.
