MANAGEMENT BIOGRAPHY

Ryan Dunigan has been involved in real estate since 2005, including personally investing in income-producing real estate in Arizona, California, Ohio, Indiana, and Colorado with a value of over $18.0 million. Ryan’s investment strategy is to leverage a historically low cost basis with low rate fixed debt to create superior cash flow over time. Cash-on-Cash returns for existing investments in Arizona have been averaging 8-15% annually, and are expected to grow to 15%+ upon stabilization and rent growth. Leveraged ROI is expected to top 15-20% upon a sale in the future. Emphasis remains on cash flow.

The biggest challenge faced in Phoenix was developing a team of brokers, contractors, and management companies that have an owner’s best interest in mind. Those issues were mitigated by developing a top-notch vendor list via trusted referrals over the years. Ryan has built a reliable and highly responsive team that will be further leveraged with new properties.

Ryan’s experience in real estate investments goes beyond residential investments. Professional accomplishments in commercial real estate include:

Multifamily Asset Management (LaSalle Investment Management (2011-2013)

  • Co-Lead asset manager for 8 communities from California to New Jersey, representing over $750 million in value.

Office and Industrial Investment Brokerage (Jones Lang LaSalle (2005-2011)

  • Involved in the sale of over 4 million square feet of commercial product, representing over $1.5 billion.
  • Clients represented include Qualcomm, Inc, TA Associates, Kennedy Wilson, Embarcadero Capital, Menlo Equities, Adidas, and Maguire Properties.

I truly enjoy my work and am challenged daily with finding ways to assist my clients. I work closely with many clients who have utilized my escrow and title experience and expertise for many years.

I have taken on several new clients by virtue of their experiences with me as a cross agent in an escrow transaction. It is my pleasure to work with many attorneys, loan officers, brokers, buyers and sellers who have made me their escrow officer of choice.
