Bio

With more than 30 years of experience in commercial real estate investment banking, Don has closed more than $15 billion in loans with some of Southern California’s leading developers and investors. He has long-standing relationships with most major capital sources nationwide.

Prior to joining Grandbridge, Don was a principal with Curtis Group Real Estate, Inc., a mortgage-banking firm he co-founded with Hunter and Taylor Curtis in 2015. Over the past 24 months, this team has closed 32 loans totaling just over $1.2 billion with all major lender groups.

Before starting his own company, Don opened the West Coast operation of HFF in 1996, where he helped grow the company’s West Coast presence from a one-man operation to five offices with more than 100 real estate professionals.

Don earned his master’s degree in real estate finance from the University of Denver and his bachelor's degree in civil engineering from North Carolina State University. He is a licensed California real estate broker.
