With 40 years in the industry and more energy than most 25-year-olds, 64-year-old Del Beccaro is highly qualified and unafraid to offer bold predictions about commercial real estate in Walnut Creek and the East Bay. His career began in 1977, moving up the ranks at Grubb & Ellis before operating his own development company from 1983 to 1992. Re-entering full-time brokerage, Del Beccaro was the East Bay manager at Colliers, Grubb & Ellis, then oversaw a 40-member team for seven years at Transwestern before moving to TRI Commercial East Bay as a Regional Manager at the end of 2018. He has leased or sold over three million-square-feet of real estate representing clients that include UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital, California Bank & Trust, Mechanics Bank, Wells Fargo, among others.  Del Beccaro weighs in with Walnut Creek Magazine on what to expect in the commercial real estate arena for 2019 and beyond.Click here
