BayAreaComRE is your place to find up-to-date information and breaking topics from myriad sources including news outlets, online publications, inside deal makers and first-hand accounts of the Bay Area Real Estate Market. We have a regional focus, but we also weigh in on global real estate issues that affect the Bay Area.

Started by two former Rookie of the Year winners in Norther California, BayAreaComRE challenges the status quo of the commercial real estate industry. BayAreaComRE was co-founded by Justin Bedecarré and Jon Dishotsky in the San Francisco office of Cushman & Wakefield. Justin Bedecarré (about.me/bedecarre) works in Downtown San Francisco. Justin works on the top producing office leasing team in San Francisco, representing firms like Hearst Corporation, Qualcomm, Rhapsody, Broadcom, Thomson Reuters, AKQA and Delta Dental. Jon will be contributing stories from time to time as well. Jon was integral in launching this site and awesome to work with to build this Blog what it is today.

Founded in 1917, Cushman & Wakefield, the largest privately held  commercial real estate in the world with 231 offices in 58 countries and 15,000 employees.  The firm represents a diverse customer base ranging from small businesses to Fortune 500 companies.  It offers a complete range of services within four primary disciplines: Transaction Services, including tenant and landlord representation in office, industrial and retail real estate; Capital Markets, including property sales, investment management, valuation services, investment banking, debt and equity financing; Client Solutions, including integrated real estate strategies for large corporations and property owners, and Consulting Services, including business and real estate consulting.

The San Francisco Bay Area is one of the world’s most prosperous and diverse regions. It is comprised of nine counties, including San Francisco County, Solano and Sonoma counties to the north, Alameda and Contra Costa Counties to the east, and San Mateo and Santa Clara Counties to the south. Further north, we have Napa county and wine country, and further south we enjoy the coastal cities of Monterey county.

The San Francisco Bay Area owes much of its economic success to its extraordinary human and intellectual capital. Local companies have access to a large pool of creative, motivated and highly educated candidates: 42 percent are college graduates; 78 percent have high school diplomas. The depth and quality of the labor pool is due, in part, to the fine universities located in the Bay Area, including the University of San Francisco, the University of California at San Francisco, the University of California at Berkeley, University of California at Davis, Stanford University in Palo Alto, Santa Clara University and Saint Mary’s University in Moraga.
