Mr. Parker joined Rialto in 2016 and is Managing Director and Head of the Equity Investment Management Group.
He leads the firm’s commercial expansion by means of acquiring, developing and investing in targeted commercial real estate opportunities for our own account and through experienced third party operators. He has over 32 years of public and private company real estate acquisition, development, financing, disposition and institutional advisory experience across all asset classes.
After 18 years with Koll Development Company and Sares-Regis Group, where he acquired, developed and operated in excess of 12.5 million square feet of institutional commercial properties nationwide, plus nearly 9,000 acres for master-planned residential communities in California, he founded his own company, ExTerra Realty Partners in 2005 and executed multiple acquisitions, developments and corporate advisory assignments in California, North Carolina, Tennessee and Texas. In 2009, he co-founded Quattro Realty Group, an institutional advisory and investment platform that concentrated on real estate advisory services for institutional investor clients nationwide, primarily in connection with large, complex, mixed-use, urban in-fill developments. In 2014, Mr. Parker integrated the California-based Quattro team and book of business with Lennar’s westward expansion of its commercial property development line. Shortly after Rialto took leadership of this line of business in 2016, Mr. Parker assumed oversight of the commercial property group’s national operations. Mr. Parker attended San Diego State University and University of California at Berkeley.
