Rick Vann, President, Real Estate Division
Sunroad Enterprises "It's no secret that the multifamily market in San Diego County has been on fire and continues to show no let-up, with apartment vacancies at an all-time low," says Vann, who has developed real estate in San Diego for more than 36 years. "The next big move will be in Class A office building development, since job creation in the county will drive new office space needs. Having said that, today's occupants must have amazing common-area amenities, unlike anything in the past, which complement how people work and play today."
