Every week Richard Spaulding selects a commercial real estate sale or lease transaction that he feels has particular merit in its time and place. It may be because of its size in terms of dollars, it may be the first of its type in a long time, it may have been a difficult deal to make for any number of reasons, but it is always of interest to the real estate and general business communities.
It is now that time of year when Richard and his staff look at all the real estate transactions he has designated as a "Deal of the Week" during the year and select the "Deals of the Year." The selected deals and the brokers responsible for them will be highlighted on the San Diego Source at therealdeal.sddt.com and included in a commercial advertising print supplement available January 30, 2014.
