CBRE Strengthens East Bay Occupier Practice with New Senior Vice President in Oakland

CBRE announced that Daniel Bisabri has joined its Oakland office as a Senior Vice President with Advisory & Transaction Services. Mr. Bisabri is recognized as a top broker who specializes in representing companies based in the San Francisco East Bay with their office and R&D expansion planning, strategy development, lease negotiation and restructuring, corporate financial consulting and transaction management.

“Daniel is well-known in the industry for his work with privately held, homegrown East Bay companies. He understands how to help firms scale and will enhance our Occupier Services practice, especially during these trying times when companies are in need of strategic guidance,” stated Trevor Thorpe, Managing Director of CBRE’s Oakland office.

Prior to joining CBRE, Mr. Bisabri spent 13 years with Cushman & Wakefield in Oakland, most recently as Executive Director, where he was a top producer in the East Bay market. In this role, his clients ranged from high-growth startups to corporate occupiers, representing a variety of industries, including life science, biotech, technology and engineering. Some of his most-notable deals include representing Pivot Bio, a Berkeley-based ag-tech company, in 115,000 sq. ft. of laboratory, R&D, greenhouse and office facilities over the past 18 months; Lonza Biologics with its expansion of 50,000 sq. ft. of R&D and laboratory facilities in Hayward in 2018; and Turnitin with its 50,000-sq.-ft. headquarters lease in Oakland in 2015. 

“More Bay Area companies are turning to the East Bay as they look to grow their operations in a cost-efficient manner, drawn to the market’s labor pool, thriving R&D ecosystem and connectivity between UCSF, UC Berkeley and Stanford. Real estate optimization will only become more important in a post-COVID-19 world, and with CBRE’s tremendous global platform and resources, I can help my clients make the most-informed decisions,” said Mr. Bisabri. “When you consider the positive impact of our clients’ work—whether that’s advancing health, quality of life, technology or the environment—at the end of the day, I feel proud helping them expand their impact and mission.”

Mr. Bisabri graduated from California Polytechnic State University at San Luis Obispo with a double concentration in Finance and Accounting and is an active member of the Alumni association.
