LA's Top Office Brokers

Last year was a banner year for sales in LA. In this new ongoing series, we'll take a look at the top brokers from the top firms in the city.


1. R. Todd Doney

Title: Vice chairman, CBRE

Deal Volume: 106

Deal Value: $624M

Deal SF: 3.6M SF

No surprise here with Todd (snapped with wife Michele), who's been a top player in the market for years. Among his top 2014 deals are the KPMG sale in DTLA of 590k SF and the TetraTech lease in Pasadena for 60k SF. Every year since joining CBRE, Todd has been awarded the Colbert Coldwell Circle Award for being among the top 3% of producers in the US.


2. Eric Lastition

Title: EVP, Colliers

Deal Volume: 90

Deal Value: $307M

Deal SF: 2.1M SF

Eric (snapped here with daughters Katie and Sarah) had quite the year in 2014, including one memorable deal that had him focusing on a completely different state. After an LA-based private equity firm acquired a telecom company in Illinois, Eric helped his local client sell the company's 850k SF HQ in Naperville, IL, to Select Income REIT for $187M. Eric tells us it was the biggest sale of his career, and he's now focused on connecting the dots and seeing the bigger picture outside of LA.


3. Andrew McDonald's Team

Title: Exec director, Cushman & Wakefield

Deal Volume: 54

Deal Value: $268M

Deal SF: 1.1M SF

The team includes associate Michael Johnson Jr., director Peter Collins, director Scott Menkus and Andrew. The team also includes senior brokerage coordinator Erin Everett. Andrew actually got his start in the business as executive assistant to John Cushman III. Today he runs the DTLA office.


4. Scott Romick

Title: Principal, Lee & Associates

Deal Volume: 62

Deal Value: $28M

Deal SF: 226k SF

Scott (snapped at the beach with wife Dana, and daughters Jordan and Avery) worked with myriad clients last year. Among his most memorable deals of the year was finding 30k SF for post-production firm EPS-Cineworks (“Hunger Games: Mockingjay” and “Orange is the New Black”). After considering lease and purchase options, the group settled on leasing space on Cahuenga Boulevard in LA. Scott says the deal is right up his alley because it helped the company realize the potential of its business.
