Douglas J. Quiroz serves as President of the Brokerage Division at Cemo Commercial where he oversees much of Cemo Commercials operations. Quiroz brings with him to his real estate career more than 12 years of value added business, project management and construction project oversight experience. Quiroz’s passion for business development and strategic marketing is reflected in his instrumental efforts to create and manage three successful businesses over course of the past 15 years.
Prior to joining Cemo Commercial, Quiroz began developing his commercial real estate career as an investment sales associate with Sperry VanNess focused in commercial office space. Prior to joining Sperry VanNess Quiroz managed the design, development and construction operations for California projects with Costa Communities, Inc., a Colorado-based multi-family development company. While there, Quiroz was responsible for developing design budgets, managing design teams, expediting project approval through the planning and building departments, and developing scopes, schedules, and budgets for construction of two $50 million for-sale condominium projects in Northern California. On the more administrative side, Quiroz had been responsible for developing and processing the Department of Real Estate documents to form homeowners’ associations and homeowners’ association budgets, and developing a home warranty program for prospective buyers.
In 1998, Quiroz founded Aggressive Concepts, a computer graphics and design company providing services to the environmental industry. As Aggressive Concepts’ environmental client base rapidly grew, Quiroz recognized an opportunity to leverage his company’s success by teaming with an environmental consulting firm; in 2003, Aggressive Concepts merged with Groundworks Environmental, Inc. (Groundworks). Quiroz’s new role as Vice President of Business Development at Groundworks quickly produced many new opportunities, including a large-scale data management project where Quiroz provided strategic direction for, and supervised programming and implementation of, remote wireless data transmitters for a multi-million dollar U.S. Army Corps of Engineer clean-up program at the former Fort Ord, California.
Quiroz is a U.S. Army Veteran and served in Panama and Desert Storm. After completing his Army service, Quiroz’s educational achievements include an Associates of Science Degree in Computer Animated Design from ITT Technical Institute. Quiroz currently resides in Folsom, California with his wife and two daughters.
