Our Team
Daniel Blanco
COO & Principal

Over his 20 year career, Daniel Blanco has earned a reputation for a singular ability to conceive and complete some of the most complex, intricate and creative transactions in the business. The very definition of a “hands-on owner,” Daniel is personally involved in the execution of every asset management activity that touches “his” properties – from leasing (more than 5 million square feet), sales and acquisitions, to capital improvement and construction programs, to dispositions.

Daniel’s relationships extend into every avenue of the real estate industry, including tenants, brokers, contractors, lenders, attorneys, managers and vendors. His attention to detail and ongoing enhancement of these relationships supports the growth in the value of each asset as well as the company as a whole. This expertise that has made him a popular source with reporters, being regularly cited in business and real estate publications, as well as a sought-after speaker at industry conferences.

Prior to forming BSD with his partner, Raymond Chalme’, Daniel was a Managing Director at JEMB Realty Corp. (1998-2004) He began his career at the Edward S. Gordon Company (now CBRE) where in addition to the asset management of third-party assets, he worked directly alongside Mr. Gordon on the value enhancement of his private portfolio.
