LOS ANGELES, Sept. 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Partners Trust, a leading real estate company in Los Angeles, announced that new development specialist and top producing agent Horacio LeDon has joined the brokerage as Head of New Development. In this capacity, LeDon will oversee the company's newly-launched New Development division and is charged with turning Partners Trust into one of the preeminent players in Los Angeles' burgeoning new-development arena.
Previously President of Douglas Elliman's New Development business in Florida and California, LeDon was responsible for bringing in Greenland Group's Metropolis project, the largest mixed-use development on the West Coast and the key to Downtown Los Angeles's explosive condominium boom. While overseeing Douglas Elliman's Florida and California developments, LeDon was instrumental in growing the portfolio from $500 million to more than $4 billion. His properties included Ian Schrager's The Residences at The Miami Beach EDITION, Faena House, and architect Rem Koolhaas' Park Grove development in Miami.
"I am thrilled to join the collaborative culture that exists at Partners Trust, and I love the company's approach to marketing, its technology platform, and the global reach we'll enjoy with their strong presence in Asia," said LeDon. "The brokerage's CEO, Nick Segal, wants to grow the division organically and that was a big draw for me."
"We are delighted that Horacio chose Partners Trust," said Nick Segal, CEO and Founder of Partners Trust. "It's a pure joy having someone with Horacio's know-how of all aspects of new development, his industry-leading experience, and sales track record to become part of our team and to be at the helm of this new division."
Prior to joining Douglas Elliman in 2013, LeDon was the founder of the eponymous brokerage Horacio LeDon Real Estate, with offices in NYC, Miami, and Los Angeles. Previously, he was West Coast Senior Vice President for Starwood Capital's ST Residential unit.
