Commercial Property Account Manager
David started working in restaurants as a way to support himself while going to college. Little did he know that he would end up falling in love with the food and wine business. Starting as a waiter at Bob’s Big Boy, in no time David was working in some of the top restaurants from Malibu to Beverly Hills. After ten years as a waiter David was ready to set out on his own. He first started a catering company, Two Guys from Venice. After a couple of very successful years catering all over the greater Los Angeles area, with a focus on the film and television industry, David was able to put together investors and open his own restaurant. He created a destination location off the beaten path in Santa Monica, and he called it 2424 pico. The restaurant received local and national press and they were a darling with the critics.
Over the next couple of decades David continued with his love of the food and wine industry. He managed several high end restaurants and was able to guide them with his leadership and knowledge to increased success every year. As this knowledge and experience grew he became a certified wine expert. From there David was able to create his own wine distribution company, West Coast Wine Distribution. After nine years of direct sales, David retired from the food and wine business and started working as a mortgage advisor. After five years in that position David was blessed to be recruited to be the first employee in the newly formed Commercial Real Estate Division of the Rodriguez Law Group.
With over a lifetime of experience working and interacting with the public and perfecting his communication skills, David was an obvious choice to spearhead this new division. The leadership skills he developed through his various positions and experiences, made David a vital piece in the creation of this new Commercial Real Estate Division.
