With almost 20 years of senior level experience in the real estate capital markets, Vidaurri will be responsible for directing and executing investment strategy. The 25-year old Beverly Hills-based firm focuses on under-valued multifamily and commercial properties in select submarkets. Since its inception, StarPoint has acquired more than 10 million square feet of commercial and residential properties with an aggregate value of more than $1 billion.

In 2016, StarPoint Properties sold two retail properties in downtown Tempe, Ariz. A private investor from San Francisco acquired the properties as part of a 1031 tax deferred exchange, for $13.8 million.
