Meissner Jacquét, the largest third-party property management company in San Diego, announced today that it is changing its name to Meissner Commercial Real Estate Services. The new identity reflects the company’s growth and progression from a single-service entity into a full-service enterprise and ownership’s intent to move the brand forward with a new image and client-centered, integrated service approach.
Chief Executive Officer and Founder, Tim Meissner, said his founding partner, Jerry Jacquét, retired six years ago and that the company has since evolved to offer new and expanded services and to include a deep bench of business governance within the board of directors.
“We’re in business to ensure our clients enjoy the best possible property ownership experience,” Meissner said. “With our new name, we’re acknowledging the expansion of our firm, but we are still the same people led by a best-in-class leadership team and innovative, forward-thinking commercial real estate professionals managing our properties and portfolios. The strong relationships we’ve forged with tenants, vendors, and property owners through the years remain our priority as we move forward.”
Since Jacquet’s departure, Meissner’s four sons, local business professionals in their own rights, have joined the board of directors. With outside senior positions in finance, marketing, real estate, and software engineering, their insights, business acumen, and people skills provide important contributions to the longevity of the business.
“Over the years, I’ve been approached many times about selling or merging,” continued Meissner. “The more I thought about it, the more I was committed to creating a legacy brand and keeping the business private and in local hands. Today, I’m excited to say that Meissner is here to stay for the long run fueled by our new brand and with sights set on future growth.”
Operating from an integrated teamwork model, Meissner’s core business focuses on Asset Management, Property Management, Accounting, Construction Management, Due Diligence, Financial Analysis/Audit, Facility Management, Acquisitions/Dispositions, and Consulting for clients throughout Southern California. Each of its service areas are large divisions within the firm and operate with an integrated teamwork model. The company’s current portfolio includes Washington Capital, Carlsbad Research Center, San Diego Regional Center, San Diego Spectrum, and Port of San Diego.
Meissner added that the company was able to retain all of its 49 employees during the pandemic and that they kept in very close contact with tenants, property owners, and lenders. As a result, the team has been able to share creative solutions to challenges brought on by COVID-19 with many of its customers.
