Congratulations to Darcy Miramontes, J.D. for being selected as one of Real Estate Forums’ 2015 California Women of Influence. Darcy joins an elite group of professionals nationwide in commercial real estate setting the bar for women in the industry. With hard work and dedication to their professions, these women are indeed influential in their marketplace.
Darcy, always driven to succeed, once envisioned herself arguing in front of the court after earning her law degree. Little did she know the debating and negotiating skills she learned in law school would actually be the tools she would use to develop an extremely successful career in real estate. In a traditionally male dominated industry, she began her brokerage career and exceeded all expectations, earning the coveted “Rookie of the Year” award at her former firm. Darcy has now completed more than $1.25 billion in multi-family transactions (including Ballpark Village), and is recognized as a superstar among her peers and clients. When JLL sought to expand its multifamily practice into San Diego, they proactively recruited Darcy and her team based upon their stellar reputation and results. Darcy has also established herself as an in-demand speaker and a frequent expert source for the media, both locally and regionally.
As Executive Vice President, Darcy specializes in multifamily investments in Southern California and San Diego County. As part of the Capital Markets division, Darcy leads the valuation, marketing and disposition of multifamily projects throughout San Diego and the Inland Empire. During her 15 years of experience, she has represented a wide range of clients including institutional and private investors. She provides a range of expert services to these investors, including asset consultation, financial evaluations, contract reviews and deal point negotiations that fit each client’s real estate needs. Darcy is licensed to practice real estate in both California and Nevada, where she has negotiated the sale of over 11,200 units totaling more than $1.25 billion in transactions.
Darcy got her start in the business with her mother Diane Miramontes, who, in 2000, added Darcy to her multifamily brokerage team. As mother and mentor, Diane taught Darcy about commercial real estate, helping her develop her skills as a broker and also helping to develop the network of clients that Darcy continues to do business with today. Darcy and her mother became very well known in the regional real estate industry as a power brokerage team, and now Darcy carries on that legacy with the rest of the JLL multifamily team she has helped create.
Darcy’s goal is to live up to her mother Diane’s example, to be a respected, ethical broker who provides a valuable service to her clients. Darcy looks forward to continuing her roles as the leader of JLL’s multifamily practice in San Diego while continuing her successful sales track record.
Darcy thinks there are many expanding roles for women in the commercial real estate industry today, specifically in the fields of construction, property management and leasing, but feels there has been minimal headway for women in brokerage. She believes in the power of networking and collaborating amongst women in CRE. She believes sponsoring and mentoring other women is vital for improving the opportunities that are available to them. To that end Darcy is deeply involved in JLL’s Women’s Network, and is a member of the CREW Network and Women on Course. She also recently spoke at ULI’s “Girlfriend’s Guide to Business” event. About 75 people attended the Girlfriends Guide ULI event, where Darcy spoke about the role of female business development, leadership and sponsorship in the commercial real estate industry. The Women on Course is a business networking organization that encourages women to tap into the business, social and fitness benefits of golf.
