Professional Experience



Ben Rojas specializes in the disposition and leasing of R&D/Manufacturing real estate throughout the Silicon Valley. Ben has success in this area due to his thorough knowledge of the inventory and existing tenant/inventory base. Additionally, his tenacity and aggressiveness is an asset to owners and tenant, as he will see all deals through to the end and will leave no detail open. In particular, Mr. Rojas has had remarkable success in the leasing and sale of difficult projects, as he became Vice President in the first four years of his career.

Ben is active in his church and community and supports many volunteer organizations. He and his wife of 15 years, Winnie, and their daughter reside in the East Bay Hills in California. Ben has always had his clients' best interest in mind in all of his dealings and considers himself to be extremely honest and ethical in both his professional and personal life.
