Chip Wright joined CBRE in 1985 after graduating with a Bachelor of Science degree in Finance from Arizona State University.
Beginning in 1997, Chip formed a team of real estate professionals focused on assisting public corporations and private companies with their real estate and facility needs. The team of seven professionals provides consultation and rapid implementation of strategic facility plans, acquisition and disposition of property, financial analysis and project management.
During his 34-year career with CBRE, Chip has consistently been one of the leading professionals in the Newport Beach office. From 1994 through 2018, Chip was in the top five in revenue generation of all professionals in the Newport Beach office. In 1997, 1999, 2000 & 2008, Chip was the number one professional in the office. In 1995, 1996 and 1999, Chip was honored as a member of CBRE’s Colbert Coldwell Circle, the top 3% of earnings for all professionals nationwide. Chip has completed approximately 2,500 transactions totaling in excess of 74 million square feet of buildings and 400 acres of land.
He prides himself on integrating his understanding of the unique needs of his clients. This innovative real estate strategy contributes measurably to their success. If repeat business is any indication, Chip has been successful. For example, Chip has completed 25 transactions with State Farm Insurance, 22 with St. John Knits, 31 with Allergan, 20 with HID Global and 11 with Eaton Corporation.
