Manuel Urquiza


My professional life for the past 25 years has largely revolved around my passion for great architecture and design. A home’s physical and psychological well-being affects changes to the functionality of space, great space influences the mental state of people, “we shape our spaces, and then they shape our attitudes and behavior”. A home’s architectural spaces create an environment that is comfortable, inspiring while fostering a sense of comfort, and security creating lifetime memories. Home offices should demonstrate a dynamite sense of liveliness, home spaces where family members feel good at work and study allowing them to move from indoor to outdoor spaces, from one area to another, to choose where they prefer to work for any given task based on the type of workspace that best accommodates the moment.

A realtor’s job begins with an understanding of their client’s expectations and financial goals. I gain my clients’ trust through a practice of “no sales pitches.” I’m mindful of what’s important to them and work to build a fiduciary relationship that protects their interests and achieves their goals.

My expertise lies in my ability to communicate today’s economic conditions, financing outlook, and housing market, all of which are amplified by my deep understanding of real estate, and architecture. I can evaluate the quality of properties, and the functional integrity from an architectural perspective. I provide guidance in; real estate, architecture, construction, finance functioning similarly to a ” Consultant”. My advice provides expertise for the three disciplines and creates a comprehensive solution by one Consultant, often provided by multiple professionals in most real estate transactions. Perhaps most importantly, I am able to identify improvements and upgrades that will elevate your home above others in a similar price range.

My current focus is on single-family residential, multi-unit projects, and investment properties. With my comprehensive knowledge of financing strategies, cash flow returns, construction, I’m well-positioned to help my development and investment clients realize their project goals. Born and raised in Los Angeles, I’ve practiced architecture across the United States. My architectural practice has received numerous design awards and has garnered considerable returns for its investors.

My hobbies include coaching soccer and basketball. I am an ardent backpacker, having climbed throughout the Sierra Nevadas. As an equestrian, I’ve ridden competitively, both dressage and jumpers.
