BRE #: 01237995
Joe Wojdowski entered the commercial real estate business in 1997, having previously worked as a tax preparer and auditor for a local accounting firm. Joe’s first foray into commercial real estate was at one of the largest commercial real estate firms in San Diego and preferring a more diverse hands-on experience, Joe soon moved to a local asset manager/developer. Here Joe refined the specialties of pre-development work and landlord representation.
In 2003 Joe moved to Epsteen and Associates to start the Landlord Services Division for the San Diego office. Notable projects include the assemblage, lease up, and disposition of a Fresh & Easy anchored shopping center in the community of North Park. This very successful development hit the hot buttons of Smart Growth, Urban Infill, and Brown Field Redevelopment, and was the only sizable retail project to be built in San Diego in 2009. Other noteworthy projects include leasing a ground up outlet center (Gran Plaza Outlets), mixed use predevelopment leasing and land sales, as well as leasing and sales of traditional retail centers in San Diego and Imperial County.
In 2008 Joe expanded on his skill set to represent merchants as well. Included on the client list are ALDI, Top Golf, Guess, Carl’s Jr, Club Champion, Rent-a-Center, Sally Beauty, CosmoProf, Club Pilates, Hyatt, and Choice Hotels.
As a very hardworking man with a strong moral compass, Joe’s professional relationships come with a sincere level of comfort, trust, and confidence; a dedication that allows clients peace of mind from a will and inherent disposition to go above and beyond.
Accordingly, Joe is no stranger to interpreting zoning codes, interacting with city staff, leading architects and engineers, and filling whatever gaps are encountered on the road to project completion.
Joe graduated from The University of California at Santa Barbara with a BS in Economics and a Minor in Accounting, and is a native San Diegan. He spends his free time with friends and family, enjoying his three young sons, Tucker, Preston and Kyle, as much as possible with his wife Noelle. Given a little extra time, Joe is likely to be found on the beaches from La Jolla to Carlsbad in the water surfing.
