Principal, L.A. Realty Partners
Lisa St. John is a founding Principal of L.A. Realty Partners and specializes in Tenant and Landlord Representation, as well as Investment Sales throughout Los Angeles. With a strong background in financial analysis, lease negotiations and strategic consulting, St. John has completed more than 2,000 lease transactions. She has represented some of the highest-profile transactions in Southern California including representation of the Los Angeles Unified School District for its one million square foot headquarters, as well as an additional 600,000 square feet of office lease transactions.
St. John serves as a leader and mentor for countless professional women (and men) whose careers have changed as a result of her advice, experience and perspective. St. John also has a long professional history of changing the Greater LA community for the better.
In 2004 she worked with the Fulfillment Fund, a long standing, youth-serving nonprofit that mentors high risk youth to be first in their families to graduate from high school and go to college. She worked pro bono to identify and coordinate a well-executed move into new and better space at a time the organization unexpectedly lost its lease. After a 30 year history with the Girl Scout Angeles Council where she served on the Board, in 2008 she scoured downtown LA to find affordable space for the headquarters of the newly merged Girl Scout Council, creating a deal at a prime location that now serves 40,000 girls in partnership with 24,000 adult volunteers. She continues to lead transactions for the council to assure girls have safe space aligned with the strategic program priorities of the girls and their leaders.
