True North is a leading national real estate investment firm based out of Scottsdale, AZ. It was founded back in 2013 by Tom Donahue to help fill the growing gap between traditional investment strategies versus customer aspirations. Mr. Donahue chose to innovate by leveraging wealth management principles to create sustainable, tax-deferred investment income from real estate for individuals as well as businesses.
With over 30 years of experience in commercial and federal government real estate, True North has advised, acquired, and/or managed over $3.0BN in assets. The strength of our broad-based market experience is the knowledge of how to purchase real estate, timing, and, most importantly, staying attentive to the management of properties. It has allowed us to create and sustain wealth for our clients and their future generations.
Mr. Donahue graduated from the University of Southern California in 1985 with a B.S Degree in Real Estate Finance. He served as president of Sigma Alpha Epsilon Fraternity while in school and was also on the baseball team.
After graduating, Mr. Donahue went to work for TOLD Real Estate Development Co, based in Ventura, CA. In 1991, Grubb & Ellis recruited him to become a member of their Phoenix, AZ office. In 1993, Mr. Donahue, at the age of 30, started his own Commercial Brokerage Company, AzCal, which transformed into an International Real Estate Investment Company, “International Capital Partners”.
Mr. Donahue raised private equity worldwide for the acquisition of commercial real estate located in the United States. Over a 15 year period, he acquired and managed over 10MM SF of commercial and industrial space. Mr. Donahue and Deloitte & Touche (Edinburgh, Scotland) formed the first Investment platform enabling on-shore capital to be invested into U.S. Based Real Estate.
