Our People

J Dapper, Principal
Phone: (702) 733-3622 ext. 21 •

A native of Las Vegas, J Dapper has seen his city grow exponentially over his lifetime – and studying those patterns of growth has given him unprecedented insight into the market.

His career in real estate began with a focus on residential properties as a Realtor back in 1998. During that time, he not only advised clients on the purchase and sale of residential properties, but he also managed up to 50 rental properties at the same time. He transitioned to commercial real estate in 2002 when he began buying, selling and managing triple net industrial and office space. His early career was defined by landmark purchase and management activities with marquee developments such as an 8,000-square-foot complex at St. Rose and Eastern, the 7,500 square foot Palm Court retail development on Eastern, and management of Paradise Esplanade – the 60,000-square-foot center located across from the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. By the following year, he began developing retail and industrial properties throughout the Las Vegas Valley.

J's current portfolio includes ownership and management of several large triple net retail centers, all of which are self managed. His partnership with Ten15 Development, LLC includes management of extensive developments totaling approximately 250,000 square feet and counting.
