Tim Gunnink

Senior Vice President

Tim Gunnink is a “nearly native” of Arizona and has lived in the Western U.S. his entire life. A fifteen-year industry veteran, he began his career in commercial real estate at De Rito Partners, a retail development and brokerage firm. There he acquired an intimate knowledge of retail real estate development, leasing and sales, working through all phases of numerous ground-up projects – from the initial site selection to the divestiture of the asset. In 2004, Tim joined Phoenix Commercial Advisors, continuing his exemplary track record and expanding his portfolio of services to include tenant representation, third-party development leasing and investment sales.

In 2009, he formed GDC/RE, a retail real estate services firm dedicated to the success of its clients, specializing in project leasing and investment sales in Arizona, tenant representation throughout the Western U.S., and outsourced real estate & advisory services for retailers and retail property owners nationally. As President and CEO, he directed the day-to-day operations and oversaw of a team of 20 agents and staff with offices in Phoenix and Las Vegas. GDC/RE was acquired by Newmark Grubb Knight Frank in 2014.

Tim joined the ORION team in 2016, where he has focused his skill set on retail investments and land development opportunities. One of the greatest benefits he provides to his clients is his depth of knowledge and experience in nearly all facets of retail real estate, as both advisor and principal. He is known throughout the industry for his ability to find opportunity where others see challenges.
