Dana Vargas is the ultimate networker and is great at not only making introductions but building long lasting relationships. This skill has suited her well in her seven years at Jones Lang LaSalle, as she has built a strong list of clients that has resulted in repeat business, referrals, and sourced new business. Vargas’ client roster includes Shorenstein Properties, Kilroy, CIM, Gaw and Rising Realty Partners to name a few. Her leasing assignments total more than 5 million square feet of prominent LA office space. In addition to excelling on the brokerage side, Vargas has taken on several leadership roles over the years including past president of Young Professionals Group at JLL, cofounder of JLL’s Women’s Initiative Network and associate member of SIOR and a LA Chapter board member. Vargas’ college success as a Division I volleyball player gives her the competitive edge needed to negotiate tight deals, but also the team mentality and leadership to work collaboratively with both tenants and landlords. She is innovative and energetic, always coming with great ideas for driving attendance to networking events and broker opens. Clients and colleagues alike consistently comment on the ease of working with Vargas and how she brings a fresh perspective to her listings. There is no doubt that Dana Vargas will be among LA’s top brokers in the near future and she most certainly deserves the honor of Connect’s Next Generation Award.
