I pride myself in being able to connect the dots, both the obvious and the unanticipated ones.

Gene Deering takes a creative, problem-solving approach in working with clients and brokering transactions. Over the past 17 years it’s helped him complete over 1,150 transactions valued at more than $1.6 billion working in tandem with Bob Tuler and Paul Gamberdella while at Radius. In fact, in 2022 the team completed 26 sales and 67 leases involving more than 640,000 sq. ft. and valued at more than $295 million. Prior to joining Radius, Gene began his career working for CB Richard Ellis in 2004.

A former college athlete, Gene takes consistency and performance to a whole other level, two traits that led to promotions to Senior Vice President in 2017, then Principal in 2018. He also doesn’t shy away from a challenge, stepping up to be a featured presenter at the annual Radius forecast during the past two years.

“I love being out there and competing,” he says, a fact that surely propelled him to three consecutive scholar athlete awards for his leadership on the UCSB Gauchos soccer team. “Once it became apparent I wasn’t going to be drafted into the MLS, I needed a new competitive passion. Commercial real estate was an ideal fit.”
