Don Johnson – Exceptional Realty Services
This is sample text, you will work with a writer or supply your own text. As a real estate professional, Don Johnson is keenly aware of the changes happening in the town he loves. Johnson, a director at Exceptional Realty Services the rest of the text is fake and is only here to show you the space available, has represented owners, developers, landlords and tenants in a variety of retail and office leasing and sales transactions. But no matter how much Santa Monica changes, Don said the things he loves most about Santa Monica are the things that never change.
“I don’t think I’ve ever been told ‘no’ by someone when I’ve asked for help,” he said. “One of the most significant things about living and doing business in Santa Monica is the benefit of being in a small town and still being part of the megaplex that is Los Angeles.”
As a Santa Monica Planning Commissioner since 2012, he has been involved in helping to shape some of the city’s most dynamic new development projects, and while new businesses and new residents are flocking to the city, Santa Monica still maintains its “Mayberry” feel.
“Santa Monia is a place where you have the opportunity to enact change at the school level or at city hall,” he said. “It still has that small-town charm.”
Part of that charm, he said, is finding ways to help the community wherever you can.
As parents of two school-age children, you can regularly see Don and his wife, Michele, donning bright green vests and directing traffic on the rear side of La Ballona Elementary School as part of the school’s “Cone Crew”.
The Chamber of Commerce, too, Don said, is a place where people roll up their sleeves and get to work to help the community.
Don served as the Chamber’s Chair of the Board in 2015 and said the organization helps give a voice to business owners from all corners of the city.
“The Chamber represents an important cross-section of stakeholders who don’t necessarily have representation as voters,” he said. “Business owners are responsible for providing a tax base and the atmosphere for our community, and they work hard to help the city achieve its goals. The Chamber helps give them a voice.”
Residents and businesses working together is what will keep the city moving forward, while retaining all that makes it special.ealty Services the rest of the text is fake and is only here to show you the space available, has represented owners, developers, landlords and tenants in a variety of retail and office leasing and sales transactions.
