David LeVine, Principal

In 2002, 9 years into my wealth management career, a HNW client asked for help locating a passive commercial property for an upcoming 1031 exchange. In the process of my research and due diligence, I was introduced to fractional interest Tenant in Common (aka TIC) commercial real estate, which was structured as a security and qualified for 1031 exchange, via a just-released 2002 safe harbor revenue ruling from the IRS.

I loved the industry and the business-to-business interaction, so by 2003 I had transitioned full time, joining Direct Capital Securities (DCS), the first TIC Managing Broker Dealer. Within the year I developed into a subject matter expert and became National Sales Manager, while still participating in my other roles in marketing, due diligence, business development and executive team member.

In late 2004, a large DCS sponsor client approached me, saying they were leaving for another MBD and asked me to continue representing them directly.

​After receiving several referrals and requests for my direct services, I formed Portland Pacific Capital in 2005, negotiated an agreement with DCS, and continued to be part of the MBD thru mid-2007.

I continue to be a member of multiple collaborative teams of professionals, expanding my wide-ranging experience and skillsets to service varying client needs.
