About Us

Secured Properties is a full-service commercial real estate firm based in Los Angeles. We offer a variety of services from analysis, advisory and sales to leasing of commercial, retail, office, multi-family, land and various income properties containing cell phone towers and on-site & off-site billboard / signage income. Our SP Residential division provides services for sales and leasing of Single Family Residences and Condominiums and developer consultation. We approach each property and transaction differently and create a marketing plan, with our clients, to meet the needs of both. We have decades of experience and our teams are comprised of complementary experience, talents and skill sets to achieve our client’s investment criteria and specific return requirements.

Secured Properties has a long and established success record and maintains its dominant position in the Los Angeles commercial real estate market by focusing on its core business:
  • Investment Sales
  • Tenant Representation
  • Landlord Representation
  • Project Consulting
Secured Properties was founded in 2003 by Jay Chu and Ryan Yatman, both Los Angeles natives. They have grown into an elite team and built the company around their philosophy. Results for our clients come first and we will assemble the best project team possible for each assignment. We approach each and every property differently, determined to define and overcome potential challenges, highlight the attributes and effectuate positive results to enhance and increase the underlying asset value.

Our clients range from small companies and property owners interested in investing or leasing their first location, to syndicators, to large public and private companies, to institutional owners who require expert counsel managing their owned and/or leased real estate. Secured Properties advises locally for our clients, applying the same methodology regardless of the size of the engagement. Our clients benefit from experienced, stable, committed and cohesive project teams comprised of partners, associates and professional staff. We are a 100% locally and privately held real estate service company which is not burdened with the obligations, responsibilities or potential conflicts of outside ownership or remote shareholders.

Our unique platform has helped us to create a thriving and positive corporate culture that is responsible for transacting many of Southern California’s unique sales transactions each year. We are confident that our long-term relationships, unsurpassed market knowledge and laser focus translate into greater results for our clients.
