History

Founded in 1974

Founded in 1974

Founded in 1974, Basin Street Properties has truly come a long way.  The company has grown from the small entrepreneurial firm of the early years to owning a half-billion dollars of commercial real estate across two states. As a privately held company, Basin Street remains unique in the industry relative to the speed and ease that decisions – and deals – can be made.

Basin Street’s investment in Petaluma is clearly their principal legacy; it has changed the fabric of that town forever. The company has demonstrated a profound understanding of how real estate can change a community, and strives to shape that impact with every development or investment in the current markets of Sacramento and the North Bay area of California, and Reno, Nevada.

Today, Basin Street has the right team in place to successfully navigate rapid growth. Just like in days past, their focus remains on “creating environments where companies can thrive.”
