"CapRock's focus on institutional-quality assets, and their entrepreneurial approach in acquiring, developing and adding value to them, makes them unique in the commercial real estate investment sector - and provides a significant competitive advantage," says Arnett. "I plan to leverage my expertise in all aspects of the acquisitions process to further our firm's mission and extend our success in delivering impressive returns to investors." Arnett graduated Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Arts from Occidental College in Los Angeles, where he played collegiate football, serving as Captain his senior year. He is a licensed California Real Estate Agent, an active member of NAIOP SoCal, and a graduate of NAIOP Southern California Young Professional's Group, in which he has stayed active as a Chair for both the Alumni Programs and Curriculum Committees.
