ron cobb - Principal
Ron began his professional career in real estate as a construction Project Manager with a major regional construction company. His most notable project included managing the construction of the $50MM Tonopalo luxury timeshare project in Lake Tahoe, CA. In that capacity, he was responsible for all phases of development from securing pre-development entitlements through owner acceptance of individual units. Tonopalo has since become a model for best practices used in the development of beach front property in the Lake Tahoe Basin by the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency. Also in the Lake Tahoe Basin, Ron oversaw the construction of the successful retail component of the Heavenly Village in Stateline, NV. Prior to these projects, he oversaw the remodel of a 40 year old motel into what is now the $100MM Siena Hotel Spa Casino in downtown Reno, NV. The remodel added luxury suites, a spa ranked in the top five of all spas in the West. In addition to his duties as a commercial real estate broker and partner with Commercial Partners of Nevada, Ron serves as Managing Partner of New Mexico’s preeminent active adult community, Jubilee Los Lunas where he oversees the development of this 422 unit subdivision.
Ron is also a distinguished public servant. He spent four years on both the Airport Authority Advisory Board and the Home Consortium Advisory Board. He spent three and a half years with the Washoe County Planning Commission and served one year as its Chairman. Most recently, Ron completed nearly eight years on the City of Reno Planning Commission with three years as its Chairman. In these roles, Ron has helped shape the future of Reno by advising the City of Reno Council on a myriad of issues, including natural resources, economics, housing, population, land use and zoning. Furthermore, he has reviewed and advised on all major development projects proposed within the City.
