After fast-tracking four years of his education and graduating from University of San Diego magna cum laude with a Bachelor of Business Administration at the age of 19, Tucker then went on to be the youngest ever graduate of University of San Diego’s respected Master of Science in Real Estate program, which he finished at the age of 20, graduating with honors. When Tucker received his broker’s license he was one of the youngest ever licensed in the state of California.
Tucker’s focus is advising top companies on their most complex and highest value assignments.
