Conrad Topacio spent the early part of his career working in the hospitality industry in San Francisco, Hawaii, and Seattle. With a deep love of food, profound people skills, and a thirst for knowledge, he thrived in a variety of positions from Banquet Chef and Kitchen Manager to Food and Beverage Director and Executive Chef.
In 1991, after 20 successful years in the hospitality industry, Mr. Topacio joined Imperial Real Estate and began his career in Commercial Real Estate. His vast knowledge of the workings of the hospitality industry and his ambition were essential in the acclaim that he received and his speedy rise to the top tier of Seattle’s Commercial Real Estate professionals. In 1996, he joined Prudential Real Estate, which eventually became Quorum Real Estate, where in 1998, his diligence was acknowledged with a “Top Producer” Award. In his time at Quorum, Mr. Topacio began working with venture capitalists, and it came as no surprise to anyone when he later parlayed his dual passions into a handful of successful ventures, including two of Seattle’s premier nightclubs, The Showbox and Baltic Room, as well as a beloved neighborhood restaurant, the Acorn Eatery & Bar.
In 2001, Mr. Topacio joined John Paul Mitchell Associates, where his expertise in Commercial Real Estate and Multi Units sales along with Business Acquisitions, Sales and Venture Capital Investments continued to expand. To this day, it is his strong work ethic, gregarious personality, and deep-seated ties to the hospitality community that play a key role in Mr. Topacio’s thriving career. From this belief of hard work and customer service he and Carrie Field Topacio, wife and partner, began Vantage Commercial Partners in early 2009.
Mr. Topacio is a member of many organizations including: the Washington Restaurant Association, the Commercial Brokers Association, the Northwest Multiple Listings Association, and the American Culinary Federation. He is also honored to be a member of the Washington Liquor Control Board’s volunteer liquor task force.
