Every successful business is backed by an experienced and knowledgeable team. Laser-focused on your goals, let our expertise work for you.

Conrad Topacio

Designated Broker

Fifteen years in the hospitality industry, followed by over 30 years in the real estate field make Conrad an incomparable broker and Vantage co-owner.

His deep connections in the hospitality industry were seeded years ago as a restaurant chef and beverage director in San Francisco, Hawaii and Seattle. Knowing the ins and outs of the restaurant world started when Conrad worked in his family’s restaurant on Eastlake. His work ethic, engrained in him by his mom--a college professor, fueled his start in commercial real estate. He ascended at Imperial Real Estate to be one of Seattle’s top commercial real estate professionals and later joined Quorum Real Estate becoming a top producer. He soon combined his restaurant and real estate careers into a handful of successful ventures, including The Showbox, beloved neighborhood favorite, Acorn Eatery & Bar, and as partners at The Baltic Room.

Conrad broadened his scope in 2009 to co-found Vantage with his wife Carrie to serve clients in commercial real estate, multi-unit sales, and business acquisitions, investments, and sales.

Carrie Topacio

Broker

Carrie’s vibrancy, hospitality experience, and genuine match-making skills make her highly valued and sought after in the commercial real estate world. Her 20 years in Seattle’s hospitality industry honed her communication and management skills in key positions at Seattle’s premier private club, the Columbia Tower Club, Lisa Dupar Catering and the famed Space Needle. She transitioned those talents and later partnered with her husband, Conrad, on a number of business opportunities, instrumental as partner of the Baltic Room, co-owner/operator of the Acorn Eatery and Bar, and The Nutty Time Double Decker Bus. An active member of her community, Carrie was a founding member of the Crown Hill Chamber of Commerce and served as Vice President from 2004-2005. Later that year she became a Commercial Agent and teamed with Conrad, lending her extensive management training, organizational skills, and dynamic personality to the duo.

In early 2009, Carrie and Conrad forged a new chapter in their real estate career by founding Vantage. She is driven by helping clients transition to their next chapters and, ultimately, helping their dreams come true.
