Tony Cordi, President/Broker

Tony formed The Innate Group in June of 2007 initially to help friends and family with their basic residential real estate needs and as a side gig to make a little extra money. Over time he has added a myriad of services and the company is now involved in all aspects of both residential and commercial real estate, property management, and business brokering. He has worked on hundreds of transaction sides and has had the privilege of working with clients from 30 countries.

He is a member of the National Association of Realtors, the California Association of Realtors, The South Bay Association of Realtors, and the California Association of Business Brokers. Tony recently served as a business columnist for The Easy Reader. His column, Business and Beaches, covered a wide array of topics in real estate and business in the beach cities of the South Bay.

Tony’s professional career spans 30 years. He earned his B.S. in Optics from the University of Rochester, a M.S. in Electrophysics from the University of Southern California, and a M.B.A. from the University of California, Los Angeles. He began as an engineer in the aerospace and defense industry working on a number of advanced technology programs. He would later become a management consultant for a then Big 5 consulting firm and a business development director for an international boutique consulting firm doing work in 54 countries. He has owned businesses in the manufacturing, retail, technology, and hospitality industries. Tony takes pride in his extensive work with charities and local governments, which have earned him several letters of appreciation over the course of his career.

Tony’s clients range from small family-owned businesses to national credit tenants in a range of industries in the United States and in Europe. He has represented buyers and tenants from 30 countries.

The city of Hermosa Beach Economic Development Committee sought business leaders and representatives to serve on their Stakeholder Advisory Group in July 2020. Tony was selected to participate because of his experience in different geographic areas and industries across the city.

“The service and personal attention I received from Tony was second to none. I could not have been more pleased about how Tony navigated me through a very complex escrow to completion. His professionalism and knowledge of the local market, coupled with his attention to detail and his genuine passion for his profession, made me feel that Tony always had my best interest in mind.”

Bret S. / Manhattan Beach, CA

“Mr. Cordi has helped me put together multiple deals in the South Bay, big and small. He has a great mind for business, a sharp eye, and is the most knowledgeable guy I’ve met in regards to South Bay businesses and real estate.”

J.M. / Hermosa Beach, CA

“As first time restaurateurs, we saw Tony as a guiding light for us when it came to many parts of the process we were unfamiliar with. His expertise and advice in areas such as the purchasing of our business, transferring of liquor license and even to the lease negotiations came in extremely helpful. The whole process was without a doubt smoother because of Tony’s guidance and advice. Should we be fortunate enough to open a second restaurant, we have Tony on speed-dial.”

Brian K. / Hermosa Beach, Redondo Beach, CA

“I am always impressed with the level of service I receive when I do business with you Tony.

It was so important, I do not think we could have closed without his guidance and experience. The client is ecstatic about fulfilling his dream purchase in Manhattan Beach, and I am so lucky to have had Tony be the listing agent to help in every step of the way with his knowledge and friendly guidance. Thank you Tony!!”

Luis G. / Manhattan Beach, CA
