Senior Transaction Manager

Donna Ransom has more than three decades of experience as a real estate professional working in land banking, homebuilding acquisition, commercial project management, and master planned community land development. She brings a diverse, well-rounded perspective to the Tower Capital, LLC team.

Prior to joining Tower Capital in 2017, Ransom spent four years at CDCG Asset Management, LLC as managing entitlements, development, and lot disposition for its nearly $1.5 billion land bank investments. Immediately prior to that position, she worked as a senior project manager at Evergreen Devco, where she managed the development of multiple neighborhood market stores including entitlements, due diligence, design, permitting, and budgeting on behalf of Fresh & Easy in Southern California.

Ransom started her real estate career at SunCor Development where she managed public-private infrastructure and subdivision improvements bidding, construction documentation, contractor lien compliance, insurance compliance, and assisted with budgeting and forecasting for approximately 11,000 acres in Palm Valley, Arizona. Her responsibilities later expanded and included residential and commercial entitlement processing (including general plan and planned area development amendments), negotiating, and documenting intergovernmental agreements, rezoning various properties, creating and administering master signage plans, creating and monitoring design guidelines, and identifying and obtaining various development related easements. She gained experience with public presentations before City Council, planning and zoning, as well as design review committees while obtaining entitlement approvals. She also managed title review and resolution for a 350-acre master planned community.

That “developer experience” allowed Ransom to move into the home building industry with Engle Homes. She was responsible for due diligence and land feasibility assessments as the Arizona Division’s operations expanded from 500 to 2,000 annual homes sales. Her responsibilities included the preparation and submission of appropriate documentation (including financial feasibility analysis and project risk assessment) to the Corporate Asset Management Group as well as regional oversight on land bank option and construction agreements.

Ransom earned a bachelor’s degree in Design from Arizona State University School of Architecture’s renowned Housing and Urban Development Program.
