dasMOD is a boutique, bold, innovative, design-forward real estate development firm. dasMOD acquires land, distressed, and income-producing residential, multi-family, hospitality, and mixed-use properties that are well-located in local, niche markets primarily in San Diego county. Their two principals: Erik Gilmer & Sven Simon, have vast experience in various aspects of real estate and finance.

PRESS & MEDIA: Our charge is to obtain press and media coverage of all projects. The result? We received coverage in 7 International Publications & Design Blogs for a total of 13 articles highlighting work. Here are a few:




EVENT PRODUCTION for VIA TIEMPO: Our duties included creating a cutting-edge Pre-Market Preview Party for this amazing home. We gathered top real estate and design professionals for an evening of cocktails, conversation and a live Surf Rock Band, while providing tours of the home with dasMOD owners, their partners in architecture, interior design and vendors used throughout the home.

**Via Tiempo sold within 72-hours to an agent with a client who attended the party; they made a full price all-cash offer. The project was the highest price per square foot east of Interstate 5.




EVENT PRODUCTION for CLEARVIEW included an evening promoting and showcasing the home to North County's premier real estate and design professionals, as well as introducing the project to the neighbors and local community. Our invitation reach extended deep into Hollywood which included producers and entertainment lawyers to further develop a brewing partnership for dasMOD projects outside of the San Diego coast. The project included a LIVE, on-the-fly Web-Video Interview with co-founder, Erik Gilmer, talking about dasMOD's latest project (below).
