TradeAddresses was founded in 1990 by a highly experienced group of San Francisco commercial real estate veterans. The TradeAddresses website has been generating commercial real estate transactions since 1999.
In 2009, Hans Hansson, of Starboard TCN decided to expand the site using a social media platform and combining commercial and high-end residential real estate listings within the same site. He enlisted Jim Osgood, the owner of the OfficeFinder.com and Carl Bosse, the owner of Associated Realty of the Americas-a network of high-end residential and commercial agents throughout North America-to partner together to reinvigorate TradeAddresses.
In 2015, TradeAddresses launched a new service called Trading Spaces that allows its members to search for off market properties and to trade their leases and their equipment and furniture to facilitate quicker moves at less costs.
