Basin Street Properties Welcomes NavigateRE at Theatre Square in Downtown Petaluma

Basin Street Properties, a prominent real estate investment, development, and management firm, is pleased to announce NavigateRE has signed a lease at Theatre Square in Petaluma, California.

“We are excited to launch our new endeavor at Theatre Square, in the heart of downtown Petaluma,” said Don McDonald, CEO of NavigateRE. “The location connects us to the community and clients that we love so much and we’re just steps away from all that Petaluma has to offer.”

NavigateRE is a real estate company founded by Don McDonald and Donovan Schemke, who bring over 40 years of combined real estate experience to the table. Before establishing NavigateRE, they spent 17 plus years leading one of RE/MAX’s worldwide Top 10 Teams, known as “The Elite Partners.” Their goal in founding NavigateRE was to bring positive transformation to the real estate industry.

NavigateRE focuses on incorporating innovative technology into the real estate sector, aiming to streamline and simplify the transaction and marketing processes for both agents and consumers. The partners emphasize integrity, energy, hard work, and service in each transaction.

Theatre Square is a three-story mixed-use project located at the corner of Petaluma Boulevard and D Street, in the heart of downtown Petaluma’s Theatre District. The area offers a variety of boutiques and restaurants that feature open-air café seating in the plaza around a lovely fountain. It’s a lovely pedestrian-friendly environment next to the city’s only movie theater Boulevard Cinemas and the beautiful Petaluma River.

The Theatre District continues to thrive with a variety of restaurants, shopping and entertainment.  Seven delicious dining options at the square provide a tasty selection of styles and flavors.  EV bike retailer Petaluma Motor Wheel recently opened leaving only one ground floor vacancy at Theatre Square.

“Basin Street Properties is ecstatic to welcome NavigateRe to our Theatre Square property,” said Scott Stranzl, Chief Portfolio Officer at Basin Street Properties. “Theatre Square is an excellent spot for NavigateRe to grow as a company and continue to make a positive impact on Sonoma County real estate.”
