Trent Frankum

Managing Director
Trent co-founded TFA in 2011 after spending nine years at CB Richard Ellis Philippines, with the final four years serving as the General Manager & Executive Director. Over the course of his time at CBRE, Trent juggled many responsibilities including: account management of the firm’s investment and tenant representation clients, liaising with the firm’s global offices for select accounts, delivering market presentations to various business groups, strategic business development endeavors, and building the investment advisory team, among others. Trent’s last two projects under his guidance at CBRE are a series of market studies and development consultancy for Bridgebury Realty, the owner of Zuellig Building, and the en bloc sale of 82 residential units at a high-end residential condominium in Makati.

Trent leveraged the knowledge gained over the first phase of his real estate career to lay the foundation for TFA, while establishing a clear set of values to follow daily that are in place to date. The addition of Kristine Tolentino, a highly skilled, well-rounded partner, in 2013, followed two years later by the hiring and development of Vincent Palec, who has become a sought after tenant representative in the Philippines office market, has further boosted TFA’s service offerings and commitment to our clients’ objectives.

Trent passed CFA Charterholder Level 1 while working full time at CBRE, before realizing that real estate is his career path. In 2014, he earned the prestigious CCIM designation (, and became the first person in the country to wear this designation.
