Broker & Owner
Datta opened Main Street Realtors in 2003 to create the ideal environment of support for clients and agents alike, offering high-level service in sales, leasing, and property management. Highly active in representing his clients, Datta is respected as a top-tier professional in both residential and commercial real estate. In addition, he is one of only a few select brokers in the area adept in the handling of business opportunity sales, as a member of the California Association of Business Brokers (CABB).
In the wake of the economic downturn of 2008, and after years of building his own successful portfolio, he co-founded the Firmus Fund to provide accredited investors a diversified vehicle for their retirement assets, primarily in real estate and private equity loans. The fund represents the final facet to Datta’s uncommon capacity to assist his clients in every aspect of their real estate journeys, equally committed to their success and happiness with any project he takes on, no matter how large or small.
Datta is also deeply vested in the community, providing commentary and insight on real estate-related topics in his monthly column for the weekly newspaper The Good Times, in addition to hosting the public-access real estate show BTS Presents: Silicon Valley and Santa Cruz County Real Estate, Behind the Scenes, on Santa Cruz Community Television (SCTV). He finds these mediums an effective means to help him sustain and share his deeper sense of social and political conscience.
Datta has a love for tennis, yoga, and music, with a strong dedication to family and friends, and he enjoys rewarding home life with his wife Mari, their daughter Sibri and a houseful of animals including 2 blind cats and the family dog.
