Conservation Land Group
Since 1995, Conservation Land Group (CLG) has specialized in structuring and completing conservation real estate transactions, including conservation easements, on behalf of private landowners, non-profit land trusts and foundations, mitigation purchasers, and public land management agencies.
CLG acts as a real estate broker, consultant or strategic advisor for buyers and sellers of natural resource properties in California, including working farms, range and timber lands, endangered species habitat, wetlands, coastal properties, trail and river corridors, wilderness inholdings, and cultural/historic sites.
CLG has a proven track record of completing complex conservation real estate projects in a timely manner and ensuring that its clients' personal, financial and/or organizational goals are accomplished.
Over the last fifteen years, Debra Geiler has negotiated the acquisition of 35,000 acres of conservation lands valued in excess of $200 million. Debra achieved these successes working closely with landowners and interested stakeholders - negotiating and managing complex conservation real estate transactions to completion.
With a childhood spent in the outdoors, a law degree, and experience in real estate development, she brings both a passion for preserving natural areas and the professional skills and business acumen needed to realize that vision, often in contentious settings. Prior to joining CLG, Debra served as the Southern California Director for the Trust for Public Land and worked in the real estate development field. She earned her Juris Doctorate from the University of California Hastings College of Law and her B.S. from California State University at Sacramento.
