About Justin Giallonardo
There is nothing more important to Justin Giallonardo than loving his family and being an engaged member of his community; when he says he loves spending time with the people he loves, Justin means it. Justin is the youngest son of Thomas Giallonardo III, founder of D’Argent Companies, where Justin works as D’Argent’s President of Real Estate.
Justin Giallonardo began working with D’Argent in 2007 when he joined the team as a Field Representative. That same year, he enrolled at Louisiana State University in Alexandria and studied business administration, management, and operations. It was always Justin’s intention to work for the family business, and he attended LSU for two years to get some basic courses behind him before enrolling at the University of North Texas in 2009. Here, he was a member of the Real Estate Club and the Student Investment Group, and he earned his Bachelor of Business Administration in Real Estate in 2011.
While earning his degree in 2011, Justin stepped into the role of Project Manager with D’Argent, and – in 2011, when he was just 23 years old – Justin Giallonardo became one of the youngest recipients of the prestigious CCIM (Certified Commercial Investment Member) designation in the nation. Justin later stepped into the role of Development Manager before becoming the Vice President of Business Development. Two years later, Justin became the President of Business Development, and in 2019, he moved into his current position as President of Real Estate.
Throughout his life, Justin Giallonardo has been an active member of several Central Louisiana community, professional, and business organizations. He was involved as a volunteer with Kiwanis International, a Board Member for the Central Louisiana Regional Chamber of Commerce, an Event Volunteer for Rotary International, a Leadership Board President for the Young Professionals Group of Central Louisiana, and a State of Louisiana Board Member for the CCIM Institute.
Justin has also been involved with the River Oaks Square Arts Center, the Rapides Symphony Orchestra, the Boys and Girls Club of El Camino Real, Court Appointed Special Advocates for Children, United Way Worldwide, and Rapides Parish Fire Protection. He has also served as a Board Member of the Rapides Workforce Development Board, focused on economic empowerment.
