Anthony initially studied design in college, and graduated with degrees in government and economics. He started his career in New York, working for real estate investors and developers, including in a position at NBC Facilities in 30 Rockefeller Plaza—where his life sometimes mirrored the TV show. He was recruited to join the company in 2014, and time has gone by in a blink.
Given the nature of the diverse portfolio and of the teams, every day means something different for Anthony. Whether he’s closing a big leasing deal, finding off-market acquisitions, or recruiting new team members, for Anthony, these are all ways of adding value to the company, and it's what gets him up in the morning.

“Washington REIT kind of feels like a real estate startup, even though this company has been around since 1961.

No one accepts the status quo here.”
