Avison Young Adds Michael Albanese to Lead Expansion into IE Multifamily
Avison Young has added Michael Albanese as senior associate based in the firm’s Las Vegas and Ontario offices. He will be responsible for leading the Sauter Multifamily Group’s expansion into the Inland Empire multifamily market.
Albanese is an experienced commercial real estate professional with a strong track record in operations and brokerage. His previous role was with NAI as a leader of the multifamily group. Throughout his career, he has successfully managed an impressive portfolio of 3,500 units and supported some of the largest apartment owners in the country with their disposition strategies exceeding $300 million.
“We are very excited to have Michael join our team,” said principal Steve Nosrat of the Sauter Multifamily Group. “He brings 14 years of experience in the multifamily sector and the kind of tenacity that we’ve been searching for as we expand into new markets. With 170,000 units, close to 8,000 units under construction, proximity to our Las Vegas office, and the majority of our clients owning assets in both Vegas and the Inland Empire, the IE was a clear choice for our expansion.”
