PRESIDENT AND FOUNDER

NICK SINATRA

In 2009, Nick Sinatra founded the real estate firm, Sinatra & Company Real Estate.  Its intention was to source and invest in value-add real estate opportunities in the Western New York region.  As a native of Kenmore, New York, Nick understood the local opportunities. Initial investments were in multifamily assets, but quickly grew to retail, office and mixed-use classes. Value-add projects broadened into development projects within the original geographic footprint, but also into California, downstate New York, and later Illinois. Nick remains the hands on manger of the company’s now $350 million in assets.  A graduate of Yale University, Nick also received his MBA in Real Estate Finance at the Wharton School of Business.  Prior to founding Sinatra & Company Real Estate, Nick worked in political affairs for Governor George Pataki and the Bush Administration.
