Sullivan started his career at CB Richard Ellis in 1986 and spent 10 years as an office specialist in central Orange County. In 1997, he was hired by Arden Realty, Inc., an institutional office real estate investment trust (REIT), to head up its Orange County and San Diego regions. Sullivan's responsibilities included asset management, property management, leasing, marketing and value enhancement of an approximate four million-square-foot mixed-use portfolio. He quickly achieved stabilization of the portfolio at 94.7% occupancy and was promoted to Vice President. Due to the success of his region, he won the attention of their president and COO and was selected to head up a Taxable REIT Subsidiary (TRS) that outsourced the company's expertise and services for the benefit of Arden's shareholders. In 2002, Sullivan co-founded Urban Infill Properties, Inc., a boutique real estate company specializing in the identification, acquisition, management and disposition of urban land for residential and commercial developments, adaptive re-use, new construction and investment.
"With more than two decades of commercial and residential real estate experience, Greg Sullivan instinctively knows the value of non-performing commercial assets and the underwriting requirements for the residential product that could potentially replace them. Additionally, Greg has the working knowledge of the General Plan Amendment and Zone Change processes giving him the expertise to structure these often more complicated transactions," says Tom Doyle, co-founder and principal at Whittlesey Doyle. "We are thrilled to have him on board."
Sullivan stated that Whittlesey Doyle is a natural step in his career providing him with data, information and support to better service his clients' needs. His clientele ranges from developers to individual investors, family trusts, institutional lenders, pension funds, and both public and private builders.
Sullivan graduated from Loyola Marymount University with a Bachelor's degree in Psychology and a minor in Business Administration. He is a licensed California Real Estate Broker and a resident of Newport Beach, Calif.
