In Real Time – Season 2 Ep. 6 | Our roots in multi-family residential


At QuadReal, we don’t just build and manage properties; we provide and manage spaces for many to call home. Dean Holmes, SVP, Residential Operations, didn’t grow up with a resolution to build a career in this industry, unlike Anthony Lanni, EVP, Residential, who grew up in the family business. His childhood memories were synonymous with construction PPE and the smell of lumber. From wherever and however the story of our roots is told, commercial real estate is a welcoming industry to start and develop a fulfilling career.

In this episode, Dean Holmes and Anthony Lanni join Dat Huynh to share their personal stories and their parts in the evolution of QuadReal’s residential portfolio. They provide insights on what our commitment to being best-in-class looks like when we anticipate and prioritize what our residents need. As our world constantly changes, so too do the needs and expectations of our residents—and our role as a responsible, forward-thinking landlord.
