In this new series, we will be celebrating ten years of TCG by looking inwards to our Brokers that have made these ten years so successful. Tony Mangione is a Principal with TCG. We interviewed him to get insight on his beginning at TCG, what sparked his interest in CRE and his proudest accomplishments in his career…
- How long have you been working at TCG?
I have been working at TCG 10 years since its inception in 2011.
- What got you interested in CRE?
I fell in love with a girl who lived in Naples and she introduced me to Dan O’Berski. The rest is history.
- What was your first breakthrough lease/sale?
Little Caesars at the Bed Bath & Beyond Plaza on Airport & Pine Ridge in Naples. This was the first deal that I completed ‘cradle to the grave’ and it proved to be a springboard for my career. Although the deal only garnered a $3,000 commission it provided invaluable lessons for me from all the parties involved: Luis Velez at Little Caesars (Tenant), Clint Sherwood at IPC (Landlord Broker), Kristina O’Keefe & David Donato at Continental Realty Corporation (Landlord)
- What has been your biggest individual accomplishment working in CRE?
I don’t believe I’ve accomplished anything of significance individually, but as a team I’m proud of the influence and impact we have on client success, which is the only way that we measure our own
- What lease/sale are you most proud of?
I’m a deal junkie and proud of most all the deals I get to participate in; however, I’m particularly proud of a bundled branch consolidation/acquisition I was involved in that included property in my hometown of Grand Rapids and my backyard in Florida, which was mutually beneficial for both clients.
