NEW YORK CITY – As the investor appetite for retail condominiums shows no sign of abating, Eastern Consolidated has brought aboard another professional to expand its Retail Sales Group led by Senior Director Adelaide Polsinelli.

Carlos G. Olson (31) has joined the firm as Associate Director. Previously he was at Massey Knakal Realty Services where he focused on the sale of properties in SoHo, NoLita, Hudson Square, Little Italy and Chinatown. During his tenure, he brokered a total of 15 transactions valued at more than $162 million.  Notable sales included the 11-building Bowery Portfolio for $62 million, 100 Vandam for $27.5 million and 224 Mulberry for $26 million.

“We are delighted to welcome Carlos to the Retail Sales Group,” said Daun Paris, President of Eastern Consolidated.  “He has a strong background in commercial property investment sales and given that so many of our investors come from Latin America and other Spanish-speaking countries, having a native speaker on our team is always a distinct advantage.”

Before Massey Knakal, Mr. Olson co-founded Firm Inmobiliaria in Guadalajara, Mexico, a residential and commercial real estate brokerage that handled the sale and leasing of properties and development sites locally, in Puerto Vallarta and Tapalpa Mexico. And earlier, he worked as sales manager for Livorno Towers, a residential development in Guadalajara, and prior to that as a sales director for Homex Development Corporation, overseeing the sales team for Torres del Rio a newly-constructed five-tower 200-unit residential apartment complex in Sinaloa, Mexico.

He earned a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from the Universidad Panamericana, Guadalajara Mexico.  An avid skier, triathlon, hockey, golf and sailing enthusiast, Mr. Olson resides in SoHo.
