Founding Partner in New York
With over two decades of experience in real estate and finance, Sonny Kalsi is the consummate investment professional. Prior to founding real estate investment management firm GreenOak Real Estate, he spent 18 years at Morgan Stanley, where he worked his way up the ranks to become the Managing Director and Global Head of the Real Estate Investment division.
At Morgan Stanley, Sonny oversaw private equity real estate investing which included staff of over 1,000 professionals, and played a pivotal role in building the division into the leading real estate platform. Ultimately, Sonny and his team were responsible for the management of $100 billion in assets across 33 countries.
Though Sonny Kalsi never tired of global investing, expanding into new markets, or living and working in diverse cities and cultures, he had always wanted to be an entrepreneur and take on the challenge of starting his own company. As such, he left to go out on his own–no easy task in a greatly shrunken market dominated by a handful of massive multinational corporations.
