Gus originally hails from Del Mar, California, but spent some time as a child living in Washington, D.C.. He also lived in Charlottesville, Virginia while studying history and business administration at the University of Virginia. Gus is joining Charter School Capital after having spent three years in asset management and acquisitions where he’s developed critical relationships with various tenants, brokers, and developers across the country. His most recent work in commercial real estate was at Realty Income Corporation, a real estate investment trust in San Diego that invests in free-standing, single-tenant commercial properties in the United States.
Because Gus comes from a family of teachers (wife, mom, and aunts), the opportunity to combine his passion for commercial real estate with a company that provides support for teachers and students was incredibly attractive. He was excited at the chance for he and his wife to relocate to Portland, a city where he had family (the in-laws), the incredible restaurant scene it offers, and a climate that is more suited to their two seven-year-old Siberian huskies, Charger and Luna. In his spare time, Gus enjoys hiking with Charger and Luna (they’re regulars now at Mt. Tabor Park), playing tennis, watching UVA football and basketball, exploring Portland, brewing beer, and cooking.
