40 Under 40: W. Kyle Tangney
What is your most notable project, deal or transaction? Representing WCSmith and Alden Torch in the sale of Worthington Woods, a 394-unit property in Washington, D.C. Besides being able to represent two clients I have admired and respected from the start of my career, it is one of the 10 largest single asset sales in the District over the last five years. How do you contribute to your company and / or the industry? Since the Greysteel’s launch, I have had an active role in the company’s Executive and Steering Committees, holding both the Chairman and Secretary positions over my tenure. I have been able to develop the company’s infrastructure, assist in forming new practice groups, launching new offices along with overseeing employee and agent mentorship. It is important for me that we strive to better our people and ourselves every day. Tell us how and when you began your career in the profession you are in, about your current position and why you choose the field/profession you are in today? I began my real estate investment sales career in the depths of the great recession when a former mentor of mine introduced me to Ari Firoozabadi, now CEO of Greysteel. I was taken by our ability to appropriately guide our clients in ways to add value to their properties, provide time sensitive analysis and deliver market insight. As the Managing Director for the D.C. Investment Sales Group, I look for our team to deliver the highest level of service and insight to our clients.
