Edward K. Sentivany, Jr., ( CRE Retired)

Ed Sentivany has had over 40 years of commercial real estate and finance experience as an institutional lender, capital markets advisor and consultant.  Ed is a retired member of The Counselors of Real Estate*, a professional membership organization established exclusively for leading property advisors.


Ed holds a BS Degree in Real Estate from the University of Connecticut, one of the country’s leading real estate schools.  He has been an institutional lender for the first 20 years of his career, having run the real estate departments for several large New England banks.  He has also been responsible for loan servicing and commercial lending for some of those banks.  The Governor of the State of Connecticut appointed Ed to the Board of the Connecticut Housing Financing Authority where he was later elected Chairman and served in that capacity for several years.  Ed also became the exclusive advisor to six New England banks, providing commercial real estate and commercial lending expertise to the banks both individually and collectively. 


Ed founded his first capital markets company in Hartford, Connecticut in 1985.  In the late 1980’s, Ed became a workout consultant to both borrowers and lenders due to the severe real estate recession, especially in New England.  He relocated his company to Boston, Massachusetts in 1991 when he was recruited by Prudential to become its exclusive advisor with regard to its PruExpress loan program for the northeast.  In 2008 he relocated to the Charlotte, North Carolina area.
