CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Allen McMurtry, senior vice president of Charlotte-based Grandbridge Real Estate Capital and longtime seniors housing investment sales broker, has retired after 35 years.
The Tampa, Florida native was an early entrant into the then-burgeoning seniors housing industry in 1987. Over the course of his career, McMurtry dedicated his work exclusively to the sale of seniors housing communities nationally, facilitating the sale over 200 properties across 35 states.
In 1984, McMurtry was a land broker in the Tampa Bay area. After a few years of facilitating such sales, including a proposed senior living development site, he quickly concluded specialization was the best path for servicing his clients.
In 2018, McMurtry became a full-time resident of North Carolina and began to transition his daily activities and sales efforts to his 20-year colleague and partner, Dave Kliewer, as well as Jay Jordan, who joined the team following nearly 10 years in senior living finance.
