For the past 20 years, Giovanni Oliva, Co-Founder and Managing Partner of GC Capital Holdings, has been managing investment portfolios consisting of real estate, commodities, and other hard assets exceeding over $150 million in transaction volume. Originally born in London, England to Italian parents, he moved to Los Angeles around 16 years ago. Most recently before returning back to the US in 2016, he had invaluable exposure to the global real estate markets where he tenured in cities such as London, Dubai, Milan, Barcelona, Sofia, and Sydney.
Outside of growing the firm’s acquisition efforts, Mr. Oliva is still in active commercial brokerage, where he specializes in investment sales of commercial property within the retail net lease sector of the real estate market, providing capital markets services to private investors, developers, and corporations on a national basis.
Mr. Oliva utilizes his understanding of current market cap rate trends, lease terms, tenant strength and rent/sale ratios, along with a depth of understanding of both the economic and geographical influences that help forecast pricing and valuations metrics on investment property.
His focus on each project is to maximize value and protect equity for his partners and investors. He advocates using technology to deliver a superior experience, while still focusing on the importance of the business of real estate being inherently about people and relationships.
