FNRP

Our Story

Based in Red Bank, New Jersey, and led by co-founders Anthony Grosso and Christopher Palermo, First National Realty Partners (FNRP) has grown to become one of the fastest-growing commercial real estate private equity firms in the United States. We began with a vision to build a firm that focuses on creating tremendous value for every employee, vendor, partner, and tenant that comes into contact with our company. Our philosophy has always been to achieve a  “Win-Win” for everyone we associate with, from our tenants to our investors.

Our vision has only become stronger since our founding in 2015. We’ve invested countless hours and capital into building the world-class team, investment platform, and business processes required to achieve the results our investors deserve. Our continuing success is the culmination of dedicated teamwork that prioritizes investor interests throughout every stage of investment.

We are uniquely equipped to provide our investor-partners with best-in-class investment opportunities and white-glove service. We’re poised to offer our national-brand tenants access to exceptional markets. And we’re excited to be able to offer our team limitless career advancement and earning opportunities.
