Anthony Kolich

~Managing Principal

Anthony Kolich, co-founder of Empire Residential LLC, is a third generation real estate owner and developer. Anthony is in charge of new stabilized acquisitions and all aspects of construction management. Starting at a young age, Anthony completed his fist residential spec development project in 1999, with great success, followed by several more within a short period of time. With that momentum, Anthony strategically invested in stabilized multi-family assets throughout Fairfield County, timing the market perfectly. Since then, Anthony has amassed a significant portfolio of his own, and looks to grow Empire Residential LLC outside of it's initial targeted comfort zone.
