Anthony Lolli - Author/Entrepreneur/Philanthropist & Real Estate Mogul
Anthony Lolli rose from humble beginnings to become a wildly successful real estate investor, developer, entrepreneur, and philanthropist.The son of an Ecuadorian immigrant and a first-generation Italian American WWII veteran-turned-schoolteacher, Anthony grew up poor in Brooklyn, NY. At 19, he obtained his real estate license. By 23 he was a millionaire.
It would not be an exaggeration to say that Anthony built Rapid Realty NYC with his own two hands. He started the company in a mixed-use building he had purchased in the heart of Brooklyn. Having spent all his savings on the building itself, he couldn’t afford to hire a contractor to renovate the property for him. Instead, he hired day laborers and rolled up his sleeves and went to work right alongside them, learning all they could teach him about construction along the way.
Now he is an investor, developer, consultant and works on mentoring young entreperneurs to help them succeed and take their business to the next level.
