Anthony Borghi (Tony) began his real estate career in 1986 as one of the founding Principals of Avalon Partners (now Cresa Partners) in Boston, a corporate real estate advisory firm specializing in long-term strategic financial planning and transaction negotiations for major multi-national corporations.
After 10 years of playing a key role in the growth of the company, Tony acquired a 50% interest in Boston Waterfront Realty, a residential real estate brokerage firm, which became the premier and then exclusive affiliate of Sotheby’s International Realty in Boston. After aggressively expanding the operation over the next three years to include five offices, the company was sold to NRT (presently, Realogy) of New Jersey and ultimately became Coldwell Banker, Boston.
Tony formed Endeavor, Inc. in 1999 specifically to fund short-term, special situation commercial real estate loans throughout New England. Over the next 11 years, he created three different real estate investment funds and privately financed over $100 million in commercial real estate transactions that included such diverse projects as ski and golf resorts, residential sub-divisions and condominiums, medical facilities and multiple land acquisition projects requiring infrastructure development. In 2010, Endeavor and Capital Trust merged after participating together in completing numerous complex, special situation real estate loans for major developers and investors as well as companies requiring working capital credit access during the financial crisis.
Tony received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Finance from Boston College and a Master of Science Degree from Boston University’s College of Communication.
The Principals bring to the table a combined experience of more than 50 years in the real estate finance business and have transacted more than a billion dollars in financings for developers and investors throughout New England and Florida. Endeavor is New England’s largest private real estate lender and offers nonconventional lending options to builders, developers, and investors needing quick access to cash when conventional lending sources are unwilling to extend credit.
