Max Sharkansky, co-founder of Trion Properties, oversees all aspects of acquisition, disposition, and property analysis for Trion Properties. Since founding Trion Properties, Max has led the acquisition, renovation and disposition of over $100,000,000 in mismanaged and distressed assets, primarily in multifamily, yielding an average IRR in excess of 30%. Max launched the foray into investments with two acquisitions of value-add multifamily properties in 2005. Following the first two closings, Max, along with partner Mitch Paskover, created the platform and formed the Company in 2006 to execute a business plan of acquiring mispriced and mismanaged properties throughout Los Angeles. Max led Trion in the execution of several acquisitions in its first two years of existence and exiting the portfolio prior to the economic crisis. With cash on hand and no resources tied up in workouts, Max assisted in implementing an acquisition strategy of targeting distressed debt secured by multifamily, and distressed multifamily REO's, which led to the ultra-successful campaign of the acquisition of 20 properties throughout the downturn. Since the recovery and the clearing of distress from the marketplace, Max has shifted strategies to the acquisition of value-add properties where value can be created through extensive renovations, hands-on management, and improvement of operating efficiencies.
Prior to co-founding Trion Properties, Max was a Senior Associate at Marcus & Millichap from 2002 through 2006. While at Marcus & Millichap, Max managed the sale of several million dollars in real estate throughout the continental United States, specifically in the multifamily arena, elevating him to one of the top-ranking brokers in Los Angeles, California.
