Prior to joining Colliers National Seniors Housing Group, Damien Carriero was a Regional Director for one of Florida’s largest providers of Medicaid Diversion. He was responsible for identifying and recruiting new providers as well as negotiating contracts, training, retention, monitoring, and supporting providers in the network. He also developed new provider network areas and worked closely with the Department of Elder Affairs and AHCA to ensure providers complied with regulatory laws.
Damien Carriero graduated from the University of South Florida with a degree in Finance. His last semester was spent overseas in China, focusing on international marketing and finance. While attending the University of South Florida, he worked as an intern with Marcus & Millichap Real Estate Investment Services where he enhanced his underwriting skills and passion for real estate. After graduating he was invited to join Marcus & Millichap’s Sales Intern program. Damien worked with a senior broker in a mentee/mentor capacity. This process usually takes approximately two to three years to complete before individuals are considered qualified to be given Sales Agent status. Damien was able to complete the entire process within two years. After only one year of becoming a Sales Agent, he was presented the Marcus & Millichap’s Rookie of the Year Award.

I had the distinct pleasure of working with Damien on a $31 million Class "A" Seniors Housing portfolio in Georgia. Damien's skill at underwriting the assets and locating hidden value and potential upside for the Buyer were greatly appreciated by all the parties involved. Damien is a competent, composed and very effective professional who knows the Seniors business and knows people.
