Ken Carriero is an industry veteran, responsible for overseeing the seniors housing practice group and the marketing of seniors housing assets. With 35 years of experience in seniors housing brokerage, he brings a wealth of knowledge to his assignments.

Prior to joining Marcus & Millichap, Ken was the owner of a brokerage company specializing in seniors housing.
Ken was instrumental in opening over 300 outpatient dialysis clinics, both domestically and internationally. In 1986 Ken sold his medical research and manufacturing company located in the northeast, moved to Florida and continued as a consultant providing site locations and CON’s for outpatient renal centers. Ken's background provided this career move to quickly advance into the brokering of healthcare properties. Eventually this led to seniors housing becoming a major component of his assignments. Since then, Ken has become an accomplished and outstanding broker in the seniors housing field and other medically related healthcare brokerage activities over the span of his career.

In October we closed on the sale of three of our assisted living facilities in Florida. The deal had more roadblocks, stumbling points, and obstacles to overcome, more than anyone involved can remember ever occurring in one transaction. It was truly a difficult deal, one that could have been derailed scores of times. Mr. Carriero never wavered in his commitment to see the deal through to completion. He consistently gave us solid advice, professional insight, and was the guiding force through innumerable problems. He was involved with all aspects of the deal and worked way beyond our expectations, way beyond the call of duty, day and night. His tireless work and Herculean efforts made the deal possible. We have no doubt that without his commitment to the deal we would not have made it to the closing table. Quite simply, Mr. Carriero made the deal possible. We believe that Mr. Carriero is the "World's Greatest Broker". In the future, whether buying or selling, we will work only with Mr. Carriero.
