In a career spanning over 35 years, Anno Domini Advisors founder Brian Dolehide has long specialized in senior housing. His involvement has included a variety of transaction sizes, such as a congregation parcel valued at $3,000 in Pueblo, Colorado. And he has been on the frontlines of large-scale transactions, including a $50 million transaction.
Most of his work is a confidential process and has been concentrated in and around Chicago, though his experience extends throughout the U.S. and Canada with numerous transactions in his portfolio.
A.D. Advisors is well positioned to engage in assignments in U.S. and Canada, delivering solutions alongside the likes of Marcus & Millichap, a top real estate brokerage firm for which Brian previously worked as its Seniors Housing team’s religious leader.
Marcus & Millichap partners with A.D. Advisors, and is especially proficient in affordable housing: the firm’s Affordable Housing Advisors has sold more than 200,000 government-subsidized housing units across the country that are valued at over $8 billion.
Anno Domini represents sellers of vacant land and underutilized property for which, in many cases, the highest and best use is either seniors housing or affordable housing. In particular, A.D. Advisors brings a wealth of experience in counseling clients on a range of adaptive re-use options.
In some instances, A.D. Advisors represents buyers that meet the criteria of religious sellers , including their desire to maintain a property’s religious heritage and legacy
Senior housing is often an ideal solution for a vacant school or religious monastery. These venerable buildings don’t need to be torn down—and A.D. Advisors has demonstrated time and again its expertise in adaptive re-use of existing 100-year-old religious structures.
In addition to preserving those institutions’ legacy through continued use of buildings that have a century-plus legacy, senior housing is one of the least disruptive uses for neighborhoods. Senior housing helps provide a seamless transition to serve a demographic that, with the aging of our nation, is steadily on the rise.
The community benefits when it gains affordable and market-rate senior housing that addresses this growing demand. At the same time, A.D. Advisors is expert in ensuring ministries attain the highest price that the marketplace commands.
A key to A.D. Advisors’ success in senior housing is its association with over 1,000 real estate professionals across the U.S. Each of those offices, under the Counselors of Real Estate banner, has specialists working a variety of real estate sectors, including senior housing, affordable housing, religious schools, religious churches, vacant land, and cemeteries.
