CP Capital Co-Head Kristi Nootens has been recognized by GlobeSt.com. as one of their CRE Fifty Under 40. Her hard work, dedication, and resilience do not go unnoticed and we are so proud of all that she has accomplished. Congratulations Kristi and to all the honorees on this well-deserved achievement!
Conversations about the intricacies of real estate were common in the Nootens household when Kristi Nootens was growing up. Her dad was a mechanical engineer at a large REIT and her mom was a property manager. This foundation inspired her interest in the CRE industry at a young age. Her first job was at Boston Properties, where she helped manage 1.8 million square feet of office and retail space at a trophy mixed-use town center. Working at a vertically-integrated owner, operator and developer exposed Nootens to many different sides of the industry. She joined CP Capital in 2012 as a senior analyst and was promoted to VP of investment management, where she was responsible for sourcing new investments and managing a team of junior analysts. With only one other VP on the investment team at the time, Nootens’ coverage area consisted of half of the country. She built a consistent track record of ensuring smooth investment processes — from underwriting to closing, through construction and lease-up to disposition of the asset. During the past three years, CP Capital has announced 10 joint-ventures with best-in-class development and management partners, four of which were secured by Nootens, resulting in 1,205 multifamily rental units being delivered in several target high-growth markets. Upon being appointed co-head last year, Nootens now jointly manages day-to-day operations and leads the firm’s investment strategies alongside CP Capital veteran Paul Doocy. She has been invited back to her alma mater, the University of North Carolina, on multiple occasions to be a guest lecturer for its MBA program’s capstone real estate development courses. She also is a mentor for CP Capital’s corporate partnership with Project Destined – an education platform that trains underserved youth for careers in the real estate industry.
