As we continue our employee milestones series this year, we are proud to spotlight Alejandro Michelsen, Investment Director in Spain.

Throughout his time at Greystar, he has helped expand the business across the region and into other global markets. Join him as he shares more about his journey with us.


What attracted you to Greystar?

"The recent entry into the Spanish market following the RESA acquisition, combined with the opportunity to join a relatively small team within a well-established, US-headquartered company looking to expand in Europe, created an exceptionally attractive career opportunity for me. Furthermore, Greystar appeared to be a people-oriented organisation with highly skilled professionals in key roles with a clear progression in the company, showcasing the company's commitment to employee development. This combination of dynamic market expansion, supportive work environment, and a team of talented individuals made the prospect of joining Greystar particularly compelling for me."

What keeps you at Greystar?

"Greystar has rapidly evolved to become a leading player in the European and Spanish living markets. Establishing Greystar's name at the top has been a significant challenge, requiring strategic vision, dedication, and innovative approaches. However, maintaining this leadership position is equally demanding, necessitating continuous adaptation and excellence in execution. Working alongside local teams and international colleagues has been highly rewarding, as it offers invaluable opportunities to collaborate with diverse and talented professionals. This collaborative environment not only enhances personal and professional growth but also contributes to sustaining Greystar’s esteemed reputation."

“It is truly fulfilling to be part of a team where mutual respect and diversity are deeply ingrained in the company culture.”

- Alejandro Michelsen, Investment Director in Spain


How would you describe Greystar’s culture?

"Greystar is a people-oriented company, a quality that is evident in every day-to-day meeting and investment committee. As a vertically integrated platform, we collaborate with a wide range of teams across the real estate lifecycle, fostering an environment of innovative solutions and ideas. This certainly differentiates Greystar from a typical investment management firm."

What are you most looking forward to about Greystar’s future?

“In my opinion, the future looks promising. We continue to move forward with our pan-European strategy in an asset class that has proven to be resilient and sustainable over time. Our previous accomplishments lay a solid foundation for future growth and I am excited about the prospect of expanding the southern European platform with more best-in-class living assets. The journey ahead is filled with potential, and I look forward to contributing to our continued success."
