I was born in Manhattan, New York and adopted at age 4 by Bruce and Nancy Gillooly who later moved my family to Cary, North Carolina when I was in 5th grade. I was class president of Cary High School in 1987 and went on to attend Louisburg College and NC State University to study Business Administration.
I now have over twenty years of experience as an entrepreneur and business leader managing multiple diverse companies.
My first business endeavor was the development and marketing of a fire retardant, Flame No More. As a high school student, I secured an investor to fund the product’s testing for the Underwriter’s Laboratory (UL) Seal of approval.
Later I opened one of the largest college night clubs in Raleigh, NC. While operating, I started Capital Style Luxury Transportation, Inc. in Cary, NC. Capital Style was recognized as the largest ground transportation company in NC for the last 3 years under my ownership by the National Limousine Association Magazine. Capital Style’s 33 vehicles provide ground transportation for over a quarter of a million people annually. NC Limousine Association voted me President in 2004 and 2005. I completed the sale of Capital Style Luxury Transportation June 2005.
My current focus is specializing in commercial and residential real estate development and sales throughout North Carolina. Currently I own my own and operate my own Real Estate Firm Gillooly & Associates Realty, LLC. I currently work in all areas of commercial and residential real estate from all price ranges including rentals for $800 per month to multi-million dollar transactions. I am a Realtor and a member of the National Realtors Association and TCAR Triangle Commerical Associates of Realtors. In conjunction I have a real estate development company AEG Investments, LLC. that specializes in residential, commercial and office development throughout North Carolina. As a real estate investor I understand both sides of the transaction. Apartment Developers of the Carolina’s, LLC. is a company which I am managing member and currently in the process of building 240 luxury apartments on Highway 55 By-Pass in Holly Springs, NC.
