Joseph Molinaro founded the firm in 1959, and since then Molinaro Koger has successfully marketed hotel real estate, sponsored limited partnerships, and arranged financing for purchasers.

We are able to serve our clients best interests regardless of economic highs or lows,” says President Robert Koger. “The results we achieve are directly attributable to the commitment and expertise of our professional staff.”
