Douglas G. Sansone
Sansone Group Principal Since 1994

Doug Sansone started his career at Sansone Group working as a teenager at properties doing custodial and maintenance work. He joined the firm full time after earning his masters degree in 1994. Early during his leadership, Doug worked in brokerage and on development projects as well as oversaw the marketing and IT departments. His first major development he closed was The Promenade at Brentwood, a Target-anchored 350,000 SF retail power center in St. Louis.  

Doug works closely with the firm’s brokers on land deals and maintains close relationships with investors. Doug was integral in the formation of the multifamily development division which launched in 2022 and has over 16 projects in the pipeline. Finding new ways to continually grow and expand the business and strengthening the legacy of his father, Anthony F. Sansone, Sr. is Doug’s passion.
