Chevy Chase, MD


Federal Capital Partners® (FCP) congratulates Vice President of Asset Management, Nikita Rao, on being named one of 2014’s “Stars to Watch” by Commercial Property Executive (CPE). This year, CPE selected 15 achievers under 40 years of age from around the industry, “men and women making waves in brokerage, investment, development, finance and other areas of commercial and multi-family real estate.”

Ms. Rao is responsible for the management and implementation of business plans, financial analysis and strategies for FCP’s investments. She participates in strategic development of timelines, budgets and processes and is responsible for supporting and managing the development, sales and marketing processes as well as third party vendors.

In the past two years, she designed and implemented FCP’s customized proprietary asset management system. She also managed the lease up of the Allegro, a luxury apartment building in downtown Washington, DC that was purchased out of foreclosure by FCP in 2009, and then oversaw the 2012 sale of the building. The transaction was one of the most lucrative sales in the company’s history and regionally recognized as one of the top deals of the last several years.
