The Boulder Group has closed over $4B worth of deals, and it is marketing properties in at least 15 states. It also has a research arm that puts out reports on the net lease market. An Illinois native, Blankstein received his bachelor’s degree from the University of Colorado at Boulder’s Leeds School of Business in 1991.
