What do you focus on?

Affordable Housing Transactions

I focus on real estate transactions involving the financing, construction and preservation of affordable housing. I assist clients in various aspects of the acquisition and disposition of multifamily properties, including mixed financing with tax-exempt bonds, low-income housing tax credits and other federal, state and local government subsidies.


My experience in closing hundreds of multifamily real estate transactions insured by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), including construction, acquisition and refinancing loans utilizing multiple financing structures, gives me substantial knowledge and understanding of the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) insurance programs, including Sections 207, 221(d)(4) and 232.

Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac

I am also experienced in acquisition and refinancing loans to be purchased by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, including both market rate and affordable transactions.

What do you see on the horizon?

As the demand for multifamily housing continues to grow, developers and lenders are confronted with the challenges of finding new, creative ways to leverage public and private resources.
