I focus on real estate transactions involving all aspects of affordable housing development, including the acquisition, financing, construction, and preservation of multifamily housing. The projects I work on typically involve mixed financing comprised of equity and debt funding sources. These projects typically receive low-income housing tax credits and tax-exempt bond proceeds, and many receive a combination of subordinate debt from federal, state, or local programs. I have also closed transactions combining low-income housing tax credits with new markets tax credits and historic rehabilitation tax credits.
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, as well as related HUD regulatory programs, including the transfer of an FHA-insured loan pursuant to HUD’s Transfer of Physical Asset (TPA) requirements and HUD approvals for the assignment of Section 8 contracts.
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.
My practice is focused on projects located in Massachusetts, New York, and the Washington, DC, area.
As the demand for multifamily housing continues to grow, developers and owners of multifamily housing are confronted with the challenges of finding new, creative ways to leverage public and private resources. Many federal, state, and local programs are devoting new resources to the development and preservation of affordable housing and the opportunity for developers who are able to successfully navigate the transactional and regulatory framework to access these resources is unprecedented. Additionally, as we continue to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, there is an increased recognition of the need for more affordable housing, which we look forward to working with clients and industry partners to bring to market.
