Julie Hancock Stande represents developers, landowners and investors in all aspects of commercial real estate transactions.
I assist owners and developers on several aspects of the acquisition and disposition of multifamily properties, including developments financed with low-income housing tax credits and historic tax credits. I recently assisted a client in refinancing a 570-unit multi-phase affordable housing development in Brockton, Massachusetts. Additionally, in the multi-family sector, I work on dispositions for a top asset manager for institutional investors, selling its investments in affordable housing communities financed with low-income housing tax credits, and negotiate purchase and sale agreements for the sale of the limited partner interests.
I have assisted institutional investors with their investments in assisted living and skilled nursing properties and portfolios and have also represented developers and owners in acquiring, selling, and master leasing assisted living and skilled nursing developments. I recently worked on a transaction representing an institutional owner in a large multi-state workout of a master-leased portfolio of skilled nursing facilities.
I work with clients on various other general real estate matters, including purchase and sale agreements, real estate joint ventures, title and survey review and zoning matters.
The Commonwealth of Massachusetts has a continuing need for more affordable housing. The Massachusetts governor has committed to producing more multifamily housing units by 2020. I look forward to working with the developers on these important projects.
