Senior Vice President
Jeff specializes in the origination of financing for new construction developments as well as refinancing and repositioning of existing affordable multifamily housing projects for both seniors and families, and licensed residential healthcare facilities (i.e. assisted living and skilled nursing). Jeff’s focus includes identifying and structuring financing for project owners working under Bellwether Enterprise initiatives related to Affordable and Workforce Housing, and Public Housing Authorities converting under RAD. In 2011-2012, Jeff was a very early adopter of the RAD program for the preservation of public housing units and worked closely with other industry advocates and HUD in support thereof. Jeff has been a featured speaker and leading participant at conferences and workshops providing guidance, best practices and support for PHA’s seeking to convert with RAD their multifamily units.
Jeff assists project owners with increasing capacity to “preserve” and “green” their respective multifamily, senior and residential healthcare facilities. When Bellwether Real Estate Capital merged with Enterprise’s Multifamily Mortgage Business in 2012, Jeff was appointed senior vice president. Jeff leads these efforts from Bellwether Enterprise’s national FHA/HUD loan processing and underwriting offices in Duluth, GA.
Prior to joining Bellwether Enterprise, Jeff enjoyed 30-year career in real estate finance, specializing in the government insured/ guaranteed programs including HUD/ FHA, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and USDA Rural Development with emphasis on the HUD/FHA programs.
