The key to our success lies in the experience of our founder, Stephen Porras. Stephen's "hands-on" approach and depth of knowledge -- grounded in market realities - are the basis for his creative and insightful guidance.
Mr. Porras has amassed a 25-year track record in lending, investing, and developing affordable rental properties of every type utilizing complex, structured financing vehicles.
Mr. Porras' academic and professional background in architecture and urban planning gives him a solid basis for understanding the interplay between public policy, housing markets, and the built environment.
Mr. Porras' track record of successful developments from New York City to Los Angeles to Chicago has earned him the respect of his peers and a reputation for delivering quality work.
"Stephen is a diligent, detailed-oriented professional who is comfortable managing the most complicated development processes. His ability to remain focused on the "end game" is what makes him an excellent project executive where public/private partnerships are concerned. I would gladly trust the success of a several hundred million dollars project like Roosevelt Square to Stephen, again."
