There is a big misconception of affordable housing in this day and age, Evan Holladay is going to clear up how it works and the benefits of the working class. He also gives us a boots on the ground view of his company and how he himself and his staff go about acquiring property and how acquiring that property allows them to give back to surrounding areas. Affordable housing isn’t the only topic of discussion on this episode, we also got the chance to pick his brain about current real estate markets and hear his thoughts on the broad view of the near future.
A little bit about our guest,
Evan found his passion for real estate while at the University of Louisville, working for a developer on a $55 million student-housing mixed-use development. From there, he and a group of others started a modular development company that focused on taking houseboat manufacturing plants and refitting them to build modular, energy-efficient and mixed income multifamily housing. This is where he found his passion for providing quality attainably priced communities for working class families. He then went on to work alongside one of the top affordable housing developers in the country & realized his desire to make a bigger impact by including community empowerment, sustainability & impact investing.
