Occupancy Specialist

Related Management Company Boulder Full-Time
Apply Now

Affordable housing laid the foundation of Related Companies and we continue to place a high priority on developing, acquiring and preserving housing for this sector. In fact, over 60% of our 50,000+ residential apartment homes under our management are part of one or more affordable housing programs, and an additional 20% of these homes provide workforce housing.

In the area of acquisitions and refinancing, we pursue properties that meet one of the following criteria: Section 8 properties with project-based contracts; Section 236 properties in need of rehabilitation; Section 42 LIHTC properties with expiring low-income restrictions; Section 515 FmHA properties with loans that can be prepaid; or other assisted properties, including HODAG, HOME, federal or state-financed public housing.

Many of the buildings we encounter are in need of substantial upgrading and preservation in order to continue to properly fulfill the needs of their tenants. Given our 42 years of experience in debt and equity financing – as well as our extensive management of government-assisted properties – we are well positioned to buy out existing owners who lack the resources and experience to recapitalize and, therefore, wish to exit the affordable housing arena. In addition, with our extensive development experience, we bring the knowhow to expertly rehabilitate the units, thus assuring the continued viability of these projects for years to come.

In 1972, Stephen Ross founded Related Companies, known then as Related Housing Companies. From the beginning, Mr. Ross understood that only an experienced, multi-skilled team of professionals could drive the success of the complex, integrated real estate company he envisioned.

During the 1970’s Related took the lead in financing and developing government assisted multi-family housing for long-term investment. It was a unique concept at the time and still is today. Related soon became the leading financier and developer of affordable housing in the country. By the end of the decade, just eight years later, Related had raised over $40 million in equity to support more than 50 developments with a combined value of over $250 million.

In the 1980s, the company rapidly diversified and dramatically expanded the scope of its business and the range of its holdings. New projects included large-scale, market-rate multi-family developments as well as major metropolitan office and commercial properties. At the same time, the financial services arm grew considerably, becoming a major provider of debt and equity capital and managed over 50 private and public funds. The 1980s also brought a name change – from Related Housing Companies to Related Companies – in recognition of the company's substantial growth, new capabilities and expanded services. To take advantage of growing opportunities around the country, Related opened offices in Miami, Los Angeles and later, Chicago.
