Steve Holden graduated from the University of Kansas with a Juris Doctorate in 1975 and entered the private practice of law with an emphasis on commercial real estate specializing in long-term health care properties, and affordable housing developments. Holden, as Developer’s Counsel, has closed in excess of Two Billion Dollars in affordable housing including USDA-RD, HUD, and State HOME agencies in the Midwest including Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Tennessee, Kentucky, Arkansas, Mississippi, Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas. In 1992, Holden acted as Developer’s counsel for Longview Housing, Longview, Texas which completed and opened the first affordable housing rehabilitation in the nation with the use of Home funds.
Since the 1986 Tax Code Amendment, Holden has acted as Developer and Lender’s counsel in dozens of syndicated developments. Thirty years handling all aspects of affordable housing has given Holden the experience needed to identify and select the very best developers in the Midwest as well as the capacity to analyze the underwriting of each development. The structure for the investment is intended to provide the maximum assurance to the Investor by providing personal guarantees from the Developers and providing the compliance reporting which the Investors may not have in-house.
