WHO WE ARE

GHP was formed in early 2019 by Alejandro Lara and Geoff Anderson after working together as consultants for six years. Alejandro and Geoff partnered up with Jack Hollihan and Irwin Ackerman who also provide a breadth of real estate related experience and financial relationships.

Geoff  has a decade of multifamily residential development experience including but not limited to Asset Management, Underwriting Tax Credit/Bond Applications, HUD Contract Transfers (including straight acquisitions) of 22 properties with over 1,000 units for over $480 million in development costs. Geoff has excellent and strong relationships with numerous affordable housing agencies, lenders, investors, as well as architects, engineers, contractors, HUD attorneys, Tax Credit attorneys and other consultants. Geoff has successfully negotiated multiple transactions including partnership agreements, loan and bond documents and construction contracts for example.   Geoff has a BA from the University of Chicago and has completed several courses on HUD programs.

Alejandro has over 20 years of real estate development experience having previously worked at nonprofit community development corporations, private affordable housing consulting firms and as a real estate investment banker working on multi-billion-dollar mergers and acquisitions.  More recently, at a prior affordable housing development firm, Alejandro was responsible for the execution of all transactions including leading all interactions with investors, lenders, attorneys, and consultants. Alejandro was intimately involved in all aspects of the development process from negotiating the acquisition of a property to determining the scope of work and monitoring the contractors and consultants.  He created all of the firm’s development capacity and led the team in the development of 22 properties with over $480 million in development costs.  Many of these transactions involved multiple layers of financing having successfully closed each one of them while satisfying all of the requirements. Alejandro was also responsible for stabilizing every asset and making sure they are ready for the next 15 to 20 years of operations.  Alejandro has an MBA from the Anderson School at UCLA, an MPP from Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government, and a BA from the University of California, Berkeley. Alejandro currently sits on the board for Wellnest and was previously the Chair of the Community Advisory Board for Union Bank and was also a member of the Financial Advisory Committee for the City of Culver City.
