    “Since I have been introduced to the Model Group, I have always been impressed with the work they do -- both affordable housing that is indistinguishable from market rate housing, and their condominiums and apartments in the Gateway Quarter ... our city is fortunate to have them as a partner. 

    They stand up for what is best for our community.”

    “A good Tax Credit developer must understand development, complicated tax issues, financing and how to maneuver through intricate details of government programs.

    I would consider Model Group to be among the best … understanding their market, which is the foundation for any good real estate developer. They bring a high degree of professionalism … by providing well-structured and high quality product to the funders.

    Both Eastside Revitalization and Academy Flats have been catalysts for stabilizing neighborhoods and in the case of Academy Flats, Model has created a beautiful landmark out of an abandoned school.”
