What Others Are Saying About Us

Gorman Management Company (GMC) is a legacy Section 8 owner/manager in Oklahoma that was established in 1978.  We were introduced to CCA through Ben Etheridge in 2012 and closed our first two 9% LIHTC deals that year.  Since then, we have closed an additional nine deals that are a mix of for-profit and non-profit owned properties (and three in process).  Most of our deals are complicated and require expertise in all levels of affordable housing (HUD, LIHTC, FNMA, etc.).  CCA has brought expertise as our development partner to all of these deals that was essential to their success.
