What Others Are Saying About Us

“RPS engaged CCA in 2005 to assist in the disposition of RPS’s affordable housing portfolio, which consisted of over eighty properties, located throughout the country. The successful conclusion to our portfolio disposition is in large part attributable to Ben and David and their team at CCA. Though faced with a multitude of problems, including properties with extensive deferred maintenance, difficult regulatory agencies and severely distressed financial markets, CCA brought resolutions to our issues that were consistently satisfactory to all parties concerned. The depth and scope of CCA’s expertise in the many facets of the affordable housing industry proved invaluable. It has been a privilege and a pleasure to work with such a group of professionals.”
