Multifamily might seem to be an easy asset class in which to make your mark. After all, it is characterized by low vacancy rates, strong and unrelenting demand and, in many markets, a steady but not overly saturated supply. But don’t be deceived, this category comes with its challenges and they take a real pro to navigate. On the following pages we look at the individuals, groups and companies that have made a difference in the space. They have forged new strategies, executed on well-laid plans, entered new markets and introduced novel concepts. As the multifamily market continues to evolve, watch these influencers to see what they do—they will surely be leading the way.

VICTOR AGUSTA, JR. As an SVP at Bellwether Enterprise, Victor Agusta, Jr. specializes in low-income housing tax credits, often working with some of the largest developers of tax credit housing in the country. Throughout his career, he has secured millions of dollars in loans for his clients, and with increasing demand for affordable housing across the country, the market is growing. Most recently, Agusta closed a $53 million loan for the renovation of the nearly 90-year-old Mark Twain Hotel in Chicago. It was a complicated deal that included combination of tax-exempt bonds, an FHA 220 loan, tax credit equity investments in low-income housing and historic tax credits, a bridge loan, a project-based voucher section 8 contract, an energy grant and a sponsor loan. The funds will be used to redevelop the Art Deco-style building, which will feature 148 affordable studios and 9,000 square feet of retail space for seven stores.
