Our History

With the acquisition of First Sterling’s corporate fund syndication and asset management business, Regions is now able to offer our clients a larger suite of affordable housing solutions. Our combined commitment to the affordable housing industry spans over three decades and more than 1,300 properties in 45 states, Washington, D.C. and Puerto Rico.

Our industry experience and relationships with developers help our investors source LIHTC investments that work for them. In our long, combined history, we have consistently over-delivered both projected tax credits and yield.

Our Team

The Regions Affordable Housing team in Great Neck, New York; Atlanta, Georgia; Birmingham, Alabama and throughout the southeast, is greater than our individual parts, bringing an enhanced ability to meet the needs of developers and investors. Both Regions and First Sterling had decades of affordable housing experience prior to the acquisition, which brought together a dedicated team of affordable housing investment and lending professionals with the institutional strength of a Fortune 500 financial institution.
