Greystone’s Tanya Eastwood Named a Top Woman in Affordable Housing Finance for 2019
Greystone is pleased to announce that Tanya Eastwood, president of Greystone Affordable Development, has been named one of the leading women in affordable housing in the March 2019 issue of Affordable Housing Finance.
“Tanya is tremendously committed to serving the residents of affordable housing across the U.S. by orchestrating the financing and redevelopment of aging housing stock in these areas,” said Stephen Rosenberg, founder and CEO of Greystone. “Her heart is focused on helping people receive updated, functioning homes, and strengthening our country’s most vulnerable populations.”
“I’m thrilled to be a part of a list with such incredible women in this industry,” said Tanya Eastwood. “While it can be easy to get caught up in the daily grind, at the end of each transaction, we’re helping someone have a home.”
Tanya Eastwood has worked in multifamily real estate since 1989, specifically in development, management, fiscal analysis and asset management. As the president of Greystone Affordable Development, she assists owners and developers in meeting the complex challenges associated with the recapitalization, rehabilitation and preservation of affordable housing across the United States.
Tanya and her team specialize in sourcing creative solutions to complex preservation transactions involving HUD, USDA, and other state and federal agencies. She has facilitated the preservation of approximately 240 of USDA’s existing RD 515 properties across the country, with another 175 properties in various stages of redevelopment.
Prior to joining Greystone, Tanya was executive director of WAJ Management, LLC where she directed the asset management of LIHTC, HUD, and USDA sites located throughout North Carolina. And for more than a decade, she served as regional vice president of development for Forest City Residential Group, where she focused on urban development and adaptive re-use of multifamily sites throughout the eastern U.S.
