NEW YORK, Oct. 21, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Greystone, a real estate lending, investment and advisory company, announced that it has added two senior multifamily sales advisory executives to its Real Estate Advisors group.

“Aaron and Eric are a powerhouse sales team that will complement Greystone’s ability to support clients with acquisitions and dispositions of affordable housing multifamily properties,” said McDevitt. “As we continue to build out the multifamily sales advisory group, affordable housing will serve as a key sector because we want to do everything we can to continue to support the stated Affordable Housing goals of our lending partners at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.”
