The team, which will operate as Newmark Affordable Housing Advisors (NAHA), is led by Vice Chairmen and Co-Heads of Affordable Housing Andrew Daitch, Steven Miscavish, Seth Barnett and Matthew Kurzmann.

Under Daitch’s leadership, AHA achieved significant success. Miscavish has over 22 years of industry expertise and leads the underwriting team that reviews more than 1,500 affordable housing properties annually. Together with Miscavish and Daitch, industry veterans Barnett and Kurzmann will oversee transactions for the team. Barnett will continue to be responsible for sales in the Midwest, Mountain and Sunbelt regions while Kurzmann continues to lead New England, the Mid-Atlantic, and South-Atlantic regions. The team also includes Mason Campau, Ryan Moore, Ryan Warren, Neil Rosenthal, Jackson Ross and Gerson Askenazy, based in Detroit; Nick Affronti and Jeremiah Jarmin, based in Phoenix and Tyler Martin, based in San Diego.
