Pharrah Jackson was named Vice President, Originations, for Greystone’s Affordable Lending Team in 2022 and today originates multifamily housing loans focusing on affordable housing. In her role, she drives the construction, refinancing and recapitalization of affordable housing across America through short-term bridge loans, bridge-to-agency and permanent financing solutions, FHA lending and tax-exempt bond-financed transactions.

During her Greystone tenure, she has financed over 1,000 affordable housing properties totaling more than $8.5 billion in debt. During 2022, Jackson was involved in creating or preserving 802 units of affordable housing across ten properties, totaling $55 million in permanent loan debt. One deal focused on the origination of $15 million in total Freddie Mac financing for a 165-unit project in Baltimore, including LIHTC loans, a construction loan, subordinate debt, and grants from community development organizations.

Jackson launched the Gaining Leaders, Originators and Women in Commercial Real Estate (GLOW CRE) podcast with Greystone colleague and co-host Pamela van Os. She is part of the Greystone Women’s Network and is a mentor in the company’s inaugural formal mentorship program, which launched this past year. She is actively involved in the company’s work with Project Destined, which exposes diverse college students to CRE careers through hands-on workshops, virtual training programs and internships.

These are just a few reasons we chose Pharrah Jackson as one of the Atlanta & Southeast Connect CRE 2023 Women in Real Estate Award winners. Connect CRE’s Women in Real Estate Awards honor the achievements and inspirational stories of women who have reached respected leadership positions and play key mentorship roles for others.
