With a combined career transaction volume total in excess of $60 billion and combined experience of almost 30 years, Newmark’s Ryan Maconachy and Chad Lavender consistently rank as a top producing team in their space. Most notably, the team ranked #1 in total production volume by Senior Care Investor, winning with margins almost double that of those in the #2 slot the last three years running.
The two co-founded a leading seniors housing brokerage group in their 20s before the asset class was established as an investment type for institutional capital. Among their most notable 2020 transactions was Project Eagle, reportedly the largest healthcare transaction of 2020 at $1.1 billion, roughly 50% seniors housing and 50% medical office, with a record closing timeline of 42 days. It served as a real-time COVID-19 comparable and represents an unwavering appetite for Class A seniors housing assets before, during and after the pandemic.
