     Affordable Housing Communities (“AHC”) benefits from the skills of an experienced team of professionals to locate and acquire properties as well as manage them after acquisition including the following:

 

Michael Gottlieb, President of Affordable Housing Communities

Mr. Gottlieb is the founder of AHC and leads the investor group in the acquisition, retrofit, placement, sale, and on-going management of the manufactured home Communities acquired by Investors.  Prior to AHC, Mr. Gottlieb was an investment Banker and financial advisor registered with the National Association of Securities Dealers (“NASD”) and for approximately ten years was series 7 and series 24 licensed including a number of years as a principal.  He worked at two New York Stock Exchange firms primarily in the area of institutional sales and investment banking and helped launch the European trading desk.  He is no longer associated with any securities firm.

 

Mr. Gottlieb has been a successful passive real estate investor since 1985, and began a successful career as an active investor in manufactured housing communities in January of 2000.  Since then, Mr. Gottlieb has acquired approximately twenty-five communities in Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Texas, consisting of a total of over 3000 units.  In addition, through AHC Mr. Gottlieb manages properties which Mr. Gottlieb does not have an ownership interest in including properties in Florida, South Carolina and Ohio.

 

Mr. Gottlieb has gained a broad range of experience since founding his company including turning around distressed and vacant properties, stabilizing under-performing parks, and working with FEMA to fill a park after two devastating hurricanes hit the Treasure Coast area of Florida in 2004.

 

Through Mr. Gottlieb's management and leadership, AHC has invested efficiently and realized substantial returns through numerous investment cycles.

 

Because of his experience and his extensive contacts with sellers, brokers, and lenders specializing in this product, Mr. Gottlieb is in an excellent position to identify very attractive investment opportunities within the manufactured housing industry, including pre-owned homes, and intends to aggressively grow his portfolio.
