Show Notes

Matt Rienzo and guest-host Steve Siegel interview Marc Broady in the first episode of an educational series focusing on hot topics in the real estate industry. Today, they talk about affordable housing and why cities need to invest in them, how they get developed, and the impact affordable housing has on communities and families. Marc Broady, a West Baltimore native, talks about the challenges of rent for low-income single families and takes listeners through his time working as an attorney with Congressman Elijah Cummings on housing issues on national, state, and local levels that sparked his interest in starting a career in affordable housing development. Also in this episode, Steve Siegel gives insight into how he brought his experience in Washington D.C. development over to Baltimore and provides crucial knowledge about what affordable housing really is, how it began, how it works, and who benefits. Both Broady and Siegel tie their backgrounds and knowledge into how and why Port Covington is bringing affordable housing to Baltimore. Tune in to hear their perspective on how affordable housing aims to tackle issues of inequality and maintain the character of America’s great cities.
