Bruce Levin, Executive Director, co-founded MAC Realty Advisors with Andrew McAllister in 2010. Levin and McAllister, who have been friends and professional colleagues for a decade, merged their collective skill sets into one platform to serve the multifamily and residential communities: institutions, developers, landowners, and apartment owners.


Prior to MAC, Mr. Levin founded Keystar LLC, a Washington, DC-based real estate investment company. As Managing Member, he focused on bridge lending and equity investments in-urban infill properties. Before Keystar, Mr. Levin was a Principal and Executive Vice President at CIG International LLC, a national high-yield, mezzanine debt and equity investment company that was backed by institutional capital: Fannie Mae’s American Community Funds, Lehman Brothers, IHP, and an Sanyo Electric Company. CIG International funded residential projects including ground-up construction, apartment-to-condo conversions, and land developments throughout the nation.

 

While at CIG International Mr. Levin and his team invested $182 million into 97 residential transactions representing 18,581 units and lots. In total, the firm deployed over $400 million into high yield residential investments projects in the Northeast, Midwest, Mid-Atlantic and Southeast regions. In addition to being a key principal, Mr. Levin ran the firm’s national production and oversaw regional offices in Orlando, Chicago, and New York. From its inception, CIG International’s investments realized an exceptional return – in excess of a gross 30% IRR – for its capital partners. In July 2004, CIG International was sold at a substantial profit to Capital Source (NYSE: CSE), a Maryland based publicly traded specialty finance firm (now a national bank). Before joining CIG International in 1994, Mr. Levin was an asset manager in the Multifamily Division of Freddie Mac.

 

Mr. Levin received his MBA with a concentration in Real Estate and his undergraduate degree in Finance from The George Washington University. He is a licensed Real Estate Broker in the District of Columbia, Virginia, and Maryland.

Andrew McAllister, Executive Director, co-founded MAC Realty Advisors with Bruce Levin after a successful career at Cushman & Wakefield where he was a senior leader within the Capital Markets Group from 2001 to 2010. During this time he focused primarily on placing debt and equity for residential developments, acquisitions, and permanent financings. His frequent and noted success at advocating large “imputed land equity capital accounts” on behalf of his development clients helped to spawn his team’s foray into land sales where he brokered many of the region’s top sales.

 

At Cushman & Wakefield, Mr. McAllister was recognized with numerous service honors. His performance placed him in the top ten producers regionally and the top 15 percent nationally. His team also won the Client Service Award in 2004 and 2006. The Greater Washington Commercial Association of Realtors ranked Mr. McAllister as a Top 5 Finance Producer for multiple years.

 

In the 1990s, Mr. McAllister worked in Cushman & Wakefield’s Loan Sale Group (2006 to 2008) where he was part of an advisory team responsible for the sale of more than $3 billion in mortgage loans. Locally, his past professional experience includes working as a commercial real estate loan officer at ITT Real Estate and General American Life and a mortgage broker at Walker & Dunlop. In those capacities he closed more than $500 million in commercial and residential transactions. Mr. McAllister started his Washington, DC-based real estate career in 1986 as an analyst with Jones Lang Wootton (now JLL).

 

 

Mr. McAllister received his MBA with honors from Columbia Business School and his undergraduate business degree in finance from Georgetown University. He has been a speaker at numerous industry events including Crittenden, the Mortgage Bankers Association, the Urban Land Institute, the District of Columbia Building Industry Association (DCBIA), and RealShare. Mr. McAllister is a member of the DCBIA, The Economic Club of Washington, D.C., the Real Estate Group, the ICSC, and the business honor society Beta Gamma Sigma. He is a licensed Real Estate Broker in New York, the District of Columbia, Virginia, and Maryland.
