Institutional Property Advisors (IPA), a division of Marcus & Millichap, has hired Jordyn Berger as a director of the firm’s seniors housing group. Berger will focus on structuring and arranging debt, mezzanine and equity capital for owners, operators and developers of independent living, assisted living, memory care and skilled nursing facilities.
Most recently, Berger served as director of acquisitions for Enlivant, a private equity-backed, assisted living owner-operator, and as acquisitions manager for Ventas Inc., a leading publicly traded real estate investment trust.
“Jordyn brings an unprecedented level of capital markets expertise and experience to her new position,” said Alan Pontius, national director of specialty divisions. “She will work closely with our Chicago-based seniors housing team, led by Mark Myers and Joshua Jandris, who together have closed $4.4 billion in seniors housing transactions across 41 states. Given Jordyn’s analytic expertise, acquisition experience and capital markets knowledge, she is a strong fit for this role. This team addition is a huge win for our clients and for IPA-Seniors Housing.”
Berger began as her career with JP Morgan Chase as a real estate banking credit analyst and underwriter in the firm’s commercial real estate banking division. She has also served as a capital markets associate for Cohen Financial and Jones Lang LaSalle. Berger received a bachelor of science degree in finance from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and is an active member of the American Seniors Housing Association Rising Leaders.
