Manufactured Housing Properties Inc. has appointed Mollie Boyce as Director of Capital Markets. In her new role, she will help structure and market investment offerings through independent broker-dealers in the U.S. Boyce will also handle the rollout and approval processes with broker-dealers in order to sell the offering within those firms.
“I chose MPH because they have been successful in buying, owning and managing their portfolio of manufactured housing properties. They have had several successful capital raises and we are going to use that momentum to create a successful offering suitable for the independent channel,” Boyce told Commercial Property Executive.
Boyce spent more than twenty years raising investment capital in the alternative and private equity sectors. She started her career as a small cap equity trader and moved into the independent broker-dealer space raising money in real estate and oil and gas projects. Her experience includes working with both advisors and private equity firms and working with family offices to broaden product choices on investment platforms.
Before joining the company, Boyce was national sales director at Forum Partners. There, she successfully rolled out their preferred equity offering that invests in the international and national real estate space. Prior to that, Boyce was with Highland Capital Management and was responsible for building out the firm’s selling group into the 1031 sector. Boyce holds a bachelor’s degree from Westmont College.
The manufactured housing sector is experiencing a surge of interest from investors and tenants alike. A recent JLL report shows that transaction volume hit $821 million during the second quarter, up 23 percent compared to the first three months.
