Market Outlook Speakers

Anthony Tarter, Vice Chairman and Head of Workforce Housing

Anthony Tarter, Vice Chairman and Head of Workforce Housing


Anthony Tarter currently serves as the Vice Chairman and Head of Workforce Housing for Newmark. Based in the company’s Dallas, Texas office, Tarter is a 20-year multifamily real estate veteran, with substantial expertise in agency, life companies, debt funds and bridge-to-agency executions in the Workforce Housing sector. He has closed upwards of $15 billion in loans over the course of his career and of the nearly $1 billion in loans he closed in 2021, 95% were for naturally occurring affordable housing.

Tarter has assisted in developing agency social impact programs, including Fannie Mae’s Sponsor Initiated Affordability (SIA) program where his team closed the first ever Fannie Mae loan under this new program. He also took part in the development of Freddie Mac’s Social Impact and Master Financing Commitment and its Tenant Advancement Commitment, a program offering favorable pricing and credit terms for borrowers who agree to create or preserve affordable rent levels on a portion of units at a property over the term of the loan. One of Tarter’s Sponsors was named Freddie Mac’s Inaugural Impact Sponsor of the Year.

Prior to joining Newmark, Tarter served as Executive Vice President and National Director of Workforce Housing and Social Impact for Bellwether, also having held roles at ARCS/PNC Bank, Arbor REIT and Prudential throughout his career.

Tarter’s philanthropic and industry involvement includes co-founding Veritas Impact Partners, a non-profit formed to assist apartment owners in implementing social impact services within their communities across the country. The organization is currently serving over 20,000 households. Tarter also serves on the board of the National Multifamily Housing Council’s (NMHC) Workforce Housing Committee.

Tarter is passionate about impacting the renter experience through the housing communities he works with every day. He views renters as the ultimate clients and believes that focusing on amenities and services that improve the quality of their lives is paramount.

Please click to view a short film produced by a 60 Minutes crew and Fannie Mae’s PR group where Tarter and his client were highlighted. Fannie’s CAO, Jeff Hayward, appeared in the film which highlighted another property Tarter financed where the sponsor implemented social impact services, while also preserving workforce housing.

Tarter graduated from Abilene Christian University, with a Bachelor of Business Administration in Accounting and Finance. He also studied International Business through Oxford University.
