Gerry Flynn - Managing Partner
With over 25 years of real estate experience in resort communities, Gerry founded Polar Star with a unique approach to affordable housing. As CFO at Vail Resorts, Gerry was responsible for the development and management of extensive employee housing efforts. In cooperation with local municipalities and the State of Colorado, Gerry developed a non-profit financing structure that had not been used in Colorado previously. The 6320 structure has since become the preferred structure for affordable rental housing throughout the mountain resort communities. Gerry's esteemed integrity and professionalism have allowed him to successfully develop and sustain multi-family rental housing properties in the resort communities of Edwards, Beaver Creek, Avon, Eagle-Vail, Northstar, CA, Snowmass Village and these projects have continued to thrive in a very challenging time, market, and economy.
