Meet the Founder

Using passion and integrity, we are creating affordable living solutions for people who can rely on them.


Nicolaas Simonis


Nick's passion for creating affordable housing stems from his background as a Dutch immigrant who arrived in North America and who had experienced through his parents the difficulty of finding affordable housing in the Netherlands.

Before founding Shining City Housing, Nick has spent over 22 years in residential real estate business with longstanding relationships with Fannie Mae, HUD and other agencies, as well as construction and renovation experience.

Some of Nick's responsibilities are the acquisition, debt and equity structuring of Shining City Housing projects.
