15-Year Newmark Exec Joins Top-Growing Multifamily Investment Company RPM Living

Zach Springer Brings Industry-Wide Relationships on the Heels of RPM’s Most Active Investment Year. 

RPM Living, a full-service multifamily investment and management company, is adding to its bench strength with the addition of Zach Springer as Partner and Managing Director of Capital Markets. On the heels of the company’s most active investment year – closing 18 transactions for over $1B in value in four states – Springer is poised to oversee equity/debt for RPM at a national level. Springer will elevate RPM’s equity sourcing capabilities and continue to expand the institutional investor base by leveraging RPM’s data, geographical footprint, and exceptional investment track record.   

“Adding a superior talent like Zach to the team is an exciting way to kick off the year,” says Hank Farrell, Chief Executive Officer of RPM Investments. “His depth of relationships and market knowledge from a national standpoint is key as we implement our investment strategy with current and new equity groups across the country.” 

Prior to joining RPM, Springer was Vice Chairman at Newmark, where he was directly involved in over $10B in multifamily transactions across all classes of multifamily properties. He helped lead (along with his partners) the Newmark Houston office to a No. 1 ranking in market share/transaction volume for the last eight years and No. 1 in the nation in 2021 among all multifamily brokerage shops. Springer has a Bachelor of Arts in Economics from The University of Texas with a minor in Business. He is an active supporter in non-profit organizations, including Yellowstone Academy, Apartment Life, HOPE International, Family Legacy, and Free the Captives.  

“After 16 years in the business, I never thought I would see the day I left brokerage and especially my team in Houston that is more like family than colleagues. It took a unique situation, which I believe this opportunity offers,” says Springer. “I have known and been friends with Hank and Jason [Berkowitz, CEO of RPM Living, Management] for nearly 20 years and feel fortunate to have the chance to partner with them and build something special over the next 20 years. The goal is to be the best investor, operator, and manager in the industry, and I look forward to seeing what we can accomplish together. The energy around RPM and their leadership is what stood out to me and reminds me of what the Newmark team has in Houston.”
