Frank Gudger, CPA

Managing Partner, Aprio Birmingham | Affordable Housing Advisor | HUD Audit Expert

Frank Gudger-

Who I work with

I advise and consult with real estate property clients in acquisitions, negotiations and certifications that generate multi-million-dollar proceeds.

My specialty

I have 30+ years of experience specializing in accounting and auditing of commercial real estate projects, real estate funds and affordable housing projects, including those subject to the auditing requirements of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and various not-for-profit housing organizations. Here are just a few of the ways I serve clients:

  • I advise clients on structuring to maximize net proceeds from sales of their real estate portfolio.
  • I advise developer clients on structuring real estate deals to maximize equity from sales of federal and state low-income credits and historic credits. This includes reviewing and selecting equity provider proposals.
  • I consult with real estate companies to review company structure and internal controls, to maximize profit and manage risk.

Unique things about me

I oversee the quality control for all Aprio auditing and accounting engagements, including major audit and review engagements for various private companies operating in real estate development and construction management.

I earned my Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting from Georgia Southern College.

What I do when I am not at work

I thoroughly enjoy what I do. When I'm not working, I work with the Georgia Affordable Housing Coalition and Atlanta Apartment Association. I also participate in many industry and community activities including:

  • Georgia Council for Rural Housing Development
  • Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association
  • Atlanta Apartment Association
  • American Institute of Certified Public Accountants
  • Georgia Society of Certified Public Accountants

People say that I am

Committed, relaxed and confident
