Why We Do It
Geraldine Smyer and Livingston Sissac decided that it was important to provide safe and affordable housing to the community. Livingston & Geraldine continued to add additional homes to the family’s portfolio by working multiple jobs and picking up extra shifts in order to save the money for down payments for the investment properties. Livingston Jr, Michael & Martin completed new construction on an affordable home on 84th Street. This would be important to their childhood development for the reason that during that time the neighborhood had become subject to high crime and drug use. The boys were taught to maintain great relationships with their tenants, inspiring them to bring this kind of affordable arrangement to even more families today.
Smyer Sissac Property Development; a residential housing developer who is passionate about providing quality and affordable housing options; is excited to announce the appointment of Martin Sissac as Managing Member and Michael Sissac as his Partner. Michael brings with him a Doctorate in Pharmacy from University of Southern California. Martin brings with him 28 years of law enforcement experience as well as an MBA from University of Phoenix. The development team will now be growing their footing in the Los Angeles affordable housing market.
Specializing in affordable housing development & property management, the team looks to add 100 additional units to their management profile in Los Angeles. They announced they will also actively seek to raise money in order to continue to purchase both single family and multifamily properties in order to add value to the community.

We strive to be a leader in residential housing development & community development
Our objective is to develop services-enriched housing that will help families combat chronic poverty, welfare dependency and homelessness, targeting battered women and women with children. Women young and old, who are homeless and alone survive by being invisible. Staying awake through the night out of fear, they sleep on buses and in airports, hospitals, abandoned buildings, backyards and alleyways in a desperate attempt to find shelter each night without being detected. Finding food in garbage cans and behind restaurants, women avoid panhandling because doing so makes them a highly visible targets for crime. They bathe in public restrooms, desperate to go unnoticed. But of course, they cannot hide forever, especially from predators
It is and has been important for the Smyer Sissac Property Development Family to continue to uplift and provide permanent solutions for the women in our community so that they can avoid as many of the negative experiences the system has set up for them to experience. From this goal our mission to provide safe, affordable, & equitable homes for our community was born.
Modular Housing is expected to become the number one solution for solving the homeless problem in Los Angeles.
Our Communities should have safe, compassionate, quality, and affordable housing.
The Smyer Sissac team will focus to acquire deteriorating single family and multifamily structures, leverage private and public capital to renovate properties and turn them around into safe, affordable and well‐ functioning residential communities. Similarly, by attracting investment to construct new housing on vacant in‐fill lots, Smyer Sissac seeks to add to the local supply of safe, affordable housing and eliminate the hazards often associated with vacant lots.
It is about more than just residential housing development; Community Development is equally important. The United Nations defines community development as a process where community members come together to take collective action and generate solutions to common problems. We all can clearly see the problems arising in our community and Smyer Sissac is prepared to actively provide a solution
