Greystone's West Coast Origination Platform Closes $46.5 Million in Multifamily Lending

NEW YORK, Oct. 14, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Greystone, a leading national provider of multifamily and healthcare mortgage loans, today announced it has funded several large loans through its recently expanded West Coast operations team. Spanning a growing presence from Seattle to San Diego, Greystone has served as an integral finance partner to an increasing number of commercial property owners in today's low-rate environment that is optimal for refinance or acquisitions.

Recent transactions Greystone's Tim Thompson of its San Francisco office originated under the Fannie Mae Delegated Underwriting and Servicing (DUS®) program include:

  • $23.4 million loan to refinance a sprawling 90-unit complex – one of the largest in Sausalito, CA – with bay views, landscaped terraces and pool. The 12-year loan featured five interest-only years.
  • $10.4 million, 10-year loan to refinance a Class A multifamily project in Mountain View, CA with a very unique ownership structure.
  • $12.7 million, 10-year acquisition loan of a Class A multifamily property in Goodyear, AZ, which was the first real estate venture for the borrower in that state

"With our ever-increasing platform of lending products to match our seasoned, creative lending professionals, we are poised to address the unique needs of multifamily owners in this region."
