Marcus & Millichap Capital Corp. Closes $33.1M in CRE Financing
DENVER – Marcus & Millichap Capital Corp. (MMCC), a leading national provider of commercial real estate financing and capital markets expertise, recently announced that more than $33.1 million in investment property financing was placed by its Denver office led by Phillip Gause, first vice president capital markets, and Alex Ducas, associate director, through April 30, 2019.
Senior permanent acquisition financing accounted for nearly 80 percent of the team’s total transaction volume. The remaining 20 percent comprised bridge financing and permanent refinancing.
The team closed a $5.62 million bridge loan for the acquisition of a 52-unit multifamily portfolio, composed of two buildings in the uptown neighborhood of Denver. The loan funded in two weeks from application in order to close within the terms of the purchase-and-sale agreement.
“One of our proprietary capital partners was really impressive in their ability to step into a situation where the lender our client had previously selected could not get their arms around the transaction and substantially re-traded our client only a week and a half before closing. Given that our client had a substantial amount of non-refundable earnest money at risk if they were not able to consummate the transaction, this presented a significant issue. Our capital partner stepped in and positioned us to close inside of two weeks from application at attractive terms and on a non-recourse basis,” Gause said.
MMCC’s platform leverages its broad lender network in order to source the most competitive financing available for investors seeking to acquire investment properties around the country.
