Innovative Strategies. Redefining Performance.

We continue to practice the ethos instilled within our organization from the beginning.

Our approach to commercial real estate lending is to build long-term relationships by providing a transparent, reliable and swift process to our clients. With ongoing fluctuations in the capital markets, we seek to deliver superior risk-adjusted returns to our investors while our borrowers benefit from consistent certainty of execution. This philosophy has remained unchanged since our founding in 2010.

    • Description

      Larger loan sizes for institutional-quality properties with near-stabilized cash flow profiles

  • Core+:

    Institutional-like properties that have cash-flow and are considered light repositioning or are in a transitional phase e.g. leases rolling within the next 1-3 years and need to have structure before being refinanced with permanent CMBS, LifeCo., bank or GSE financing.

  • Value-Add:

    Opportunities where we finance the acquisition of a property that has leasing of vacancy or below-market in-place rents and qualified borrowers seek to add value by completion a renovation or improving management to maximize cash-flow through a well-capitalized TI/LC budget or CapEx budget. These are loans that start with 2-3 years of initial term followed by 1-3 one-year extension options totaling 5 years of total loan term. Renovation and leasing costs are "future funded".

  • Opportunistic:

    Typically time-constrained, quick-close special situations such as auction acquisitions, discounted loan payoffs (DPOs), non-performing loan (NPLs) acquisitions, 1031 exchange or maturing loan deadlines where qualified borrowers need a reliable, balance sheet lender to offer certainty of execution and prepayment flexibility. Also, projects that are considered heavy lifts, where CapEx future funding may exceed 50% of the total loan commitment, or a cash-flow shortfall (due to in-place occupancy at the time of loan closing or a completely vacant asset) requiring a full interest reserve funded at closing.
