Financial Compound Story

About Commercial Mortgage Broker

Financial Compound, and its staff have closed over $5.1 billion in transactions, running the gamut from low leverage first mortgages on trophy assets, to structured debt and equity placements for properties needing renovation, to construction and unentitled land financing. For example, we assembled a 100%-of-all-in-cost investment property loan package (including land, hard and soft improvement costs, interest reserve, and closing costs) for a shopping center developer with minimal pre-leasing. The transaction was crafted so that the developer kept all the upsides after a 7.5% IRR to the financial partner.

Commercial Brokerage Philosophy

As your commercial mortgage broker, we will obtain preliminary financing terms for a transaction and then evaluate the options in light of the client’s objectives, and makes a recommendation. Financial Compound provides an ‘apples-to-apples’ comparison of each financing proposal by quantifying financing terms such as amortization methods, promote and waterfall structures, escrows, holdbacks, lender fees, defeasance and other prepayment penalties, etc. As your commercial mortgage broker, Financial Compound’s work ethic, attention to detail, and passion for the business- characterized by customer service, minimizes the client’s involvement with processing and paperwork and has helped us enjoy a strong client retention ratio.
