Commercial Mortgage Broker Financial Compound works closely with many of these life companies and successfully closes loans with life company and other portfolio lenders, as well as with other types of capital providers throughout the real estate capital markets.  As we round out 2011 Financial Compound continues to have a banner year, with a loan closing volume approaching its 2006/2007 peak.  Financial Compound does not attribute its 2011 success to economic trends, rather the luck and opportunity of adding a handful of new clients and staff-members, in addition to performing refinances and other loans for its core of repeat borrowers.  Commercial mortgage broker Financial Compound notes that a number of distressed deals that have been in workout mode for more than 18 months have come to conclusion in 2011 involving workouts to continue on with the same capital providers, or distressed refinances where Financial Compound was able to find the proverbial needle in the haystack and bring new money to the table for properties where many of today’s commercial real estate lender will not transact.

We look forward to seeing our friends and colleagues at the 14th annual Western States CREF conference, in addition to making new connections.
