What is the greatest challenge facing your commercial real estate market in 2014?

Deal Makers

When looking for financing on behalf of a 1031 exchange buyer with a tight timeline, Federico Rochwerger, CCIM, of Keyes Commercial in Boca Raton, Fla., turned to his CCIM network. “I posted a Mailbridge message and received an email from Parker Briley, CCIM, within minutes,” Rochwerger says. Briley, of Willow Bend Commercial Capital in Dallas, brought a local lender to the table that provided the $1.7 million in financing needed to close the $2.5 million sale of the 9,451-sf Golden Corral in Richardson, Texas. The deal closed in only 29 days with a 7-year term at a 5 percent fixed rate and a 25-year amortization with 15 years remaining on the lease term. The loan-to-value ratio was 68 percent. “Parker brought the most aggressive and compatible lender to the table,” says Rochwerger. “This was a very complex transaction — something a CCIM would know how to handle.”
