Seattle–Berkadia Commercial Mortgage LLC (Berkadia) has hired industry veteran Louis Weisman as senior vice president and branch manager of its recently opened commercial real estate loan origination office in Seattle.
Weisman has 25 years experience in acquisition and permanent financing for multifamily and commercial income-producing real estate assets. A 20-year resident of Seattle, Weisman formerly was with Key Bank Real Estate Capital where he was responsible for permanent loan originations in the Washington, Oregon, Utah and Northern California markets.
“Berkadia will focus on meeting the financing needs of multifamily owners and developers in the Seattle market through our Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae DUS programs and HUD’s Multifamily Accelerated Processing (MAP) program,” Weisman says. Berkadia also is active as an originator of loans through its correspondent relationships with insurance companies, pension funds and other third-party capital providers.
