Senior Vice President & Managing Director Stuart Oswald of Northmarq’s Seattle office has arranged the six-year, fixed-rate loan through a correspondent life insurance company. The loan was rate locked at just under 6 percent and features an earn-out component allowing the borrower to draw additional financing as the NOI improves.
