6th Annual MHN Capital Choice Awards 2008

Despite all of the fluctuations in today’s economy, multifamily housing developers still need funding sources for their deals.

The winners of our 6th Annual Capital Choice Awards represent excellent choices in terms of where to start that funding search.

The companies shown here represent the leading edge in a fast-changing landscape. You and your peers have voted these lenders as the “best of the best” at providing valuable services, speed of processing, flexibility of terms, scope of loan products offered, and the quality of loan servicing.

Some of the financial institutions listed here have been bought by larger banks. We have simply listed each winner as they were posted and voted for at the time of balloting. We understand that there could be additional changes—to bank names and ownership—between the time this is written and published, and so we ask your understanding in this matter.

Please do keep this list as a reference! It’s a tremendous all-year resource when you need to search out new lenders, see what’s happening with current partners or just need to know what’s on the market. Best of all, you benefit from the collective wisdom of your colleagues who have given these particular institutions their stamp of approval.

To make sure you’ll be able to access the list from anywhere at any time, 24/7, we are also showcasing the winners on our Web site at www.multi-housingnews.com.

Congratulations to the 2008 MHN Capital Choice Award winners, and a sincere “thank you” to all those readers who cast ballots.
