Berkadia Expands in Philadelphia, Adds Managing Director
- Aug 19, 2016
Philadelphia—Berkadia announced the expansion of its investment sales platform in the thriving Philadelphia market with the addition of Matt Stefanski as managing director. Stefanski will be based in the Philadelphia office and will report to National Head of Investment Sales Keith Misner, effective at the time of publication. Stefanski will be responsible for expanding Berkadia’s sales platform regionally. His appointment sets the stage for increased production activity on both a regional and national level as Berkadia seeks to grow its reach.
“Matt’s decision to join and build-out Berkadia’s apartment sales team immediately strengthens our capabilities in Philadelphia,” Misner said in prepared remarks. “We’re looking forward to further demonstrating our investment sales platform to our Philadelphia clients, who are already familiar with the strength of our mortgage banking unit.”
Stefanski will work alongside Bob Falese, who leads the office’s mortgage banking team. Consistently recognized as Philadelphia’s top mortgage banking office, the Philadelphia team has arranged more than $2 billion in financing annually for the last three years.
“Our team looks forward to collaborating with Matt and offering an enhanced level of service to our clients,” added Falese. “With seven established mortgage bankers and a deep bench, we will surely continue to grow in coming months. Matt’s expertise and reputation make him the perfect fit for this responsibility.”
Most recently, Stefanski served as vice president of CBRE’s Philadelphia multifamily team for nearly six years, specializing in the sale of apartment properties throughout the region. In that role, Stefanski was involved in over $1.5 billion in transactions.
“While the decision to leave my former team was not an easy one, I could not be more excited to join Berkadia. I look forward to developing a top-tier investment sales presence in Philadelphia. The long-term vision of the firm and people make this a unique opportunity,” added Stefanski.
Stefanski earned a Bachelor of Science degree in business from Penn State University. He currently serves on the business advisory board for Rosemont College and is a member of the Pennsylvania Apartment Association East.
