Bethesda, Md.—Walker & Dunlop Inc. closed eight Freddie Mac loans worth $256 million, the company announced. The loans were secured by a portfolio that included 2,864 units in market rate properties in Florida, Georgia, North Carolina and Texas.

These units were financed for Cortland Partners. The three-year, full-term and interest-only loans were structured through the Freddie Mac Value-Add Program.

Stephen Farnsworth, managing director and leader of the Walker & Dunlop team, said, “Cortland’s experience with multifamily value-add renovations and the Freddie Mac Value-Add Program allowed us the opportunity to close these eight acquisition loans, from seven different sellers, in a very short time frame.  Freddie Mac’s deal teams did an excellent job managing the commitment process across multiple regions and markets.”
