MIAMI, FL – Berkadia announces it has arranged a total of $323 million in refinancing for a 13-property multifamily portfolio with 3,911 units throughout the Midwest and Southeast U.S. Senior Managing Director Mitch Sinberg, Associate Director Matt Robbins and Director of Operations Jared Hill of Berkadia’s Boca Raton office arranged the loans on behalf of STAR Real Estate Ventures, a joint venture between El-Ad National Properties and Yellowstone Portfolio Trust.
Berkadia originated and Freddie Mac purchased a 7-year, fixed rate loan for each property with a highly competitive spread.
“The portfolio represents a diverse set of properties that have stabilized under the sponsor’s ownership after a number of years,” said Sinberg. “With interest rates remaining unchanged and secondary and tertiary markets producing a disproportionate share of population and economic growth, the opportunity to hold these properties was a compelling one.”
“The strength and quality of this portfolio are a testament to Star’s commitment to the highest standards,” added Issac Hera, CEO of STAR Real Estate Ventures. “We are excited to expand our relationship both with Freddie Mac and Berkadia, and would like to thank Mitch and his team.”
