May 15, 2019 – Extensia Financial, one of the nation’s largest credit union service organizations (CUSO) focused on commercial real estate lending, successfully led the closing of 11 commercial real estate loans totaling $28.9 million in March and April. The loans consist of seven commercial and four multifamily assets located in Alabama, California, Connecticut, Florida, Indiana, Mississippi, New York, North Carolina and Texas, and represent the breadth and depth of Extensia’s nationwide network and experience in the industry as credit unions look to the CUSO for lending opportunities and advisory services.
“Demand for commercial real estate lending opportunities from credit unions continues to grow, and we were so pleased to welcome two new credit union partners into our robust network across the U.S. through the funding of these recent deals,” said Craig Page, president and CEO at Extensia Financial. “We have the tailwinds of a healthy economy at our backs, and real estate market fundamentals are strong heading into the second half of the year. As credit unions seek more lending opportunities that fit their risk profile, our team is ready to leverage our experience to help identify new ways credit unions can diversify their real estate portfolios.”
