Water Street Financial Group (“WSFG”) is a licensed real estate brokerage and mortgage banking firm, specializing in structuring and placing both debt & equity on the capital markets for various commercial real estate projects. Whether its non-recourse debt or equity, Water Street Financial Group can provide flexible financing solutions, mitigate interest rate risk through long term financing or mitigate personal liability through the creative structuring & placement of financing for a wide range of property types and capital needs.

Water Street Financial Group has established relationships with an extensive list of private & public capital sources nationwide that can provide long-term permanent loans, bridge and floating rate loans, construction financing, mezzanine debt or various forms of equity. The lenders we work with include a wide range of specialized firms including securitized lenders, life insurance companies, private investment groups, pension funds, REITs, Fannie Mae and FHA, banks, and specialty finance companies.

In many situations, traditional long-term financing may be just the solution for one of your clients. Water Street Financial Group can help place financing, which will increase the client’s lending availability by reducing credit exposure to local financing sources. The majority of our lenders focus solely on the inherent value of the real estate and the strength of the company behind the repayment source. Therefore, the majority of the financing we structure does not involve personal recourse (except for standard lender carve-outs for fraud, environmental indemnity, etc.).

Water Street Financial Group is not limited to traditional, long-term financing products. WSFG has an established network of private equity sources. These equity sources, in conjunction with the capital market sources we work with, will provide up to 100% financing on various projects. Water Street specializes in financing challenging anchored or unanchored retail and office projects with tenant issues. WSFG works with a number of retail developers to place both permanent debt & initial construction equity.

With more than 45 years of combined banking & commercial real estate experience, we offer a seasoned, professional perspective. We are service-oriented and highly responsive. Our goal is to make this process as streamlined as possible for you, while at the same time keeping you fully involved as we progress through the quote, application and closing process.
