CBRE’s Miami office collaborated with the investment sales and debt teams in CBRE’s Dallas office to coordinate the loans. The Harbor Group is a fantastic buyer and completed the due diligence in a timely manner, which allowed Freddie Mac to commit and close the loans under very delicate time frames, ahead of schedule, in each of the three tranches of loans provided. The loans were aggressive both in terms of proceeds and terms material to a portfolio of this size and difficulty.”
