'Using long-term, fully amortizing FHA financing to pay off a maturing Freddie Mac loan allowed the borrower to achieve their financing goals and highlights one of the benefits of working with PGIM - a lender with a variety of capital sources that allow us to find the right execution depending on the market, asset and borrower's goals,' said Patrick Kempton, managing director at PGIM Real Estate Finance.
'PGIM Real Estate Finance is a team of experts that consistently deliver favorable financing. This deal strengthens our long-term relationship with PGIM Real Estate Finance, and we look forward to working with them again in the future,' said Dwight Dunton at Bonaventure.
