ClevelandBellwether Enterprise Real Estate Capital LLC announced 40 successful transactions in May totaling $411 million in loans. The deals included refinancing loans for various commercial and residential properties.

The Cleveland-based commercial and multifamily mortgage banking company ensured a $9.4 million refinance loan for Greenview Senior Assisted Living in Green, Ohio. The 99-unit property was built in 2002 and recently it expanded its memory care facilities and added a sun room. Bellwether Enterprise financed the loan with Thrivent Financial for Lutherans and refinanced with a HUD-insured loan to keep the property in their portfolio.

Bellwether Enterprise also sealed the deal on a $3.3 million refinance loan for The Colony, a multifamily community in Toledo, Ohio. The recently completed property’s early leasing strength and high quality construction helped it secure loan funding. Originator DJ Effler, senior VP at Bellwether, arranged a 15-year term loan with five years of interest-only payments and was able to return almost all of the borrower’s equity.

Bellwether Enterprise also secured a $5.1 million refinance loan for Sandy Springs Village, a shopping center built in 1977 and located in Sandy Springs, Georgia. The lender’s ability to fund the property several months before a primary tenant took occupancy was key to its winning the business.
