Freddie Mac has published a list of the top 10 multifamily lenders that transacted the most financing volume through the GSE's multifamily arm in 2016.
CBRE Capital Markets heads the list, with $10.6 billion in multifamily transactions made through Freddie Mac Multifamily last year. Berkadia Commercial Mortgage came in second, at $9.8 billion, and Walker & Dunlop was third, at $5.8 billion.
Freddie Mac Multifamily settled a record $56.8 billion in new multifamily volume in 2016 and financed more than 738,000 rental units.
"We are very proud of the extraordinary efforts by our lender network to provide America's apartment financing in 2016," said John Cannon, senior vice president of Freddie Mac Multifamily Production and Sales. "It is a privilege to work every day with our industry's best originators, underwriters, asset managers, and closing counsel. Their role in the market will be especially critical this year to meeting our country's rising demand for properties with affordable rents."
