George Smith Partners is a premier nationwide conduit between users of capital and providers of capital. Although headquartered in Los Angeles, fifty percent of our work is on properties located outside of California. Sophisticated developers and investors value our ability to custom-tailor closings that deliver the smartest money. In 2005, we arranged over $3.5 billion in commercial financings through 270 transactions…placed with 84 different capital sources.
We provide fee-based advisory services for real estate capitalizations of all magnitudes. We enable clients to maximize the value of their real estate holdings with a sound financing solution backed by market-smart capital.
Clients retain us on an exclusive basis to represent their financing request to the capital markets. We employ a methodology through which we clarify client needs, underwrite property economics to pinpoint potential loan amounts, terms and mitigation of lender risk, identify financing alternatives, and define an optimal financing strategy. By matching underwriting criteria and borrower objectives with lenders whose current financing programs best match the request, we lead our clients to the most competitive capital available. We proactively manage the financing at every step, from the completion of offering materials, submission to the capital markets, and negotiation of financing proposals, coordination of the due diligence, commitment and closing of the transaction.
Our financing services are customized with one overriding goal: to lead clients to the smartest money available—regardless of whether it is $5 million…or $500 million.
