Commercial real estate company Greystone is on a nationwide hiring tear as it expands its presence in response to increased demand for CRE loans and the emergence of a special appetite for small-balance loans.
Recently, Greystone made 10 hires across the nation to bolster its offices in Denver, Seattle, Los Angeles, San Diego, New York, Chicago, Houston, the newly-minted Miami office and promoted three Greystone employees to regional leadership positions to help manage the company's growth.
Ana Ramos will be taking the West as regional manager, Clint Darby will head up the central region and Brian Liske will lead the East.
In addition to promoting the three regional leaders, Greystone hired 10 loan originators across the nation.
Amy Ivy will work out of Denver; Bryan Foxley (pictured first below) will work with the Seattle office; Jason Gaffner and Mackenzie Kerin will work in the Los Angeles office; Kristen Elbogen will be in the San Diego office; Amanuel Mekonen will be with the New York office; Federico Calif (pictured third below) will be a part of the new Miami office; Gill Dolan (pictured second below) and Blake Willeford (pictured fourth below) will be in the Houston office; and Kyle Kalkofen will work out of the Chicago office.
Greystone cites growing national demand for small-balance loans for multifamily properties as a major reason for its rapid expansion, and the company says it is on track to issue a record amount of loans for workforce housing properties.
