In today’s Real Estate Syndication Show episode, we feature Marcia Kaufman, a seasoned lending industry expert with over 30 years of experience. Marcia shares insights into the current state of real estate lending, specifically in the commercial sector, and discusses the impact of recent interest rate hikes by the Federal Reserve.
Addressing challenges from the rapid increase in interest rates, such as deal analysis difficulty and potential issues with refinancing at higher rates, Marcia emphasizes the importance of industry experience. She notes that seasoned sponsors with a successful track record are better equipped to navigate these changes.
We also explore the role of private lending versus larger institutions. Marcia highlights the advantages of working with alternative lenders like Bayport, especially when traditional banks may slow down their lending.
Proudly sharing Bayport’s impressive 40% growth under her CEO leadership, Marcia attributes success to factors like a well-seasoned staff, increased credit facilities, geographic expansion, and capturing market share from aggregators.
