As one of the largest commercial real estate lenders in the United States, Walker & Dunlop has differentiated itself from the competition through its deep industry knowledge, experienced team of financing professionals, scaled lending platform, and exceptional customer service. Since going public at the end of 2010, we have delivered strong, consistent shareholder returns and outperformed the broader markets. Between 2010 and 2015, we carefully strengthened, scaled and diversified our lending platform with a focus on recruiting talented professionals and acquiring great businesses. We successfully integrated four companies, which allowed us to meet the needs of the market, expand our client base, and grow our footprint without compromising the culture and expertise that our clients had come to expect from Walker & Dunlop.
Founded in 1937, Walker & Dunlop has been a consistent source of financing through many market cycles. Our comprehensive suite of financing solutions allows us to originate loans for our balance sheet, allows us to originate loans for our balance sheet, or for sale to Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and HUD, and broker loans to life insurance companies, banks, and other CMBS providers. Walker & Dunlop Investment Sales is our investment advisory and broker group specializing in the multifamily sector of the market. Behind Walker & Dunlop’s loan origination businesses sits a $59 billion servicing portfolio filled with over 5,000 mortgages, predominantly on multifamily properties with high debt service coverage and plenty of equity ahead of Walker & Dunlop’s debt.
The past five years have brought significant changes to Walker & Dunlop that have made us a larger and more dynamic firm today, but our customer-centric approach and commitment to delivering shareholder value are still at the heart of all we do.
