Bethesda, Maryland – September 19, 2017
Walker & Dunlop, Inc. (NYSE: WD) (the “Company”) announced today that it has launched a new website as the capstone of its comprehensive rebranding efforts.
Walker & Dunlop Chairman and CEO, Willy Walker, stated, “As Walker & Dunlop approaches its 80th anniversary, we are pleased to introduce a new brand and website that reflect our leadership position in the commercial real estate finance industry. Our rebranding efforts not only highlight the strength and scale of the platform we have worked so hard to build, but they also position us well for the future as we work to achieve our stated mission of becoming the premier commercial real estate finance firm in the United States.”
Since going public in 2010 through the end of 2016, the Company has evolved tremendously; the servicing portfolio has grown by 331 percent, revenues by 372 percent, and transaction volume by over 508 percent. The company continued its strong growth trajectory in the first half of 2017, with total transaction volumes increasing 38 percent, revenues up 34 percent, and net income up 64 percent over the same period in 2016.
Earlier this year the Company achieved one of its long-term, strategic goals of becoming a top-five loan originator with all three multifamily mortgage lending Agencies. Already ranked a top-five lender with both Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the Company became the fourth largest multifamily lender with the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for 2016 according to the Mortgage Bankers Association.
“As part of our robust company expansion, we have advanced beyond commercial real estate lending to offer investment sales and entered into a joint venture with Blackstone Mortgage Trust to originate, hold, and finance multifamily bridge loans,” Walker continued, “Our new website reintroduces Walker & Dunlop and showcases our full spectrum of financial solutions to the market, prospects, and clients.”
