Executive Vice President Greg Engler commented, “We are thrilled to welcome Matt, Forrest, and Spencer to Walker & Dunlop. The addition of this team to our property sales platform deepens our capabilities in the South with a strategic presence in Central Texas, one of the most active commercial real estate markets in the country. We are very pleased with our hiring momentum as we continue to attract top property sales talent to partner with our best-in-class debt financing capabilities across the country.”
