BETHESDA, Md., Aug. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Walker & Dunlop, Inc. (NYSE: WD) announced today that it arranged $20,000,000 for Stave Properties, LLC to refinance Mountain View Retirement Village, a 188-unit premier seniors housing community in Tucson, Arizona.
Phoenix-based loan originators, Brandon Harrington and Matt Steffen led the team that arranged the life insurance company financing with a 10-year fixed rate term and 30-year amortization. Mountain View Retirement Village offers best-in-class independent and assisted living, and provides services including restaurant-style dining, housekeeping and maintenance services, scheduled transportation, customized assistance, and recreational and wellness activities for its residents.

By offering an aggressive 10-year fixed rate, complemented by a step-down prepayment, and the ability to lock rate at application, plus the flexibility of working with a balance sheet capital source, the life company financing emerged as the best fit for our client. Our diversified platform, access to capital sources and local market knowledge ensured Stave Properties that they received the best loan execution, tailored to their business plan."
