NEW YORK, March 1, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Emerald Creek Capital, a private equity fund out of Manhattan, NY has just refinanced a discounted note in less than 2 weeks. The borrower, an experienced California based real estate owner, was presented with an extraordinary opportunity by their lender. If they refinanced their loan within 2 weeks then they would receive a 30% discount on the payoff. With an original loan balance of $2,540,000 that meant the sponsor could save $700,000.
