Hunt Real Estate Capital, a leader in financing commercial real estate throughout the United States, announced today that it has opened a new office in Washington, DC.  The office will be led by Bryan Cullen, Managing Director at Hunt Real Estate Capital, who will relocate with the team from Tysons Corner, Virginia.

The new office will be located at 888 17th NW Street, Suite 300 and will be a shared office with several other Hunt businesses, including Hunt Development Group and Hunt Alternative Energy.

The team in the new office will focus on originating Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae, including small balance loans, as well as bridge financing and a new seven-year fixed-rate product through Hunt Real Estate Capital’s Proprietary Loan Group.  This move allows Hunt to consolidate offices and is a more efficient use of office space.

“The location near Farragut Square and three metros will allow us to attract and retain new talent as DC becomes the place to live and work,” noted Cullen.  “We believe that having a downtown presence will also lead to greater visibility and presence in the local real estate scene.”

Hunt Real Estate Capital finances all types of multifamily rental housing including small balance loans, market rate, workforce housing and affordable communities.

“We have always valued the personal touch with the resources of a large company but the attitude of a small and entrepreneurial one,” added Cullen.
