The four person team works with developers, owners, and investors in multifamily (market rate and affordable) and CRE properties throughout the country.

The team has closed a total of $1.96 billion in 125 transactions through mid-2018, including a $328 million, 8-property refinance (2011), which won 2nd place for the “Best Financial Structure Category,” as judged by Commercial Property Executive.
Ms. Proctor began her real estate career in New York City with Prudential Real Estate Investors (PREI), working in all facets of the business: asset management, mortgage loan origination, development, and acquisitions and sales. After two years she was promoted and transferred to Chicago covering 14 major Midwest markets in 10 states. While in Chicago, she sold $86 million of properties, was on a national team to create a $350 million industrial REIT, and closed a $137 million joint venture acquisition with the Hines Organization.
In 1986, Ms. Proctor was promoted and transferred to Atlanta where she spent the next 10 years with Prudential. There she specialized in the sales and acquisitions of all types of investment-grade properties for PREI’s pension fund clients, and developed a network of developers, brokers and other industry leaders throughout the southeast and southwest. She was promoted to Vice President, becoming the first woman production Vice President in the company and was featured in Georgia Trends’ 1991 Young Leaders in Real Estate. In 1996, Ms. Proctor left Prudential to raise her young family. In late 2010, Ms. Proctor returned to her real estate investment career after a 14-year hiatus. In 2011, Ms. Proctor joined the Atlanta originations team of Centerline Capital Group, now Hunt Real Estate Capital.
Throughout her career Ms. Proctor has served as mentor and guide to young women entering the real estate professions and now to those seeking to re-enter. In October 2016, Ms. Proctor was recognized as one of Real Estate Forum’s “2016 Women of Influence.” She holds an MBA in Finance from the University of North Carolina Kenan-Flagler School of Business.
