Former CBRE Group to Accelerate Berkadia's Texas Growth Efforts

NEW YORK--()--Berkadia, an industry-leading commercial real estate company, today announced the hiring of an eight-person multifamily investment sales team in Houston. The team previously worked together in CBRE’s Capital Markets Multi-Housing Group based in Houston, where they focused on Houston, San Antonio and other Texas markets. All will report to Head of Investment Sales Keith Misner, effective immediately.

"This group of individuals is known throughout the industry as one of the top multifamily investment sales teams in the country, specifically in Houston," said Misner. "Adding a team of this caliber—which has worked together for a number of years—immediately strengthens our Texas presence. We're truly excited for them to join Berkadia."

The team is led by Senior Managing Director Ryan Epstein and Managing Director Clint Duncan and includes Associate Directors Wes Breeding and Jennifer Ray. They will work closely with Berkadia's existing brokers and mortgage bankers in Houston and across the state to provide integrated investment sales, mortgage banking and servicing solutions.

"Berkadia is one of a kind because its platform strengthens the company's ability to offer clients comprehensive real estate solutions," said Epstein. "Our entire team looks forward to elevating the company's presence in Texas and leveraging a full suite of products to help current and future clients alike."

Since 2006, the team has marketed and sold assets valued at more than $4.5 billion and has continually been ranked as top producers nationally, working with a diverse client base of REITs, pension funds, private investment companies and local and national developers.
