JD and David have worked together as lenders, brokers and commercial real estate investment fund managers. Their continued success is due to their partnership: David’s modeling brilliance and rigorous underwriting fluency, amplified by JD’s gift of problem solving and crafting deals that add value to all of their constituents. They built Carnegie Capital to focus on sourcing and structuring the best-fit finance for their clients across the commercial real estate spectrum. Carnegie thrives on the three principles of Access, Expertise and Execution. JD and David work tirelessly to ensure that clients a) have access to all of the right funding sources, b) fully benefit from Carnegie’s expertise in commercial real estate finance and deal structuring and c) execute, making it through to closing, no matter how many obstacles appear along the way.
Clients benefit from our unequaled access to the most effective capital sources across the country. We have been direct lenders, investors and brokers, and so our relationships, reputation and network ensure that each deal is reviewed with every appropriate lender. From local banks to life companies, from private lenders to regional banks and from Wall Street firms to national lenders, we do not rest until we find the right match for your financing needs.
With over $9 billion of closed financing, our principals know exactly where to look to uncover value in your project. We analyze and underwrite your loan request to underscore its strengths and tailor the most competitive debt for your needs. Our 10+ years of expertise in commercial finance enables us to work closely with our lenders’ underwriters and credit committee to ensure that they too realize the full value of your property – ultimately allowing you to achieve your business plan.
We are only effective if we close. That’s why we are a relentless advocate for your loan all the way through the appraisal, underwriting, loan committee and closing. We manage and effectively present the due diligence to eliminate surprises throughout the process so that on closing day, all of the wires are released and your loan is fully funded.
