NEW YORK, NY – March 23, 2015: Eastern Union Funding, the fastest-growing commercial real estate mortgage brokerage serving the national sector, negotiated the purchase money mortgage for an Upper West Side three-building portfolio on behalf of Manhattan-based ABJ Properties.
Located on the Upper West Side, the mostly-multifamily buildings traded for $7.5 million. Brothers Ben and Joe Soleimani of ABJ Properties purchased the 45 residential units and two commercial spaces from Action Housing LLC.
Eastern Union President Ira Zlotowitz and Meir Kessner, senior managing director, negotiated a five-year non-recourse loan at 3.125 percent with a regional balance sheet lender.
“Certainty of execution is not an option in this market, it’s an imperative. In this department, our client never fails to deliver. That lets us do what we do best and produce a highly competitive acquisition loan,” Zlotowitz said.
