CBRE/NE’s John Kelly and Matt Marshall arranged the financing through Fannie Mae on behalf of the client.

“It was a pleasure to work on behalf of the team at PhilMor Real Estate Investments,” said Kelly. “We were able to secure financing using the Fannie Mae Green Rewards program, which provided great financing terms for this value-add opportunity,”

“This acquisition allows us to play to our strengths of acquiring value-add apartment communities,” said the PhilMor REI team of Phil Bakalchuk and Morgan Hanlon. “We look forward to rolling out our planned improvements and taking advantage of the Green Rewards program to lower overall utility usage and expenses at this asset.”
