Managing director Allan Freedman and associate director Nick Provost specialize in multifamily finance in Berkadia Los Angeles. Freedman has consistently been among the top originators for Berkadia, having closed approximately $5 billion in financing. Freedman joined Berkadia in 1999 and has many years of experience in debt origination (construction, bridge and permanent loans) and underwriting on multifamily communities throughout the country. He has extensive knowledge of Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and FHA/HUD programs.
Since joining Berkadia in 2016, Provost has participated in the origination, underwriting and processing of more than $3 billion of debt, equity and mezzanine transactions. Prior to joining Berkadia, Provost focused on the underwriting of CMBS, balance sheet and mezzanine loans across all asset classes, where he underwrote and analyzed more than $1.5 billion in transaction volume.
These are some of the reasons we selected Freedman and Provost for inclusion in our first-ever Top Mortgage Brokers and Lenders Awards. These awards recognize industry professionals who have demonstrated the highest standards in commercial real estate finance.
