Keith Rosso is a Managing Director in Berkadia’s Los Angeles office. He joined Berkadia in 2021 and is responsible for originating debt and structured finance transactions nationally, across all property types.

Throughout his lending and mortgage banking career, Rosso closed over 260 transactions totaling more than $3.6 billion in volume. Notable transactions include a $215-million CMBS refinance loan on a portfolio of 14 Southern California retail assets, $172.9-million Fannie Mae portfolio financing for 14 multifamily properties, totaling 1,334 units, located throughout the U.S., and a $72-million bank loan to facilitate the recapitalization of an industrial asset in Simi Valley, CA.

Rosso began his professional career in 2010 at New York’s AllianceBernstein as an associate on the Commercial Real Estate Credit Research team. His focus was on evaluating investment opportunities in the commercial-mortgage-backed securities sector.

But it was his 2008 appointment as Chairman of the Zoning Board in his hometown in Bergen County, NJ that initially sparked Rosso’s interest in commercial real estate. He simultaneously served as the youngest elected member of his town’s Board of Education and chaired the committee responsible for negotiating collective bargaining agreements with four of the school district’s unions.

Rosso holds a Bachelor of Engineering in Industrial Engineering from Stevens Institute of Technology.

These are just a few reasons we chose Rosso as one of California’s 2022 Next Generation Award winners. Connect Media’s sixth annual Next Generation Awards recognize young leaders in the commercial real estate industry who are likely to be influential for years to come.
