Co-leads Newmark's National Student Debt and Structured Finance team

As a team, closed more than $2 billion over the past three years

Newmark Senior Managing Director Ian Walker leads the National Student Housing Debt and Structured Finance team alongside partners Ben Roelke and Trent Houchin. Walker represents private and institutional clients, including some of the top institutional and private equity investors in the country. 

Walker focuses exclusively on placing debt and equity for both student and conventional multifamily housing. He works with clients to develop creative, bespoke solutions for the capital needs of each deal. Despite working through a challenging capital markets environment, Walker and his team have closed more than $2 billion in transaction volume over the last three years.

Prior to Newmark, Walker worked in CBRE’s Debt & Structured Finance group in London, where he helped build the firm’s Capital Markets team. The group was responsible for raising capital for developers and operators to build and buy multifamily and student housing properties throughout the United Kingdom.  After returning to the firm’s Dallas office, Walker rejoined the Debt and Structured Finance team there.

These are just a few reasons we chose Ian Walker as one of Connect CRE Texas’ 2023 Next Generation Award winners. Connect Media’s seventh annual Next Generation Awards recognize young leaders who will have a strong influence on the commercial real estate industry.
