Ariel Property Advisors


Closed on 46 financial transactions during 2022

Generated a deal volume exceeding $155.6 million

Manhattan-based Ariel Property Advisors is a commercial real estate and advisory firm offering clients Capital Services, Investment Sales and Research. In response to last year’s volatile market, which was caused by interest rates rising at an unprecedented speed, Ariel decided to double the size of its Capital Services brokerage team to better advise clients about their financing options.

The brokerage team now includes Partner Paul McCormick, Senior Directors Matthew Dzbanek, Matt Swerdlow, and Eli Weisblum, and new additions, Directors Ben Schlegel, Ryan Schwartz and Hagay Yuhjtman, who deliver tailored solutions to help clients weather the financial storm and identify lenders that are actively looking for new business. Ariel ended 2022 closing 46 transactions for multifamily, mixed-use, medical office, industrial and development assets throughout the country totaling $155,565,000.

Ariel’s Capital Services brokers work on an exclusive basis and run a process on each assignment, tapping into their nationwide network of lenders to ensure that they match each property with the right financial institution. A back-office team of analysts and associates underwrite each deal, producing a robust Offering Memorandum for each loan, which enables lenders to make informed and quick decisions when presented with an opportunity.

These are some of the reasons we selected Paul McCormick, Matthew Dzbanek, Matt Swerdlow and Eli Weisblum for inclusion in the 2023 Connect CRE Top Mortgage Brokers and Lenders Awards. These awards recognize industry professionals who have demonstrated the highest commercial real estate finance standards.
