Cushman & Wakefield, Greystone Add Alex Basile to Bolster Joint Multifamily Platform
Real estate services firm Cushman & Wakefield and commercial real estate finance company Greystone Servicing Company, LLC have added Alex Basile to the firms’ joint capital markets equity, debt and structured finance group. Basile will serve as an executive director based out of Washington, DC.
Basile joins the Greystone Servicing Company, LLC / Cushman & Wakefield alliance from Newmark, where he served as a managing director and primarily focused on arranging debt, preferred equity and mezzanine financing for commercial and multifamily transactions. Prior to his role at Newmark, he spent ten years at Cantor Commercial Real Estate, where he managed production for the Washington, DC office and held positions in the securitization groups.
Throughout his career, Basile has placed over $5 billion of senior mortgage and mezzanine real estate loans across all asset classes.
In December 2021, Cushman & Wakefield finalized its strategic investment of $500 million in Greystone and acquired a 40% stake in Greystone’s agency, FHA and servicing businesses.
Lisa McDuffie arrives at ConnectCRE via REALTOR® world, where she served for nearly two decades as communications director for one of the nation’s largest REALTOR® organizations. She supported two membership-elected presidents who were commercial real estate practitioners, and managed the communications initiatives of the organization’s commercial special interest group.
When not following the latest commercial real estate news, Lisa is zeroed in on her charismatic off-the-track thoroughbred as she makes the transition from an utterly failed racehorse to a lovely show hunter.
