Eastern Union Unit Offers Reduced Pricing on Agency Deals

Two of the top brokers at Eastern Union will lead a new, multifamily financing unit that charges a quarter-point fee for refinancing properties backed by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac, transactions known as agency refinancings.

The newly launched “Multi-Family Group” — the sole unit within the firm that is offering the new pricing — arises from the merger of two company teams managed by Washington, D.C.-based Marc Tropp and by Brooklyn-based Michael Muller.

Along with reduced pricing for agency refi’s, the Multi-Family Group has set a half-point fee for agency acquisitions. The two discounts also apply to CMBS multifamily transactions.

“The value of a broker is stronger than ever as we strive to overcome the challenges posed by this pandemic,” said Muller. “We can structure, package, create the competition and work through every step of the process.”
