Last Chance to Submit for Top Mortgage Brokers and Lenders Awards

Connect Commercial Real Estate’s first-ever Top Mortgage Brokers and Lenders awards program has seen a strong response to date with submissions from across the nation. However, we strive to recognize as many commercial real estate professionals on the lending side of the industry as possible.

We know that there are more professionals out there for whom 2020 was both an especially productive year as well as a challenging one.

If you know a lending professional or team who excelled last year, we’d like to hear from you. Click here to submit a nomination. The deadline for submissions is June 4.

As with our other awards programs, we’re asking for your input to help us recognize the past year’s lending stars. We’ll be making our selections from among nominations of capital markets professionals at services firms, banks, insurance companies, alternative lenders and other organizations providing CRE debt.

We intend to recognize 10 winners from each of the regions we cover. That means brokers and lenders in California; Texas; New York/Tri-State; Chicago/Midwest; Boston/New England; Washington, DC; Atlanta/Southeast; Florida/Gulf Coast; Phoenix/Southwest; and Seattle/Northwest, as well as those who are active nationally. Final selections will be based on 2020 dollar volume.

Submit a nomination here.
