Sabal Launches CRE Loan Program, Adds Industry Veteran to Lead

Newport Beach, CA-based Sabal Capital Partners, LLC expanded its leadership team to coincide with the launch of its CRE Loan Program, a non-agency affiliated debt solution for core commercial properties nationwide. Robert (Bob) Restrick (pictured) joined as managing director and head of Commercial Real Estate Lending.

Sabal Capital Partners’ Pat Jackson says, “The results he has achieved spearheading the debt and investment operations of some of the country’s most notable financial firms prove he’s the right individual to lead Sabal’s growing CRE lending operations.”

The new CRE program expands the firm beyond its established small balance multifamily finance leadership, which Sabal remains committed to, into a more robust position as the small balance arena’s single-source debt solution. Sabal expects to complete $1 billion in transactions under this new program in 2019.

Prior to Sabal, Restrick served as the group head of Walker & Dunlop’s investment management business, overseeing the development of a new investment platform focused on Freddie Mac’s B-pieces. Previously, he led its commercial property funding business as CEO, and its national CMBS lending platform.
