Walker & Dunlop Arranges HUD Refis for Senior Living in Nebraska, Wisconsin

Walker & Dunlop recently arranged refinancing for Reena Senior Living in Fort Atkinson, WI; Fallbrook Assisted Living and Memory Care in Lincoln, NE; and Oxbow Living Center in Ashland, NE. Totaling $35,609,400, the transactions included the following: 

  • For Reena Senior Living, Walker & Dunlop’s Kevin Giusti, Matthew Lund and team provided the refinancing on behalf of the client, Tukka Properties, and the lender, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, for $14,687,400. 
  • On the $13,317,400 Fallbrook deal, Giusti, Mikko Erkamaa and team financed this deal on behalf of MJ Senior Living and HUD. 
  • On the $7,604,600 Oxbow transaction, Giusti, Erkamaa and team again represented MJ Senior Living and HUD. 

“Like every other senior housing provider in the country, MJ Senior Housing was dealing with elevated staffing expenses and other operating expense increases, and they were able to manage these operating difficulties while still doing multiple HUD refinances,” said Giusti
