Walker & Dunlop Backs Proptech Company Fortress Technology

Nashville-based Fortress Technology Solutions, a real estate technology firm that develops property management software for multifamily owners and operators, has entered into a strategic partnership and received its first outside investment from Walker & Dunlop.

Fortress’ software platform provides users with real-time performance data and insight into their multifamily properties. By teaming with Walker & Dunlop, Fortress will offer clients business intelligence through the combination of real time property performance and immediate insight into their debt portfolios and refinance opportunities in one place.

“This investment aligns with our Drive to ’25 goal of growing our presence in the small balance lending space,” said Aaron Perlis, CTO of Walker & Dunlop. “By combining our core lending software solutions directly with Fortress’ platform, we can provide these owner/operators with immediate insight into their debt portfolio and refinance opportunities in one place, further accelerating growth across Walker & Dunlop’s lending businesses and growing Fortress’ client base.”
