St. Paul, Minn.-based Oak Grove Capital, a provider of real estate financial services, recently hired Jeff Patton as managing director of conventional/market rate housing. Patton will partner with Neil Cullen and be responsible for leading Oak Grove Capital’s conventional/market rate multi-family originations.
“Jeff has been a force in multi-family lending for 20 years,” said Cullen, managing director at Oak Grove Capital. “Jeff’s history with Freddie Mac, Fannie Mae and FHA covers billions of dollars of successful financings, and his visibility, integrity and results-oriented approach make him an exciting hire for Oak Grove Capital.”
Patton comes to Oak Grove Capital from Grandbridge Real Estate Capital, where he was a senior vice president and directed the agency (Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and FHA) lending programs for Grandbridge. He is actively involved in multiple industry groups, including the National Multi-Housing Council and the Mortgage Bankers Association.
