Walker & Dunlop expands with senior housing team in Chicago

Walker & Dunlop, Inc. has added a team of five property sales brokers in Chicago, expanding the company’s multifamily property sales platform to the Midwest. Managing directors Mark Myers and Josh Jandris and vice presidents Jordyn Berger, Alex Vice and Mike Surak are focused on originating and executing on the full continuum of senior housing property sales across the United States.

“We have been extremely focused on building out our multifamily property sales platform across the United States, and the addition of this talented team in Chicago both expands our geographic footprint and provides an entry point into the active senior housing sector,” said executive vice president Greg Engler. “The team’s expertise in this niche segment of the multifamily market along with its long-term care platform will complement our established senior housing finance capabilities and provide additional value to our clients.”

The team will work closely with Walker & Dunlop’s senior housing finance group which originated over $900 million of senior housing debt financing volume in 2018. “Joining Walker & Dunlop gives our team the opportunity to be a major contributor to the company’s strategic growth over the next several years, particularly as it expands the scale of its property sales footprint,” said Myers.

Prior to joining Walker & Dunlop, Berger, Myers, Jandris, Surak and Vice were part of the Institutional Property Advisors (IPA) senior housing group at Marcus & Millichap. The team has closed over $5.3 billion of senior housing transactions during their careers.

“We are excited to be part of such an exceptional brand and platform that will contribute to our team’s success,” Jandris said.
