Walker & Dunlop, Inc. was named the 13th-largest commercial real estate lender in the United States in 2011 in the Mortgage Bankers Association’s Annual Origination Rankings.
“Being the 13th-largest commercial real estate lender in the country in 2011 is exceptional. Walker & Dunlop was the 45th largest lender in the country in 2007 and due to our growth during the financial crisis we finished 2010 as 11th,” said Willy Walker, chairman and chief executive officer of Walker & Dunlop. “Staying within the top 15 in a year when large commercial banks, life-insurance companies and Wall Street banks returned to the market in a significant way proves the strength of Walker & Dunlop’s brand and client reputation.”
In 2011, Walker & Dunlop originated $4 billion in commercial real estate loans. As of Dec. 31, 2011, the Company serviced $16.8 billion of commercial mortgages and asset managed more than 1,800 properties across the United States.
