Berkadia Adds Mark Feldman to San Francisco Office, Expanding Investment Sales Capacity

SAN FRANCISCO, CA, November 15, 2018 – Berkadia today announced the addition of Managing Director Mark Feldman to its San Francisco office. Feldman joins an experienced team of mortgage banking professionals with more than $1.8 billion in financing across the last 3 years. He’ll be the first dedicated investment sales resource in the San Francisco office and will report to Senior Vice President and Head of Investment Sales Keith Misner.

“Mark has more than 30 years of experience in commercial real estate and it shows in the volume and complexity of deals he’s been a part of across his career,” said Misner. “He is a natural fit as the investment sales lead in San Francisco as we seek to deepen and diversify our relationships and market penetration.”

Feldman joins Berkadia from Ground Matrix, a West Coast-focused brokerage and advisory services firm. He has successfully represented institutional, large private capital, syndication and affordable housing investors in the acquisition and disposition of multifamily assets, as well as advised on capital market needs. He has more than $1.7 billion in multifamily transactions throughout the U.S, including over $200 million in commercial transactions including shopping centers, single tenant NNN and warehouse assets.

“The northern California market remains incredibly competitive as the technology industry and population growth continue to drive investor interest in the region,” said Feldman. “I’m thrilled to join Berkadia’s team in order to broaden engagement with clients and partners and bring the full complement of our services to the table in order to help them create value in this market.”

“Our team has a strong track record of success with clients in Northern California and across the U.S., sourcing creative and comprehensive financing solutions,” said Clay Akiwenzie, managing director. “Adding Mark really rounds out our product offering. His deep relationships throughout the region will help us finally deliver a comprehensive set of local options for any business plan, whether that is to buy, sell, finance, renovate or exchange.”

Prior to Ground Matrix, Feldman served as Executive Vice President of Marketing and Sales for Universal Paragon Corporation. In this role, he oversaw all pre-marketing and sales functions for three major developments in San Francisco totaling nearly 3,400 units. He previously spent time at Colliers International and Hendricks & Partners.

Feldman earned his Bachelor of Arts from the University of California, Berkeley.
