“Diamond at Prospect demonstrates the integration of the CBRE Affordable Housing platform by providing the buyer and the seller—both valued, long-term clients—with seamless execution from listing through closing,” said Robert Sheppard, Managing Director, CBRE Affordable Housing.

“This loan for Hamilton Zanze was a win for our client. Our debt team secured one of the lowest rates of any CBRE-Fannie Mae loan and closed within 24 hours of locking the rate,” continued Sheppard.

“This was a flawless execution by CBRE Affordable Housing and Andrew Behrens and I look forward to many more,” said David Nelson, Managing Director, Hamilton Zanze Real Estate Investments.
