Apartment Financing America Strategic Alliances

Apartment Financing America Strategic Partners

When you have spent a lifetime as a real estate developer, investor and mortgage broker, as we have, placing multifamily mortgages for the most sophisticated real estate investors in the world, you forge valuable relationships with principals and firms who, like yourself, have spent a lifetime providing their clients with sophisticated real estate transaction and support services. Some of these relationships arise to a level of symbiotic alliances that can provide tremendous benefits to the clients of both firms. We refer to such firms as strategic partners.

Our strategic partners are leaders in their field who are committed to providing their clients, and ours, with the highest levels of service and integrity. We are pleased to endorse our strategic partners here, along with the recommendation that all who visit avail themselves of their services.

Rockhall Funding

Rockhall Funding is an FHA MAP and LEAN lender. The MAP stands for Multifamily Accelerated Processing, it is a designation granted by the Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD) to fewer than 100 multifamily lenders in the world. The MAP designation means that HUD places so much trust in Rockhall Funding that they rely on us to perform much of the underwriting process and, to a great extent, HUD relies on Rockhall to share in the loan approval process.

Rockhall is also a licensed Ginnie Mae multifamily issuer; one of only 57 in the world. Ginnie Mae, which is an agency of the federal government, guarantees the FHA multifamily loans Rockhall originates; guarantees  backed by the full faith and credit of the United States.

What that means is that as a Ginnie Mae issuer, Rockhall Funding is licensed to issue Mortgage Backed Securities (MBS) that are guaranteed not to default, directly into the capital markets.

Being an FHA MAP lender and a Ginnie Mae Multifamily Issuer is very rare. Suffice it to say that Rockhall Funding, and by extension, Apartment Financing America, is one of a small handful of mortgage bankers that can deliver the absolutely lowest cost of capital on earth.

Rockhall Funding offers all FHA commercial loan programs and expertise in affordable and market-rate apartment and healthcare transactions nationwide. Like Apartment Financing America, Rockhall was originally created by a real estate developer, which uniquely positions the two firms to help you anticipate construction-related pitfalls that often cause delays and negatively impact profitability.

Since its doors opened in 1998, Rockhall has combined exceptional lending expertise with personalized service. Over the years we have developed tools and processes to help you successfully navigate FHA requirements and reach a successful outcome.

Whether you have worked with HUD before or not, Rockhall can help. Here are just a few reasons why you want us on your team:

We have the best toolbox. Known for developing creative solutions, our seasoned team can help you optimize your project financially, attract investors, and avoid unwanted surprises.

We don’t give up. We vet all projects thoroughly so, when we take on your deal, you can count on us to be “all in”. We have even closed loans that other lenders abandoned.

We walk in your shoes. One integrated, core team works with you throughout the process, anticipating and communicating exactly what is needed and providing prompt answers to all questions, whether environmental, credit, valuation, underwriting, or legal.

Our service doesn’t stop at closing. Our in-house servicing operation provides proactive customer care over the life of your loan.

At Rockhall, your success is our success. You can count on working with smart, dedicated people who are passionate about what they do. Our team takes the worry out of the process and delivers results that meet your goals.
