The Top Direct Lenders & Intermediaries rankings were originally published in May 2003 and are based on responses to NREI's Top Lender Survey questionnaire. The Top Direct Lenders listing reflects total dollars financed during the 2002 calendar year and includes firms financing direct loans, credit lines, CMBS lending and other forms of direct investment. The second survey, beginning on page 38, ranks financial intermediaries, including mortgage brokers and financial firms that arranged or facilitated transactions during 2002. Please note: in some cases, listings have been adjusted based on new information.
