National Real Estate Investor is pleased to present its fifth annual Top Real Estate Lender Survey, ranking the most active lenders and intermediaries in North America based on loans arranged and/or committed in 1995. Due to space, only the top 25 firms are listed here, but copies of the entire survey can be purchased from Intertec Direct Marketing Department at (770) 618-0381.
Information for this list was provided by companies who returned survey forms. While efforts were made to ensure that all appropriate lenders had an opportunity to participate in this ranking, if your company was not included and you feel it should be next year, please contact Barbara Katinsky, (700) 618-0160.
