San Francisco – Cohen Financial, a national real estate capital services firm, today announced that it has secured an $8 million refinancing for the 777 North First Street office building in San Jose, California. The more than 90,000 square feet, six-story Class B property is well located on a light rail station. The property is located near the San Jose airport and the Santa Clara County Administrative Center. The building is currently more than 90 percent leased.

Paul Schroeder, a Managing Director in Cohen Financial’s San Francisco office, secured the fixed-rate, long-term, financing. The lender is StanCorp Mortgage Investors, LLC, a Cohen Financial correspondent life company.    

“The challenge we faced with this loan was the ever changing rent roll as the building is occupied by many tenants,” said Mr. Schroeder. “The desirable location and borrower relationship were both drivers for the lender to finance the property.”

Cohen Financial’s Loan Administration platform is servicing Mr. Schroeder’s loan.
