UNIONDALE, NY (September 12, 2018) – Arbor Realty Trust, Inc. (NYSE:ABR), a real estate investment trust and national direct lender specializing in loan origination and servicing for multifamily, seniors housing, healthcare, and other diverse commercial real estate assets, recently funded an FHA 223(f) loan in Terrell, Texas.

Stuart Gans of Arbor’s Dallas office originated the loan. “Arbor helped our client take advantage of the amazing benefits of the FHA refinance program for market-rate properties,” said Gans. “The borrower wanted a fixed-interest rate for the entire length of the loan, and needed funds for critical and noncritical repairs.
