Commercial Real Estate Division

Mezzanine Lending

Synergy Capital Markets provides mezzanine financing collateralized by either a direct lien on the underlying real estate or a lien on the ownership interests in the real estate. Loans range from $500 thousand (USD) to $100 million (USD) and are typically for a term of up to 10 years.


Synergy Capital Markets' mezzanine programs are very flexible and are used to bridge the gap between traditional debt financing and sponsor equity in a project. Repayment can be structured from interest only or fully amortizing.


Synergy Capital Markets' mezzanine program can be used by owner/operators to complete new acquisitions, refinance existing properties, finance build-to-suit developments, acquire equity interests of limited partners in existing partnerships, finance tenant improvements and to develop commercial projects which are positioned to produce income within a reasonable period of time.
