NorthMarq’s Miami office brings on 20-year CRE industry veteran, Michael Balan

MIAMI, FLORIDA (January 28, 2019) – NorthMarq announces the addition of Michael Balan to its Miami regional office. In his new role, Balan will assist clients locally and nationally with the entire capital stack, including equity, preferred equity, mezzanine debt, and permanent first mortgages. He will leverage NorthMarq’s established strong, long-term relationships with institutional providers of capital, including life insurance companies, Freddie Mac, Fannie Mae, FHA/HUD, conduits, banks, mortgage REITs and debt funds to create financing solutions for investors and developers.

Balan arrives at NorthMarq having been involved in the commercial real estate industry since 1997 and closing more than $1 billion in commercial real estate loans. Prior to joining NorthMarq, Balan worked in traditional banking, franchise finance, and CMBS lending before transitioning to a regional mortgage banking company, where he received multiple production awards. He has also worked at Republic National Bank in New York City.

”Michael should immediately provide an impact to our equity and loan production,” said Jeff Robertson, senior vice president/managing director of NorthMarq’s Miami office. “His background as a seasoned CRE professional should give our correspondent lenders comfort, and his local knowledge and contacts will serve him well. We welcome him to the Miami NorthMarq office.”

Michael is an active member of the International Council of Shopping Centers and the founding vice president of one of the most prolific chapters of Business Networking International. He is a licensed mortgage broker in the State of Florida and holds a Bachelor degree in Management from the University of Maryland.

NorthMarq Capital’s Miami office welcomes industry veteran Paul Whalen to team as vice president

MIAMI (April 4, 2017) – NorthMarq Capital, a leader in financing commercial real estate throughout the United States, announced today that Paul Whalen has joined the firm as vice president. Whalen will operate out of the firm’s Miami regional office.

In his new role at NorthMarq, Whalen will deploy on behalf of his clients the full range of investor capital, from fixed rate first mortgages to subordinate debt to equity to meet the client’s financial objectives. Capital providers include NorthMarq’s correspondent life insurance companies, CMBS lenders, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and HUD as well as pension funds, private equity funds and family offices.

Whalen has been a part of the commercial/multifamily real estate industry since 1980 as an investor and financial intermediary and has closed over $2.5 billion in real estate financings and sales in eleven different states. Most recently, he was a managing director in the Miami office of Ackman Ziff, and prior to that was principal in Whalen Realty Capital as well as a founder of LienBase, a series of partnerships which purchased real estate tax lien certificates nationally. Whalen began his career as Pension Fund Administrator for IUOE Local 675 in 1980 and as CIO had responsibility for $40 million in real estate equity. He also helped establish the Florida office of what’s now HFF, LP.

“We are thrilled to have Paul join the Miami team,” said Jeff Robertson, senior vice president/managing director of NorthMarq’s Miami office. “His decades of experience across the entire capital stack, paired with a broad range of financing options, will allow him to bring innovative solutions to our client relationships.”
