Matt Franke appears as featured guest on Diamonds in the Rough in Real Estate

Matt Franke, senior vice president in NorthMarq's Houston market, joined David Flores on his video blog Diamonds in The Rough on May 29. The discussion focused on the current "Covid Market;" upcoming forecasts; the reliability of agency lenders such as Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and FHA/HUD; and the reemergence of life company lenders. "But other debt platforms, such as CMBS, remain very locked up right now and not a viable source. So we need those groups to get back into the market in a competitive way before you can start to see any level of normalcy," said Franke.
