February 18, 2020, 08:42 AM

BankFinancial NA (“the Bank”), the national banking association subsidiary of BankFinancial Corporation announced the expansion of BankFinancial Commercial Real Estate Capital Markets. BankFinancial Commercial Real Estate Capital Markets recently expanded its product line and commercial banking staff to provide a comprehensive array of commercial real estate loan, deposit and treasury solutions across virtually every asset type to investors and management companies on a national basis, as well as continuing its selective apartment building and commercial real estate portfolio in selected regional markets.

BankFinancial Commercial Real Estate is led by President John Manos, a 30-year veteran of national commercial real estate lending and Vicky Arroyo, Executive Vice President – Chicago, with two decades’ experience in Chicago commercial real estate and community development lending, most recently with MB Financial Bank. The team currently consists of 12 commercial real estate bankers located in Chicago, IL, Denver, CO, Dallas, TX and Tampa, FL with investor relationships nationwide.

“BankFinancial Commercial Real Estate Capital Markets now offers loan products from $1 million up to $20 million in multi-family, retail, office, self-storage, industrial, hospitality and healthcare, including higher-leverage bridge, construction, mezzanine and permanent financing available on a limited- or non-recourse basis.  Loan structures available include interest-only, balloon and full-amortization payments.  With our placement fee typically 50% less than our competition, our unique platform offers a cost-effective solution to all types of project sponsors on a national basis.” said John Manos, President of BankFinancial Commercial Real Estate.

“BankFinancial Commercial Real Estate Capital Markets capabilities enable us to focus on meeting the exact needs of the real estate investor, either through a Capital Markets credit product or with a bank loan portfolio solution, if eligible.   In this manner, we can benefit from increased non-interest income or higher interest income, and a greater return on investment with respect to human capital and marketing resources.  Taken together, this expansion is expected to materially improve commercial banking non-interest income and may create some additional growth opportunities with respect to our loan portfolios during 2020.” said F. Morgan Gasior, Chief Executive Officer of the Bank.
