Published On: 08.12.13

Grandbridge is pleased to announce the addition of Steve Griffin as a vice president and multifamily specialist in the company’s Los Angeles office. 

Steve has extensive experience in structuring commercial and multifamily transactions for numerous capital sources including Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, FHA, insurance companies, CMBS lenders and banks.

For the past 20 years Steve has focused primarily on multifamily executions and has been involved with more than $40 billion of transactions throughout 11 western states.  He was the Managing Director for Freddie Mac’s Western Regional office for 15 years and during his tenure was responsible for overseeing the significant growth of the Freddie Mac portfolio and instrumental in creating a high quality book of business. 

Steve also served as Senior Vice President/Regional Production Manager for PNC Real Estate’s Western Region where he was responsible for leading the agency origination team with an annual production volume of approximately $1.25 billion.

His other commercial real estate experience includes several years with Dwyer-Curlett as a vice president charged with origination and underwriting of retail, office and industrial loans for the firm’s insurance company investors. Grandbridge purchased Dwyer-Curlett in November 2012.

"We have a real opportunity to expand our agency loan production business in the West by leveraging Steve's knowledge of the Western markets and customer base. I'm really pleased to have a professional of Steve's caliber join our team and represent Grandbridge," said Grandbridge Executive Vice President and National Production Matthew Rocco.

“While many of the faces in Los Angeles office remain the same, I’m excited to return as a member of Grandbridge. Grandbridge brings an expanded product line, a myriad of capital sources and enhanced servicing capabilities to serve our borrowers and lenders better than ever before,” said Griffin.

Steve is a member of the Mortgage Bankers Association, an active participant with the National Multifamily Housing Council and has served as a speaker and panelist at numerous multifamily industry conferences. He is a graduate of San Diego State University.
