M&TRCC Continues to expand; Created one-stop-shop financing solution for affordable housing

Baltimore, M.D., Feb. 16, 2021 – Coming off a very strong year of loan production, M&T Realty Capital Corporation® (MTRCC) finished 2020 with its largest ever loan servicing portfolio, totaling $22.67 billion. A significant driver of this success was a record-setting loan closing pace for Freddie Mac, HUD multifamily, and affordable housing finance.

“The MTRCC team immerses ourselves into the financing needs of our clients,” said Michael D. Berman, MTRCC president and CEO. “Our progress in 2020 is the result of our innovation during challenging times, our cross-organizational collaboration with our parent company, M&T Bank, and our sustained investments in the vital affordable housing sector.”
Other highlights of the year include:

  • MTRCC significantly grew its  affordable housing team,  opening new origination offices in Chicago, IL and Plano, TX, and hiring three director-level roles.
  • Received the coveted Freddie Mac Optigo® TAH License and renewed its focus on Fannie Mae MAH products.
  • Built new synergies between MTRCC’s affordable housing team and M&T Bank’s construction, bridge, and LIHTC offerings.
  • Ranked a top 10 HUD lender.
  • Nationally recognized for outstanding financial thought leadership content by the Gramercy Institute.

 “Our customers will continue to benefit as we further grow our financing options and strengthen synchronization between all parts of the bank,” said Jeff Rodman, MTRCC director of the affordable housing platform. “Our full-service approach reflects our mission to assist underserved people and regions, mirroring M&T Bank’s community-first model.”
