Founded in 2009, Beech Street is an originator, underwriter and servicer of multifamily commercial real estate loans and is one of the largest national providers of government-insured mortgage loans through the multifamily lending programs of Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and FHA. Through its scalable origination and servicing platform, Beech Street originated approximately $4 billion in loans in 2012, making the company the sixth largest agency originator in the country. Beech Street services a loan portfolio of approximately $10 billion.

"As we continue to expand our product capabilities and services for clients across our growing Commercial Banking business, this acquisition is a logical expansion of our already substantial commitment to the multifamily sector," said Michael Slocum, President of Capital One's Commercial Banking Group.  "The combination of Capital One's multifamily business and Beech Street will make us a top 5 national multifamily originator and one of the few institutions in the US capable of offering clients a one-stop banking solution encompassing a full range of banking services."

"The addition of Beech Street strengthens our multifamily business, provides a national presence, and enables us to meet the needs of clients in the multifamily sector with a complete set of banking services that includes agency program loans, bank balance sheet loans, treasury services, and capital markets solutions," said Rick Lyon, Head of Commercial Real Estate Banking, Capital One. "We have great respect for the experience, leadership, and unique expertise Beech Street founder and CEO Grace Huebscher and her exceptional management team bring to Capital One. Like us, Grace and team are passionate about the client. They are solution-oriented, and focused on seamless execution and ongoing customer service, all balanced with prudent risk management. We believe the market will see significant benefits from this powerful combination of industry-leading expertise, greater resources, and expanded capabilities," added Lyon.

"We share Capital One's vision of bringing together two complementary and high performing teams to boost our position in the multifamily space," said Huebscher. "We look forward to driving our business to the next level as an important part of Capital One's growing multifamily business."
