These mortgages are backed by first liens on 72 commercial, multifamily and manufactured housing community properties located in 19 states and the District of Columbia.

Follow-Up to First-Ever Deal

This new transaction follows the firm's first-ever CMBS called CFCRE 2011-C1 in April.  The transaction was backed by 38 loans in 67 properties.

The firm's debut new-issue CMBS transaction was backed by loans originated by Cantor Commercial Real Estate (CCRE), a real estate financing business formed by Cantor Fitzgerald and CIM Group in August 2010.

This $634.5 million deal is also noteworthy for the CMBS sector since it is the first time in close to 10 years that a newcomer into the business has originated, securitized and lead-managed its own deal.

In June, ASR interviewed Shawn Matthews, chief executive officer of Cantor and Anthony Orso, chief executive officer of CCRE regarding the firm's first CMBS offering and their perspective on their middle-market niche. To read the entire interview, please click here.
