San Francisco, California (December 3, 2019) — A new era in commercial real estate finance begins with today’s launch of Gantry, the new name and brand identity for the mortgage banking firm formerly known as Newmark Realty Capital. As Gantry—embodying the word which refers to the scaffolding that supports a rocket before take-off—the company rededicates itself to supporting the missions of its borrowers, lenders and staff. The Gantry brand was chosen with intention, to build on a strong, established business platform propelled by the energy of the company’s roster of experienced and burgeoning talent, and to emphasize the thoughtful, and sometimes different approach the firm takes to everything it does.
“Nearly three decades ago, we established a unique business model for our industry whereby the owners of the firm were all personally engaged with and accountable to borrowers and lenders on all transactions,” said Mitchell Zeemont, Principal with Gantry. “We founded our company in the Bay Area, and we’ve fed off the dynamic energy of our local business culture, and grown it across our eight U.S. offices. We’ve attracted a talented staff that has excelled through the years, and developed a commercial mortgage banking practice that has stood the test of time and economic cycles. We’ve always been committed to providing quality, due diligence, and offering credible quotes and great financing, and we have made our mark by delivering on that. We will continue to provide best-in-industry service by drawing on our collective experience, while paving the way for talented newer owners and staff to continually energize the Gantry platform.”
Gantry, a privately held company based in San Francisco, is a full-service mortgage banking firm with an extensive lineup of correspondent lenders and loan production, closing and servicing capabilities. Established in 1991, Gantry is currently staffed by over 75 employees in regional offices throughout the United States.
