Lendmarq Expands Sales and Operations Teams to Tackle Accelerating Demand for Private Real Estate Credit

MIAMI–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Lendmarq ( or “the Company”), a specialty real estate lender providing bridge and term loan products to residential real estate investors, today announced the expansion of its sales and operations team with the hire of 22 new professionals. The additions double Lendmarq’s total headcount as the Company continues to scale to meet the steady increase in demand for its services.

The joining of these new professionals – who come from some of the real estate industry’s leading private lenders – reflects Lendmarq’s success in capitalizing on the opportunity presented by today’s supply-constrained property finance market.
