PMZ Realty Capital LLC Closes Record Amount Deals in 2013


December 3, 2013. New York, NY — PMZ Realty Capital LLC, a national boutique real estate investment-banking firm focused on creating cutting edge capital structures for their clients, reported today a record-breaking amount of deals in 2013. With a total dollar volume of $867,000,000 representing financing for 57 hotels, this year marks the most successful year for the firm to date and emphasizes their extensive transaction history. This year’s deals included major hospitality brands including Marriott, Hilton, IHG, Starwood, Choice, Best Western, La Quinta plus several independent hotels.

“We had a great year and were able to close deals from coast to coast in the U.S. We saw most of our activity in Southern half of the United States, but were involved in deals just about everywhere,” stated Michael Sonnabend, Managing Member, PMZ Realty Capital LLC. “We expect this positive trend in financing to continue throughout 2014 and the next couple of years. There is plenty of equity and debt capital available and tremendous pent-up demand from the hangover of the recession. These will be very active years in the hospitality industry and we are thrilled to be working with hoteliers to help them achieve the optimal financing structure for their hotels.”

“PMZ Realty Capital LLC is ideally situated to get our clients the most favorable execution in terms of both proceeds and costs based on our experience with closing hundreds of deals over the past several years and our strong relationships with all the major capital providers in the hospitality industry,” said Peter Berk, President, PMZ Realty Capital- Hotel Finance Group. “The biggest challenge we see today is attaining required leverage to pay off existing financing. We help our clients do that with creative structures tailored to each particular situation. With the robust number of closed deals this year alone, we’ve proven without a doubt no one finances more hotels than our firm.”
