PMZ Realty Capital Secures First Ever CMBS LOAN for Tru by Hilton


PMZ Realty Capital LLC, a boutique real estate investment banking firm, has secured the first ever CMBS loan for Tru by Hilton property. PMZ Realty Capital specializes in hotel real estate investment banking nationwide, with an expertise in sourcing capital.

“PMZ Realty Capital is thrilled to complete the very first Tru by Hilton capital market transaction using a CMBS loan,” said Michael H. Sonnabend, Managing Member, PMZ Realty Capital. “The CMBS loan met RevPAR Development LLC’s strategic goals. Customer success is our main focus and by working closely with lenders, PMZ Realty Capital guided a successful outcome.”

This CMBS loan was a 10 year, non-recourse loan with 30-year amortization. Opened in McDonough, Georgia in 2017, the 90-room, the four story hotel had limited operating history and the challenge was convincing underwriters to do the cash out refinancing. Working with underwriters, PMZ Realty Capital offered guidance on the unique niche of the hotel, Hliton’s brand strength, and the operating capabilities of RevPAR Development LLC.

“This cash out financing is a boost for RevPAR Development LLC”, said Pete Patel, President & CEO
RevPAR Development LLC. “This is our second transaction using PMZ Realty Capital in the last twelve months.  You quickly appreciate PMZ’s steady guidance, detailed process and proactive advocacy to complete the refinancing quickly. Completing this transaction allows RevPAR Development LLC to grow and to increase financial flexibility.”
