Walker & Dunlop No. 1 with Fannie Mae

Walker & Dunlop, of Bethesda, a commercial real estate finance company, announced that it was ranked as the largest Fannie Mae DUS lender by volume in 2014, at $3.6 billion.  This is the third consecutive year Walker & Dunlop has been Fannie Mae’s largest partner in multifamily lending. Fannie Mae was the largest supplier of capital to the multifamily marketplace in 2014, providing $28.9 billion. Nearly all of those funds were delivered via the Delegated Underwriting and Servicing program, which relies on shared risk by private lenders and Fannie Mae. The private lenders originate the multifamily loans and retain some of the credit risk. “It is a huge accomplishment to be ranked No. 1 with Fannie Mae once again,” Willy Walker, Walker & Dunlop’s chairman and CEO, said in a statement. “Maintaining this ranking in an increasingly competitive marketplace against some of the world’s largest financial services firms is a huge testament to the Walker & Dunlop team and our partnership with Fannie Mae.”
