Bethesda-based commercial real estate financing firm Walker & Dunlop has purchased commercial mortgage brokerage and advisory firm Deerwood Real Estate Capital, which is based in New Jersey.

Deerwood specializes in sourcing debt and equity. Sixteen commercial loan originators will join Walker & Dunlop’s Capital Markets Group.

“Deerwood marks another fantastic acquisition of talented loan originators in a highly strategic market as Walker & Dunlop continues its dramatic growth towards becoming the premier commercial real estate finance company in the United States. Deerwood’s long-standing track record of delivering exceptional results for its clients in the greater New York region is what made this acquisition so attractive,” Walker & Dunlop Chairman and CEO Willy Walker said in a statement.
