Leveraging Greystone’s Full-Service Debt and Equity Capabilities and Unique Apartment Group’s Extensive Advisory Experience, Joint Venture Will Serve Market-Rate Multifamily Client Base
New York, NY (November 2, 2016) – Greystone, one of the nation’s preeminent real estate lending, investment and advisory companies, announced that it has welcomed Denver-based Unique Apartment Group, a wholly owned subsidiary of Unique Properties, Inc./TCN Worldwide, to the Greystone network. The new joint venture, Greystone Unique Apartment Group, focuses on providing a full range of multifamily advisory services, leveraging Greystone’s comprehensive financial platform and Unique Apartment Group’s multifamily sales expertise.
Greystone Unique Apartment Group, to be led by Scott Shwayder, a co-owner and principal of Unique Properties Inc./TCN Worldwide, combines the advantages of both organizations. Greystone’s national debt and advisory platform enhances Unique Apartment Group’s already strong investment sales presence in Colorado, and enables them to offer multifamily owners and investors an extensive array of Agency and proprietary debt options.
Mr. Shwayder has been involved in the commercial real estate industry since 1987, having completed approximately 1,500 transactions totaling in excess of $2 billion. He has been recognized as a top producer by the Denver Metro Commercial Association of Realtors. Mr. Shwayder is also a Principal of Wheelhouse Commercial Management, a commercial property management firm, and SC Capital, a privately-funded acquirer of non-performing residential mortgages throughout the US. He also serves as Lead Director and Chairman of the Loan Committee for Fortis Private Bank and Fortis Private Wealth Management.
“The notion of enhancing our services to include a comprehensive, institutional debt and equity platform will enable us to better serve our clients, who have a wide range of needs – not merely acquisitions and dispositions,” said Mr. Shwayder, Managing Director, Greystone Unique Apartment Group. “Greystone’s philosophy aligns with Unique Apartment Group’s mission to be a universal advisor who is laser-focused on serving our clients’ commercial real estate needs.”
“Unique Apartment Group is a perfect complement to the increasing extension of Greystone’s advisory business, and their reputation in the multifamily advisory sector is sure to be an asset to Greystone,” said Jim McDevitt, President, Greystone Real Estate Advisors. “By combining UAG’s expertise with Greystone’s affordable and seniors housing advisory and lending teams, there is no limit to the level of service we can provide.”
