December 20, 2022

One of North America’s largest non-bank commercial real estate financiers announces restructuring

MIAMI/PALM BEACH, Fla. December 20, 2022 /BUSINESS WIRE/ – Trez Capital recently announced the restructuring of its Florida office, beginning with ending its joint-venture partnership in the market and closing its Palm Beach office. Capitalizing on the firm’s solid 25-year-history in Canada and across the United States, Trez Capital is opening a new Florida office in the metro Miami area with new regional leadership. Under the continued direction of Trez Capital’s Global Head of Origination, John Hutchinson, the firm will continue building upon its existing market relationships, servicing borrowers, real estate owners and brokers in the Southeastern United States.

Trez Capital is one of North America’s largest non-bank commercial mortgage lenders and equity solution providers. With its new office restructuring of the firm’s Southeastern U.S. origination business led by Hutchinson, Trez Capital will continue to expand its Florida market footprint. In 2010, Trez Capital officially opened its first U.S. office in Dallas with Hutchinson at the helm to focus on the central region and the Southwest. He helped establish the origination team’s relationships cross-country, extending to the Southeast. Hutchinson and his high-performing team have built a solid network of borrowers and investors and are continuing the firm’s expansion in the region.

“Florida and the Southeast remain an incredibly important part of Trez Capital’s business. We have established solid roots in the region and will continue our expansion by investing in our people, reinforcing our ‘boots-on-the-ground’ strategic approach and dedication to our investors,” said Hutchinson. “Our ability to leverage our team’s local market knowledge and varied experience no matter the geographic location has yielded trusted, well-established relationships throughout the country. I am excited about what the future holds for the Florida market and continuing what we do best – delivering results for investors and borrowers.”

Hutchinson and his team of originators have delivered an extensive track record of consistent returns based on providing innovative financing for residential and commercial properties in major high-growth regions across the country. The firm has continued to expand its geographic reach since opening Trez Capital’s first U.S. office a little over a decade ago. Outside of the firm’s Canada offices in Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal, Trez Capital has offices across North America including Dallas, Los Angeles, New York and Seattle while moving its Palm Beach office to Miami.

Today, Trez Capital manages over $5.3 billion in assets under management, has originated over 1,700 loans totaling more than $16.5 billion funded since its inception, with nearly 200 employees.
