Metropolitan Capital Advisors is celebrating its 25th year in business. We have completed over $13 billion in financing transactions exceeding 1,400 assignments since our beginnings in 1992. We have remained committed to our core mission of providing focused advisory/intermediary/representation services to developers, investors and sponsors in the commercial real estate capital markets. The quality of our service and our loyalty to clients differentiates us from other advisory firms.
Over the years, we have grown our firm organically; building from the ground up by recruiting, investing and mentoring young talent. It has taken time to groom and transition our Senior Directors into top producers in the commercial real estate finance industry. This unique culture and discipline sets us apart – we have resisted the temptation to merge or sell our company to a national platform to insure we retain this individualized approach to growing our firm. Validation of our success is evident as Metropolitan Capital Advisors has been consistently ranked as a Top #20 U.S. Financial Intermediaries by National Real Estate Investor Magazine.
The Metropolitan Capital Advisors’ Leadership Team includes Founding Principal Scott Lynn and Co-Principals Todd McNeill and Sunny Sajnani. Headquartered at our new offices on Turtle Creek Boulevard in Dallas, the firm expanded in 2013 by opening an office in Denver in partnership with Charley Babb. We are a member of the Real Estate Capital Alliance (RECA), a national association of eighteen like-minded real estate finance companies with $4 billion of annual transaction volume. Our expansion and association with RECA has given our firm the capability to service our clients around the country for any type of project or capital requirement. Today, over 50% of our business is closed on transactions outside Texas.
Success and longevity were not easily accomplished; our firm is extremely grateful to our clients who have entrusted us with their transactions, and to the many Capital Providers who have helped our clients achieve their goals. Finally, we are most thankful to all the other commercial real estate professionals, brokers, attorneys, title agents, appraisers, contractors and collaborators and friends who have worked with us over the past twenty-five years. Thank you all for being a part of our success!
