The team is based in Seattle, and will be originating GSE and FHA/HUD MAP and LEAN loans for multifamily, seniors housing, and healthcare properties on a nationwide basis.

The team comes to M&T Realty Capital Corporation from Jones Lang LaSalle (JLL), where each held a similar role in JLL’s Capital Markets division.

Schneider adds, “M&T Bank is well known in the Pacific Northwest region for its construction lending program. HUD’s non-recourse loan programs offer longer loan terms, higher leverage, and lower interest rates than other permanent financing programs, and will be a great fit for customers with long-term asset strategies. Our team looks forward to being able to provide these execution options to M&T’s customers.”
