Peachtree Group Ranked among the Largest Commercial Real Estate Investor-Driven Lenders in U.S.

Peachtree Group ranked as the seventh largest U.S. commercial real estate investor-driven lender by the Mortgage Bankers Association ("MBA") 2023 loan origination rankings. In 2023, Peachtree deployed over $1.0 billion in commercial real estate credit investments. In addition, Peachtree ranked as a top-10 lender in the hotel sector for a third consecutive year.

ATLANTA (April 2, 2024) – Peachtree Group ("Peachtree") ranked as the seventh largest U.S. commercial real estate investor-driven lender by the Mortgage Bankers Association ("MBA") 2023 loan origination rankings. In 2023, Peachtree deployed over $1.0 billion in commercial real estate credit investments.

Peachtree was also ranked as the tenth largest U.S. commercial real estate hotel lender, its third consecutive year in the top ten. In addition, the firm was among the leading lenders in the retail, multifamily, industrial and 'other' sectors.  

"We have experienced a wave of activity since the fourth quarter of 2023, driven by the expectation of persistent high-interest rates and a constrained lending environment from banks," said Greg Friedman, Peachtree's CEO and managing principal. "With traditional lenders stepping back, we have seen a pronounced shift in the capital markets at a time when there is a steep increase in debt maturities within the industry, potentially nearing $1 trillion in this year alone."

Amid the debt market dislocation, Peachtree has already deployed nearly $1.0 billion in credit transactions this year.

"The tidal wave of maturities and trillions of dollars more through 2028 favors private credit lenders like Peachtree to capitalize on these opportunities and close the funding gap left by traditional capital channels," Friedman said.

As a direct commercial real estate lender, Peachtree offers permanent loans, bridge loans, mezzanine loans commercial property-assessed clean energy (CPACE) financing and preferred equity investments across all commercial real estate sectors.

Stakeholders in the commercial real estate arena are navigating through this era marked by rising capital costs and limited liquidity. These conditions are particularly challenging when securing necessary capital for acquisitions, recapitalization and development initiatives.

"Years of dedicated effort in building our capital foundation have equipped us to support real estate owners in executing their business strategies, a commitment that remains firm even during uncertain times," Friedman concluded.

Debt Market Dislocation Creates $1 Billion Opportunity for Peachtree Group

Peachtree Group is thriving amid debt market dislocation, and anticipates deploying $1.0 billion in real estate credit investments within six months. ‍The credit investments primarily encompass originations for hotels, multifamily, industrial and student housing. In February, Peachtree closed one of the largest individual credit transactions in the firm's history with a $102.9 million three-year loan to recapitalize a 350‐room Marriott branded hotel in Sunnyvale, Calif.

ATLANTA (March 18, 2024) – Peachtree Group (“Peachtree”), a diversified commercial real estate investment firm, announced it has closed approximately $660 million in credit investments since Dec. 1, 2023, with an additional $350 million anticipated closing over the next 30 to 45 days.

The credit investments primarily encompass originations for hotels, multifamily, industrial and student housing.


In February, Peachtree closed one of the largest individual credit transactions in the firm's history with a $102.9 million three-year loan to recapitalize a 350‐room Marriott dual-brand AC Hotel Sunnyvale Moffett Park and TETRA Hotel, Autograph Collection in Sunnyvale, Calif.

"We are witnessing heightened activity in response to the anticipation of sustained elevated interest rates and continued reductions in bank exposure. The pressing need to refinance maturing debt, estimated at $2.8 trillion in U.S. commercial real estate debt by the end of 2028, is a growing concern. Commercial real estate stakeholders are grappling with the challenges of increased capital costs and constrained liquidity, particularly in securing capital for acquisitions, recapitalizations and development initiatives,” said Greg Friedman, Peachtree Group’s managing principal and CEO.

Peachtree Group's credit division, formerly Stonehill, ranked as the 8th largest U.S. commercial real estate hotel lender by the Mortgage Bankers Association in its last loan origination rankings.

As a direct commercial real estate lender, it offers permanent loans, bridge loans, mezzanine loans, commercial property-asset clean energy (CPACE) financing and preferred equity investments across all commercial real estate sectors, with its origins in the hospitality industry.

Other notable credit transactions closed over the past 90 days:

  • $40.8 million first mortgage loan for the construction of a dual-branded Residence Inn and Home2 Suites in Montgomery, Ala.
  • $46.0 million in Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy (“CPACE”) financing for the Thompson Hotel in Palm Springs, Calif.  
  • $36.2 million first mortgage loan for Courtyard by Marriott in Chevy Chase, Md.
  • $40.6 million first mortgage loan for Home2 Suites in Charlotte, N.C.
  • $34.5 million first mortgage loan for a multifamily complex in Gainesville, Fla.
  • $17.5 million first mortgage loan for student housing in Athens, Ga.
