AFFORDABLE HOUSING MISSION
We are Capital on a Mission. We support affordable housing across the country through our partnership with Enterprise Community Partners, Inc. which creates and advocates for quality affordable housing in thriving communities. Since our partnership with Enterprise was conceived in 2012, every BWE loan closed has contributed over $100 million toward our mission to create affordable communities.
FULL-SERVICE FINANCING PARTNER
BWE offers competitive rates and terms, streamlined underwriting, and a broad range of direct lending resources for all property types. Our full-service experience ensures our clients receive the highest quality and most efficient commercial mortgage banking offered in the industry.
That attention and level of commitment to our clients doesn’t stop when loans close. With our dedicated team of asset managers and operations professionals, we service most of the loans we originate. From inception throughout the life of the loan, our team of experts handle financing needs so clients can focus on their business.
