Thorpe Commercial Capital is an independent, privately-owned commercial real estate finance and advisory firm. We provide commercial real estate debt and equity finance to owners and investors across all property types nationwide. We differentiate ourselves from other providers of capital by spending the necessary time to fully understand our clients’ needs and risk tolerance, in order to advise the right debt, equity, mezzanine or any combination of financing. The best terms and rates for our clients are not advertised, they are negotiated through having significant long-standing relationships within the capital markets, that we use to close a properly structured loan.
In 1998, Lawrence Thorpe, an industry veteran started First Source Mortgage Corporation as the Senior partner. Mr. Thorpe managed the commercial debt and equity department as well as being an originator. In 2004, Mr. Thorpe was in an additional partnership with another mortgage company where he managed the commercial division (Thorpe Commercial Capital). As the co-founder and senior managing partner, he shares overall responsibility for all management, and was deeply involved with the commercial debt and equity placement for the firm. Mr. Thorpe has extensive experience in commercial debt placement within the capital markets, working with property owners and investors, leading them through large, complex commercial debt finance and restructuring.
His debt placement career stretches over 35 years, cultivating deep industry connections at some of the largest local, regional and national capital sources. What gives him the edge over most commercial mortgage originators is his ability to consult with investors about conventional debt and equity transactions as well as Fannie, Freddie and FHA programs (Agency loans). Many investors are unaware that these Agency programs can be utilized to approve commercial property loans in the range of $1million to $100 million. In 2007, the company began focusing exclusively on commercial finance.
