Red Oak Financial, a Michigan-based commercial real estate finance company, added David Christensen to the firm’s growing team.
Christensen, who brings more than 35 years of commercial mortgage experience encompassing a range of refinance, construction, acquisition, mezzanine debt and joint venture equity activity, will serve as Regional Manager, Northwest.
An example of his deal-making capability in challenging times was the recent closing of a $21.7-million, two-year bridge loan that was executed in three weeks.
Prior to joining Red Oak, Christensen most recently served as the Northwest Regional Director for Money360, where he expanded mortgage broker relationships and originated loans across the U.S. for the company. Prior to that, Christensen served at Berkadia as Vice President, Mortgage Banking for the firm in its San Francisco office.
