HFF's Latest Hire

Meet HFF's new director Jordan Angel, who's wrapping up his first week doing debt and equity placement transactions in the West. He's coming off a near 10-year stint at Barry Slatt Mortgage Co, where he secured more than $1B in debt and equity for all types of properties. He recently closed a $13.5M CMBS loan for a BJ’s Wholesale Warehouse in Philly with RAIT Financial Trust. They were picked because the originators' parents shop at that store and Jordan was convinced they would get it done--or the guy would have to explain to his parents why the store was moving. (Awkward.)

Jordan worked with the tenant, owners, lender, and a gaggle of attorneys to structure a new reverse build-to-suit lease on a building they were already occupying before their lease term ended as the borrower’s current loan was coming due. So why the move to HFF? He was craving a larger platform, and HFF's got some "next-level stuff" going on, allowing him to graduate from smaller private investor deals to bigger structured transactions. In his free time, he's the founder and prez of the San Francisco nonprofit Yuppie Friday, a group of young urban professionals who fundraise and volunteer for local nonprofits. (He must be tall because that polar bear looks life-size.)
