Essex Financial Group ("Essex") is the preeminent commercial mortgage banking firm in the Rocky Mountain Region, specializing in commercial real estate debt and equity placement.  For over 30 years, Essex has helped its clients navigate the capital markets efficiently to identify the best capital source and structure to meet their needs.

As a loan correspondent for 25+ life insurance companies, including several exclusive relationships, Essex has access to non-recourse, low-interest rate capital that our competitors are unable to provide. While founded as a life insurance company correspondent, Essex has also cultivated long-term relationships with a wide variety of capital sources over the past three decades, including CMBS conduit lenders, debt and equity funds, national and regional banks, government agencies, credit tenant lease financiers, and other private capital sources. The depth of Essex’s lender menu allows us to deliver clients with custom-tailored financing solutions for each investment strategy. Since 2014, Essex has arranged over $4.2 billion in commercial real estate debt across 400 transactions, $2.5 billion of which was with insurance company lenders.

From our office in downtown Denver, Essex also services a 900 loan portfolio for over 50 institutional lenders that totals over $5.0 billion of secured capital.  We provide full cashiering services for 30 life insurance companies and select CMBS conduit lenders, allowing us to provide full, hands-on customer service through the life of a loan.  Our loan servicing includes collecting monthly payments, coordinating review and payment of taxes and insurance, conducting annual inspections and financial reviews, completing lease approvals and loan modifications, and administering leasing capital reserves.

Years of market knowledge, long-tenured lender relationships, real time experience, and innovative thinking allow Essex to deliver clients the optimal capital markets solutions they deserve.
