Gregg Winter, Founder and President of Winter & Company
Gregg Winter, President
Gregg Winter formed Winter & Company Commercial Real Estate Finance in 1989 with a focus on arranging cooperative underlying mortgages and unsecured lines of credit for co-op corporations throughout the New York metropolitan area. The firm has closed hundreds of these loans and today remains at the cutting edge negotiating favorable terms including forward commitments and more lenient prepayment penalties for its clients. Winter & Company also focuses on arranging financing for new, ground-up development projects, primarily luxury condominium developments in New York City. In many cases Winter & Company arranges joint ventures for boutique condominium developments advising clients and finding appropriate partners that can add value to compliment and complete a development team.
In its capacity as commercial mortgage advisor, Winter & Company has arranged commercial mortgages with conventional lending institutions such as banks, agencies, conduits, pension funds and insurance companies. In 2003, Mr. Winter founded W Financial Fund, LP ( which provides quick-close bridge loans and has successfully navigated the rough waters of the recent economic downturn. The Fund provides quarterly distributions of interest to more than four hundred accredited investors with a diversified portfolio of private mortgage investments. This Winter & Company affiliate is a direct private lender capable of closing many of the deals that cannot be placed with conventional lenders.
Gregg has often been quoted in publications such as Barron's, The Wall Street Journal, Financial Times, The New York Times, Crain's New York Business, Real Estate Weekly, The Real Deal, Real Estate Finance & Investment, Globe Street, Alternative Investment News, Commercial Mortgage Insight, Northeast Real Estate Business, Newsday and Money Magazine. He is a frequent panelist at industry events such as the Greenpearl's Multifamily Investment Summit, and at last November's Council of New York Cooperatives Annual Housing Conference Gregg was the mortgage broker selected for the panel "Refinancing the Co-op's Underlying Mortgage". He has been consulted for articles that have appeared in Habitat Magazine, and he is also a contributing author of the book Co-op & Condo Ownership. Mr. Winter has more than 25 years of real estate experience and is recognized as a leading commercial mortgage advisor and lender in the New York metropolitan area. He is familiar with all facets of real estate financing, investment and management.
Prior to forming Winter & Company, Mr. Winter was a principal of W & W Associates, Inc., a family-owned mortgage investment business established in 1963 by his father Jack Winter.

Private Mortgage Fund Attracts Pension Money, 27 Nov 2006 [cached]
Gregg Winter, president of W Financial, a direct private bridge and mezzanine lender based in Manhattan, tells that in response to interest he is planning to launch a second fund geared toward the institutional community. The current fund, which is tailored for high-net-worth individuals, has a longer lock-up period than institutional investors would tolerate, he says. Winter's current fund has made 30 loans since it was launched in July 2003 and investors have received an 11% annualized return net of all expenses.
Winter says the interest by institutions in private commercial mortgage funds is rising right along with owners' and developers' willingness to utilize high-yield debt for a short time to help execute their business plan. "A building on Madison Avenue may start out its life cycle with a new buyer using a high-yield mortgage then transitioning to a bank construction loan and then, after it's fully leased, to a CMBS permanent mortgage," says Winter.
Winter started funding private commercial mortgages with his own money many years ago as an offshoot of Winter & Co. Commercial Real Estate Finance, his commercial mortgage brokerage firm. The private lending business eventually grew to the point where he was doing $5-million deals and syndicating them with five or 10 other investors. The fund, which has 100 investors, was launched as a more efficient vehicle to continue making the same high-yield bridge loans.
"Just as my experience has brought me to this point, now [pension funds] are catching onto the fact that there are folks out there who can safely earn high yields with fairly low risk of defaults, and that if and when a default does occur, if one has very good security and has structured the loan correctly, it may well be possible to end up with a significant profit rather than a loss because of the default interest rate and other penalties such as exit fees that would be imposed on a borrower.
Furthermore, Winter says institutional investors recognize that "asset-based lending is not correlated to the returns of the stock market, which only adds to its appeal as way to achieve diversification in an overall portfolio."

Gregg Winter W Financial > About Us > Principals - Gregg Winter
Gregg Winter, Founder and Principal of W Financial Gregg Winter co-founded W Financial, and is Managing Partner. Mr. Winter is also the Owner and Chief Executive Officer of Winter & Company, a New York commercial mortgage advisory firm founded in 1989. He has more than 23 years of real estate experience and is recognized as a leading lender and commercial mortgage broker in the New York metropolitan area.
W Financial is a direct private lender providing short-term bridge loans secured by first mortgage loans on commercial real estate (primarily multifamily and mixed-use properties).
After 14 years of syndicating individual mortgage loans, the 2003 launch of W Financial represented a significant evolution and a far more efficient vehicle for Mr. Winter to source, originate and service bridge loans, providing investors with much greater diversification and continuity of cash flow than the previous model of syndicating one loan at a time. By then, many of the initial investors in the fund already had more than a decade of prior experience with Mr. Winter's syndication of individual private mortgage loans. The fund structure would allow all the investors to benefit from maximum diversification by participating in a growing, carefully managed loan portfolio.
Winter & Company arranges commercial mortgages for a wide variety of property types including multifamily, mixed-use and condominium apartment buildings, office buildings, shopping centers and retail, hotel, industrial and net-leased properties. Winter & Company and the Partnership are complementary in their ability to provide a complete solution for their clients' capital needs resulting in robust deal flow.
Prior to forming Winter & Company, Mr. Winter was a principal of W&W Associates, Inc., a family-owned mortgage investment business established in 1963 by his father, Jack Winter.
