1st Service Solutions, Helping CMBS Borrowers Survive an Ever-Changing Market

GRAPEVINE, TX--(Marketwire - September 16, 2008) - 1st Service Solutions held its third CMBS Borrower Forum in San Diego on September 10th. The forum provided a unique opportunity for conduit borrowers and key commercial real estate industry leaders to discuss creative ways to make conduit loans work more optimally for the borrowers in an ever-changing market! The borrower attendees gained insight and understanding of what can and can't be done on securitized loans, what their options are if their property is in trouble or their loan matures and they can't find alternative acceptable financing. Ethan Penner from CBRE Investors was the featured speaker. Ethan shared his views on the securitization industry as a whole, including how the industry morphed to its current state and where the conduit market, and real estate in general, is anticipated to go next. All the materials from this forum can be found at

The next CMBS Borrower Forum is scheduled for January 2009 in Palm Springs, CA (immediately preceding the National Multifamily Housing Council annual meeting).
