The mortgage leader

Description
SAN DIEGO (February 10, 2019) — The Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) released its year-end ranking of commercial and multifamily mortgage servicers’ volumes (as of December 31, 2018) here today at the 2019 Commercial Real Estate Finance/Multifamily Housing Convention & Expo.

At the top of the list of firms is Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., with $675.3 billion in master and primary servicing in 2018, followed by PNC Real Estate/Midland Loan Services ($612.4 billion), KeyBank National Association ($256.6 billion), Berkadia Commercial Mortgage, LLC ($235.9 billion), and CBRE Loan Services ($189.4 billion).

Among servicers with retained or purchased servicing of U.S. mortgaged, income-producing properties, Wells Fargo, PNC/Midland and KeyBank are the largest primary and master servicers for CMBS, CDO or other ABS loans; Cohen Financial, a Division of SunTrust Bank, is the largest for credit company, pension funds, REITs and investment fund loans; Wells Fargo, Walker & Dunlop, and Berkadia are the largest for Fannie Mae loans; Wells Fargo and KeyBank are the largest for Freddie Mac loans; Red Mortgage Capital, LLC, Walker & Dunlop and Berkadia are the largest for FHA & Ginnie Mae loans; HFF, LP, NorthMarq, and CBRE for life insurance company loans; and Wells Fargo for loans held in warehouse. PNC and Wells Fargo are the largest named special servicers.

Wells Fargo, MetLife and PGIM Real Estate Finance are the top servicers for loans held in own portfolio, U.S. mortgaged, income-producing properties.

PNC and Berkadia are the top fee-for-service primary and master servicers of U.S. mortgaged, income producing properties; Capital One Financial Corp and Wells Fargo rank as the top master and primary servicers of other types of commercial real estate related assets located in the U.S.; and Situs and CBRE are the top primary and master servicers of non-US CRE-related assets.

A primary servicer is generally responsible for collecting loan payments from borrowers, performing property inspections and other property-related activities. A master servicer is typically responsible for collecting cash and data from primary servicers and then providing that cash and data, through trustees, to investors. Unless otherwise noted, MBA tabulations that combine different roles do not double-count loans for which a single servicer performs multiple roles. The tabulations can and do double-count across servicers’ loans for which multiple servicers each fulfill a role.

  • Total Primary and Master Servicing
  • U.S. Mortgaged, Income-Producing Properties, Loans Held in Own Portfolio, Total
