Founded in 2004, MRC has closed on approximately $11 billion of transactions in the multifamily, retail, office, industrial and hotel sectors. The firm manages investments in the United States on behalf of a global investor base. MRC is a fully integrated firm with over 60 employees across all real estate investment, development, and property management disciplines. Among other industry recognitions, MRC has been named to the Commercial Observer’s prestigious “Power 100” list of New York City real estate players and is consistently cited as one of the industry’s top construction lenders.
Madison Realty Capital (MRC) pursues debt investments by originating senior secured loans, mezzanine loans and preferred equity investments for the construction, acquisition, and refinancing of commercial real estate, and by acquiring non-performing loans and preferred equity investments. As a lender, MRC is a valued partner to both institutional sponsors and leading independent developers, known for speed, flexibility, and certainty of execution in complex situations.
As a purchaser of debt, MRC has established its reputation as a reliable counterparty to banks, funds, and other debt sellers seeking to deleverage and solidify their balance sheets.

The firm’s investor base for the debt platform consists of corporate and public pension funds, sovereign wealth funds, university endowments, foundations, insurance companies, fund of funds and high-net-worth individuals.
