IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 21, 2015) - Talonvest Capital, Inc. successfully negotiated and closed a $10.5 million floating rate loan secured by the Charlotte Commerce Center, a 167,500 square foot, multi-building, multi-tenant property located in Charlotte, NC on behalf of Irvine, CA based CIP Real Estate and their joint venture partner, Baltimore-based Alex.

The Talonvest team that structured the loan and managed negotiations with a broad base of potential lenders included Tom Sherlock, Eric Snyder, Kim Leslie, Carole Stanley, and Laura Bogart. "CIP and Talonvest have worked together successfully on multiple assignments over the past five years" noted Sherlock. "The quality of the asset coupled with the extraordinary experience and reputation of CIP contributed to the spirited competition we orchestrated among a variety of potential lenders.
