Maggie focuses her practice on real estate finance transactions. She primarily advises lenders regarding the financing of commercial and multifamily housing projects and the sale of loans to secondary market investors such as the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corp.

Moss & Barnett has become one of the leading law firms nationwide in representing Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae lenders. The firm has closed thousands of these loans in every product line, including:

  • Portfolio and capital markets executions
  • Credit facilities and other structured transactions
  • Tax-exempt bond and other targeted affordable housing programs
  • Seniors housing  
  • Manufactured housing
  • Small-balance loans

These transactions span the spectrum of deal structures, including joint ventures, tenancies-in-common, ground leases, master leases, condominiums, phased developments, preferred equity, and investment funds. Maggie maintains a database of analysis and documentation and has developed efficiencies to close a large volume of transactions.  

With many loans now being pooled and securitized, Maggie focuses on structuring single-purpose entities and examining the many legal issues necessary for compliance with Standard & Poor’s U.S. Commercial Mortgage-Backed Securities (CMBS) Legal and Structured Finance Criteria.
