Justin Short has joined New York-based Hunt Mortgage Group as managing director. Short will expand Hunt’s proprietary platform for originating commercial mortgages, not including agency financing. He will operate out of Hunt’s office in Dallas.
“We are actively working to build our proprietary lending platform, to complement our robust traditional agency and small balance executions,” said Michael Becktel, managing director and Short’s new boss at Hunt.
Prior to joining Hunt Mortgage Group, Short was head of trading for the specialty real estate finance firm and investment manager Allegiant Real Estate Capital, which spun off from FirstKey lending, a Cerberus portfolio company. Before that, he was head of trading and capital markets at Blackstone’s single family rental platform, B2R Finance.
