Bethesda, MD-based Walker & Dunlop, Inc. is expanding its Capital Markets group in Phoenix with the addition of two loan originators who bring 45 years of combined experience. Jim Pierson and Keaton Merrell are joining the company’s Arizona team, led by Brandon Harrington and Matt Steffen.
Prior to joining Walker & Dunlop, the pair co-founded and served as principals of Phoenix-based Legacy Capital Advisors. During their careers, they’ve completed $4 billion of debt placement combined. Previously, Pierson and Merrell held positions at Johnson Capital.
Walker & Dunlop’s Howard W. Smith says, “Jim and Keaton have spent years developing relationships with commercial real estate lenders and owners across the country and we’re excited that they will be bringing their passion and track record of industry expertise to Walker & Dunlop.”
