Stephen H. Gordon, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Opus Bank, stated, “As residential foreclosures are increasing, resulting in our country shifting toward becoming more of a rental nation, multifamily and other affordable housing options are in heavy demand. Here in the Western region, the need could not be greater.”

Dan Borland, President of Opus Bank’s Income Property Banking division, stated, “I am pleased with the early success that our Washington income property banking group achieved at the end of 2011 and beginning of 2012, since Opus Bank’s June 2011 acquisition of Cascade Bank. I expect the recent success to continue throughout the remainder of 2012, as the market activity begins to reflect real estate investors’ optimism in the Seattle/Puget Sound metropolitan area.” Borland added, “Opus Bank has a unique understanding of the needs of income property real estate investors, and particularly multifamily real estate investors. We provide attractive loan products, with a quick and efficient process through funding, as well as Opus Bank specializes in providing treasury and cash management payment products and services such as remote deposit capture and ACH services that streamline the collection of rental and lease payments, as well as the back office accounting for our clients.”
