Aries Capital, LLC – Commercial Real Estate Loan Experts

Aries Capital, LLC was founded in 1991 by life-long entrepreneur Neil Freeman, and  is a full-service, commercial real estate mortgage and investment banking firm.  We use our boutique, consultative approach to structure and arrange interim and long-term debt, and equity for hotel, self-storage, retail, industrial, office, manufactured housing, multifamily and healthcare properties in the United States and Caribbean.

We believe relationships are more important than any individual transaction. Our goal is to always add value, and we don’t expect our clients to send us every deal. We’ve demonstrated our commitment and abilities throughout the past 27 years and have arranged and/or directly-funded over $6 billion across all asset types.

Urban Development Fund

Our affiliate Urban Development Fund (UDF) is one of the most successful New Markets Tax Credits (NMTCs) Community Development Entities with the United States Treasury.  UDF has received over $800 million in federal and state NMTCs allocations, tranlating to $1 billion in transactions and focuses on the rehabilitation of hotels, mixed-use properties, retail development, theaters and medical facilities in highly-distressed census tracts nationwide.
