San Diego, CA (PRWEB) July 14, 2009
As part of its ongoing efforts to better serve a growing roster of clients on the East Coast, the national problem resolution and real estate services firm Douglas Wilson Companies (http://www.douglaswilson.com/dwc/) today announced the opening of its Miami office and appointment of Regional Managing Director Terri Echarte.
The San Diego-based company specializing in distressed real estate and court-appointed receiverships now has six offices around the U.S., including San Francisco, Atlanta, Orlando, Las Vegas and Miami.
According to CEO Douglas P. Wilson, the new Miami office enhances the company's ability to handle the swelling tide of residential and commercial real estate foreclosures in Florida and the southeastern region, as well as a gateway to Caribbean markets.
Heading up the just opened South Florida office is seasoned commercial real estate lending professional Terri Echarte, who Wilson said brings to the company an extensive banking and real estate background that will greatly benefit property owners and lenders looking to maximize asset value and execute reasonable exit strategies.
"We are extremely excited that Terri has joined our team," said Wilson. "She brings exceptional knowledge and expertise to the team and we expect her to play a significant role in the continuing expansion of our comprehensive services to investors and institutional clients throughout North America and the Caribbean."
Prior to joining Douglas Wilson Companies, Echarte was a managing director of the Miami office of Holliday Fenoglio Fowler, where she primarily arranged debt, mezzanine financing, and equity for clients throughout the U.S.
In addition, she previously served as senior vice president with Bank of America's origination team of Miami-Dade County, worked in acquisitions, dispositions and client relations with IBEX Institutional Advisors and with United Trust Fund.
"I'm thrilled to be joining the elite team at Douglas Wilson Companies especially in these historic times," said Echarte. "There are many challenges ahead but also enormous opportunities for a company like DWC to leverage its national infrastructure and unmatched 20-year track record within the distressed real estate realm."
A licensed real estate and mortgage broker, she's a member of various professional organizations including Commercial Real Estate Women and the International Council of Shopping Centers, and active in Urban Land Institute, Mortgage Bankers Association and the National Association of Industrial Office Properties.
