We anticipate record growth from the company while maintaining close and long-lasting relationships with our clients. With that in mind, we have been able to maintain a remarkable and steady trajectory that capitalizes on the opportunities in our state and region.

Luna Capital, a leading brokerage and real estate firm in New Mexico, announces today that it is poised to triple its revenue in 2018 after doubling it in 2017. Luna has also hired Davies Crasta as Senior Vice President, Development Officer, who moved to Santa Fe from Dallas, TX. This role includes a focus on improving existing processes and establishing new ones for efficiency and quality of work.

The company, founded by Kristopher Axtell in 2013, doubled its revenue in 2017 and is poised to triple it this year due to a focus on markets that traditional lenders have difficulty with, such as hospitality and brewing companies; a medical and dental practice expertise; bringing out-of-market lenders to New Mexico; brokering more real estate transactions for clients and expanding the Luna footprint to West Texas, Colorado and Arizona.

“We anticipate record growth from the company while maintaining close and long-lasting relationships with our clients,” said Axtell. “It’s incredibly important to me to guide the company based on building our relationships and expertise in specific industries rather than growth for the sake of growth. With that in mind, we have been able to maintain a remarkable and steady trajectory that capitalizes on the opportunities in our state and region.”

Crasta moved in March from Dallas, TX, where he built a career in Financial Services meeting the needs of businesses of various sizes, ranging from emerging middle market companies to Fortune 100 clients. His experience spans Leveraged Finance, Investment Grade Debt, Distressed Debt Investment, M&A, Asset Based Lending, and Cash Flow Lending. His transaction volume topped $150 billion.

“Luna is a unique enterprise focused on people, relationships and solutions. I am looking forward to exercising my specific capabilities alongside Kris and Brandon on strategic matters for Luna,” said Crasta.
