Commercial Real Estate Financing

About Cerco

Who Are We?

Cerco Funding LLC ("Cerco") is a New York-based real estate private equity firm. In this capacity, Cerco acts as a direct portfolio lender originating commercial bridge loans nationwide. Through this lending platform, Cerco has extended capital for acquisitions, refinancings, repositionings, and a host of special situations.

Cerco's fully integrated program gives it an ability to build the box around the deal rather than attempting to squeeze a given transaction within a rigid set of parameters. Because Cerco neither syndicates its deals nor outsources the servicing thereof, it provides its clients and their brokers with an unparalleled level of certainty of execution. As such, Cerco strives to build long-term relationships within the real estate community and stand as reliable partner to repeat clients.
