Connect Media Honors Three at Greystone for its 2020 Women in Real Estate Awards

NEW YORK, Nov. 17, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Greystone, a leading national commercial real estate finance company, announced that three people have been selected by Connect Media for its 2020 Women in Real Estate Awards. Greystone’s managing director Ana Ramos in Los Angeles, vice president Lisa M. Fischman in New York, and Greystone Brown Real Estate Advisors’ senior director, Cory Caroline Sams in Atlanta, are among the women who are being honored this year.

Los Angeles-based Ana Ramos is a managing director with Greystone, and the regional head of west coast small loan production for the company. She has more than 20 years of commercial real estate experience, and an extensive underwriting and production background that includes closing more than $2 billion in loan originations. Though she excels in small loan production for Greystone, Ana also recently closed a $35 million deal that involved restructuring the borrowing entity so that it could qualify for Fannie Mae executive. Ana is also a mentor to others professionally and personally — she is a member of CREW Los Angeles, participates in a CRE Women’s monthly dinner, and is a founding sponsor of Greystone’s Women’s Network.

Selected as a winner for Connect CRE’s New York region, Greystone vice president Lisa M. Fischman has been working in commercial real estate for a decade, making the switch to this industry after a successful career in advertising. Based in New York, Lisa focuses on the construction, acquisition and refinancing of multifamily and healthcare real estate assets. She prides herself on finding creative solutions to address all aspects of her clients’ capital stack needs. Lisa’s trademark decisive communication skills and creativity have resulted in long-standing relationships in this industry, which ultimately benefit her clients.

Atlanta-based Cory Caroline Sams is a senior director for Greystone Brown Real Estate Advisors, a joint venture partner focused on multifamily investment sales in the Southeast. When Cory first joined Greystone Brown Real Estate Advisors more than a decade ago, she served as the marketing coordinator and research analyst. Today, as a broker and senior director, her focus is on Class A transactions in the region’s suburban, secondary and tertiary markets, as well as on urban B and C class value-add opportunities. One of only a handful of female multifamily real estate brokers in the Southeast, Cory has assisted in the sale of over 20,000 units, representing well over $1 billion in transactional volume.
