The Sembler Company has worked with Michael Strober over the last 30 years and has found him to be an excellent source for debt solutions in both good markets and bad.  He takes customer service very seriously and has built strong relationships within the lending community that allow him to offer a variety of options for complex financing needs.  Quite simply, when we have a need, he has delivered competitive options to meet that need in a timely, professional manner and we will continue to look to him to do so.

H&R REIT is Canada’s second largest REIT focusing primarily on single tenant, retail, industrial and multifamily properties with 75% of the assets located in Canada and with the balance of the properties located throughout the United States.  We were introduced to Michael Strober when we first entered the U.S. market approximately fifteen years ago.  He has performed extremely well during both good and challenging times.  We have found his team to be thorough with a great understanding of the financial debt markets, and in particular during this current difficult financial period in the debt market, we still find Michael to be an invaluable resource.

In a depressed economic environment when financing is difficult to secure, there is one individual who has his finger on the pulse of the mortgage market…he is Michael Strober.  Anyone can be a hero in good times.  It is the facilitator, however, who has nurtured the key lending sources over the years, whose loans will go to the top of the stack when money becomes tight and only a select number of transactions will be approved.  That person is Michael Strober.  And when a complication arises out of nowhere just before the closing, or when an existing loan needs the lenders understanding, one “go to” guy  has consistently found a way to “get the deal done”…Michael Strober.  Throw in a wonderful sense of humor, an abundance of energy and a temperament that allows him to keep his head when all around him are losing theirs and you have a unique mortgage banker who has always delivered the goods be it times of prosperity or economic distress.
