Credit Underwriting

Walter Duke + Partners was founded on the principle of providing sound third party commercial loan underwriting and risk assessment as a way to improve the quality of commercial mortgage lending.

Our commercial real estate bank lender clients compete in an increasingly aggressive business environment under the growing scrutiny of the Office of the Comptroller of Currency (OCC). The OCC has determined that bank lender client institutions with high concentration in commercial real estate (CRE) levels can retain those high levels with acceptable risk-management practices.

Walter Duke + Partners plays a key role in those acceptable risk management practices by providing high quality third party loan underwriting support. We work closely but independently with internal underwriting mechanisms to provide sound and defensible estimate of market value to help satisfy examiner scrutiny and mutually protect the assets of the shareholders.
