Gregg Winter, Founder and President of Winter & Company

Gregg Winter, President

Gregg Winter formed Winter & Company Commercial Real Estate Finance in 1989 with a focus on arranging cooperative underlying mortgages and unsecured lines of credit for co-op corporations throughout the New York metropolitan area. The firm has closed hundreds of these loans and today remains at the cutting edge negotiating favorable terms including forward commitments and more lenient prepayment penalties for its clients. Winter & Company also focuses on arranging financing for new, ground-up development projects, primarily luxury condominium developments in New York City. In many cases Winter & Company arranges joint ventures for boutique condominium developments advising clients and finding appropriate partners that can add value to compliment and complete a development team.

In its capacity as commercial mortgage advisor, Winter & Company has arranged  commercial mortgages with conventional lending institutions such as banks, agencies, conduits, pension funds and insurance companies. In 2003, Mr. Winter founded W Financial Fund, LP ( which provides quick-close bridge loans and has successfully navigated the rough waters of the recent economic downturn. The Fund provides quarterly distributions of interest to more than four hundred accredited investors with a diversified portfolio of private mortgage investments. This Winter & Company affiliate is a direct private lender capable of closing many of the deals that cannot be placed with conventional lenders.

Gregg has often been quoted in publications such as Barron’s, The Wall Street Journal, Financial Times, The New York Times, Crain's New York Business, Real Estate Weekly, The Real Deal, Real Estate Finance & Investment, Globe Street, Alternative Investment News,  Commercial Mortgage Insight, Northeast Real Estate Business, Newsday and Money Magazine. He is a frequent panelist at industry events such as the Greenpearl’s Multifamily Investment Summit, and at last November’s Council of New York Cooperatives Annual Housing Conference Gregg was the mortgage broker selected for the panel “Refinancing the Co-op’s Underlying Mortgage”. He has been consulted for articles that have appeared in Habitat Magazine, and he is also a contributing author of the book Co-op & Condo Ownership. Mr. Winter has more than 25 years of real estate experience and is recognized as a leading commercial mortgage advisor and lender in the New York metropolitan area. He is familiar with all facets of real estate financing, investment and management.

Prior to forming Winter & Company, Mr. Winter was a principal of W & W Associates, Inc., a family-owned mortgage investment business established in 1963 by his father Jack Winter. He is a Magna Cum Laude graduate of Long Island University, serves on the Finance Committee of the Real Estate Board of New York, is a member of the Real Estate Lenders Association and is a New York State Licensed Real Estate Broker.
