I can't thank you enough for your assistance on our assumption. Quite frankly, I don't think we could have made it without your help. Your firm adds a tremendous value when dealing with the CMBS monster.
Our $1.2Billion transaction would not have closed without 1st Service Solutions
Whenever you have a CMBS deal, hire 1st Service Solutions and get out of the way.
You were tremendous Stephanie. Thank you. We are working on the one in Arlington Heights and will strongly recommend hiring you.

You guys were terrific. Very helpful in a work out on a hotel.
If you ever have to deal with a CMBS servicer, you cannot do it without 1st Service Solutions’ help
When I get an assumption package from 1st Service Solutions, I know it will be complete and I can send it directly to underwriting
You made a painful process efficient and manageable – leading to a successful conclusion of an important transaction for us
Ann Hambly knows the CMBS rules, structure and players as well as anyone I know. She has been a part of setting industry guidelines from the very beginning of CMBS. That knowledge is the key to being a successful borrower advocate.
Steve Banegas is one of the most genuine leaders I know. His love for his Customers, both internal and external is most inspiring. His willingness to step into the unknown to make life a better place is one of the many traits Steve possesses.
A company is only as good as the quality of the people who serve you, and how well they work together. Ann Hambly has assembled leading players from the Special Servicers and created something that is rare – an authentic team. People who work with Ann at 1st Service Solutions appreciate the quality and skill of the professional that they are privileged to work and interact with. Ann Hambly built her company on an unshakable commitment to serving the critical needs of the Owner.
CMBS loans are governed by a set of IRS rules that the borrower does not have access to and likely has never heard of before.
A huge thank you to 1st Service for your efforts and specifically, to Stephanie for helping to keep this on track and setting us up to close a time sensitive deal both “smoothly” and on time! Sometimes a deal seems to go much smoother than it really has because of the “behind the scenes” work being done by Stephanie and the rest of your team. Please know that those efforts are appreciated, recognized and acknowledged. I am confident this deal would not have gone nearly as smoothly and most likely would not have closed on time without the expertise and relationships of 1st Service behind it. We will certainly seek the benefit of your services again in the future should we find ourselves dealing with CMBS or similar type lender.

“It was awesome working with you guys…”
“I couldn’t imagine this process going as well as it did…”
Ann and 1st Service Solutions have invested very heavily in webinars which have educated me about the landscape of CMBS loans and the variety of options out there. I am very grateful for that. That investment, their credentials and their truly human approach have earned my trust. When it’s time for the experts, I turn to 1st Service Solutions.
“We will utilize your team for your services again…”
