COLUMBUS, OH–Working together, RED Capital Partners, LLC, the proprietary debt and equity banking arm of comprehensive capital provider RED Capital Group, LLC, and Sentio Healthcare Properties Inc. (Sentio) collaborated on a $41.9M loan to finance the development of a Class A senior living community in Georgetown, Texas, an affluent suburb approximately 30 miles north of Austin. RED provided a $20M balance sheet loan financing, with the balance being funded by Sentio. The project was developed and is owned by affiliates of Life Care Services, LLC (LCS).
“We are encouraged by the development progress at the property,” said Spencer Smith, SVP of Sentio Investments. “The RED team was able to understand our goals and successfully helped structure a loan financing that worked well for RED, Sentio, and LCS.”
“We are very happy to be working with John Mark Ramsey and his team at Sentio,” said Kathryn Burton Gray, Senior Managing Director for RED. “This is the type of creative financing that allows relationship partners to leverage off RED for the entire capital stack— from bridge loans to permanent lending.“
“RED is very excited to have the privilege of working with Sentio for the first time and assist with its growth, as well as expand our relationship with LCS,” stated James Scribner, Managing Director for RED. “We look forward to working with both firms in the future.”
“We’ve been looking for the right situation to work with RED, and Georgetown provided just that opportunity,” said David Laffey, Senior Vice President/Director of LCS Real Estate. “We greatly appreciate RED’s support of LCS’s proprietary development strategy.”
