FORT LEE, N.J. - Cross River Bank (“Cross River”), a New Jersey State chartered FDIC-insured bank known for its diversified commercial real estate (“CRE”) lending program and deep market experience, today announced the closing of the second quarter, totaling over $66 million in loans year-to-date. Additionally, the team saw 100 percent growth in the number of loans originated in Q1 and Q2 2023, compared to the same quarters in 2022. These results were achieved through leveraging Cross River’s Lender Finance platform (private lender warehouse facilities), which offers customized solutions for CRE lenders nationally.
