"We are very proud to announce our first K-Deal backed entirely by Seniors Housing loans," said Mitchell Resnick, vice president of Freddie Mac Multifamily Loan Pricing and Securitization.

The Freddie Mac seniors program has historically maintained strong credit metrics and performance throughout various commercial real estate cycles all while serving a very important sector of the multifamily market."
