Jaspaul Kapoor is vice president of CBRE Capital Markets, the world’s leading commercial real estate services firm, which offers real estate investment sales, leasing, financing, advisory and investment banking services. In his current role, Jaspaul covers the gamut of financing assignments, with a focus on apartments and government agency lending programs. Over the course of his career, he has participated in over $5 billion of real estate transactions.
Jaspaul joined the Debt & Structured Finance group at CBRE in 2017 and brought with him valuable experience and specialized expertise gained during his previous tenures at ARA Newmark, CBRE and Arch Bay Capital, where he held roles in the areas of capital markets, investment sales and distressed investments. Focused primarily on institutional business earlier in his career, Jaspaul now directs his efforts and his particular ingenuity on the underserved niche of workforce housing—large targets for government agency business—and his clients are benefiting tremendously.
“Given where the market is, there’s tremendous opportunity in workforce housing specifically and the government agency programs continue to resonate with investors,” Jaspaul explains. “But I also cover small business lending, providing capital to underserved business owners for owner-occupied commercial real estate, for example.”
While Jaspaul is based in CBRE’s Los Angeles office, his particular skill with government agencies enables him to pursue business all over the country. This allows him to help clients, especially out-of-state borrowers, who may have more limited financing options—and this is one area in which Jaspaul’s unique expertise shines brightest. “These government agency programs allow investors the ability to borrow in less liquid markets, including smaller metros in Middle America” he explains. “Deep-pocketed coastal investors gain access to higher leverage, non-recourse agency loans to finance these deals, which typically sport higher cash flow and a lower price point.” With Jaspaul’s record of executing some of the most challenging transactions, the substantial number of deals flowing within his niche comes as no surprise.
