Anthony Borghi (Tony) began his real estate career in 1986 as one of the founding principals of Avalon Partners (now Cresa Partners) in Boston, a corporate real estate advisory firm specializing in long term strategic financial planning and transaction negotiations for major multi-national corporations. After 10 years of playing a key role in the growth of the company, Tony opportunistically acquired a 50% interest in Boston Waterfront Realty, a residential real estate brokerage firm, which became the premier and then exclusive affiliate of Sotheby’s International Realty in Boston. After aggressively expanding the operation over the next three years to include five offices, the company was sold to NRT ( presently, Realogy) of New Jersey and ultimately became Coldwell Banker, Boston.
Capitalizing on his background in real estate finance and transaction management, Tony formed Endeavor, Inc. in 1999 specifically to fund short term, special situation commercial real estate loans throughout New England. Over the next 11 years, he created three different real investment funds and privately financed over $100 million in commercial real estate transactions that included such diverse projects as ski and golf resorts, residential sub-divisions and condominiums, medical facilities and multiple land acquisition projects requiring infrastructure development. In 2010, Endeavor and Capital Trust merged after participating together in completing numerous complex, special situation real estate loans for major developers and investors as well as companies requiring working capital credit access during the financial crisis. Today, the newly formed Endeavor Capital, is arguably the largest non-conventional provider of commercial real estate loans in New England.
Christopher Anderson (Chris) has been structuring private real estate commercial loan transactions for over 15 years. Over that period, he has arranged over $500 million dollars in debt and equity financing for residential and commercial real estate as one of the founding partners of JP Mortgage and Capital Trust, LLC in Boston, Massachusetts. Together with his partner, Kurt Stenhouse, they spearheaded the dramatic growth of both companies during this period and ultimately became one of Greater Boston’s leading mortgage correspondents and, with the formation of Capital Trust, LLC, one of Greater Boston’s most active private real estate lenders.
Today, as one of the three Senior Partners of Endeavor Capital, Chris focuses his efforts around structuring special situation loan transactions that require an extraordinary level of intimacy with both the borrower’s business model as well as the dynamics of the collateral securitizing the transaction. His success throughout the years has been predicated upon his commitment to understanding all the economic variables influencing the underwriting of a transaction as well as the complexities that determine the successful execution of a client’s business plan.
Kurt Stenhouse brings an extraordinary background of industry credentials to Endeavor Capital which he has accumulated over the past 20 years. Kurt’s entire professional career has been centered around real estate finance, asset acquisition and portfolio management. While serving as Chief Financial Officer of JP Mortgage and Capital Trust, Kurt orchestrated numerous financial lines with major institutional lenders which leveraged several hundred million dollars of loan transactions for real estate investors and developers throughout Greater Boston.
As importantly, Kurt is credited with establishing a portfolio-based “best practices” approach to underwriting and servicing special situation real estate loans that is widely acknowledged throughout both the conventional and private equity lending industry in Boston. The uncompromising policies and procedures standards that he established with his team at Capital Trust has enabled Endeavor Capital to quickly enjoy a pre-eminent position as Greater Boston’s leading private real estate lender.
