Hunt Mortgage Group, a leader in financing commercial real estate throughout the United States, announced today that it has provided a Freddie Mac conventional loan in the amount of $4.7 million to refinance Arlington West and Pecan Grove, a multifamily property located in Greenville, North Carolina.

Arlington West and Pecan Grove is a 168-unit, garden-style apartment complex built in 1986 and 1995 situated on 8.14-acres of land. The property consists of 15 residential buildings, one leasing office (converted from a rental unit), and open space parking. Six buildings on the southern portion of the property are known as Arlington West, the nine buildings to the north are known as Pecan Grove.
