PEABODY, MA-Terrace Estates, a luxury apartment complex located here on Shore Drive near Route 128, received $22 million in permanent mortgage financing. Legg Mason Real Estate Services/Spectrum Financial arranged the financing on behalf of the complex’s developer, The Terrace Realty Trust.

The financing was provided by Freddie Mac, for which LMRES is an approved seller/servicer. Legg Mason merged with Spectrum in July, providing Spectrum with direct access to Freddie Mac. But according to Stanley Sidel, senior vice president at LMRES/Spectrum, the Freddie Mac program had better rates and terms than anything else in the marketplace.
