BOSTON-L.J. Melody & Company, a national real estate investment banking firm and a division of CB Richard Ellis, is making a major change of management in its New England operation. Michael Lindgren, director in Boston, and Tim Harwood, director in Connecticut, will co-manage the region which currently consists of two offices, Boston and Fairfield, CT. Both Lindgren and Harwood will continue in this capacity while overseeing office operations.

L.J. Melody & Company first made its entrance into New England with the purchase of Boston Mortgage Capital Corp. in 2000. The company says that Lindgren and Harwood will be looking to grow L.J. Melody’s business in New England with their main focus being to add new mortgage banking talent in order to enhance the company’s presence and increase its market penetration.

“We’re giving Michael and Tim our full support in their efforts to expand within the New England region. Having a stronger foothold in New England will certainly enhance our national network of loan originators,” says Brian Stoffers, executive managing director and COO at L.J. Melody & Company’s Houston headquarters.

Lindgren has been in the commercial real estate industry for over 18 years and has been involved in $3 billion of commercial real estate investments. Harwood has over 25 years of experience in commercial real estate lending and mortgage banking.

During the past two years, L.J. Melody has arranged $16 billion in commercial real estate transactions nationwide. The firm operates offices in 30 major metropolitan markets and maintains a loan servicing and asset management portfolio totaling over $59 billion.
