Liberty Commercial Funds $25MM Sale-Lease Back; Achieves Funding Goal

After being named the “Rookie of the Year” by the MonitorDaily in 2018, Liberty Commercial Finance ended 2019 with a bang funding a $25 million sale-leaseback for a private equity owned chemical company to finish at just over $300 million in funded volume in 2019.
The record year for Liberty was an increase of almost 300% from 2018’s funded volume of $107 million, which launched Liberty into the top 25 of Independents in its first full year in business.
“2019 was a phenomenal year for Liberty and I give all credit to the incredible team we’ve assembled over the last couple of years,” said Eric Freeman, president and founder of Liberty. “Before starting the company, I always believed that if we built a culture laser focused on the needs of our lessees, our team members and our funding sources good things were bound to happen. In my opinion, $300 million funded in our second full year in business is total validation of that belief and I couldn’t be more grateful for everything the team has accomplished in such a short period of time.”
