To some, that red line running down Washington State’s I-5 and I-405’s traffic corridors on a traffic app are enough to heighten blood pressure on a commute, but on the flipside there’s a silver lining for investing in high-density, transit-oriented developments for this very reason. Industry experts note that as traffic continues to worsen […]


We’re Thankful for The Issaquah Turkey Trot

Our Issaquah community is proud to rally to serve our neighbors in need, and nowhere does that sense of doing for others come through more than on Thanksgiving Day. All of us at Juniper Capital are thrilled to spotlight The Issaquah Turkey Trot, a noble event with a vital community purpose: helping those in need of food and clothing. Even in the most prosperous communities, there is often an entire hidden population struggling. We are thankful for the Turkey Trot because it benefits The Issaquah Food & Clothing Bank, which is there to provide support to hundreds of local families each week.  Juniper Capital is headquartered in this town and our team applauds this community effort. We encourage everyone to […]


Coming in Hot: Multifamily Sales on the Eastside

We congratulate our friends Tim, Sam and Dan at Collier’s for recently closing the second largest deal of the year…and it happened right here in Issaquah, the hometown where Juniper Capital is located! All of us at Juniper tip our hat to this $125 million, off-market deal. As King County’s second-largest multifamily sale of 2019, the sale illustrates how the Eastside has endured as a highly desirable residential location and is resurging to become one of the Pacific Northwest’s most appealing investment markets. The Puget Sound Business Journal’s real estate reporter Marc Stiles noted the sale, citing in a recent headline “Issaquah is the region’s hottest apartment market.” It helps of course that top technology campuses (Microsoft, SpaceX, eBay, SAP […]

As Northwest private money lenders, we specialize in commercial real estate loans, land development loans, and more. Contact us today for more information about market trends, a current market valuation of your specific development, or any questions you may have about the real estate loan process.

One means to easing the burden of rising housing costs is to encourage the supply of affordable housing. A community land trust (CLT) can do just that. Recently the […]


The Nightmare at Beaver Lake

Juniper Capital is delighted to share another fun community event presented by the Rotary Club of Sammamish: The Nightmare at Beaver Lake!

Get your tickets here. This history […]


Affordable Housing in South King County

At Juniper Capital, we aim to keep you informed about recent real estate developments and relevant news impacting Seattle and the Pacific Northwest. As Northwest private money lenders, we specialize in commercial real estate loans, land development loans, and more. Contact us today for more information about market trends, a current market valuation of your specific development, or any questions you may have about the real estate loan process. The Seattle area housing squeeze is far from over; if the pace of increasing rents is any indicator, the squeeze has simply moved its way south into areas such as Kent, Renton, Auburn and Burien. Recently a nine-city consortium called South King Housing and Homelessness Partners formed to maintain the area’s role as […]


Building Community: The Issaquah Chamber of Commerce

In almost every town, community-building starts with its nearest chamber of commerce.  The Issaquah Chamber of Commerce, our local chamber deserves a spotlight for its many efforts. Nowhere is this better illustrated than its annual Salmon Days festival Oct. 5 and 6, uniting local businesses, families and neighbors. Juniper Capital tips our hat to the Chamber for 50 years of Salmon Days! This event celebrates one of the area’s treasured natural phenomena: the annual return of the salmon in the town’s waterways and hatchery—approximately two tons per year! Early Salmon Days celebrations started with a Kiwanis Salmon BBQ, salmon hatchery displays, an art show, children’s parade led by the late J.P. Patches and more. In 1980 Salmon Days’ festival and […]

Contact us today for more information about market trends, a current market valuation of your specific development, or any questions you may have about the real estate loan process. In a recent Seattle Times story citing planned apartment construction in Seattle taking a record-setting dip, some analysts speculate at hints of a recession. City issued permits to build 14,816 multifamily units in the 12-month period ending July dipped of 6.3% compared to last year’s permitting. And as of June, Seattle had 19,345 apartments […]


Megablocks: We fund that too

Last week Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan announced the $143.5 million sale of a city-owned, underutilized area in South Lake Union. The buyer, experienced in supporting spaces for biotech industries, plans on transforming the 2.8 acres of land into a new life sciences campus for biotech or medical research, with many community perks. The transaction would close in early 2020 with construction permitting to follow. Juniper Capital recognizes this is one of last large plots of undeveloped land in Seattle’s SLU tech hub. The potential for this property, and the impact of this sale, are significant – the buyer will build 175 subsidized apartments for low-income residents, make a $5 million donation to address homelessness, build a new community center for […]
