Mitchell Ryan founded the company in 2013. He has more than 30 years of experience in real estate. He produced or led teams in New York and Chicago that originated over $5 billion in commercial mortgages for Guardian Life and MetLife.

During his time at the LifeCos., he developed various portfolio management systems that encompassed asset allocations, default and market pricing models.

While in Chicago, he was in charge of servicing the mid-west loan portfolio of approximately $3 billion in loans including the "cash flow mortgage" on Sears Tower. Mitchell managed two of MetLife's most prestigious real estate equities: Stuyvesant Town / Peter Cooper Village, consisting of 11,251 apartment units, and the 3 million square foot Pan Am Building (aka MetLife Building). At the time of MetLife's acquisition of The New England Mutual Life Insurance Company, he was charged with coordinating the underwriting of The New England's extensive real estate equity holdings. The photo on the top right shows Mitchell with (from left) St/PCV Resident Manager Hal Murphy, US Senator Al D'Amato and NY Senator Roy Goodman.

Earlier in his career, he produced residential loans for Dime Savings Bank of NY and was a property manager for a NY Real Estate Syndicator. Prior to founding MERCCREM, he spent a year originating CMBS loans.
