"The third quarter was yet another great quarter for Walker & Dunlop, led by the 28% growth in revenue and 45% growth in EPS over the third quarter of 2015," commented Willy Walker, Walker & Dunlop's Chairman and CEO. "With year-to-date EPS of $2.51, up 26% over last year, and a very strong pipeline leading into the fourth quarter, we will once again generate strong double digit earnings per share growth in 2016 for the third consecutive year."

"The United States continues to create over one million households per year, and increasingly those households live in rental housing. Walker & Dunlop's market position, having supplied over 5% of total debt capital to the Multifamily industry in 2015, and ever-expanding footprint and financial products, positions our company extremely well for continued growth in this expanding, dynamic industry," Walker continued. "Freddie Mac recently released their 2016-2020 multifamily financing market projections, and with projected growth from $282 billion in 2016 to $300 billion in 2017, Walker & Dunlop has the clients, scale, and expertise to continue growing at a dramatic pace. Our team, and partnerships with clients and capital sources, have never been stronger nor more valuable."
