Peter Goedecke

Peter Goedecke has been active in commercial real estate finance since earning his MBA from Stanford University in 1973 (43 years and counting).  He co-founded Fowler, Goedecke & Co., Inc. in 1974, participated in its acquisition of Leggat McCall & Werner Financial Corporation in 1981 and subsequent growth as Fowler Goedecke Ellis & O’Connor, Inc. to become the Northeast’s largest privately-held mortgage banking firm.

Coincident with the sale of FGEO to Amresco in 1998, Peter bought out of the required non-compete agreement and founded Goedecke & Co., LLC to carry on the mission of its predecessor:  the confidential provision of advice free of conflicts of interest leading to the arrangement of real estate financings optimized for the client and the investor, not the intermediary, with a concentration on New England assets.

In conjunction with founding and running the two firms, during his career Peter has successfully arranged literally billions in financing for virtually every type of income producing real estate, under nearly every conceivable financial structure.

Peter and his wife reside principally in Cohasset, Massachusetts, but spend time in the Pacific Northwest with their two children and five grandchildren.
