The latest ranking of commercial mortgage originators includes the top agency originators, the biggest conduit lender and the largest commercial mortgage originators.

Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., originated more commercial mortgages last year -- 7,705 loans for $27.0 billion -- than any other U.S. originator, the Mortgage Bankers Association reported today.

The full 188-page report, which is available online as a PDF file for $350 ($250 for MBA members), reflected data submitted by 78 survey participants. Bank of America Corp., which ranked as the biggest commercial mortgage lender in the 2008 report, was not included among the latest participating firms.

Wells Fargo closed 7663 of the loans for $24.9 billion as a lender, making it the biggest commercial mortgage lender, while the 7,325 of the loans closed for $19.7 billion that made it into the bank's portfolio made it the biggest portfolio lender. Also included in the total were 7,645 loans for $26.3 billion closed through its direct origination channel, landing it in the No. 1 spot as a direct originator.

Wells Fargo was also the top originator for banks and thrifts, FHA and Ginnie, and real estate investment trusts.

Parent Wells Fargo & Co. was the biggest residential originator in 2009, with $420 billion in production, according to data tracked by

PNC Real Estate originated 701 commercial real estate loans for $9.7 billion during 2009 and ranked No. 2 in the trade group's overall ranking. PNC was also the biggest originator of multifamily mortgages for Fannie Mae, closing 219 apartment loans for $3.0 billion, according to MBA.

No. 3 Deutsche Bank Commercial Real Estate originated 265 mortgages for $7.7 billion. Third-party originations at Deutsche were 258 loans for $7.5 billion, making it the biggest third-party originator.

CBRE Capital Markets Inc. closed 404 units for $15.5 billion, giving it the fourth overall spot. CBRE topped the list of multifamily originators over at Freddie Mac, with 154 units closed for $2.6 billion.

The fifth biggest commercial real estate lender, HFF LP, closed 307 loans for $5.8 billion. In the ailing conduit category, HFF originated more commercial real estate loans than any other company: six transactions for $0.1 billion.

No. 6 on the overall ranking was Prudential Mortgage Capital Co., followed by Meridian Capital Group, which was the biggest originator acting as an intermediary with 1,131 loans for $4.6 billion closed as an intermediary.

MetLife, the eighth biggest overall commercial mortgage originator, ranked as the No. 1 originator for life insurance companies with 41 loans for $3.9 billion originated.
