Company History

D. Ansley Company, a San Antonio-based commercial mortgage banking firm, was chartered in 1929. Originally, the company provided home loans, insurance and single family brokerage services to the San Antonio community. The company was operated by the Ansley family until 1969 at which time Frost National Bank, the largest San Antonio based commercial bank, purchased the company. Between 1969 and 1982, the relationship with Frost Bank was one of steady growth of earnings as well as mutual compatibility of the bank and the mortgage company. In 1982, the principals of the mortgage company purchased the company from the bank and D. Ansley Company, Inc. continued to prosper.

In 1989, Steve McAllister joined the company after spending seven years with a large Texas based mortgage banking firm where he left as vice president and manager of the San Antonio commercial loan department. In 1990, Steve McAllister purchased a significant share of ownership in the company and in 1996 became the majority stockholder.

D. Ansley Company’s financing capabilities expanded using the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Multifamily Insured Projects Programs for proposed and existing apartments. Shortly after HUD implemented its Multifamily Accelerated Processing (MAP) Program, D. Ansley Company was granted privileges to originate, close and administer construction loans for multifamily housing under the MAP Program.

In 1999, the company expanded with the addition of David Holmes and the Austin Production Office. In addition to David’s loan origination, he brought with him several new institutional investors to D. Ansley Company. Prior to joining D. Ansley Company, David served as head of the commercial mortgage banking operation for the western half of the United States for a Pittsburgh based commercial bank.

D. Ansley Company’s loan origination capability was further enhanced with David Aycock joining the company in 2007.

Currently, D. Ansley Company services income property loans in the aggregate amount in excess of $650 million through its originations in San Antonio, Austin, and all other major metropolitan areas of the state. In addition, D. Ansley Company is active originating and servicing loans in Laredo, the Rio Grande Valley, Corpus Christi, and smaller cities in West and East Texas. To meet the needs of borrowers, D. Ansley Company has originated out-of-state loans.

D. Ansley Company is recognized for its long-term employees in the Loan Origination, Administration, and Loan Servicing Departments of the company.
