RENO, Nev. — Bay Area-based lending and mortgage firm Bay Equity Home Loans has expanded to open a branch at 200 S. Virginia St. in downtown Reno.
Basin Street Properties, owners of the 200 South Virginia high-rise property, announced the move in a Sept. 10 news release.
Representing Basin Street Properties in the 2,922-square-feet office space lease was Dominic Brunetti and Scott Shanks of Dickson Commercial Group. Representing Bay Equity was Matt Grimes of CBRE.
Based in Sausalito, California, Bay Equity is a “family-owned and community-minded mortgage lender,” according to the company’s website.
It’s licensed in 32 states, with retail branches in 23 states.

“Bay Equity is a perfect addition to 200 South Virginia,” Scott Stranzl, Chief Portfolio Officer for Basin Street Properties, said in a statement. “It will fit well with our mix of technology, real estate, telecom and coworking tenants.”
