Panda Realty’s founders, Russell D. Beckwith and Mary Beckwith, established Metro Mortgage in 1990, in order to expand the services to their customers. They found that many property buyers and owners like to have "One-stop Shopping" for their real estate needs. The company primarily assists current and past Panda Realty clients with their financial needs.
In 1999, Marco Beckwith took over the operations of Metro Mortgage.

lending portion of the business. Furthermore, Mary Beckwith could
focus more on Panda Realty's primary business of real estate listings and
Metro Mortgage brokers loans for real estate clients from a variety of
conventional, institutional, and private sources to meet the financing
needs of their clients. They can package competitively priced loan
solutions to meet the complex needs of many first-time and overseas
