              AMERICAN FINANCIAL REALTY TRUST PROVIDES SUPPLEMENTAL
                         FINANCIAL INFORMATION FOR 2004

JENKINTOWN, Pa., March 7, 2005 - American Financial Realty Trust (NYSE: AFR), a
real estate investment trust focused on acquiring and leasing properties
occupied by financial institutions, today released additional supplemental
information regarding the Company's financial results for the year ended
December 31, 2004, that were originally announced on February 24, 2005. The
Company is providing the supplemental materials in response to requests during
the Company's recent earnings call for this additional information.

Attached as Exhibit A to this press release is the Company's unaudited balance
sheet as of December 31, 2004. An audited balance sheet will be included in the
Company's Form 10-K, which will be filed later this month. In its future
quarterly press releases, the Company intends to include unaudited summary
balance sheet information as of the period end date for which the Company's
earnings are being presented.

Attached as Exhibit B to this press release is a reconciliation of the Company's
previously reported net income and funds from operations ("FFO") for the year
ended December 31, 2004, to FFO as defined by the National Association of Real
Estate Investment Trusts ("NAREIT"). In its future quarterly press releases, the
Company intends to include a reconciliation of net income both to the NAREIT
definition of FFO and to FFO and adjusted funds from operations ("AFFO") as
defined by the Company.

EXHIBIT B Set forth below is a reconciliation of the Company's previously reported GAAP net income (loss) and FFO as defined by the Company to FFO as defined by NAREIT for the year ended December 31, 2004: Year Ended December 31, (in thousands, except per share data) 2004 ----------- (unaudited) Funds from operations: Net loss (1).............................................. $ (22,245) Minority interest in Operating Partnership................

(17,693) --------- 69,660 Gains on sales of properties, net of taxes ............... (11,864) --------- Funds from operations (NAREIT definition) (1)............. $ 57,796 ========= Funds from operations per share (Company definition, diluted)............................................... $ 0.76 ========= Funds from operations per share (NAREIT definition, diluted) ............................................. $ 0.50 ========= (1) Net loss includes property impairments of $3,614 ($0.03 per share). These impairments relate to properties subsequently sold or which were held for sale as of December 31, 2004. Pursuant to NAREIT's guidance published in February 2004, these impairments have not been added back to net loss in calculating FFO as defined by NAREIT, even though they relate to properties sold or held for sale. Non-GAAP Financial Measures The Company believes that FFO is helpful to investors as a measure of the Company's performance as an equity REIT because it provides investors with an understanding of the Company's operating performance and profitability. The Company includes gains and losses from property sales in its definition of FFO because it believes that strategic disposition of properties is a significant component of the Company's business model, and that gains and losses from dispositions demonstrate (in part) the Company's execution of its business model. FFO is a non-GAAP financial measure commonly used in the REIT industry, and therefore this measure may be useful in comparing the Company's performance with that of other REITs. However, the Company's definition of FFO differs from NAREIT's definition of FFO and investors should take definitional differences into account when comparing FFO reported by other REITs (including particularly those REITs that exclude gains and losses from property sales in their definition of FFO). Additionally, FFO and FFO per share should be evaluated along with GAAP net income and net income per share (the most directly comparable GAAP measures) in evaluating the performance of equity REITs.

The following information was filed by American Financial Realty Trust on Monday, March 7, 2005 as an 8K 2.02 statement, which is an earnings press release pertaining to results of operations and financial condition. It may be helpful to assess the quality of management by comparing the information in the press release to the information in the accompanying 10-K Annual Report statement of earnings and operation as management may choose to highlight particular information in the press release.
