Why Us

More than 460 transactions and $300 million financed in real estate loans.

We provide our own funding.
Our goal is to close everytime, on time!

Our approach to lending is asset-based rather than credit based. We provide fast and creative solutions for investors and real estate owners in need of immediate funding, and for those who do not wish to be exposed to the lengthy application process with conventional lenders.
