How do you save me money?
- We leverage our wide network of banks who provide us preferred rates due to our volume of loans.

- We keep the banks honest by having multiple offers.
- We negotiate the fees and rates on behalf of our clients.
- We have information that our clients might not be aware of, where we can reduce expenses.
What is the average reduction in rates?
A quarter to half a percent on their interest rate, plus the removal of different bank transaction fees can save you thousands over the term of the loan.
How do you save me time?
- We review the file to look for challenges to seeking capital. We present the loan to the bank to make their lives as easy as possible by eliminating issues before they come up in underwriting. The end result is that you have more offers in less time.
- If you only work with one bank, you might run into the issue of the bank turning down the loan, meaning you’ll have to start the entire process over with another banks. Gaining multiple offers at once reduces this occurrence.
- If there is a challenge that eliminates traditional financing or time is of the essence, we have in house private capital that can provide the needed solution. We will create a bridge loan to help close the deal and keep your business moving forward.
How do you solve problems before they come up?
- We know how the banks underwrite their loans based on our experience. Having experts preparing your file and presenting the loan in the best light. This strategy reduces the chance of future challenges delaying the funding of the loan.
- When the problem is such that no bank will provide financing, we have in house private capital to provide our clients the solutions they are seeking.
