Track Record

Since 1994 we have participated in over $1 billion in commercial real estate transactions wearing multiple hats:

  • real estate broker
  • mortgage broker
  • investor
  • developer
  • correspondent lender
  • private lender
  • consultant
  • expert witness

One of our proudest accomplishments is closing 36 transactions with one principal and 35 loans with one lender. The goal of every business day is to find new relationships that can surpass these records.
