Since its inception in the early 90’s, the firm takes pride in providing its clients with service and guidance through the ever changing financial world. Through its unique “Controlled Competition”, the firm provides clients with a myriad of choices of lending vehicles. After evaluating the options available, the firm uses its extensive knowledge of the lending arena to insure that their clients receive the loan that best suits their specific needs. In the past decade, over 90% of the loans closed by the firm were funded for a returning borrower or a borrower who has since used the firm to close additional loans. This attention to detail and service is the reason the firm has many repeat customers.
