The funds we lend are that of the two Co-Presidents and an institutional private equity group which places capital from a state pension fund. We do not sell or broker our loans.

Yes we do. Broker fees are paid by the borrower (brokers negotiate their fees directly with the borrower) and are in addition to our fees. Broker must be licensed as a California real estate broker. We can make note the broker fees in our loan proposal.
How fast can you close your loan?
Generally, we can fund a rehab loan in 5 business days or less, but it will depend on how quickly you can get us our due diligence and how fast escrow and title can move. Ground up construction loans generally take more time to close given their higher level of complexity and due diligence, so generally at least 2-3 weeks.

do you offer 100% financing?
No, borrowers must provide some cash equity, depending on the loan type. For more information click here.
