Quick Response:
Our Partner has in-house staff for most preliminary market, engineering, and legal reviews, allowing us to quickly quote specific loan terms based on information provided in the loan request.

Portfolio Lender:
This hedge fund lender originates loans for its own portfolio so the borrower saves time and money dealing with one lender and one set of due diligence and closing personnel.
