Collateral: Real estate assets. We specialize in land, land development loans and other property types (e.g., hotels and special purpose properties) whose special circumstances disqualify them from lowest-rate financing. We also provide “bridge loans” on traditional multi-family, retail and office properties that need to be “turned-around” before they can qualify for conventional loan underwriting.

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.

Loan Flexibility:
Alliance’s works hand in hand with this lender and together we will strive to tailor a loan structure to fit your deal, unlike so many other institutions that require your deal to fit their structure.
