Alas, the World Cup is finally over, and we can all get a little more sleep in this “between time” for major sports. Entrepreneurs are always sleep deprived, so it was likely no big deal for them. Those are the folks we seek to serve as they take calculated risks and work to grow their companies. We do that by providing “game-changing” commercial real estate loans… creating wealth, while also helping them grow their operating companies with simply smarter financing.

I’ve been part of an organization called Young President’s Organization for some time–for over nine years now, and we get regular email communications on a daily basis, various deals and what not, and one day, I got one about someone who wanted to finance their commercial real estate. I responded and kicked off a nice conversation with this future borrower of mine.

And so, he had an opportunity to buy his office building … Read More
