This hard money lender is SO different from the others because they form local partnerships with all their clients. Because this company believes in nurturing that local connection, they work tirelessly to find solutions for every lending situation. Tim also dives into how to spot scammers, how LTV works, and using lenders to scale your business. Jen also gets Tim to spill the beans about an innovative app they are working on so investors can keep more money in their pockets!
