This is an important question to the writer of this blog because the motives having to do with why a commercial lender is in the commercial loan business is connected to the effectiveness of that lender.

I believe this would be a good question to ask a commercial lender you are interviewing to see if you want that lender to represent you. It is an unusual question to ask, but it could give insight into the quality of the commercial loan person as well as the commercial loan company.

I believe this is the kind of question that may be able to help bring out... more

  • A direct lender who represents only one loan program is less likely to have the knowledge of the loan products that are on the market. Therefore, it’s quite possible... more
