" I have personally known Terry Painter and Apartment Loan Store since the early 2000's.  Since then, Terry is the first person we call when a commercial loan is needed - pretty much anywhere in the U.S. The best thing about Terry is his upfront work on the deal you are considering - you will know if your deal is going to get funded or not right away. That's huge! No other lender that I've worked over the last 20 years puts in as much work as Terry".
