We tried other lenders that indicated they would have no problem completing a refi for our investment property, given our credit situation. In each case it was a waste of time and money. In an environment where banks do not lend, it was such a relief to find Forrest Financial. Chuck is fair, efficient, and knowledgeable. He explained the hard money process to us and was available whenever questions came up. The transaction was smooth and fast, and he is an absolute pleasure to work with.
I contacted Chuck through a mutual client and proposed a cash out refi on a property that we had acquired and cleaned out with some basic value added by new roof and HVAC units. We needed cash out to further other projects that we had in process. Chuck asked “When do you need the money?”. I told him that we would like to close in 5 days. He said he would drive up and meet me at the property that next morning. The meeting was on time, his previous lending experience was invaluable in being able to review what we purchased, the value added and he was satisfied with where we were going with the property. Closed on the 5th day. Property is now under contract with a substantial profit anticipated upon closing.
It has been a great pleasure to work with Chuck as our lender on several deals. He not only is professional in his demeanor, but shows a sincere interest in the rejuvenation of Denver neighborhoods and the production of quality work. He takes pride is his relationships with real estate investors and is constantly sending referrals to help expand our business presence as well. He does business with integrity, follows through with his commitments, and is timely with his decisions. We appreciate his contribution to our business.
