Working with Wilshire Quinn was an absolute pleasure from to start to finish. Working as a broker for a client with a vacant building Matt, Chris, and Jeremy were quick to answer all questions, clear in the items they needed and were able to work with us to see a successful completion of the deal. I can’t sing their praises highly enough for the ease at which everything went on what was a tricky deal, and I’m very much looking forward to working with them again in the future. If you’re hesitant for any reason, don’t worry. Wilshire Quinn is a top-notch group filled professional, courteous, and great people.

The Wilshire Quinn team did an excellent job in a short time frame. I feel their rates and ‘products’ are competitive. Where I feel they distance themselves from the competitors is their commitment to customer satisfaction. Every project has challenges and they are dedicated to working with their clients to ensure satisfaction, which is not commonplace in the market these days.

I'm not one to typically write reviews but I was so impressed with Wilshire Quinn Capital's service I felt it needed to be shared. I'm a mortgage broker and I recently referred a client to Wilshire Quinn who didn't qualify for any of our programs and needed to fund quickly on a house. I spoke with Matt Mielke and he was not only able to provide a great loan for the client but funded it with time to spare! The client thanked me for connecting him with Matt and as that was the only way he could finance his dream home. It was nice to be able to refer a hard money lender that did what he said he was going to do. I highly recommend Wilshire Quinn Capital for any hard money lending.

Advantages of a Private Money Loan

Whether you are looking to secure financing for a purchase, refinance, or cash-out refinance, here are some advantages to using a private money loan:

  1. Speed / Closing Time: Qualifying and being approved for a hard money loan is a significantly faster process than applying for a traditional loan through a bank. Wilshire Quinn typically funds private money loans in 5 to 7 business days.
  2. Credit score not a major factor: Asset based lending means we base our loan amounts on the value of real estate, such as an investment property, multifamily building, or commercial building, rather than strictly on a borrower’s credit score and debt to income levels.
  3. Rehab and non-stabilized property financing Properties that require substantial rehab or that have high vacancy rates often can be difficult for traditional lenders to finance. Private money lenders such as Wilshire Quinn have the ability to structure deals to allow investors to rehab and stabilize properties.
