I feel like I found my dream team at Anchor. I have five projects with them and closing on two more in the next couple weeks. They have been responsive and helpful with helping create a smooth flow. I continue bringing my projects there as they have truly earned my business. Thanks guys!

This is an incredible group of caring people. It is nice to see a company who truly wants to give back. Many companies are looking at their profit margin, however Anchor Loans looks at the big picture. Anchor Loans made a large donation to our Santa Clarita Veteran Enriched Neighborhood. It is easy for companies to write a check, but Anchor Loans put their employee power behind their donation and brought out a large team to help build the homes of the brave. Thank you for your philanthropy and incredible spirit of giving back to those who have served us so freely.
Anchor Loans has been a strategic and integral part of my renovation business. They continue to be a reliable resource for capital. Unlike many others in the same space, I truly feel that Anchor is a strategic partner in the success of my business. If you need capital for a fix-and-flip project, I wouldn’t hesitate to work with them.
I have completed many flip loans with Anchor over the past 3 years but they just completed a 7.5MM bridge loan for me on a large rental portfolio in less than 45 days. I could not be more pleased with the rate, costs and results!
I have done a series of loans with Anchor. I can't how please we were with the process. Regardless of whether it is a simple traditional loan or a complicated transaction the process was extremely fast, efficient and they delivered on each and every term proposed for our loans. I have used other capital sources but i can say without hesitation, Anchor Loans is a first class, business friendly lender.
I have been working with Anchor for the last 9 years and have closed close to 100 fix and flip loans with them. Lance, Stephanie and the team are awesome to work with and have been there when we have needed them. I have closed deals as fast as two days with them. They work really well with investors that know what they are doing. Like anything else in life, you need to invest in the relationship to get the rewards back. Keep up the good work!
I have worked with Anchor Loans on nine purchases since 2017. They have always responded to my requests immediately and have worked with me to get the best deal possible. They are always very professional and easy to work with. My deals have all closed quickly and with no hidden or unexpected costs. I have recommended them to fellow flippers and will continue to do so.
Anchor Loans is by far the best Private Lenders I have dealt with. David Rubin and Ashley Quadri are such a great team and always very responsive .. The best rates and their customer service is really on point. Deals with a tight closing date and difficulties they will get the job done. Anyone that’s an investor, builder, flipper etc... should be working with Anchor loans period.
Tom Taylor and Bernice Merino are truly professionals of the industry. The customer service level they provide at Anchor Loans is above all else. Consistency, service and flexibility are just some of the reasons we do business with Anchor Loans... give them a try!
Our company has worked with Anchor for several years and I have found them to be one of the quickest lenders to turn around loan requests with whom I have worked. And once you close on a construction loan, their draw processing is quick and seamless. We closed 5 loans with Anchor in the past year alone and have not experienced any problems. Everyone with whom we work at Anchor is incredibly responsive, especially Shane Lex and Stephanie Lee.
Anchor loans has been a great partner throughout the years, Shane and his whole team are great professionals to work with and their vast knowledge of the business is a great help to all type of investors.
I have been working with Lance, Lorraine, Kimberly and Kristina for 2 years now and couldn't be happier. they get it, they get the rush urgency and speed needs and deliver for us every time ! thank you Team Anchor!
