Gauntlet Funding is a New York based private funding group comprised of experienced and knowledgeable industry professionals who specialize in direct private lending and distressed asset financing. We provide loans to residential and commercial real estate investors in the New York metropolitan area and Florida. We are dedicated to our clients, providing both industry expertise and quick closings at competitive terms.

Unlike most lenders, Gauntlet Funding is a multi-million dollar backed investment company and the sole decision-makers on any property that we approve to finance, partner, sell or purchase. We never deploy any “middlemen”, brokers or any other 3rd parties when it comes to making our business decisions, which means that you will always deal directly with a Gauntlet Funding principal on every single deal.
