At LYNK Capital, mortgage lending is in our blood. In fact, we have decades of experience in this business, with members of our team having either owned or held senior positions in numerous mortgage companies, banks, title companies, and other real estate businesses. We’ve also been property investors ourselves, and understand the importance of receiving fast, knowledgeable service from a lender.

Immediately prior to founding LYNK Capital, our management team operated the mortgage lending division of a mid-sized bank that consistently closed over $1.0b of loans per year. This experience has given us a firm understanding of the needs of our borrowers and investors – and has also shown us how the increasing regulatory burdens placed on banks prevents them from meeting these needs.

We founded LYNK Capital to provide a better experience for real estate investors and developers – one founded on decades of experience in real estate lending and investments.

I want to personally thank the team at LYNK Capital for all of your hard work on this closing! We work with hard money lenders all of the time, and you are most certainly a stand-out!

Matthew M.

THE MCCORD LAW FIRM

As a general contractor, it can be difficult to predict workloads and keep crews busy, especially in the off-seasons. LYNK Capital showed me that investing in my own projects can be a great supplement to my contracting business - letting me keep my crews busy and making money year-round. LYNK gave me the insight and provided the financing to make it work.

Jeff T.

PRESIDENT, METROPOLITAN EXTERIORS

LYNK Capital has been a valuable lending partner through several projects - they’ve taken the time to gain an in-depth understanding of our business model and provide a financing solution that helps to grow our business. We’ve worked with several hard money lenders over the years, and LYNK Capital is by far the most flexible and responsive.
