There’s the traditional. It’s comfortable. It’s familiar. But too often it’s also slow and rigid. That’s especially true when it comes to real estate financing and investing. Traditional financing institutions operate under guidelines that make it impossible to move quickly or creatively.

We recognize at Pelorus Equity Group that there’s a need for an alternative. That includes more innovative transactional solutions that can address the diverse needs of real estate investors and portfolio managers. Our flexible acquisition and bridge lending programs are the direct result of our involvement in more than 4,700 transactions of varying size and complexity. Since 1991, our principals have participated in more than $1 billion of real estate investment transactions using both debt and equity solutions. We draw on our extensive experience to rapidly understand an opportunity, structure a logical solution and execute a timely close.
