Angelo G.

Philly Quad Fix-to-Rent Project

I feel like RFG has grown with me. When I was first learning the flipping business, they had me focus on single family homes. After I had some successes, I brought a mixed-use property to them that had a commercial space on the first floor. They listened to my plans, and approved my loan!

Angelo G.

Philly Mixed-Use Quadplex Building Fix-to-Rent Project

RFG is great! They expedite paperwork processing and funding, so I can get moving on the project ASAP.
