“I just wanted to let everyone know that the amazing Mayumi was up working with Ryan until 11pm last night – very impressive and would never have gotten this deal done without her!  Sandy you were amazing to put this entire deal together so quickly and make it happen – Mortgage Vintage is amazing!  Let’s get this one closed!  Have a great day!”

“From the initial offering presentation to the final funding, this TD investment was handled very smooth by Mortgage Vintage.  I appreciate the opportunity to be associated with a true professional like Sandy MacDougall. Trust Deed investments are a key portion of my financial portfolio.”

We had tried another private money lender for this Beverly Hills 1st TD for 30 days and kept getting strung along.  The lender kept saying that they had the money, when they did not.  My borrower was getting anxious and needed the money.  I had to act quick and go to a Lender that I knew would perform.  We had worked with Mortgage Vintage before but did not know that they could fund such a large loan as $5,600,000.  Within a few days of our original call, Mortgage Vintage visited the property, met the borrower, secured a lender and funded the loan.  Wow!

“I needed a lender that would move quickly for a cash-out refinance loan opportunity.  The borrower had a maturing loan and needed to fund a 3 year loan quickly in order to avoid penalties from the existing lender.  I called Mortgage Vintage and they provided an immediate quote and Term Sheet.  Mortgage Vintage deftly resolved a few Title issues and closed the loan before the pending existing loan maturity date.  I would highly recommend Mortgage Vintage for any Mortgage Broker seeking a qualified, experienced, fast and professional Hard Money Lender.

We needed a fast foreign national loan and we called Sandy at Mortgage Vintage.  Sandy and his team quickly provided a quote and the underwriting items needed to close.  Sandy worked with us while the buyer finalized the loan amount and down payment.  Mortgage Vintage told us what they would do and then they did it.  No games, no bait and switch, no changes at the last minute.  I would highly recommend Mortgage Vintage for brokers looking for a hard money loan.”

“I’m a mortgage broker and had a borrower that was proceeding with a Bank provided mortgage.  My borrower took advantage of a tremendous career opportunity and switched jobs a week before the non-owner occupied purchase transaction was going to close. The Bank’s underwriters decided that the borrowers income no longer qualified for the seasoning criteria and so the Bank denied the loan. I quickly called Mortgage Vintage, Inc. and they within one week underwrote, funded and closed the loan.  Converting to a Hard Money Loan with MVI allowed me to earn a commission on this mortgage transaction when the Bank said “No”.

“I have closed a number of Hard Money Loans with Mortgage Vintage, Inc. over the past few years and have always been very satisfied with the companies’ fast and professional service.  Sandy and his team quickly provided Pre-Approval letters and creative and competitive private money funding solutions for Short Sales with rapidly approaching loan closing deadlines.  Whenever we have a Real Estate Investor that needs a hard money loan to buy a Short Sale, we always consider our responsive colleagues at MVI.”

“I have worked with Sandy MacDougall at Mortgage Vintage, Inc. on a number of private money loan transactions and Mortgage Vintage, Inc. has performed superbly in all instances.  Sandy and his team delivered on their commitments and handled a Foreign National transaction quickly and efficiently. They kept me informed and, even with some Seller delays and issues, performed as I requested. Sandy also worked with me on a Business Purpose Cash-Out transaction and helped the borrower quickly gain access to the requested funds.  I would recommend Sandy for any private money loan transaction you might have.”

“As a mortgage broker with direct lender relationships funding conventional loans, I occasionally see a loan where borrowers don’t qualify for conventional financing. Recently, we had two loans which were late into the escrow period and denied by the Bank.  I called Mortgage Vintage, Inc. and they were very responsive, delivered as committed and provided a Private Money loan that allowed the buyers to proceed and close the purchase.

The Principals at Mortgage Vintage, Inc. are very professional, work efficiently and performed on time – even better than hoped.”
