We recently went through our second agency acquisition. We shopped around with several lenders and ultimately chose to work with David.

Not only did he have the best rate, but he was very professional and great to work with. If I ever had questions, he was there with a quick answer.

Even though we have never met face-to-face, I know I can trust David to do his best for me, and I look forward to working with him and 1st Commercial in the future."

Writing this note in support of Mr. David Goldstein.

I had the opportunity recently to acquire another independent agency in my hometown, a tremendous growth opportunity for my small business. The purchase had to be financed, it had to be a cash deal, and it had to be closed relatively quickly.

Since it was quite a significant financial investment for my business, I researched this topic extensively. Of all of the lenders that I came across in this search, I found David to be the most knowledgeable and resourceful; he had thorough knowledge of his industry.

He helped me in finding the best terms that I was able to get from any lender, and then saw the process through all the way to closing the deal, capably answering all of my questions and concerns along the way.

If you have a need for financing the purchase of an agency I would highly recommend that you put David and 1st Commercial Lending on the "short list" of lenders that you need to give strong consideration to working with.

Best Regards,

When other lenders couldn't find a bank to help fund my acquisition, David was able to come through and secure funding from a bank within 30 days.

He kept myself and the bank regularly updated with any additional requirements for underwriting and necessary paperwork.

I would recommend David and 1st Commercial Lending for anyone who is looking to secure a loan for their business.

Mike Furlong was Awesome.

We did an SBA loan. The process was very complex and although we had some hick-ups through the process Mike stuck with me, the grumpy client.

He was able too sooth my ruffled feathers and get the loan processed. Through the process he kept saying we should be able to do it and it ended up approved. He continually kept in contact with me and worked very hard to close the deal.

I can not say enough positive remarks about Mike.

"Hi Mike,

Just to let you know that we really appreciate the professional way that you have conducted the transaction.

In our many years in the Property Management and Real Estate business, we have encountered good and bad Loan Agents, but never one so truthful, prompt and competent as you. Everything was upfront, no hidden fees, or broken promises

You are definitely a person to keep in mind for our next project.

Thanks again for the good job!

"1st Commercial Lending really came through for us when my sisters and I wanted to open our small business a few years ago. In a time when banking is so volatile, it was nice to know that someone was on our side to work with us in achieving a small business loan. Mike made the grueling process much simpler and fought for us and our goal.

The people at 1st Commercial are not afraid to roll up their sleeves and work hard to help you get the loan that you need!

Michael and Jason did a great job on our financing request. They were able to get us a 30-Year Fixed Term for our 17-Unit Industrial Warehouse comples in Miami, FL.

Thank you for all of your help and commitment to our success."

I was introduced to Jason Lavoie through a mutual friend when I was having trouble finding a lender for my 52-Unit Apartment Complex in North Miami. I was given an offer by my lender to payoff at a steep discount. Every lender I spoke with was asking for large upfront fees for due-dillegence.

Being local to South Florida, Jason could see the value in my real estate and was able to structure the refinance I needed. I couldn't have done it without 1st Commercial Lending!"

I recently purchased an existing commercial building for my dental practice. I had been looking for a building or land for a couple of years, but had never found what I needed. When this property became available, I wanted to jump on it. Unfortunately, the bank who owned the building wanted everything done and closed in a very short time frame.

I was put in touch with Mike at 1st Commercial Lending and the deal took off from there. He was very helpful in accomplishing the dozens of items that came up throughout the process. He was always willing to take care of things. Whenever I was unable to get something done, Mike would step in and make it happen.

I would wholeheartedly endorse Mike Furlong and 1st Commercial Lending."
