Top Five Things to Consider for Ordering a Land Survey

“Stafford and Mike, thanks for supporting me with all the projects we have done over the years! You guys, Tracy, and the rest of the team are always efficient and easy to work with. I look forward to a prosperous 2018 and beyond with your support!”

—Sam B—

“I highly recommend Investmark as a hard money lender! I have used them on two deals and I’ve had numerous discussions with them about potential deals. They are very professional and knowledgeable about the housing investment industry. They are also patient with all the questions I’ve had and they answer my phone/emails at all times of the day. I plan to use them again in the future and if you use hard money to finance a loan Investmark should be your choice!”

—Jerry D—

“Investmark Mortgage has funded 8 deals for me in the last 2 years and I wouldn’t use anyone else. Aside from financing, I lean on Mike as a mentor for flips and investing strategies. He’s fair, efficient and knowledgeable in all aspects of real estate investing and lending”

—Evelyn A—

“Mike is a great lender to use. He is a very knowledgeable lender who explains and answers your questions until you understand it! He is very fast at replying back to emails and especially calling you back when you leave a message. He makes you feel right at home and not feel like you’re dealing with a head honcho! He’s down to earth and I like that! I will use Mike again on our next property and thereafter too!”

—Luis R—

“Being new investors, the whole process seemed scary to us but Mike was very helpful with our first rental property. He was always available to answer questions, always returned our calls and emails. Mike is a great lender with the heart of a teacher. We would recommend him 100% and look forward to working with him again!”

—Sam H—

“I would highly recommend Mike as both a hard money lender and a key member of my real estate team. Mike has a wealth of investor knowledge including tax protests, which helped me put a 33% tax savings back into my pocket in the first year. Mike answered all of my calls, emails, and issued draws promptly. I will definitely use him as my hard money lender for my future deals. Thanks, Mike!”

—Dan S—

“Mike was awesome to work with! He was very patient with all of my questions and walked me through all of the fees, line by line. He also gave me invaluable information about qualifying tenants and setting the appropriate deposit amounts etc. I would suggest Mike in a heartbeat!”
