For commercial mortgage brokers, the number one priority is to close loans. To accomplish this, it’s crucial to develop relationships with good lenders. You’re going to want to partner with lenders who are adaptable and willing to work with you and your clients, who offer support and guidance, and who take a good deal of the back-end work off your plate so that you can focus on bringing in new business.

Below is a selection of our blogs written to help brokers recognize what makes a great lender partner.

To be successful, it’s important for mortgage brokers to work with a variety of lenders, including flexible lenders who specialize in small-balance commercial financing.

The Benefits of a Small-Balance Commercial Lender Who Handles Processing

Closing small-balance commercial mortgages can be an easy way for residential brokers to expand their product offerings and earn more. However, it’s important to determine whether a lender handles processing or whether you’ll be expected to take care of it yourself. It’s much simpler for brokers when the lender handles things like ordering the appraisal and title work and scheduling the closing.
