“I decided to give Brookview a try and it turned out to be the best step I could have taken. They have been absolutely fantastic! They matched me with my National Account Manager, and he has mentored me through this entire process, as both a teacher and a friend. The entire team is always there to answer any questions or concerns. They treat me as though I am their only client, though I know there must be thousands. Also, while other lenders are pulling out of Michigan, Brookview has continued to believe in and fund new investors! I have referred many of my peers to Brookview. They allow you access to quick and consistent funds. If you truly want to get the best start, or would like to take your rehab business to the next level, you MUST go with the best: Brookview Financial.”
“All of our experiences with Brookview Financial throughout the years have been smooth and pleasurable. It has been an absolute joy to do work for Brookview. The contractors are always professional and the homeowners are courteous. Brookview’s organization is far superior to others we have worked with.”
“It is truly a pleasure to work with people who are not only competent, but actually look at their borrowers as individuals on their own merits. After years of searching, I had all but given up on finding such a lender. Brookview is a one-of-a-kind find. If you have the track record, know what you are doing and the numbers work, Brookview will come through like no others can. I consider it nothing short of a miracle that I was able to get financing in this lending climate even with my many years of experience. Brookview got the job done!”
“Brookview’s staff is professional and our business is more successful when we have access to such reliable financing. The staff’s knowledge of the rehab business reduces processing time, while maintaining a control over the quality of our deals. We look forward to our mutually beneficial partnership.”

“Renovators Insurance has had a successful national program now for many years by dealing exclusively with rehabbers directly. We had grown primarily by referrals, so when the opportunity presented itself for us to partner in an important relationship with Brookview Financial, we checked them out and talked with many of our clients who knew them or did business with them. And, without exception they were known as a top notch group of professionals dedicated to being leaders in their industry. Our experiences in the early and formative months together have borne this out and together we have been successful in helping many rehabbers with their insurance and knowledge of risk. We both believe, and remain committed to, assisting the small business owners help change the landscape of their local communities by improving the appearance and value of homes in hundreds of residential neighborhoods. We are grateful to have partners who are as committed to doing the transaction correctly for all parties, not just themselves. From the CEO, A.J., down to the loan processors, we have found everyone is focused on making it work professionally so the rehabber walks away from the table with value. We could not be happier to recommend this lender who we know takes pride in their contribution to neighborhood rebuilding and community development for the benefits of many.”
“Brookview provides an excellent education and financing mixture that gives real estate investors effective entrance and exit strategies when investing in properties. The client gets to work with representatives who help them understand the use and functionality of Brookview’s programs. The alliance I have with Brookview Financial has been essential for the success of my clients.”
“I can’t say enough about the professional manner and sincerity Brookview has shown in helping me through my first rehab. The entire staff at Brookview has been great: from the National Account Managers to the closers, to the accountants who helped me stay within my budget and on schedule with my project. My property has come a long way from where we started to where it is today. Thank you Brookview for all your help and support.”
“My relationship with Brookview spans at least 10 years. I have had contact with staff and managers from several departments, most frequently closing and occasionally National Account Managers and accountants. The people I have dealt with have always been courteous and professional. Questions I may have regarding appraisal assignments have always been answered promptly. It is much appreciated that Brookview is concerned that I am paid on time. Also, no one at Brookview has ever attempted to influence my opinions of value. Brookview representatives have always supported and respected my independence. The occasional disagreements with borrowers have always been resolved quickly and amicably. I am impressed with Brookview closers who expect an accurate appraisal to protect borrowers from deals that are not financially feasible. It has been a positive experience working with Brookview. I feel our relationship has been an excellent one. My hope is that it will continue indefinitely.”

“I have had the pleasure of closing loan transactions for Brookview Financial for several years. The entire Brookview team, including the CEO, is of the highest caliber personnel we deal with. Not only are they extremely well versed in the positions they hold, they are also very congenial and friendly to work with. The investors who borrow from Brookview keep going back again and again, and why not!? Once you find perfection, you stay with it!”
“I am a new investor in the real estate game and have found a partner in Brookview Financial. I would like to thank them for all their help during the purchase process. My National Account Manager and my closer made this process as easy as possible. They were able to get me the funds I needed to get my deal done. I look forward to many more deals with Brookview.”
“I have been a borrower of Brookview Financial since 2007 when they had funded a rehab project. With the shifting of the real estate market and problems with the contractors, this particular project became difficult and challenging to manage. Brookview had recognized that I was struggling with the project and assisted me in completing the rehab. They hired professional contractors and guided me through the process until conclusion and the property was sold. Brookview was not only a lender but also my ally when I was in trouble on a deal. Since that experience, I had come to personally know the CEO of Brookview Financial, AJ Funaro. Mr. Funaro is an intelligent, well-organized and compassionate individual who cares about the needs of his borrowers and the community. He operates the company with a high level of professionalism and quality and his staff is always professional and personable to their customers while building relationships one borrower at a time.”
“I have been working with Brookview Financial since 2007 and I fully recommend Brookview as part of a financial plan with an emphasis on safety, liquidity, maximum tax advantages and total return. Brookview has been in business for over 15 years, which gives them experience few private lenders have these days. AJ Funaro’s knowledge, character and sense of fairness are qualities that I demand of a private mortgage lender during these difficult times and are why I refer both my novice and experienced clients to Brookview for their residential investment property rehab lending needs.”

“The Brookview team treats each rehab project as if it is their own. Our rehabbers’ success is our own success and we put in the best efforts to make it happen. Working with a company that encourages its employees to be creative, knowledgeable and professional is a great attribute for me. I enjoy a work environment that is fast-paced, positive and whose employees can smile even on a bad day. Best of all, I am excited by what we do here: help revitalize communities. We enjoy it. We are passionate about it. We are proud of it. That really says a lot about the team that I work with. Brookview is helping people achieve their dreams and realize their passions. As a member of the Brookview team, I am constantly challenged to create solutions and accept each obstacle as an opportunity. I have yet to come across a CEO who is unmatched as a leader, a team player and a mentor. He has lauded victories, celebrated with us and helped over challenges. He has kept us focused through the financial storm we are facing. He is a great speaker and a wonderful motivator.”
“Brookview Financial gave me the confidence to make offers on deals, knowing that I could close quickly, and start building my business right away. The application process was easy and the whole team has been extremely helpful and responsive to my company’s specific needs. I couldn’t have left my Wall Street job without their help.”

“I have been a Brookview Financial client for many years and have been extremely pleased with the loan products and services. As a rehab investor there is nothing more valuable to me than a lender who can close fast and that always has the money available. Many lenders will tell you they have the money available, and then just before closing something goes wrong. My Brookview funded deals have always closed, closed quickly, and the money has always been available. I have never had a hassle with them and they are a pleasure to do business with.”

“Brookview Financial helped launch our business by providing the additional capital we needed to work on multiple rehabs simultaneously. Their ability to close quickly and provide a proof of funds letter has helped us close more deals by giving the sellers piece of mind.”
We bought half a city block in Baltimore and the financing was arranged through Brookview Financial. In fact, I think it is fair to say that if it wasn’t for Brookview, this deal would not have happened. Early on when we were getting ready to close we ran into some title problems. Brookview stayed in there with us the whole way through, they didn’t back out. This is a wonderful project for the neighborhood. This is an inner city neighborhood in Baltimore, and the types of people who buy houses like this are either first time homebuyers or investors who also see how the block is changing. This has been very good for everybody involved. On behalf of Tradewinds Realty Partners, thank you Michael, thank you A.J., without you guys this could not have happened.
