Harvest Separates From Competitors
Senior/Seasoned Business Development Officers – Generally, Harvest BDOs are hired with at least 10 years (and normally much more) of experience underwriting and selling commercial real estate loans.
Commercial RE Focused – While other lenders are bogged down looking at all small business products (equipment, working capital, business acquisitions, etc.), Harvest focuses 100% of our efforts on generating commercial real estate loans.
Streamlined Processing – Not only does Harvest seek out the best BDOs, but we also hire best-in-class talent in the back office. This allows for efficient underwriting, thorough and accurate credit memoranda, and loan closers who can see “through the woods” to identify potential issues and provide solutions.
Solution Oriented in Our Approach to Working with Clients – We are constantly looking for better ways to get from point A to point Z with our clients and to serve as a trusted advisor to our clients during the loan process.
Family Environment – Our “secret sauce” is empowering our employees to take ownership of each loan request. This allows for a sense of pride among our employees. Everyone works as a team to accomplish our common goal of closing CRE loans.
