Alpha Funding Partners was formed to help real estate investors, brokers, and referral partners to get immediate access to direct capital in an easy and affordable way.
We understand that projects are complicated and that the lending process can be confusing. To solve that, we provide timely feedback, the perfect loan for every project, transparent terms, and professional support to make every project successful.
As a successful lender with over 50 years of combined experience, Alpha Funding Partners believes in building strong and lasting relationships. We underwrite and approve loans in-house and our team works quickly to immediately review, approve, and fund projects.
Once projects begin, Alpha brings years of lending and project management experience to every partnership. We offer a seasoned team with rich experience as lenders, borrowers, project managers, general contractors, and entrepreneurs. We know what investors need when they need it. We are pros working for pros and we welcome the opportunity to earn your next project while helping your business grow.
These concepts drive our internal interactions as well as how our team works with our clients.
Over the years we have always invested back in the operations and technology to improve all aspects of the business. Many of these changes have come from our internal team but also from our feedback and interactions with our borrowers. We work in a fast-paced industry where our staff and borrowers need to work together to provide the best results – understanding the real needs and the project of our borrower is key to our success.
This has resulted in 50% to 70% repeat business on a monthly basis and great employees who have been with the company for years.
