We are broker focused.

For over 40 years our brokers have benefited from our upfront fees, prompt payments, and fast closing times.

At Val-Chris, we love our brokers. That’s because we both benefit from swift, smooth transactions and happy mutual clients.

Unlike conventional lenders, we provide extremely unique and customized loan packages to borrowers.  Whether it is a residential loan, commercial, industrial or any other type – we can make it work.  Using private money allows us to find an arrangement between us and a borrower that is mutually beneficial for both parties. Because we are a direct lender, we have the opportunity to provide our borrowers with the best terms possible. 

Speed of Closing

Our loans close fast, many times in 5 – 14 days. This means less time dealing with problems and red tape.

Upfront Fees & Payment

Give us a call and we’ll let you know all about it. We provide information on our fees prior to docs and our brokers get paid promptly after recording.

Customized Loan Packages

Borrowers with unique requirements commonly hear “no”. Not with us, we go above and beyond to find solutions.

Information for brokers.

Private money lending has a number of unique properties and requirements which make our transactions possible.  Backed by a promissory note and trust deed, our investors are secured with a real-estate asset.  Because of this, our borrowers have extremely flexible terms and a much faster application process.
