Red Star Commercial Real Estate Funding:

Commercial Real Estate Asset Based

Private Bridge Loan Fund - $2,000,000 - $100,000,000

Today’s challenging economy has left many quality commercial real estate properties un-stabilized.

More restrictive underwriting standards have left such properties unable to qualify for conventional,

life insurance or CMBS loans. Additionally, significant headwinds in the banking system and the

regulatory environment are forcing healthy banks to dramatically reduce their commercial real estate

exposure and service only existing clients. For those banks that are willing to lend, their appetite is often

limited to owner occupied properties, and renewals for their most valuable existing clients.


That's where RED STAR COMMERCIAL FUNDING steps in. Our value-add fast close bridge loan product

fills the large void in the market created by the credit crisis and provides the critical time and capital to get a

property stabilized. Our experienced team offers certainty of delivery on transactions under tight closing deadlines.


We are able to execute and close in many cases in less than 10 days - Nationwide!
