“Harry Cheatham and Love Funding not only introduced us to our first multi-family purchase opportunity but also how to employ the very favorable Section 223(f) HUD mortgage insurance program to finance our acquisition under very favorable terms. Their expeditious processing allowed us to benefit from a very favorable rate environment. We look forward to working with Love Funding’s team of professionals again in the near future for our next acquisition.” —Brock Thomas, Managing Member of Prominent Properties, LLC.
