Testimonials

“We have to thank Love and HUD for all of their efforts in getting our financing in place. This wasn’t a standard 221(d)(4) loan and we are very grateful to them for their tireless work on our behalf. Our cash flow will be significantly better than it would have been had we opted to go with conventional financing, and Laura was able to rate lock for us at a time of historically low rates.” — David Brooks, St. Paul Square

“Our expansion would not have been possible without all the due diligence and hard work behind the scenes of the transaction. Laura and her team went above and beyond at every turn and had such a positive attitude that we would succeed. They receive high marks and are not just our lenders; they’ve also become our friends. We would not hesitate to recommend them to other borrowers.”
— David Rotolo, co-owner of Briar Hill Management

“I cannot say enough about Laura Saull-Smith. She was very thorough, responsive, professional, and dedicated to getting our loan closed. She was a delight to work with, and I would not hesitate to do business with her again or recommend her to others.”
— John Goode, Senior Housing LLC, DBA Senior Housing Management Group, Inc.

“Laura Saull-Smith is very responsive and shows a great understanding of the underlying business, whether it be multifamily apartments or healthcare. This knowledge enables her to add significant value to what would otherwise be customary mortgage banking services”
— Steve Rother, Post Polak Goodsell MacNeill & Strauchler
