Working with West Forest Capital was the best choice I could have made for my real estate funding needs. I was under a tight deadline on an expiring short sale in Newark, NJ and they got it done. I won't hesitate to use them again. Thanks for the great service and professionalism.

I discovered West Forest Capital Through my realtor when my original lender was not being responsive to my request & concerns. The team at West Forest Capital responded within minutes and got my loan done on schedule. I just funded the first part of my rehab with them. Just wanted to say thanks for being so easy to work with!

The West Forest Capital team was a pleasure to deal with. I spoke directly to the decision makers which greatly cut down the back and forth (they are the fastest lender I know and besides being a real estate investor I’m also a realtor). They were flexible on terms and really seemed to know the market. If you need an hard money loan, use them - they will deliver.

I would highly recommend West Forest Capital as a lender. Unlike other lenders they really do what they promise. I was operating under a tight time frame, which they not only met but exceeded while keeping me in the loop on all the status updates. I'm also very pleased with the rate and the LTV I was offered. Will definitely use them next time!

West Forest Capital is great if you need a hard money loan or a bridge loan. They are fast and flexible. They have a very simple approval process (not multi-layer) so rehab funds get sent really quickly. I Strongly recommend them. Very easy to work with and straight to the point. No run arounds and get the job done on time. They got me a loan in a week after I wasted 2 months with another hard money lender.

I am not a classic real estate investor, but I do own a business with high capital needs. West Forest Capital is able to provide us funds based on our real estate holdings which is much faster and cheaper than going to another lender. The team is very friendly and knows the business inside out, so we always get the best available terms.

Before undertaking a real estate project, I like to consult with West Forest Capital. They are not only my go to lender, but also a great sounding board for advice. They have A LOT of connections in the market (I think at least one of the partners is a developer himself), and are always happy to share knowledge. A rare find in the industry.

I had a great experience with them. The service from West Forest Capital was probably one of the best I've come across in the industry and I've worked with dozens of hard money lenders over the decades that I've been in real estate, as well as other ventures. Their communication was excellent and timely. After contacting them you get a likely approval right there on the phone, because they know the right questions to ask to make their best assessment as quickly as possible. They understand that you have a business of your own to run and time is money. I will continue to work with them on two projects I have coming up, after which I will be happily retiring (which I would have done long ago if I wasn't such a workaholic).
