What Our Clients Say

  • I have been an investor working with EquityMax for 20 years, and I must say it has been a great and profitable relationship.  EquityMax was able to lend me millions throughout the years even through the Great Recession when all other hard money lenders had no funds.  Currently I have almost thirty rental properties and several rehabs in process, all loans from EquityMax.   From the friendly staff and great advice from Brad and now Greg, EquityMax and their financial programs have been a crucial reason for my success. If you plan properly, and use the wealth of knowledge from both Brad and Greg, you too can have a long-term, and profitable relationship with the professional team at EquityMax.
