Welcome to Remington Financial Group
Remington Financial Group (RFG), a veteran investment banking firm, secures financing of $1 million and up for commercial real estate projects. RFG has a track record of delivering money for slightly unconventional developments or properties. The company can look past a property's immediate problems and help owners realize the full profit potential on their investments.
RFG is known for securing financing on extremely complex deals with incredibly fast turnaround times. The company was founded in 1993, and over the past 15 years, has grown because of its quick understanding of a client's financing objectives and its ability to move quickly with its lenders. In 2007, RFG closed more than $1 billion in client transactions, and the company in on track to exceed that figure for 2008.
Remington Financial Group is an entrepreneurial organization, and, although it is open to financing higher-risk projects, it usually requires developers or builders to have at least three years’ experience. RFG also prefers to invest in projects located in strong markets, where sell-out or stabilization may occur within two years.
RFG's other financial solutions include second mortgages, mezzanine financing, bridge loans and long-term B-paper loans. RFG also finances many joint venture (JV) projects. Typically, RFG provides JV financing for condo developments and hospitality industry properties. The company can provide up to 100 percent financing on joint ventures on all types of properties. The loan to sell out value ratio ideally should not exceed 80 percent.
The company typically secures $1 million to $15 million in financing on joint venture projects. RFG has secured as much as $140 million on past JV developments, and it will consider financing up to $500 million on certain deals.
