About The LYNK Team

Our Story

At LYNK Capital, mortgage lending and real estate investing are in our blood. In fact, we have decades of experience in this business, with members of our team having either owned or held senior positions in numerous mortgage companies, banks, and other real estate businesses. We’ve also been property investors ourselves, and understand the importance of receiving fast, knowledgeable service from a lender.

Immediately prior to founding LYNK Capital, our management team operated the mortgage lending division of a mid-sized bank that consistently closed over $1.0b of loans per year. This experience has given us a firm understanding of the needs of our borrowers and investors – and has also shown us how the increasing regulatory burdens placed on banks prevents them from meeting these needs.

We founded LYNK Capital to provide a better experience for real estate investors and developers – one founded on decades of experience in real estate lending and investments.

Our Goals

For Our Borrowers…

  • To provide credit access to property investors and developers who are currently underserved by the traditional banking system.
  • To provide a simple, straightforward approach to underwriting that balances flexibility, timeliness, and quality.
  • To benefit the communities in which we lend by encouraging investments in, and the improvement of, local real estate.

For Our Investors…

  • To provide attractive investment options that combine consistent returns with collateral security.
  • To promote a culture of transparency that instills confidence in our portfolio and procedures.
