Benefits for commercial real estate brokers
Brokers will no longer be overwhelmed by a vast array of loan programs offered by thousands of lenders. They can efficiently “comparison shop” across multiple offers and compare them side by side to conveniently assess which offer has the best suitability for their clients or requirements. The highly intuitive feature allows clients to receive only the best deals to get their loans approved.
Once brokers find their preferred lenders, they can opt to give them early access to their deals. Finance Lobby also provides exclusive access to their preferred lender, so that no other lender from the same company can quote on the deal. This ensures a smooth and healthy relationship between both parties unless other factors are involved, like a lender passing on the deal or not responding within a set time frame.
Finance Lobby‘s built-in chat feature allows brokers to contact lenders directly once a deal has been accepted, guaranteeing that all personal information and transactions are kept confidential until the best lender is selected, while allowing for direct communication to facilitate the deal. This prevents brokers from receiving unsolicited messages or irrelevant loan offers, making the whole process hugely time efficient.

Lenders will no longer need to waste so much time reviewing countless deals for various properties. Lenders who sign up on the platform are guaranteed to receive new deal requests that best fit their preferences, so that they won’t need to waste time sorting through any irrelevant offers on the platform. All the crucial details that usually make or break deals are presented upfront – this includes assets, sponsors, experience, and preferences that often make or break contracts. Lenders can also create up to four variations of their soft quotes directly on the site so that brokers can have more variations to choose from and compare it with the other similar loan packages quoted.
Created specifically for the digital age, Finance Lobby’s online platform makes it more convenient for lenders to update their profiles (much like any social media profile) whenever their business preferences change. This feature ensures that the kinds of deals visible to the lenders are always relevant to their requirements.
