"I have had the pleasure to work with Geoff on a number of transactions over the past 7 years. He has been able to produce the best lending options and provide solutions for any circumstance. He is someone you are proud to call a friend and a colleague. Geoff displays a great sense of morals, professionalism and has a constant pulse on the current lending market. His years of experience and knowledge enable any client to be in a position for success."
Tim Bulman ~ Investor/NFL Retired
"I started financing NNN deals with Geoffrey in 2007. Since then, we have closed nearly $100 million together. Seven years later, the bank’s delinquency rate on that $100 million is 0%. Making him by far my most trusted, loyal and #1 mortgage banking client. He’s a true commercial real estate professional and more importantly, a true friend."
Sean Keane ~ Banker/First Savings Bank
"Geoffrey and his team are very dedicated to their clients, they go above and beyond to make sure every detail of the transaction is taken care of. We were on a very tight timeline and Geoff said he could make it happen, he kept his word and we closed exactly when he promised. In a world full of brokers who promise to “take care of you”, Geoff and CBRE truly do! I have closed several loans with Geoffrey and will continue to. A MAN OF HIS WORD!"
Craig Menin ~ Investor / Developer
"Geoff and his team were able to efficiently secure debt for my client on a challenging deal. Without their knowledge and connections within the lending community, the deal wouldn’t have happened. True professionals that add value."
