Real estate investing can often be complex, especially when it comes to financing, but private money lending provides a unique, alternative route for acquiring investment properties. In comparison to conventional lending, private money lending offers advantages including faster closing times (sometimes as quickly as 7 days) and requiring bank statements/stated income only (as compared to providing a gamut of W2s or income tax documents).
Kendra Rommel, Sr. Account Executive at Civic Financial Services, has spent her career providing simplified lending solutions for her clients. As a top producer at CIVIC, Rommel recently reached a lending milestone, funding over $100 million dollars in volume since joining the private money lender in 2016. She has subsequently been inducted into CIVIC’s “Million Dollar Club,” recognizing the select few individuals who have achieved this coveted and well-deserved accolade.
Rommel attributes much of her success in the industry to hard work and investing in partnerships – working off of referrals for 23 years. Her book of business, including investors and brokers alike, has expanded so much so that she has created The Rommel Team, consisting of two additional Account Executives and a designated operations team to support continued growth.
“At the end of the day, it’s all about being a great partner,” says Rommel. “It’s what I love so much about working at CIVIC. It’s the trust and support that is available to me each and every day that enables my team to grow and why our partners trust us to be a reliable source for them.”
While $100 million is a huge milestone for Rommel, her ultimate goal is to inspire others and leave a positive mark on the world. A proud mother of two and a committed CrossFit athlete, she strives to be the best version of herself so she can continue to encourage others to do the same. With a positive, humble, and tireless attitude, she has proven this recipe for success to be true.
