I am very
happy that Athas Capital saved a deal that Citadel at the last
minute wouldn't fund. To add insult to injury, after Citadel would
not fund the loan, they would not reassign the appraisal to Athas
Capital so that Athas could fund the deal and help my buyer. THANK
YOU ATHAS for coming through when your competition couldn't!
Group Inc. Is An Excellent Direct Lender! I found this wonderful,
legitimate lender through a heavy google search and out of about
15 companies, I chose this one. I really enjoyed the services
provided to me by Melonie Vincent, who is an experienced Account
Executive with 18 years plus of experience. She has an excellent
personality and we clicked together right away. By having Melonie
as my Account Executive, I felt like I Hit The Lottery! She
was very attentive, hard working, loyal and caring towards me
as her client. She made sure that I was prepared and ready to
get this loan processed in a timely manner and held my hand
throughout the Successful Process and because of her, I closed
my loan within three (3) weeks. If You are looking to refinance
your rental property, commercial property or retail property,
then you can contact Melonie V. at Athas Capital Group Inc.
loan proceeds were just wired into our account. Please thank your
team of processors and underwriters for a professional and speedy

I have been working with Marc Noddle at Athas Capital Group for
several months now, and have been much impressed by the competence
and professional manner which he has consistently exhibited and
put forth during the time we have worked together. I am grateful
for the chance to work with him.
As a Broker representing several clients and their related financing
requests….each with their own set of challenges and unique
circumstances, I have noticed that Marc carefully seeks out the
strengths and merits of each transaction, and inevitably finds
a workable, practical solution to each one of them. I am confident
that a thorough, careful review and analysis, and every consideration
has been, and is being given to each of the financing requests
that I have submitted…including the one that Marc is considering
and reviewing now, at this time.
No matter the dollar-size or specific transaction-related complications,
Marc consistently shows deep respect for the prospective Borrowers
and all parties concerned, and gives each financing request the
attention….usually, immediate attention, that each request
Along with my clients, we are quite confident that we are in good
hands with Marc.
And we are indeed looking forward to our continued association,
and look forward to successfully closing and funding each financing
opportunity with Marc and Athas Capital Group, Inc., at the earliest
we are keeping your information on file for future clients. You
and your team have been great to work with, and we would love
to have the opportunity to work together again”.

of my experience with this loan!

Thank you very much for your help on this bridge loan. I like
your company's clear rate sheets upfront, and good service, especially
your loan processer, Yvonnye, who took extra mile to answer all
my question and work out diligently to get payoff statement revised
Kevin, I appreciate your sincere and quick response. I would recommend
any one who needs this type of loan to you. You are one of the
most professional loan officers I have been working with.
Thank you Kevin. Thank you Yvonne!
Capital is by far the best lender I have ever worked with. In
these turbulent times in the loan industry, it was very comforting
to work with a lender who worked as an extension of my office
and got the job done. Their attention to detail and follow up
was unparallel to others. Bottom line my deal was promised to
be closed in two weeks and it was with a day to spare. Thank you
Broker, Los Angeles
I just wanted to take a moment and send you feedback on my experience
with your group, as I just closed my first loan with your company.
I have to be honest, when I initially started the process, I was
a bit uneasy and confused over alot of things that were initially
requested, (like the deed), but I got all the required information
for the initial underwriting approval and we got the ball rolling.
It was a very nice deal of 47% LTV, with a very strong client.
Even after the initial approval, I was not 100% sure I was going
to keep the loan with Athas, based on how I had to obtain my fees,
and a couple of other things. That is when I had the absolutely,
wonderfull experience of working with Yvonne Runyan. When I began
working solely with her, I began to feel like I was working with
a true Professional. I have been in the financing arena for over
15 years, and between corporate america and my personal businesses,
I have worked with and managed hundreds of people, (probably more
like thousands) and very, very seldom have I have the pleasure
to work with someone as stellar as Yvonne. From her guidance,
help with all the loan issues, timely response to all correspondance,
she made the process of getting the deal done, a truely great
experience. I never once felt like she was not 100% on top of
everything, and that we would not get the job done. I even had
one of my private lenders come to me with a better proposal than
Athas had, (which I would have made 2 more points on for myself,
since he only wanted 2pts for himself and Athas was charging 4pts),
but because of my experience with Yvonne, I kept the loan at Athas
and completed the process. How many people do you know, that would
pass up 5k extra solely because of the individual they were working
with. Well, Here is one person who did. With that said, and not
to ramble on, I just wanted to let you know how great of an employee
you have there in Yvonne, and because of her, and her efforts,
I had a tremendous experience with Athas Capital, and look forward
to doing much more business in the future. If you have any sort
of employee recognition for their efforts, please put Yvonne at
the top of that list, as she deserves it. Thanks....

Dean said you were in our area and stopped by to see him and the

our perspective, Athas has been great to work with...thank you.

have been in this business for over 10 years and have heard a
lot of lenders make promises to get your business but then don’t
deliver. That was not the case with Brian and Yvonne at Athas
Capital. When I emailed Brian about my commercial loan he looked
over the 1003, told me his terms and that he would close the loan,
35 days later the deal was closed. It was a pleasure to work with
Yvonne and Brian truly professionals from top to bottom. If you

I just started sending deals your way at the beginning of May
and I am totally impressed with how quickly you and Yvonne closed
my first 2 deals!
also are very thankful for the speed in closing since both clients
were under extreme time pressure. One client had spent 6 months
working to close and had 3 extensions on the short sale investment
they were buying and you closed both loans in just 2 weeks!
Brian and Yvonne are true professionals and a breath of fresh
air with all the delays and heartbreaks in traditional lending

and we all know how hard it is to close conventional and government
loans in this environment. You are my first choice for all my

Morning Athas Capital Group,
"THESE GUYS FUND NATIONWIDE DOWN TO $100K AND HAVE NO UPFRONT
FEES!!!" (what my AE said about them) OMG....THIS IS NOT
TRUE....IS IT??? (this is what I said)
I would like to thank you for closing and funding the 2 loans
that we had in CT. I just want to say to all the doubters and
haters of Athas Capital Group one thing...STOP IT!!! These guys
are legit and close LEGITIMATE DEALS!!! Send them quality hard
money loans (yes there is such a thing) and you will make money
and have your clients happy. Now I will say that their due diligence
can be a headache at times, but in this day and age after the
financial crisis, what lender's isn't. The key for them as a lender
is to plug all the holes in a deal so that when it does hit the
secondary market, it doesn't blow up like a grenade and kill our
financial system and careers for a second time. These guys care
about this stuff, because the principals lend their own capital.
As a broker submitting them deals, it is your responsibility to
due your own due diligence and underwriting before you send them
I did some research online about them, and read some pretty nasty
things that brokers said about them. But there was one difference:
the way they defended themselves and had proof to back it up.
That is something you don't see on these mortgage blog forums.
I have to admit, I was a little scared, but I knew I had a solid
deal with a solid borrower, so if these guys were the deal makers
my AE said they were, they would close these 2 loans.
Second thing is THEY ARE A REAL LENDER WITH A REAL OFFICE. My
office is in Sherman Oaks CA, which is about 10 miles from theirs
in Calabasas CA, but our firm is based on Wall Street in NYC,
so to be honest, we had never heard of them.
Let me tell you this short story, Brian at Athas had me get some
original copies of bank statements from my borrower to clear their
worries that the borrower may not have had funds to close. After
much wrangling with my submitting agent, she was able to get the
borrower to comply. Not one myself to just take someone's word
for it, I told Brian, that if I got this document, I would like
to deliver it personally, to see if these guys were really legit.
This was my first time using them, and I was very unfamiliar with
their process as it seemed at times somewhat closed off to me.
By my surprise he said, "Come on up, I will see you when
you get here..." So when I get there, these guys are in this
state of the art facility, with the logo on the walls and take
up almost 1/2 of the second floor of a gorgeous building in a
very expensive office park. That impressed me, and when I got
there, Brian himself took my documents and said he would get back
to me in the morning, which he did, clearing my loan for closing
and funding. Let me tell you, after the subprime bomb that went
off 2 years ago and in the aftermath, this doesn’t happen
As fate would have it, in a twist of events, the seller of the
properties in this transaction did not disclose some pertinent
information about the payoffs. Brian, not one to hold in his steam,
let off a lil rant, but as their professionalism would have it,
they were patient, worked with me on the problem from the seller
side, and we got the deal done and funded and yes I have been
paid. They also protect your fees on the HUD, so your borrower
cannot shaft you at the closing. I would say to any real estate
broker worth his salt in the game, to give Athas Capital Group
a try. These loans I closed were a combined $275K loan amounts
and I’m sure these guys can go much higher than that. Who
else is doing these small loan amounts, on mutli-family deals
like mine no less and get it funded and DO EVERYTHING THEY SAID
THEY WERE GONNA DO if I could deliver their stips???? I Can say,
not many. The Excalibur (my company) brand name is known in the
Northeast for closing deals and our own rigorous process of due
diligence by the agents and loan officers who use us as their
facilitator in the industry. As a wholesale and correspondent
facilitator for real estate agents and loan officers of primarily
a FHA, SBA and Fannie Mae conventional loans, we tend to turn
down Hard Money deals due to the sheisters and hucksters that
charge exorbitant fees and then disappear never to be seen again.
We didn’t want that on our conscious or get sued for liability.
But since we have been referred to Athas, these guys have proven
that there is at least ONE private money funder in the game that
puts the money where the deals are.
Go check them out in the Scotsman Guide, in the back of the Commercial
and Residential sections under hard money. You will be glad you
did. But I will tell you this, DO NOT SEND THEM A S****Y DEAL
though and expect them to fund it, get denied and badmouth them
online. Apparently some brokers have gotten into some legal hot
water over this and their lawyers are pretty protective of their
brand. So save yourself the trouble and due your own due diligence
before you send over the deal. Their process may frustrate you
at times, but if you know this game, and have quality deals in
the hard money sector, you will be pleased and close your deals.
Thanks Brian, Yvonne, and Athas for being people and a company
of your word. I don’t get a lot of hard money requests,
but when I do, you will be THE ONLY call.

Refinance of 7798 Foothill Blvd, Tujunga, CA 91042
This note will serve to confirm that I closed a loan with Athas
Capital to refinance the above property. The borrower had a middle
score of 535 and two mortgage lates. Athas Capital was able to
underwrite this loan based on a 50% loan to value and the cash
flow generated from the rental income. The fact that the borrower
was going to use the bulk of the cash out to pay down his revolving
debt was a plus to Athas Capital. The loan closed in 4 weeks.
Our processor Yvonne Runyan is very professional and kept me posted
as she processed the loan dealing with the borrower directly.
This is my first closing with Athas Capital and I look forward
to closing many more deals with them.
any questions, feel free to contact me.

When the file was first presented to Athas Capital Group our client
had a credit score in the low 600’s when the credit was

in excess of 110 points and they were still able to complete the
transaction for us and make our client request complete.

can't say enough good things about Athas Capital Group. They exceeded
my expectation in every way. They also supplied my borrow with the
best hard money loan out there especially when it was a 1.5 million
dollar loan. The rates and points actually beat some banks. They
closed the loan fast and did what they said they were going to do
which is hard to find now days.
Thanks Athas I have more loans coming.
Just wanted to express my appreciation and admiration for the
work you have performed relative to my recent $4,000,000.00 construction
completion loan request. It was truly one of the most challenging
loan requests that I’ve worked on in my 20 years of being
in this business so for your company to hang in there and make
this transaction a success it says a lot about your ability and
determination as individuals and as a company. I look forward
to working with you for many years and funding many transactions
with you during that time. Of course, I will venture to say that
none of these future transactions will be as difficult as the
recent one you just funded!

I hope all is well. I sent you a message last Thursday to thank
you, not sure if you received it. Nevertheless, I would take this
opportunity to thank you again. I am very greatly to you and your
company for granting me this opportunity to establish myself further
and you have been a great person to talk to and work with. Since
I do not have to check my e-mails as often as I used to now that
our loan agreement is completed, I am now retrieving your e-mail.
I will keep in touch, especially if i have any questions. Have
a good evening and all the best.
Douglas needed immediate response and only had 30 days to complete
requirements for his final settlement of his pending divorce.
I call Athas Capital and spoke with Brian and then Kevin O’Shaughnessy
and got a quick response of what was needed in order to comply
with Mr Douglas' needs. Every approach to Mr. Douglas was professional
and courtesy and gave him comfort in his transaction and borrowing
private money. Just under 2 weeks he had his documents and the
loan was funded and money in his hands. All of his requested transaction
went quick. Thank you Athas Capital for completing a promise in
a timely manner.

Damn, if I could only get them to do something about changing

old but they sure know how to get your loan funded.

our firms put together are complex and frequently fragile. For
you and Athas to have achieved such a high batting average is

interests of your borrowers. Few in this industry have the sense
of fiduciary obligation that you do. Your clients have been very

wanted to take a moment and thank Athas for a fantastic job on the
Oakland loan we closed with your firm earlier this week. During
the loan process, Athas was professional, efficient and communicative,
and we got to closing even faster than expected. Perhaps most importantly,
Athas showed some real flexibility and willingness to problem-solve
when a couple of issues arose during underwriting that had not been
predicted. At a time when so many people claim to be lending and
are not, it is great to see a lender actually deliver on what they
promise. Nicely done.
