The real estate market is directly affecting how assisted living facilities or CCRs operate, emphasizing the need for efficient, well-positioned properties. Our program allows seniors to get a large cash advance within 12 days, and then us to partner with our funding partner and them use their funds upfront to spruce up the home, getting the most money for them at this critical time, when they need to 'jump' on that call that says a unit is available.

Chip was so amazing when we were going through covid. The studio shut down for 12 weeks - I have been broadcasting live for 12 years, and he and a few other top agents hopped on zoom so we could do a recorded show to broadcast. I'll forever be in his service.
