You will earn the privilege of becoming a recognized graduate by our lenders of the Commercial Capital Training Group. This will allow you to do business with our lenders and show your clients that you are an experienced, knowledgeable commercial finance professional in the industry.
One of the most important aspects of our program is that you will be able to submit transactions to lenders directly. There is no need for a middleman to take a piece of your commission. By training with us, our lenders have agreed to waive the typical 3 years’ time in business and experience qualifications for our graduates. We can’t stress enough how important that is when entering into this industry. Our lenders consist of FDIC banks, private institutions, hedge funds, life companies, private equity firms, publicly traded lenders and private investors that you will be approved to do business with. You will have the right contacts to get deals done no matter what type of credit, how small or large a business is, or what dollar amount a business is seeking. It would take somebody years and years to gain experience and to build the relationships that you will have in just 7 days.
One thing that makes our graduates so successful is the ongoing one-on-one live support and training that we provide after you graduate. Whether it’s your first week in business or three years down the road, we are always there to guide and advise you in any situation. Our trainers and founders are always a phone call away to guide or assist you in any way. You will have a dedicated support person who you will meet during training to work with you one on one after you graduate for life. After your initial training, we will continue to educate you and provide you with new cutting edge programs to further develop your financing business for no additional fees. That’s right, we work diligently in bringing you new lenders and competitive programs to offer your clients after training. We are always on the cutting edge of technology and the latest trends in the commercial finance industry, and you will be too.
Our success is solely based on your success, so we have a vested interest in making sure you succeed with your business.
We give you the very same software underwriting tools that our founder’s own direct lending companies use. This software and deal analysis program allows you to easily input data from information your client gives you and it will determine whether the deal works or not. You will be able to “spread” the financials of a business, see if a loan cash flows with the business or commercial real estate and basically pre-underwrite a transaction before it goes to a lender. This is very important as this will make your job easier and look very professional in front of your lenders. In fact, this deal analysis software we give you is the very same software most of our lenders use to determine if a deal works or not. This tool is why our graduates typically have higher approval ratios than other non CCTG brokers.
In every business it is important to have the right legal documents to run that business. Well in this business it is perhaps one of the most important things to have to ensure your business is protected. We provide you with every legal agreement and document you will ever need in running your own commercial finance company. These agreements are specifically tailored to our industry and business model. You have to protect what you learn with us and the valuable relationships you will leave with. You also have to protect and insure your fee income that you would charge in some cases. Such agreements include Client Fee Agreements, Referral Agreements, Non-Compete Agreements, Non-Circumvent Agreements, Independent Contractor Agreements, Employee Agreements etc. These are the very same agreements our own lending companies use so they have been vetted and enforced in a court of law.
We spend a better part of day talking about how to effectively grow your company with sales force when the time is right. We will show you how to do this inexpensively with a low overhead business model.
Topics covered are where to find sales agents, how to interview them, how to judge their ability to perform, how to train them, what to pay them, the agreements used, and how to manage them. You will get a proprietary blue print of how to grow this business.
We give you a customized CRM Deal Management System so you can manage and track all of your deals in one cloud based system.
This innovative technology lets you invite lender’s into your portal to view documents in a safe and secure way, while at the same time organizing your pipeline of deals. This is a great tool to find the best lender for your transactions.
You will meet over 45 “core” lenders live through our 7 day training program. These lenders will be your core lenders that make up your diverse product offering with the most competitive product offerings. But to even diversify your capabilities, we will give you access to our deal exchange platform where in addition to the 45 “core” lenders you will meet at training you will have access to over 3000 lenders that are active in this deal exchange platform. This proprietary platform and technology lets you upload your deal to a live exchange that over 3000 banks and lenders check every day and bid on. It simply allows over 3000 commercial lenders to bid on your deal so that you’re getting the best possible offer to your client.
Included in both packages is access to a third party law firm that specializes in the loan broker industry available to help advise you on any legal matters with your business. This is free of charge to you for the life of your businesses.
