Chris successfully sourced us quick, tailored development finance for two simultaneous projects with a leading lender, and has structured several fast turn-around offers from lenders for sealed-bid scenarios, at least one of which we have won as a result.
I have known Chris since the late 1980’s. As our broker he has arranged a number of residential development loans which have helped to grow the Ardent New Homes brand and other associated companies. Chris is always available to provide general development funding advice and market intelligence.
I was recommended to Chris in May 2014 by a fellow developer. We had been badly let down by a High Street Bank and needed to source new lenders that were keen to work with us to move the business to the next level. Chris was able to arrange the immediate development finance we required and continues to advise us on all our funding requirements.
Chris Dowdeswell of CD Property Finance was introduced to me in 2006 by a mutual contact as we needed advice on how best to fund a residential scheme near Petersfield. This was a complicated acquisition but Chris, and the bank he introduced us to, understood immediately what we were trying to achieve. Chris arranged a finance facility which provided something approaching 80% of the total costs of the scheme.
I am pleased to say that we are now expanding our business and have retained Chris to fund two new schemes with others in the pipeline.
