Having Ashdown help us navigate through this new CMHC program was invaluable. They helped make the entire process smoother, including fielding questions from the lender. They negotiated and advocated on our behalf, producing outcomes and solutions that would have been more difficult to achieve had we been negotiating on our own. Ryan was a pleasure to work with, and we felt confident having him on our side. I would not hesitate in recommending Ryan and his team to any developer that is looking for financing, CMHC or otherwise.

I can’t recommend Ashdown Capital enough. After wasting almost 2 months dealing with a major bank that over promised and under delivered it was a breath of fresh air to deal with Joe at Ashdown Capital.

Joe was completely professional and transparent throughout the process. Transparency is something I really value in business and I knew straight away that Joe was someone I could count on. He set expectations clearly and concisely and in the end under promised and over delivered.

I wished I would have bumped into Ashdown Capital well before spending valuable time and money dealing with a big bank that was never going to deliver.

Joe said he would deliver, and he did just that!!

Every entrepreneur gets a few critical “breaks” from time to time, and the ability to take advantage of those breaks changes the future trajectory of his/her company. We had one such break near the end of 2018 – our biggest order to date. Had it not been for Joe and Ashdown, we wouldn’t have been able to take advantage of this lucrative opportunity. I highly recommend Ashdown for any business looking to raise capital.

The guys at Ashdown were friendly and upfront from the start. After discussions and diligence, they came back to us with multiple interested lenders. When we were ready to proceed, they executed everything. We had a load off our plate and breathing room to continue our outreach to faith groups and non-profits- the communities that truly need the affordable burial space we are providing. A BIG thank you to Brad and Ryan!

Ashdown has become a great strategic partner to Field House and integral to the grown and success of the company. Without their help, Field House’s production capacity and business  growth would have been constrained by the challenges of cash flow. In a market where accessing growth capital from traditional ‘big banks’ is getting harder and harder, Ashdown provides the support small businesses need to get to the next level. And even better, the Ashdown team is a lot of fun to work with, they visit our business all the time and have become part of the Field House family

Brad Kiendl not only helped coordinate a completely new and better banking partnership, helping to set Novo on a stable path to greater success, but he also has subsequently become one of our most trusted advisors. Brad and his team at Ashdown bring a wealth of knowledge in Commercial finance that I believe would be an asset to any entrepreneur.

While this is often true, it’s quite the contrary when it comes to negotiating owner-user loans. First let’s distinguish the difference between owner occupied real estate and investor owned real estate loans. Investor Owned Real […]
