WHAT OUR CLIENTS ARE SAYING

And it’s been a pleasure working with you and your firm over the last 3 years. These evaluations have been a godsend for the Bank.

Matt S.
Vice President, Credit Administration Manager
Fidelity Bank

I previously utilized Boxwood for commercial evaluations at my former bank. Now at WaFd Bank, we needed a consistent provider to help us in this space, and Boxwood was my obvious choice. The Boxwood team has been a great partner for us, and we appreciate the care that they take with our orders and the superior quality of reports they produce.

Justin S.
VP, Chief Appraiser
WaFd Bank

We just received your first commercial evaluation on our loan in Covina, CA. You guys hit a home run and we are thrilled! No questions, no issues…it was perfect. The evaluation was detailed, thorough, and essentially has the same content as many appraisals we have used.

Thank you again for the great service, and we look forward to engaging your firm again in the future.

Boxwood Means is a first-class outfit. Their appraisal reports are professionally prepared, the fees are competitive, and their team is fast – all of which helps our company close loans quickly and efficiently.    

Don Pelgrim
Chief Executive Officer
Wilshire Finance Partners, Inc.

As an equity lender, here at Aegis Funding we rely heavily on the valuation piece to our loans, and typically the valuation is the greatest delay in our quick close model. When we recently turned to Boxwood for property valuations on our small-balance commercial loans, it helped immensely with our backlog and added more certainty and speed to close loans. The reports are thorough and well supported with both listings, sales and even rental analysis. It certainly helps that they are also widely accepted valuations for our corporate partners. Just knowing we can count on Boxwood to deliver a high-quality, credible product most anywhere in the country is awesome.

Kip Adkins
President
Aegis Funding

At Conventus, having high quality analytical tools to help us make accurate decisions is incredibly important to our ability to close loans quickly and mitigate risk. Boxwood’s FieldSmart evaluation services exceed our standards on a few different fronts. Their tech platform is easy to use, their reports are detailed and their customer support is super responsive. We enjoy working with Boxwood and look forward to a continued partnership.

I am already a client, and I wanted to take the time to provide some feedback.

I work mostly with Lorean Gonsalves, and I just wanted you to know that working with her is an absolute delight. She is always ready to help and goes above and beyond to make sure all parties have everything that they need. Every email I have sent over the past year is responded to in a more than timely matter, which is really important for the work that I do as a reviewer.

She is always a pleasure to work with, and I'm greatly appreciative to have someone so knowledgeable and patient as my contact.
