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 is our go-to company for commercial evaluations. We use their full range of FieldSmart reports including both the sales and sales-income approaches. Their collateral valuations are consistently thorough and reliable – and a solid value for the money.
Our footprint is west of the Rockies, and we’ve worked with a couple of commercial evaluation providers over the years. In recent times, we’ve worked most closely with Boxwood and have had good success with their products. They have a national footprint, and if the property really isn’t a good fit for an Eval, the Boxwood team has been very upfront about letting us know – rather than just completing and submitting a report that doesn’t really make much sense.
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.
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.
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.
