What we review:

  • Valuations (not always necessary)
  • Building plans and consents
  • Commercial leases
  • Sale & purchase agreements

I can’t praise the ASAP Finance team enough for their professional approach and commercial acumen. Ben and the directors have been first class to deal with. Straight up conversations, great tips on how to deal with tricky parts of the development process and then prompt attention to issues and payments. The success of our development is built off the strong backing and support from ASAP Finance.

We’ve been dealing with Parash at ASAP for a couple of years now. He’s a delight to work with and has a strong understanding of the market. The processes being followed by ASAP for development funding are one of the most customer friendly I’ve come across in the market. If you’re looking for development / project / residential funding - ASAP is strongly recommend.

I would like to say Dan is truly a life saver for one of my customer. :) It's the very busy time of the year and the funding is quite limited. Dan has been awesome helping my customer sorting out their funding that is needed early December. Offer has been done within very short period of time and my customer is so pleased and happy! Dan has gone extra mile for us, his efficiency and professionalism has exceeded our expectation, me as an Advisor and the customer both feel so happy to have him in ASAP Finance. Thank you Dan, staff like you is very hard to find, we definitely will work again in the near future! :) Regards, Maggie Ma Financial Advisor

I have used ASAP Finance for several years. I deal with Ben Friedlander directly. I can attest to his professional excellence and integrity when conducting business. He has a sound knowledge of the regulatory system in NZ, which in return adds value to my business. The service they provide is above and beyond what you expect from a Lender. I found their entire operation to be very professional. In my experience, ASAP Finance has never failed to live up to its ethos of being a true specialist in property finance.
