Real Estate Secured Lending

For the past forty years, DFI (through its affiliates Atlantic Financial, LLC and Diversified Financial, LLC) has been a leading private lender in the greater Boston area. We have earned a reputation as a reliable and responsive lender to investors and developers seeking to acquire, develop or refinance real estate.

We provide real estate loans that offer a wide variety of borrowers convenience and confidence that other lenders cannot deliver. As a non-regulated entity, Atlantic can creatively structure solutions to fund difficult challenges.

We provide loans to qualified borrowers that range from $200,000 to $10,000,000. Loans can be secured by First or Junior mortgages on existing or to be constructed income, for-sale developments, or land. Loan terms are typically two months to five years.

We hold all of our loans in our portfolio. This enables our experienced real estate professionals to commit to and close transactions quickly.
