Client Testimonials, 27 Feb 2015 [cached]
The other loans we've previously closed with Athas Capital were relatively less challenging than this one, but you and your team, including Brian O'Shaughnessy, have earned my praises and my future business because of my experience with this loan!
Many thanks to Yvonne, Brian, and you for making all this happen.
Many thanks to Yvonne, Brian, and you for making all this happen.
I submitted the loan and within minutes I received a phone call from the owners Kevin and Brian.
Hey Brian and Marc - I'd meant to send you a quick note earlier in the year, forgot and remembered again when I got my 1098 from you.
Brian is very lucky to have you on this team.
Thank you Brian. Your service has been incredible. We are sending you more loans for sure.
Attn: Brian O'Shaughnessy
Brian and Yvonne were very professional, proactive and stuck with this file even when it looked like it was going sideways.
Brian closed the deal in an efficient and expedient manner and we look forward to working with Athas again on our next deal."
"Brian O'Shaughnessy is an original "mentor" of mine; originally met at Title West. I would not hesitate ever in highley reccomending a true professional with the greatest back room set up in our industry . You are only as good as the people behind you and Brian ensures success because he has great 'model' and platform in which you can succeed and attain personal growth. He is a fun person to work with as well. Things happen for the better when Brian is around."
That was not the case with Brian and Yvonne at Athas Capital.
When I emailed Brian about my commercial loan he looked over the 1003, told me his terms and that he would close the loan, 35 days later the deal was closed. It was a pleasure to work with Yvonne and Brian truly professionals from top to bottom.
Athas Capital, Brian and Yvonne are true professionals and a breath of fresh air with all the delays and heartbreaks in traditional lending and hard money middlemen.
Let me tell you this short story, Brian at Athas had me get some original copies of bank statements from my borrower to clear their worries that the borrower may not have had funds to close. After much wrangling with my submitting agent, she was able to get the borrower to comply. Not one myself to just take someone's word for it, I told Brian, that if I got this document, I would like to deliver it personally, to see if these guys were really legit. This was my first time using them, and I was very unfamiliar with their process as it seemed at times somewhat closed off to me. By my surprise he said, "Come on up, I will see you when you get here..." So when I get there, these guys are in this state of the art facility, with the logo on the walls and take up almost 1/2 of the second floor of a gorgeous building in a very expensive office park. That impressed me, and when I got there, Brian himself took my documents and said he would get back to me in the morning, which he did, clearing my loan for closing and funding. Let me tell you, after the subprime bomb that went off 2 years ago and in the aftermath, this doesn't happen anymore.
As fate would have it, in a twist of events, the seller of the properties in this transaction did not disclose some pertinent information about the payoffs. Brian, not one to hold in his steam, let off a lil rant, but as their professionalism would have it, they were patient, worked with me on the problem from the seller side, and we got the deal done and funded and yes I have been paid.
Mr. Brian O'Shaughnessy Athas Capital Group
Mr. O'Shaughnessy,
It is with great pleasure that Options 4 you Financial Services Inc. is happy to recommend Athas Capital Group for a quick funding and closing of our loan.
Yvonne Runyan and Mr. O'Shaughnessy were able to complete this transaction in the most expedient way allowable by current regulations.
I call Athas Capital and spoke with Brian and then Kevin O'Shaughnessy and got a quick response of what was needed in order to comply with Mr Douglas' needs.
I'll tell Brian and Kevin you provided excellent service throughout.

"We've done enough loans to prove to us that it's a product we're going to continue to grow," said Brian O'Shaughnessy, head of Athas Capital Group in Calabasas, which began making subprime loans nine months ago.
Athas Capital offers mortgages at an interest rate of 9.75 percent for borrowers with a credit score of 550 to 599 and who can put 30 percent down, O'Shaughnessy said. He said all borrowers have been on time with their payments so far.
"The word subprime in a lot of people's minds is dirty, but the product today is much different, much safer," said O'Shaughnessy.
