Eric and his team worked with my family and I to place us in a position to better ourselves with our homes refinance. The process was streamlined and very quick, Eric guided us through every step with regular updates and his team was informative, knowledgable and helpful. We would recommend Northwest Private lending to anyone for their home refinance, or any of the services they offer. Very professional, honest and reliable. Highly recommend!

Due to COVID our original hard Money lender jumped ship, I searched everywhere for a new lender who could fund us FAST. We were referred to NW Private Lending days before we were due to close. Eric and his team expedited our file and was able to fund and close our file with affordable rates and no red tape. This has been by far the best lending experience I have ever had in my 14 years in Real Estate. Do not think twice if you are hesitating on choosing this team. True professionals that are ROCK STARS! Thank you so much Eric and Team. We will be back!

A reliable private lender, transparent, straightforward, no hidden clauses, no unnecessary third party involved. Unlike some other lenders who charge on private loan rate but process application like a traditional bank, NWPL did a really quick approval and closing. And the best thing is that you can always directly reach your personal customer service - the friendly GM, Eric.

All of the folks at NW Private Lending have been a dream to work with. They are not only super friendly and flexible, but are fast and efficient at what they do. I've yet to find a private lender this easy to work with. I've done two deals with them so far and it's been a pleasure both times!

This was a remarkable experience. We used NW Private Lending to help us flip a piece of property and I didn’t know what to expect going into this. Eric Larson took us under his wing and took ALL the time we needed to understand not only the process of their services but other things we should know and be aware of throughout our first project. Eric also sat with us throughout the closing process in escrow and helped us to understand all the documents we were signing. I would HIGHLY recommend this company’s service as they made us feel as though we were part of their personal family.

Northwest private lending was fantastic to work with. I was introduced to Eric Larson with about 48 hours left to complete my contracted sale. I was the purchaser. I thought this deal would probably be dead due to the fact there was not enough time to fund. Eric assured me that they could get it done within the time limit we had left on the contract. I had my doubts. They performed with outstanding speed and accuracy. The deal was completed and funded with about 12 hours left to spare. Eric and his team are wonderful to work with. They do what they say they're going to do. They are honest and forthright about the transaction. I look forward to working with them again in the future.

I met Eric through a realtor, I'm always skeptical of people in general and from my first conversation with Eric all my apprehensions were put at ease. Eric advised that he felt that he wasn't the best person to fund my loan, but in my heart he WAS! See sometimes it's not about 1 or 2 percent in savings on a loan, it's about customer service and ones word. Not only were we able to work out a loan that served us both, but I saw proffessionalism at its finest, his whole team is spectacular, they leave no stone unturned and are so efficient that I honestly was doubtful anyone could pull of what they said they could. I feel that when I call NWPL that I am not a number or a paycheck, I am a person that they work hard to serve. I know I have found a lender that has earned my buisness for as long as I am in need but more importantly I have met 3 more friends, and to me that means more to me then anything else in the world!!!!

MIH! Making It Happen! That's the first thought I have with Eric and Northwest Private Lending. We had days to close before our client lost her home that she had a 5 year lease option on. There was over $100K in equity that she was about to lose and within days we closed before the lease option expired. We were able to sell the house shortly after for a huge win and profit for our client! We are all so blessed from the professionalism, and the speed at which this happened. I look forward to referring more business your way. If you need quick money without parlor tricks, contact Northwest Private Lending. If you need help buying or selling after your flip, please contact me! Thanks again Eric!

Eric and his team did an outstanding job of not only providing a bridge loan for us, but did so without forcing us thorugh all the new government regulated banking protocols. Having worked with lenders for almost 40 years in development, working with NWPL was a pleasant surprise...they actually wanted my business. The loan is not cheap, but they got it done with minimal intrusion and saved me the cost of all up-front fees with a referral to a property insurer who was able to cut my building insurance in half. Good job Eric!

It was great working with Eric Larson and his Team at Northwest Private Lending. We needed funds to close a great deal in 5 days and they stepped up with just a phone call and explaining the deal and the property involved. At the end of the first phone call we had a “Let’s make this Deal Happen”. A few more calls on details and did I mention two of the days were a weekend and we were signing paperwork and closing a great Deal. We have used a lot of Private Money over the years but I would have to say this was quick and the Team at Northwest Private Lending was wonderful to work with.We look forward to using them in the future.

Northwest Private Lending is a pleasure to work with and always closes on time. We have closed 10+ deals with them and they are the easiest lender I have ever dealt with. When they say they will close, they will. Hard Money has recently gone to Wall Street for funding with more stipulations and many lenders close in 30-40 days with full appraisals. Eric is true hard money and he is the decision maker. I have peace of mind that we will close in time when I work with Eric.Matt GillisBridgetown Homes Inc.

I have a friend that used NW Private Lending to fund a purchase in 2018. Eric's approach is to understand the wants/needs of the client and ensure they the right business fit. Eric is extremely knowledgeable, ethical and authentic. Eric recently taught a class, The Economic Outlook, Bubbles, Currency & Inflation. He has the ability to take a complicated topic, dole it out in bite size chunks and keep your attention! I highly recommend Eric for specialized lending and education.

NW Private Lending (NWPL) helped my clients buy a home they had a lease option on that was about to run out! There was plenty of equity, and it just made sense. I had contacted another broker before contacting NWPL, and they almost lost us the property because they didn't have their stuff together. Eric with NWPL made it happen! Now my clients have over 100K in equity they may have lost, and I have a 6% listing with my own 5 star reviews because we just gave this wonderful client a the life they almost walked away from if we didn't! I get a little emotional thinking about it! We are Integrity Homes Team and I am Dave Van Nus. As a former lender myself and now a current Real Estate Professional and expert in Creative Real Estate Transactions, I fully endorse using NWPL, a local and common sense private money lender! Thank you Eric and NWPL associates!

It was my pleasure to attend a class Eric Larson taught last week about currency. Eric is an engaging story teller, clearly well-informed and he caused me to go "hmmmm" at several times during the class. It is clear that Eric is experienced and knows his stuff. His talk caused me to ask more questions and created in me a desire to know more of what he knows. If you have an opportunity to attend an event where Eric is speaking you'll be amply rewarded for the time you invest.

1st, let me say I googled hard money lenders in Portland and found Northwest private lending. When I contacted their office a associate took my information and said someone will contact you soon. Within a few hours I get a call from Eric Larson the President while he was on vacation with his family in California. That impressed me! he was great, informative listened completely, and said Oscar I will give your deal a fair look. After a few days several phone calls from Eric, we were able to put together a honest straight forward fair deal. I have been a licensed contractor in Oregon for 25 years. I have borrowed millions of dollars in hard money. I have to say this is one of the best, fair and quickest experiences I ever had with hard money. Do yourself a favor CALL THEM. I want to thank Eric, his partner and Michelle for their quick fair work. LOAN DONE!! OSCAR G. WEST COAST PROPERTIES

I can't cay enough about Eric and Northwest Lending. I tried to get a loan at two other lending companies for three months. The process took longer than expected and in the end the loan did not come through. Eric literally approved and funded the loan in two weeks! He was professional and performed exactly what he said he could do.

The first thing I would like to say is, this is the first time I've ever written a review, for anyone or anything. That being said, my position for lending was during one of the the most difficult times of my life. I felt hopeless facing what seemed to be an impossible task. Northwest Private Lending made it possible. I was referred to Eric from a client, and after a few conversations and a home visit, I began to feel hopeful again. He responded quickly, professionally, with thoughtfulness. Once trust was established, moving forward was swift and straight forward. Thank you Eric.

With a spirit of providing a helping hand and working together to help people achieve their goals you will be in good hands.

Before entrusting Eric with our retirement funds, my wife and I have invested with his father-in-law, Gary Clunas, for over thirty years. We have been transitioning our funds from Gary to Eric and were proud to be one of the first investors to entrust our funds with Northwst Private Lending. Eric tailors our loans to meet out needs and is always available to give personal updates and advise. And we would be remiss if we didn't mention the excellent service and support we also receive from secretary, nonpareil, Michelle.

Eric Larsen is above reproach as a business owner and investor. He is extremely conservative in his investments, which make us feel safe with our money. There is never any pressure to invest. He simply gives us an opportunity as loans become available. We've had several investments with him and have never been disappointed. He communicates the exact details of the investment as far as what we can expect with return on our investment, timeline, etc. He is also friendly, personable and approachable. His office manager, Michelle, is on top of every detail as well. They make a great team!

Eric went above and beyond in terms of the care he put into helping us find a loan that saved us money. Although he did not handle the loan directly, he educated us about our refinancing options and put us in contact with another mortgage lender that could provide the best possible loan at a much lower interest rate than we ever imagined!

Honestly, I could not be more satisfied with this company. They are just so easy to work with and provide fast funds for investment. They have helped me purchase properties that no other lender could finance due to my limited credit (18 years old). They also fund FAST both properties I have finianced were funded in THREE DAYS OR LESS. Who does that?!? The customer service is second to none, and Eric (NWPL's President) is always so pleasent. I am a lifelong customer, and recommend Eric and NWPL to anyone who needs untraditional funding, or just fast funding in general . So grateful !!!

I was referred to Eric Larson by my real estate agent when I was faced with the challenge of cash purchases of bank owned properties. Not only was Eric prompt to answer my questions but he also became a professional that I trust for advice. NW Private Lending meets the unique needs of investors who desperately need cash to purchase distressed properties that they can fix up and later refinance. I am pleased with the shared value in rehabilitating distressed homes and neighborhoods while providing livable dwellings for individuals and families.

Hi, Everyone I asked to help me with a loan after my husband died, friends and private lenders and Banks, all had many different excuses not loan to me money. I prayed and asked God for some one who would listen to me and my plan and help me, someone with faith and trust. Eric Larson is a wonderful person. He lent me money based on knowledge, experience and information but above all FAITH AND TRUST!!! His company genuinely cares for your success as a PERSON first. And in doing so mutual trust and faith in God's plans for ourselves blossom into fulfilled needs and dreams. With the cash I am now able to do the things I need to make my plans work. Thanks to NW private lending and Sam Thwaite who helped me find them. Mahalo Nui Loa ☺👍😄🐝
