Triumph! I just had to take the time to thank 1st Bridge for the way it has come through on another loan. Aside from the professional and courteous manner... I mostly respect your knowledge and creativity on making these loans happen. You are straightforward, honest and don't make promises you can't keep. You respect my time and don't waste it with idle promises. I look forward to working with you on many of my various projects. Thanks again!
