Because we have over 35 years of real estate investment and development experience as a principal through our parent company, Hankey Investment Company, we recognize that rapid decision-making and responsiveness is imperative to the real estate entrepreneur. Our deep knowledge of California real estate helps us to understand and price risk efficiently; we often issue term sheets within 24-48 hours and fund as quickly as five days from application, enabling clients to capitalize on time-sensitive opportunities..


Our streamlined organization and discretionary capital allows us to tailor creative, outside-the-box financing solutions to meet the unique needs of each opportunity. Comprised of just two members, Hankey Capital’s nimble credit committee is actively involved in structuring every deal. Because our investors are internal Hankey Group entities, we do not require external approvals from high-net worth or institutional fund investors, giving us the flexibility to craft innovative solutions.


We cultivate long-term relationships with clients by offering superior service and reliability from initial inquiry through payoff. Many repeat borrowers utilize our financing even when a deal is a candidate for a traditional bank loan because we are easy to work with and provide certainty of execution. Hankey Capital never sells its loans and our underwriting, legal, funding, and servicing functions are all performed in-house. Our soup-to-nuts approach ensures a seamless experience, gives us maximum control over service, and keeps costs low for borrowers.
