“My wife and I attended a future innkeepers conference with a very reputable bed & breakfast consulting team (highly recommend attending before purchasing an inn). After the conference, we decided that the B&B life was for us. Even though neither of us had a hospitality background, we felt that our professional and life experiences prepared us for the adventure. Our only trepidation was how we would fund the venture.”

“After a discussion with one of the consultants from the seminar, an introduction to Rick Newman and the Commercial Capital Network was made. Rick has well over 20 years in B&B and small business financing which was apparent immediately. Rick went through a pre-qualification process that ended with what we could afford along with financing options. Given his experience, he knows scores of lenders and programs tailored to individual needs. During the search for just the right inn, Rick was very helpful in determining the financial viability each property was given our finances. Once we identified the right property, Rick provided all the business plan templates and worked with us closely to develop our plan and projections. Even though Rick and his team are located several states away, they made it easy through the use of technology and frequent communication.”

“Make no mistake, financing a bed & breakfast is a tedious and sometimes frustrating process, especially for newcomers to the industry. However, Rick and his team made the process bearable and sometimes even fun. In fact, it felt like we were his only clients most of the time. His relationship with lenders across the nation is also a big plus in finding the best financing solution. The lender we ultimately chose spoke very highly of Rick’s track record and ability to package complete loan packages which made it clear he was the right choice as our financing representative. With all that in mind, we highly recommend Rick and the Commercial Capital Network and trust that they will find you the absolute best financial path to purchasing the inn of your dreams to use Rick’s phraseology.”
