The broker I used at Empire was very organised and efficient.

I have been through other brokers in the past to help me expand my portfolio, but this process was by far the easiest for me and far less stressful than any other I have been through

Terry - Property Investor

Working with Empire was a real pleasure.

I needed to purchase a property from auction which I had a month to complete. My bank told me they could do this but failed to do so. After speaking to Empire they got me a bridging loan within 2 weeks which saved me from losing my deposit. I will use again and recommend anyone to try them.

Rashid - Property Investor

Having been turned away from our own bank we were introduced to Empire. I must say they are very client focused and provided us with some funding with a lender to help grow our property business

Nick - Property Developer

Thank you to the team at Empire Commercial Finance for supporting me throughout the process. I really appreciate them being at the end of the phone and helping to simplify a complex process. I'd have no hesitation in recommending the team at empire and will be using them for my future commercial property purchases
