— Katie Land
I have been flipping homes since 1998. I began working with Avalon in early 2019, and have had nothing but great experiences with them. I'm currently at somewhere in the vicinity of 17 deals with Avalon so far in almost three years, with more planned soon. I've worked with a few other lenders over the years but none has come close to being as great to work with, as Avalon. Avalon is my go-to, and I highly recommend them above all other companies to every investor that I talk with!
