Invest In Your Community

Join us in helping develop a sustainable local economy. We connect real estate entrepreneurs seeking flexible financing solutions with investors seeking profitable investment opportunities for their mutual benefit.


ALFIE gives you the opportunity to put your money to work in your own community -- on Main Street, not Wall Street. The ALFIE platform allows investors to invest in their local community by funding the projects of local real estate entrepreneurs who work with ALFIE for financing. This infusion of money into local economy stimulates growth in the community and creates returns for the investors and profits for the entrepreneurs, which -- when repeated -- strengthens the sustainability for our local economy.


ALFIE is a real estate collateral-based lender specializing in creative solutions for individuals looking to purchase or refinance a variety of real estate investments. At ALFIE, we recognize that traditional financing isn't always an option or may not be the right fit for your needs. You may be looking for terms a bank can't offer. You may need your money fast. You may have less-than-perfect credit.

That's why we have alternatives.

ALFIE loans are real estate collateral-based. Terms are flexible, with three months to two years for repayment. Best of all, our interest rates are competitive and you can get your money quickly so you can close quickly.

  • Loans ranging from $100,000 - $5M+
  • Term can be from 3 months to 24 months with possible renewal
  • 3 month minimum interest payment
  • Call for current interest rates
