WHAT OUR BROKER PARTNERS HAVE TO SAY

ICS has hundreds of Broker Partners nationwide. See what our Partners have to say.

 


 

I went through a Commercial Mortgage Training company that charged me just over $100,000, providing no support once I actually started originating loans. I came to ICS, and learned more in 2-weeks than I did in 6-months. ICS is awesome, providing so much support and guidance.

Samuel S. | Miami, Florida

 


 

As a licensed realtor, I continuously come across clients that need commercial and investment property financing. Joining ICS has been great. I now not only service my clients with their real estate needs, but bring in competitive financing options through ICS.

Sarah T. | Conneaut, Ohio

 


 

I've been a residential loan officer for over a decade. For years, I would pass all my commercial and investment property loans off. Today, I still originate residential loans through my residential mortgage company, and close all my commercial deals directly through ICS, making full commission. Way better than a referral fee.
