Niles, Ill.-based Summit Valuations LLC, a full-service valuation company offering nationwide real estate valuations, confirms it is now a member of the American Association of Private Lenders (AAPL), a group that provides real estate investors with online education, networking and industry information.
The AAPL gives members access to professionals and information to help them create better deals, the organization says. It partners with many in the private lending industry to provide thought leadership and trend analysis.
“Private lenders of all sizes know that real estate can be a lucrative investment, but these lenders need a source of good industry information to guide their efforts,” says Summit Valuations President Ron Ahlensdorf Jr.
“This organization is dedicated to providing support to entrepreneurs who see the potential in the real estate market and desire to provide liquidity. Since we provide professional real estate valuation services to originators, loan servicers and investors throughout the market, this is a good fit for us,” he continues.
Members of the AAPL include attorneys, accountants and loan servicers, in addition to private lenders and others.
Chrissey Breault, director of marketing and member services for the AAPL, says that the organization is “always seeking out industry experts who can shed light on the events impacting the real estate market” to benefit its members.
