I'm not the kind of person who just rates people highly. My underwriter really went out of their way on this file and performed well above what was expected. As my relationship with Bridgewater Bank grows, I continue to be impressed with the support and service I get from the BDMs and underwriters.
All support and communication from the Business Development Manager and underwriting team were amazing. They were upfront, honest and always willing to help.
Bridgewater was excellent to work with - the lender kept me posted during the whole process and they came up with solutions to all challenges we had.
Recently, I had a deal fund with Bridgewater Bank. I have to say, I had a very good experience overall with both the underwriter and the BDM. They were both fantastic to work with and I will for sure send more deals to Bridgewater Bank.
My underwriter and BDM did an absolutely amazing job! This was a very important referral source with no margin for delays and with Bridgewater Bank’s help, I was able to wow the client.
