I have to be honest, I have not had the most positive experiences using outside consultants, however, I am most grateful that we have Newbold.

Your consultant has just been a phenomenal contributor to this program. Very grateful to you and she for your support.

Servicing Conversion

“I worked with a Newbold consultant on the redesign of our Construction Lending unit. Not only did this consultant work extremely hard but her acumen to lending and process issues was second to none. The Newbold consultant understood Construction Lending better than almost my entire staff. She was able to alter her strategy and recommendations to match our business model and size of our organization. Due to her knowledge and work ethic, we were actually able to accomplish within 4 months, what would have taken me and my team 9 or 10 months to complete. I highly recommend! “
