Bluebird Mortgage Corporation was founded in 2010 and has been providing real estate loans for fix and flip professionals and fix and hold investors since its creation. We have funded over $4 Million in real estate loans to date and continue to grow.
In our eyes, hard money lending is more of a service-based than a product-based business, and we do everything in our power to help our customers along the way throughout their project. Being such a small company, we are able to provide a level of service to our customers that greatly exceeds that of our competition. We look at every deal we close as more of a partnership than anything else, because in this business, your success equals our success, and as avid real estate investors ourselves, we know what it takes to make a project successful. One of the biggest issues that real estate investors face over the course of a rehabilitation project concerns the matter of construction draws. If you are waiting for a portion of your loan balance to be distributed to you, then you will be unable to pay your contractors and workmen in a timely manner, which could result in workers leaving the construction site or even worse, filing a mechanics lien, all of which hinder the successful completion of your construction project. Bluebird Mortgage corporation is able to release a construction draw in as short amount of time as the SAME DAY! We are always horrified by the stories of some of our customers who talk about lenders they've used in the past who have made them wait as long as TWO WEEKS after the request to fund the draw! We know that type of service is not helpful for our customers, and it is a prime example of how we do everything in our power to distinguish Bluebird Mortgage Corporation as the premiere service-based hard money lending firm in Colorado. It is this level of service and our expertise in the real estate investment process that keeps our customers coming back time and time again.
About the Founder and President of Bluebird Mortgage:
Scott Craft grew up in Colorado and attended Colorado Academy from elementary school up through his high school graduation. He then attended Syracuse University in New York where he graduated Magna Cum Laude in 2010 from the Martin J. Whitman School of Management with a double major in business, one in Finance and one in Entrepreneurship and Emerging Enterprises.
Scott's love and passion for real estate was established during his college years. While in school, Scott returned home over the summers and spent everyday learning the real estate and hard money lending business from his dad, Charlie Craft, who has been a hard money lender and/or fix and flipper in the Denver Metro area for over 30 years. In his time attending Syracuse University, Scott also spent time interning at Pyramid Management Group, the largest privately-held shopping center development firm in the Northeast, where he learned even more about corporate real estate finance. Upon graduating from Syracuse University, Scott returned to his home state of Colorado and immediately formed Bluebird Mortgage Corporation.
Since then, Scott has been working full time as the President of Bluebird Mortgage, has obtained his real estate broker's license, has become a landlord, and has formed a couple other companies that he uses to fix and flip his own projects on the side.
