My name is Chris French and I am the owner of Tidewater Investment Finance, LLC.
I received my Mechanical Engineering degree from Old Dominion in Norfolk. I recently retired from Military Sealift Command where I worked as a Principal Port Engineer. I have been a licensed Real Estate Agent in Hampton Roads for 30 years, working mostly with friends and a few fellow investors. I have been involved in numerous fix and flip and fix and hold deals over the years.
Tidewater Investment Finance is a small Private Lending/Hard Money firm. I work with local investors to evaluate each project. I only need to place a limited number of loans and I am looking forward to working closely with investors interested in developing a win-win relationship.
Despite what you may see in many real estate lending websites, each borrower and loan is different based on your property and personal circumstances. Be careful providing property details and personal information online, expecting to get an instant approval for rates “as low as” or terms “as long as”.
I will not forward your inquiry to other lenders or brokers, I will not sell or share your contact or personal information, project details, and I won’t steal your deal.
If you would prefer to work face to face with someone from the community who takes a personal interest in your success, you should give me the opportunity to earn your business.
