Hi Mark

This is indeed inspiring.

I'm guessing you've picked some of the more difficult cases to showcase here because I suspect a lot of our readers wouldn't expect these to be doable.

The fact that you can place these cases tells me two things 1) that it isn't as difficult to obtain funding as some people might think and 2) that you have some excellent contacts within the mortgage lenders based on many years of experience and trust in the quality of the performance of loans that you have presented to them in the past.
