Silver Hill pioneered a residential-style underwriting approach for small-balance commercial loans in 2003 and has since continued to enhance its program to meet the needs of a changing and growing marketplace. "We're excited about adding gas stations to our program because they are an underserved property type in the small-balance commercial market," said Joanna Schwartz, managing director for Silver Hill. "Silver Hill's unique underwriting approach allows us to consider this and other property types that are not typically served through traditional small-commercial financing means. Our program gives mortgage brokers the opportunity to serve more borrowers by offering niche solutions to their customers." With the program enhancement now in effect, Silver Hill offers financing on gas station loans up to $1 million, with up to 75 percent loan to value.

"Regardless of recognition, we are committed to providing a great work environment at Silver Hill - one that makes employees proud to be part of our team and attracts talented people to join our growing company." Silver Hill promotes a corporate culture focused on teamwork, ongoing communication, innovation and continuous improvement. The national lender's strong commitment to training includes in-depth industry and product education through its Silver Hill University not only for new employees, but continuing throughout an employee's tenure.
