LHJS Investments LLC Builds the Bay Area Economy

CONCORD, Calif., June 3, 2015 – As the San Francisco Bay Area continues to experience a historic real estate boom, LHJS Investments LLC gives innovative developers access to the capital they need. Recently, the firm funded a $3.3 Million spec construction loan for a residential luxury home in Mill Valley, CA. President John Simonse and Marketing Manager Beau Eckstein know that offering builders funding without red tape lets construction companies invest in the future.

“Right now, the Bay Area has the strongest real estate market in the country,” John Simonse, the President of LHJS Investments explained. “Builders need financing to help them close deals as quickly as possible. They turn to us because we’re the only Bay Area private fund that offers a custom construction loan program designed to fit the different needs of our clients.” Over the course of his real estate career, Simonse has managed multiple real estate investment funds which have financed over $1 billion in loans and investments, marking him as one of the Bay Area’s premier real estate financiers.

Beau Eckstein, the firm’s Marketing Manager, concurs. “It’s currently a very difficult and tight market out there with developers fighting over the good projects. When we can offer our clients a custom loan program, without red tape, we give them a leg up over the competition. Everyone benefits when we can get loans funded quickly without delay.”

Eckstein also points out that Simonse has an engineering background, which gives him a unique approach to real estate financing. “Working with John has been a real education for me. He sees the industry and financing with an engineer’s eyes. It enables John to quickly identify obstacles to funding a project and then creating practical solutions to getting a project financed. It’s a very analytical approach to real estate and finance.”

In a fast-paced market with large returns on investments, time matters. LHJS helps its clients get their projects financed with a streamlined loan process and 48 hour turn-around times.
