Justus Property Management secured the bridge loan from CFS.

Mitch Walters, Vice President of Justus Property Management, Inc. commented, "During the transaction, everyone was thrown a few curve balls, but Capital Fund Services did a fantastic job of keeping the focus on finding a way to get the deal done. The residents, the Town of North Webster and the new owners are ecstatic with how things turned out."
