“Working with Dennis is a real joy, especially in the business market I’m in–where you’re constantly dealing with overwhelmed and overworked business bankers and city officials. Dennis cuts to the chase, yet he’s an honest person who doesn’t pull any punches. Through his processes, we were able to fund a $3 million non-conforming development.

When we ventured out to do development, we had to navigate bringing investors to these projects. And not knowing the deliverables that investors are looking for, Dennis was able to work with us to help mature what our narrative was and what we’re presenting so that it was approachable and something that was fundable.”

— Jon Hartzell, Detroit Rising Development

“It was difficult last year to get a loan for construction–remodeling a gas station. The lender at my bank told me to reach out to Dennis. Dennis was excellent. He helped me a lot through the process of applying for the loan. I definitely recommend IBC. They are the best. They help a lot with the process and any questions, they will call you back right away–any problem, any email, anything. They are sharp. They are excellent. In a couple of months this place will be remodeled, thanks to IBC.”

— Hanan Amhaz, Gas Station Owner
