Kennedy Funding makes Englewood new U.S. HQ

Kennedy Funding will now call Englewood home. The direct private lender is entering a new stage of growth, relocating to its own freestanding headquarters at 267 S. Dean St. in the borough.

“Relocating to our own building represents a new era of expansion for Kennedy Funding,” CEO and President Kevin Wolfer said. “It is the culmination of over 35 years of hard work, growth and success.”

The move comes just as Kennedy Funding surpasses $4 billion in closed loans.

“Since Kennedy Funding opened its doors in 1987, we’ve worked hard to build a reputation as one of the fastest, responsive direct private lenders in the United States,” Wolfer said.

Over the course of nearly four decades, the leadership at Kennedy Funding has made the company a go-to name to help borrowers secure loans for deals of all sizes and types, including acquisitions and construction loans.

The firm is well known for successfully closing loans on particularly challenging deals, including land loans, workouts, bankruptcies and foreclosures, and for successfully closing bridge loans.

“When traditional lenders find ways to say no, we take great pride in finding ways to say yes to a borrower,” Wolfer said. “Our approach focuses on the merits of each deal, diving into the details that set up a project for success.”

Wolfer added that Kennedy Funding is highly regarded for its speed to closing, another major attraction for borrowers around the U.S and internationally.

“We can close a loan in as little as five days — a process that takes months at most banks,” Wolfer said. “Our borrowers don’t wait for weeks and months for an answer — we move quickly from the moment an application is received straight through closing.”
