How we can help you

Pinemont is not a broker but is a principal in the transaction. Pinemont can provide you with short-term funding to close transactions from 30 days to one year. Funding can be advanced immediately in amounts ranging from €350,000 to €5,000,000 on transactions in Ireland and the UK. The funds are not restricted to real estate transactions. We do require security. We are not brokers, and therefore, we can take decisions quickly.
