“CLBI is AWESOME! Darrick and Shane ROCK! I have tried doing Commercial Funding with a different program and CLBI by far is the Best I have seen. Also researched other companies and CHOSE CLBI. You are in business for yourself but never by yourself.”

Otis Key, CLBI Graduate

“If you want to learn from the best, you must adopt the training of CLBI. There are over 50 years of knowledge and experience I tapped into while going through this commercial loan broker program. CLBI is truly a diamond in the ruff. If you want to learn about the how, when, where and what’s of the commercial loan brokerage industry, I recommend you contact CLBI.
Experience or no experience, (I have over 15 years of commercial loan experience myself) CLBI gets the job done. Their programs, CRM systems, direct contacts, support system, referral sources. CLBI has fine tuned the process.

I’m so happy I invested my time and money in your program. It’s a game changer!!!

Thank you.”

“Commercial Loan Broker Institute is by far the best training you can take. I contacted multiple training programs, until I found CLBI. Darrick and Shane are very Knowledgeable and professional. After taking the Virtual Academy, and Boot Camp, I am confident I have all of the knowledge and tools I need to succeed in this industry. After the training, they provide ongoing coaching and support. The process of designing the website and brand was seamless. I am excited to launch my brokerage and start closing some deals.”

“I am so glad to be apart of the CLBI family where the people are great, learning is easy, and their instructors including material excellent. Don’t spend a bunch of money on those others claiming they are the best because they spend your money on marketing their name. Be smart save more than a penny. Get smart remember what your grandma told you …..cause you see it don’t mean it’s good for ya. I made a good solid decision after doing my research so come join me I listened to grandma and on my way to greatness. Thanks CLBI!”

Dennis Lane, CLBI Graduate

“I wanted to take a moment to let you know how pleased I am at having spent the week attending in your comprehensive commercial loan broker class.

Class, being the operative word.

I’m confident that having chosen your particular program from the few others in the vertical was, without question, the right decision. I can’t imagine any better than yours – at any cost!!

I’m so anxious to begin my new business and look forward to your continued support to ensure my success.

By the way, you are correct in your assessment; age has no bearing on my future in the “biz” based on what I learned from attending. As you know, I am in my late 60’s and see no barrier to entry and nothing but opportunity for future achievement in this business sector.

The classes were professionally planned and executed. The relaxed atmosphere encouraged focus and interaction. The class materials and software systems that you’ve compiled and implemented are, to say the least, SPOT ON!

To recap, I must say, I learned more in a week of your wide-ranging program that I can remember in any other career path curriculum that I’ve ever attended.

Thank you for your patience and professionalism.”
