Bringing real estate opportunities and private money together since 1984
A changing and often volatile economy requires a proven and experienced firm to handle clear first trust deed investments and common-sense real estate loans. Our lengthy and successful history allows us to offer solid, consistent performance, along with personalized service in the Oregon mortgage and investment market.
For the past 34 years, Investors, Borrowers and Brokers have relied on AIC to provide the finest service available. We specialize in business-purpose loans on Oregon real estate. You may hear these types of loans referred to as first trust deed investments, hard money real estate loans or private money real estate loans.
One Objective: Common-Sense Real Estate Loans and Investments
AIC was founded by Michael Welt and Marty Hall in 1984 with one simple objective in mind; To fund common-sense real estate loans. AIC was built on word-of-mouth advertising and keeping our commitments. Before receiving the opportunity to build a new commercial office building in Springfield in 2005, AIC was located in Eugene by the Valley River Center for 21 years. You can now find us at 380 Q Street, Suite 240, Springfield, OR 97477.
In 2010 Austin Walker joined the AIC team. With Marty Hall now substantially retired, you will find Austin and Mike coordinating all loan origination. When you call AIC, either Austin or Mike will guide you through the entire process. We complete all our own underwriting, site inspections and document-drawing to ensure the easiest and quickest process for our Borrowers while retaining the highest level of commitment to our Investors. AIC operates as a small team of four individuals. Austin Walker and Mike Welt work on all loan origination and underwriting as a team, while Amy LaGrander and Ciarra Christensen collectively process payments, construction draws, payoff letters, reconveyances and manage insurance. Though AIC is a small office, you can rest assured each of us will be available to answer questions and guide you through the process.
