Private & Commercial Real Estate Lending Firm

BGI Capital is a boutique private lending firm based in Miami, Florida with immediate access to capital, allowing us to control our own funds and make same-day, in-house decisions.

Miami Private Real Estate Lending Firm

With a broad knowledge of the South Florida Real Estate market—as well as an in-depth understanding of the loan process and deal structuring—BGI Capital has a consistent reputation for delivering and closing with confidence and security.

Direct Real Estate Lending, from A to Z

Our extensive network of local, regional and national banks, conduit lenders, mortgage REITs, and private equity firms gives us a prime advantage and allows us to provide unique and competitive financing solutions.

As a relationship-driven firm, we invest time and resources in our clients, understanding their needs and challenges, and viewing each loan from their individual perspective. Working tirelessly for our clients, BGI Capital is aggressive not only in closing deals but also in developing creative, specific, and personalized solutions. Our interactions with our clients long surpass closing; as your advocates, we’re with you from A to Z.

BGI Capital’s partners have closed close to a billion dollars in commercial real estate loans.


BGI Capital is our go-to lender for all of our financing needs. They take the time to understand our customers' particular requirements and, most importantly, deliver time and time again. They know their business inside out and ensure that our agents close on our deals!
