About Us

Who We Are

Five Peaks Capital is a private mortgage lender specializing in commercial transactions. We emphasize commercial as our team is comprised of experts in the field of commercial financing, with a combined level of expertise that is unmatched in the industry. Our experience spans from excelling as relationship managers, to leading commercial teams, to brokering over $2 billion in commercial deals.

With our extensive commercial banking experience, we first started doing deals for operating businesses that were secured by owner owned real estate. These were generally bridge loans for a period of 3-12 months, while awaiting a sale or traditional bank financing. As we grew, we expanded our portfolio to include all types of commercial transactions, such as land for redevelopment, investment properties, agricultural properties, and more.
Word of our services spread quickly amongst our clients and extended networks, sparking interest from business owners and real estate professionals who wanted to partake in the loans we were facilitating. To meet the increasing demand, the core team at Five Peaks Capital decided to transition away from commercial brokering and make the company official. We are now registered as an Exempt Market Dealer in British Columbia, with more than $75 Million of private mortgages in circulation, and we are continuing to expand our presence in the Fraser Valley and beyond.

Our Origins

Five Peaks Capital was born out of a need identified by our founders when they were working as commercial brokers. They found it challenging to secure private debt for commercial transactions that were secured by commercial real estate. Traditional Mortgage Investment Corporations are focused on residential mortgages, and as a result, this is where their expertise and comfort lies. 

We knew we were sending solid commercial deals to the private lenders - as brokers, we always said that we would only send deals that we would put money into ourselves. We decided to truly put that to the test, and we started lending our own money to our clients when we couldn’t find them debt elsewhere. 

We gradually decided to make lending opportunities available to third party investors.
