Forbix is a full service real estate advisory firm with offices in Sherman Oaks, California and Brandon, Mississippi. What makes Forbix unique is our ability to advise clients from the standpoint of both a lender and an investor. This multi-faceted view approach has proven to be beneficial and invaluable for our clients and sets us apart from our peers.  We have extensive knowledge of commercial and residential real estate financing and real estate investments in properties and debt instruments.

At Forbix, we understand that every person is different. We listen, evaluate and educate our clients about the product that would complement their scenario. By offering alternative ways to finance properties with streamline documentation, more people qualify for loans with Forbix Capital. We offer leading edge products with exceptional rates and customer service. Forbix was founded in 2011 by a group of seasoned real estate financiers and investors. Advising our clients through the real estate cycles and putting our client’s needs above all else has led to our continued success. In addition to being a nationwide lender,  Forbix is also a real estate investor with ownership of over 1,000 apartment units, land and commercial projects.  We have acquired and repositioned distressed properties and non-performing loans.  We currently have over 500 units under development, with an aggregate value of $250 million across various states.  Our real estate investment strategy is centered on one premise; value added deals.  This objective is achieved by strategic partnerships with experienced developers and operators across the country.

Through our vast experience in real estate investments and our in-depth knowledge as a direct lender, we offer our clients a different perspective.  We assist our clients in maximizing the returns in their existing real estate portfolios. Our team has collectively been involved in over $3 billion of debt funding. We provide permanent, bridge, construction, mezzanine and private debt financing, offering a wide array of financing products such as Agency, CMBS, and Portfolio loans.  We offer long term 35 and 40-year fixed loans for existing and construction of multifamily properties.  These two long term fixed rate products act as a hedge to the property’s valuation in a rising interest rate environment.


Our vision is to become a long term real estate partner to our clients.  Your goals with our guidance, as one vision.  Whether you are a first-time home buyer or a seasoned developer, our objective is to be able to evolve with your real estate needs, throughout your real estate evolution.  We adapt and resolve the challenges that may arise, by offering access to the full capital stack.  Our advisors have personal experience in lending, investing and developing and can offer real solutions to your objectives.


It is our mission to properly educate and advise all of our clients to the appropriate loan and investment products to achieve the clients short term and long term goals.  The first step in the process is for us to listen to what you want to achieve and offer solutions to get you there.  Thinking outside the box is a 2D obsolete advisory cliché.  Welcome to our CUBE, a 4D experience into your real estate future, encompassing residential, commercial, construction and development services, tailored to you.
