PCMA Announces Continued Nationwide Expansion with the Additions of Illinois to our Lending Footprint

jason jepson - April 19, 2022

Home sales at $1MM or more increased by 40% in suburbs surrounding Chicago

Irvine, CA April 19th, 2022 – PCMA, the pioneer and leading voice in Non-Bank Private Client Lending, announces the expansion of our Private Client services to the state of Illinois – Company NMLS ID: 237710. The expansion of Private Client Lending into Illinois highlights the extraordinary growth of PCMA and the continued growth in the Illinois luxury housing market.

2021 set a luxury home sales record with the sale 3,480 homes sold for a $1MM or more in the city of Chicago and the surrounding seven counties in 2021 according to Crain’s; an increase of almost 20% from 2020. More than 100 sold for $4MM or more in 2021, more than double sales in that price category from last year.

“High Net Worth households have complicated and diverse estates, that are fueled by the economic growth in the stock market, making it no surprise to see the rapid uptick in ultra high net worth realty,” said John R. Lynch, CEO and Founder of PCMA. “At PCMA, we are honored to work with the distinguished Private Clients of Illinois, giving them access to credit services that celebrate their success without the friction of traditional lending.”

PCMA’s expansion into the Illinois’ market comes on the heels of both internal and external growth of the company. PCMA continues to experience an unprecedented growth of high-net-worth originations at a record pace in 2022 even in the face of rising interest rates.

“If you only focus on traditional mortgage channels, you will notice that luxury real estate has been mostly trading on all cash offers,” said Lynch. “Paying all cash for a luxury property is not ideal for the high net worth, so we created The Collective, a streamlined approach to asset-based lending removing the need to pay all cash, collateralize or pledge vested holdings. These bespoke flexibilities were not available to the High-Net-Worth Communities of Illinois prior to our expansion.”
