Don Hinton - REALTOR®
I studied real estate and received my agent license in 1976 followed by my broker license in 1978. I specialized in residential sales and income property exchanges until 1981 when I decided to expand my business experience to areas outside of real estate. I joined a consulting group that specialized in turning troubled businesses around. We would work with a business owner and its creditors to develop and then implement a mutually agreed upon business plan to repay the creditors and return the business to profitability. I then decided to take my skills to a regional bank, Imperial Bank. There I solved problems with existing commercial and real estate loans and eventually moved into the Real Estate Division. Over the next 15 years I worked as a production loan officer, Senior Credit Officer for the Real Estate Division and eventually Managed the Real Estate Division. When this bank merged with Comerica Bank I left and went to work for another smaller Regional Bank, Imperial Capital Bank. During my 27-year banking career I was involved in the origination of well over 1.5 billion of construction and bridge financing for commercial office, industrial, retail, apartments, residential tract, condominium and special purpose properties. Each loan was unique with its own set of challenges and each was specially tailored to meet the needs of the borrower and the project. I have been involved with almost every property type and have handled several transactions exceeding 30 million each. I use my experience to assist buyers and sellers with the acquisition and sale of residential and commercial properties. I am here to serve your needs and share my experience and knowledge with you. Based upon my expertise we have formed a new group, Dilbeck Commercial Real Estate Finance (DCREF), which provides professional consulting, advisory and commercial real estate loan brokerage services to our clients.
