Steve Bond and Trius Lending Partners’ money is as good as gold! The sheer privilege of doing deals with Steve has been a true pleasure. Steve Bond and Trius Lending is a true “POWER PARTNER” of ours. Their knowledge of the market place is second to none. Their rates are just as competitive as any other lender in the game. Plus, they have our backs through the complete lending process from start to finish. I rely on them as an advisor who always has our backs.

I have worked with Steve Bond (and Trius Lending Partners) on three projects and found him to be honest, trustworthy, and professional. Steve is a good business partner with significant knowledge in the private lending industry. He has a sharp mind to be able to evaluate projects and acts as a kind of reality check for me in my business. Not only is Steve easy to work with, but always a pleasure. I would highly recommend him to anyone considering a project they are in need of funding.

You know, applying for a loan has never been an enjoyable process for us. I can think of a million other things we’d rather do. But working with you, Steve, made it so much easier. You didn’t constantly nag us for document after document after document and then only to tell us that we didn’t qualify for a certain amount. Been there; done that!! Thanks for having the smarts to have known what we qualified for in short order. We really appreciated that. Getting the loan for our vacation home really made a positive difference in our lifestyle!

As a Real Estate Attorney, I can without hesitation say that Steve Bond and Trius Lending Partners are truly exceptional. A client is more than just another potential loan. Steve takes personal pride in getting to know his clients on a personal and business level which inevitably provides them with the necessary tools to become successful in their Real Estate investments. I have known Steve personally and professionally for over 20 years and I repeatedly work with the same clients of his, a testament to his creation of lasting business relationships. Steve's knowledge and years of experience undoubtedly will serve anyone who is looking for the guidance to navigate them through the lending process to the closing table.

I have been working with Trius Lending Partners for several years and they have funded over 10 deals for my business. Thanks to Steve and team, I could not ask for a better experience with respect to performance, communication, timeliness, and integrity. Trius Lending has been and will continue to be a vital partner in creating success for my business. I wish the rest of my supply chain and partners were as efficient and performed as well as the Trius team.


I can't say enough good things about everyone at Trius Lending Partners. When they say "Partner," they ensure that the opportunity is a sound and profitable one for all involved and, if there is an inkling that it is not, they will not support the opportunity for all the right reasons, which I highly respect. The last thing Trius Lending Partners want is for you to fail. There have been a few properties that the best answer is to not "do the deal." I appreciate their expertise, support, and as a result, Trius Lending Partners has become my only (and BEST!) lender.

Steve and the entire Trius Lending team are worth their weight in gold. They are committed to your success and are in it for the long haul. Their experience in all areas of the investment process is unparalleled. From underwriting, construction and resale. They know the market, they understand the product. Concierge Investing at its best!

Triuslending along with Steve Bond are a team like no others. There is no such thing as a bad loan with this group of professionals Their word is golden and payment schedules are ALWAYS on time. You can always expect a return call within hours, not days.

On a 5 star rating i give them 6.

I have been doing business with Steve and Trius Lending Partners for some years and he will get things done that most lenders can't come close to. There seem to be a lot of people in the lending business trying to lure borrowers in never intending to deliver what they advertise. If Steve tells you he will get you the money at a certain rate and within a certain time frame (sometimes very short time frames), you can take that to the Settlement Table !!

I have done business with Steve Bond for over 20 years. He operates his business with extreme expertise, and integrity. As an investor, I have had a very successful working relationship with Truis Lenders. I highly recommend Truis Lending Partners.

David and Steve Bond have been knowledgable and willing to give advice/input on any number of questions throughout the lending process. They give the time, attention, and experience necessary for developing a project. It has been a personalized process with a focus on growing a sustainable relationship. Highly recommended.

As a Hard Money Lender, Trius is as good as it gets. Closing time, Payments, Experience, Knowledge of Market, I could go on and on! Steve makes you feel like you're his only customer with his attention through every step of the Transaction. I look forward to dealing with Trius for many years.

Steve and David Bond have been a pure pleasure to work with. I am a new investor working on my third property and they have been with me all along the way! Knowing that there are two additional experienced people who have my back is worth it's weight in gold! I plan to have a long rewarding relationship with the Bond's and Trius Lending Partners!
