About Us

Who we are

Hawaii Lending Group is the best source for Hawaii-based hard money loans. Owned and operated by a kama’aina family, HLG has been providing funding services since 2008. Our lending knowledge and in house legal experts ensure solutions oriented loan structuring and fast transactions.

We know Hawaii. Combined, HLG’s personnel have decades of real estate funding experience in the islands. You can count on us to understand your situation and offer responsive options to your asset repositioning needs.

What we do

HLG provides a variety of bridge or transitional hard money loans built around two primary drivers: value-add opportunities and funding certainty. Value-add opportunities can present as ground-up construction, property renovation, asset repositioning, and other market driven opportunities. Funding certainty is essential in acquisitions and refinances. HLG, as a direct lender, has the staff and capital to deliver your loan fully funded and on time.


  • I worked with HLG to fund construction on a residential site in Kaimuki. The banks were moving slowly with too many requirements. HLG allowed me to use equity in two properties to get a $250K loan and keep the project on track.

  • We needed a one-year bridge loan to help us prepare our Maui condominium to be sold and to buy out partial owners. HLG quickly sourced the funds, and when some technical challenges arose, they had no trouble finding solutions.

  • I needed to renovate a rental apartment, and the banks were giving me a hard time because the property needed work and my recent credit scores weren’t perfect. HLG evaluated my request, saw how much equity I had in it, and quickly gave me the loan I needed to fix up the unit and get it earning income again.

  • We had ten days to close on an oceanfront property and our financing had fallen through. HLG worked fast and rescued the deal.
