"RED’s experience working with the people at HUD, expertise with the program, and creativity when dealing with issues were the reasons these loans closed."

RED Mortgage Capital, the mortgage banking arm of RED CAPITAL GROUP, LLC, announced today that it closed three FHA-insured loans with the FHA 232/223(f) program for Fox Ridge Management Company, a regional assisted living company owned by Rodney Thomason. These loans resulted in long-term, low interest rate financing for three central Arkansas assisted living communities.

Fox Ridge, headquartered in Little Rock, Arkansas, provides luxury senior living for seniors who require assistance with activities of daily living. Aggregately, the communities comprise 346 licensed beds, and housing options are available for seniors who require independent living, assisted living, or memory care services.

Rodney Thomason, owner of Fox Ridge Management Company stated, “We evaluated over a dozen lenders before selecting RED and we absolutely made the right decision. Our bank loans were very complex and each property had unique issues, but RED worked intensively to find satisfactory resolutions. RED’s experience working with the people at HUD, expertise with the program, and creativity when dealing with issues were the reasons these loans closed. We plan to work with RED again in the future.”

Jason D. Smeck, Managing Director of Seniors Housing for RED CAPITAL GROUP, LLC said, “We are proud to provide long-term financing for the Fox Ridge team. Mark Tran, the lead banker, worked diligently to create structuring solutions for Mr. Thomason, and the communities are now positioned for increased cash flow as a result of the low fixed-rate financing. Mr. Thomason and the Fox Ridge team have developed beautiful communities and will continue to provide high-quality housing and care services to seniors in the Little Rock area. We look forward to their continued success.”
