May 18, 2022 (Tampa, FL) – Lincoln James Capital, the Charlotte, North Carolina based capital markets advisory firm announced its expansion to Tampa, Florida this week. The expansion follows a period of growth and will allow the firm to better serve clients in markets across the country. The firm also operates an office in Denver, Colorado and Tampa, Florida. 

Lincoln James Capital specializes in advising clients that are seeking financing for commercial real estate investments, new developments, and redevelopment projects. In the last year, Lincoln James Capital helped clients close financing on office projects, industrial projects, and retail entertainment center developments with hotel, shopping, dining, and entertainment venues. 

“This has been an exciting time of growth for our firm. We have helped customers secure the financing they needed to grow their investments, we have added five employees to our team, we expanded into Colorado, and now we have expanded into Florida,” said Sokoni Scott, owner and managing partner of Lincoln James Capital. “Florida is experiencing tremendous economic growth and Tampa is a fantastic location that will enhance our ability to serve our customers around the country.” 

Lincoln James Capital simplifies the complex process of getting a commercial real estate loan. Many investors go directly to a bank in search of financing without much knowledge of the process and without much preparation. By doing so they do not get to evaluate all the other potential financing options available in the market. Lincoln James Capital has a broad network of lenders and can provide a variety of funding options and the ability to combine multiple types of financing. This can lead to more favorable terms for the borrower. 

“The banks and lenders have a team working in their best interest. We believe our customers should have experts working in their best interest as well,” said Scott. “When an investor is prepared to present their investment opportunity and financial package in the best possible light it gives the lender more confidence in the deal and helps the investor secure more favorable terms. When investors attempt to pursue financing on their own, they risk getting less favorable terms or even failing to close and missing out on their investment opportunity. Our goal is to keep financing flowing to help investors build businesses, create jobs, and boost the economy. We are excited to expand into Florida and provide even greater service to our customers.”
