Brokers

Brokers Are Welcome!

Yes, we work with brokers! If you have limited experience with commercial agricultural loans – No Problem! We will be happy to assist you! The underwriting and processing of commercial farm loans is different than residential loans and typical commercial loans, and many brokers may not have the experience or time to understand all the nuances of agricultural lending.

The good news is that we will support your relationship with your client while we complete the loan from application to closing. Broker compensation varies depending on the type of loan, complexity of the file and market conditions. Your fees will be paid directly through the closing. Janus Ag Finance absolutely will not contact any potential client without your consent.

Brokers are consistently pleased with our level of expertise, communications, concern for their borrowers and compensation.
