This afternoon I had a chance to visit via phone with Michel Gagne of Gagne Master Cabinetry Ltd located in Calgary, and he had some GREAT things to say about his experience with Capital Now. Check it out below!
Katie: How long have you been a client of Capital Now?
Michel: About 10 years.
Katie: In 1 word, how would you describe your experience with Capital Now?
Katie: Did you have any hesitations before partnering with Capital Now?
Michel: Actually, no! I met Gerry, we met before we did business together. He was very professional and on par with everything and he always kept his word and he’s only a phone call away. It’s like gold!
Katie: What was the turning point that got you to take action and sell your invoices to Capital Now?
Michel: It’s just the 2nd house after I started contracting. We were getting paid in 30 days and it takes 30 days to build a house and I had to go 2 months without income coming in and you still have to do payroll and work and buy supplies. It was a really good way to get cash flow and they were 100 times better than the bank. I am at where I am at today because of Capital Now!

Katie: And then what happened?
Michel: My business grew! I was like at 100k per year and grew to 250k – 300k dollars! I was able to build bigger houses and better-paying jobs. With the help of Gerry, I was able to bridge the gap easily. I was stress-free because I knew my money was there and my only part was to frame the house. I just had to do my part.
Katie: Tell me about a situation where Capital Now went out of their way to help?
Michel: The last house that I just built. I had a contract with the contractor and when I was starting to pay the first invoice he told me that it was 30 days which wasn’t what was agreed upon and I used Gerry because I needed to bridge the gap that I wasn’t expecting. But after a few days, Gerry called me back and said we checked the credit of that company and we can’t buy any more of their invoices. And I didn’t know. But what Gerry did was help me with the lawyers and he put his lawyer on the phone and he was at my side throughout the whole procedure and I got my money! Without Capital Now, I would have lost everything!

Katie: Can you think of a situation where Capital Now was difficult to deal with?
Katie: What, if anything, would you change about your experience with Capital Now?
Katie: What would you say to prospective clients of Capital Now?
Michel: Don’t hesitate. It is going to help you grow and even though it isn’t like a bank you’re going to be treated 100 times better than the bank! The service is impeccable and the money is always there when they say it will be. It’s only a phone call away. It’s true! You guys are only one call on everything!
Katie: What can we do to surprise you? What can we do, not to make this better, but to make you tell everyone about it?
Michel: I already do! I tell all my friends that if they want to invest money and if they want to place it in an RRSP or RIFF, they can. The interest rate that they pay is unmatched anywhere!
