About Us

Barnett Capital Ltd. focuses on real estate, asset-based financing, and equipment leasing. For over 30 years, the mission of Barnett Capital has been to empower entrepreneurs to seize opportunities they cannot leverage themselves. We have been uniquely successful due to our substantial reserves of ready cash. We are a quick, certain, and nimble partner in every transaction we participate in.

And because we think like you do: instead of dwelling on what was, we focus on what could be.

Real Estate

The Barnett Capital real estate group acquires, develops and manages high-quality residential real estate throughout the Midwest and commercial properties across the country.

Properties range from single-family homes to residential three-flats to 20-unit apartment buildings, as well as more than 30 industrial properties totaling more than 3,000,000 square feet.

With substantial reserves of ready cash, Barnett Capital has earned a reputation as a quick and certain resource for owners looking to sell their real estate assets. Case in point: our targeted closing time frame is 15 to 30 days after the signing of a Letter of Intent (LOI).

We provide creative asset-based financing solutions on collateral such as real estate, machinery, and equipment nationwide in the United States and Canada.

Barnett Capital takes the time to learn the intricacies of our clients’ businesses. This knowledge gives us unmatched flexibility in the security we can take for our loans and in the advance rates we can provide. These two areas far outstrip what banks or even other alternative financing sources can provide. That’s why Barnett Capital is often a far more attractive financing source than traditional banks or other alternative financing providers.

Speed and certainty are other important benefits of starting a relationship with Barnett Capital. Our extensive cash holdings allow us to provide guaranteed execution with a targeted time-to-closing of only 15 days after the signing of a Letter Of Intent (LOI). Funding draws are also fast – often mere hours after submission.


We provide lines of credit to acquire, renovate, stabilize, and sell single-family, multi-family, and mixed-use investment properties.


We provide financing against commercial real estate collateral, including transactions such as bridge loans, distressed debt financing, note purchases, and discounted payoffs (DPOs).

Machinery & Equipment Lending

Equipment Leasing

Barnett Capital sees value where traditional lenders often do not. We make loans secured by machinery and equipment so that businesses can readily obtain funding to fuel operations or expansion.

Barnett Capital can be an essential ally for firms involved in a variety of distressed situations. We are experts at helping companies acquiring assets at a 363 bankruptcy sale, Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) sale or other distressed situation. Over the years, companies emerging from, or wishing to avoid, such distressed situations have found Barnett Capital to be a critical partner.
