A Note From Hartman
Hi! Thanks for taking the time to do your due diligence (I like you already!)
I’m Jeff, a guy originally from Detroit, who’s lovingly referred to as “Hartman!”
I still don’t know why people love to shout my name, but they do.
People come to me when they can’t figure something out internally and need a fast way to get the outcome they want, without the usual BS, endless consulting fees, and formality of working with heavy hitters.
I really do my best to listen, but I will say, when it’s time to take action, some people are a bit taken back by my delivery and approach to problem-solving.
In other words, my brain doesn’t produce fluff, it just jumps straight to the cold, hard truth of what needs to happen for your long-term success.
If you’re looking for a quick fix, a way to boost quarterly earnings or a PR stunt, you’re looking in the wrong place.
I pride myself on giving you what you NEED, not necessarily what you want to hear. Yes, it means I’m a polarizing figure, but it’s also a natural filter that has me working with people that I genuinely enjoy, and vice versa.
On a personal level, I’m a family man at heart, a devoted Husband and Father who lives peacefully in Idaho and collects Mustangs in my spare time.
I look forward to hearing what’s on your mind and seeing how I can help. It’s my passion.

I recently had the opportunity to have a lengthy meeting and discussion with Jeff about the debt markets, real estate lending and a host of other relevant finance topics.
