Cornerstone First Financial Becomes Exclusive Preferred Lender For Bloom Residential Property


WASHINGTON DC, SEPTEMBER 26, 2019 – Cornerstone First Financial is pleased to announce that the company will be the exclusive preferred lender for Bloom Residential in Washington, D.C.

Bloom Residential is a Washington, D.C. based real estate development firm with the core objective of creating seminal buildings through uncompromising dedication to design. Bloom’s Rose Condominium project is located at 4017 Davis Place, NW, Washington, D.C. and boasts eight beautifully designed condominiums in the desirable community of Glover Park in Northwest Washington. The project is unique because of the intense focus on efficient execution of luxury design combined with contemplative spatial layouts which include large bedroom units, multiple parking spaces, Porcelanosa finishes and much more.  Bloom Residential Rose Condominiums’ target completion date is Fall 2019.

Cornerstone First Financial is a Washington, D.C. based mortgage lender that provides a wide array of mortgage loan products and services.  Cornerstone First Financial President and CEO Mark Livingstone exclaims that he and his company are very excited about the new partnership with Bloom Residential.

“I am very confident that our wide array of mortgage programs will be able to help and satisfy all of Bloom’s prospective buyers and we look forward to super-serving these new homeowners,” states Mark Livingstone.

Recently entering the commercial financing arena with his own capital, Cornerstone First Financial owner Mark Livingstone made the decision to invest in the Washington, D.C. based real estate developer Madison Investments and Bloom Residential because he recognizes the need and the potential for growth within the boutique condominium development space in the nation’s capital.

Livingstone added that this venture was the perfect opportunity to expand his own investment portfolio and his company’s partnership group with Madison Investments and Bloom Residential.

“The lack of affordable housing, as well as record low-interest rates, and so many young professionals desiring to live within the beltway made this an easy decision for us to invest in this project with Madison Investments because of their proven track record of success!”
