Traverse Fournier, Real Estate Lending Advisor

Traverse Fournier, Maine Street Capital's Principal, has worked for over 15 years as a real estate lending adviser serving clients with their financing needs. He started his lending career as a commercial lender at a local bank in Maine. Most recently, Traverse originated commercial loans for approximately 10 years within the Mid-Atlantic up through the Northeast, for one of the Nation's largest multifamily lenders, based in NYC. Having originated and closed over $1 Billion in financing throughout the country within portfolio and capital market executions, Traverse's experiences bring an intelligent and honest view to lending. Traverse is currently a Director on the Board of cPort Credit Union in Portland, ME. He also is a member on the impact investing committee for the Brick and Beam Society, a philanthropic organization dedicated to education and childhood poverty in the greater Portland area.

Traverse obtained a BS in Business Administration with a concentration on Finance from the University of Maine in Orono. Traverse lives in Yarmouth with his wife Sharon and his two children: Quinn and Soleil. The Fournier's enjoy lake time, exploring a trail, finding a new spot in our beautiful state, or traveling somewhere warm in the winter.


Traverse founded MSC to fight for the borrower, and be their advocate. MSC will never receive compensation from a lender to send a deal to them without the borrower's knowledge. This is common in the industry, and creates misalignment.

The relationships Traverse creates with clients if more of a partnership than a third party arrangement. Traverse is often been referred to as "part of the team".

MSC is meeting with, speaking with and researching where lenders are hot and where they are not at all times. Understanding who is most aggressive with the type of loan request the client has is top priority. Without a doubt MSC's fee pales in comparison to the savings the client will earn over the term of the loan.


We will work with lenders that are in our client's best interest, not our own. Creating that partnership and alignment with our clients is rule number one.
