About Our Firm

  • Gavin and LaVigne, Inc. (successor firm to Tyll & LaVigne, Inc.) was originally founded in 1981 as a boutique firm specializing in FHA insured loans for health care facilities.
  • On December 1, 2011 Tyll & LaVigne Inc. was acquired by Prudential Huntoon Paige Associates, LLC. Gavin and LaVigne, Inc. was formed by the Tyll & LaVigne Inc. employees to continue to originate FHA insured healthcare loans for Prudential Huntoon Paige.
  • Prudential Huntoon Paige is the largest FHA health care mortgagee and the largest GNMA issuer for hospital projects financed by FHA-242 financing. Its affiliate, Prudential Asset Resources, is the largest FHA hospital loan servicer.
  • Our current staff have more than 60 years of combined FHA financing experience for hospital facilities: more than any other firm in the business.
  • Since 1997 our current staff has been the investment and mortgage bankers for more than 40 FHA insured healthcare projects totaling nearly $5 billion on both a taxable and tax-exempt basis.
  • In 35 years our firm has only had one client turned down for loan insurance by FHA.
  • Our firm has never had a client default on an FHA insured mortgage that resulted in a claim on FHA mortgage insurance.
  • Our firm practices a boutique firm approach, taking only a few clients at a time so we can offer the highest level of service. Senior bankers attend the project meetings and are involved in every aspect of the financing, including selection and coordination of the architect, construction manager, environmental and feasibility consultants.
  • We offer a much broader array of services than our competitors. We become your project’s finance manager, guiding the efforts of the environmental and feasibility consultants, the architect and the contractor. We define the tasks and coordinate the efforts of the team members such that all disciplines arrive at the closing on time and in full compliance with FHA requirements.
  • The senior banker in our firm that originates your loan and understands your project will service your loan both during the construction period and for the 25 year amortization period thereafter.
