Shante Duffy

Vice President of Operations, BIFI

Meet the woman disrupting the mortgage servicing space. Shante Duffy started her career in the servicing space nine years ago. Through her dedication, tenacity towards customer service, and self motivation, she quickly rose to the top of the organization. In 2021, realizing the servicing space was not meeting the needs of lenders, she along with Chris Seveney and another investor established a loan servicing company BIFI Loan Servicing (By Investors For Investors) where she serves as the Vice President of Operations.

Shante established BIFI to address the “pain points” caused by the industry-standard way of servicing loans. Shante takes an agile approach to serving her clients while continuously adapting to industry changes and investor needs.

When Shante is not keeping lenders compliant while increasing their bottom lines, she spends her time raising her nine-year-old son and is passionate about raising awareness for children with autism.

“I’ve invested with Chris on two of his note funds so far. He has been very informative and transparent throughout the process. Chris is also a wonderful mentor and I have learned so much from him. I look forward to many more years of investing with him and learning from him!”

David G.

“I have been thoroughly impressed with Seveney Investments. From the initial fund offering through the application process and management of the fund I’ve witnessed first class customer service, transparency and excellent communication; not to mention returns.  Chris and his team obviously know what they’re doing even in a peculiar time of note investing.  I’m already looking forward to the next fund offered by Seveney Investments.”

Ron L.

My investments with Chris have been easy for me (no drama), and I have been pleased with the returns. I currently invest with Chris and plan to do so in the future.”

David C.
