Fan or not we have all seen scenes from the show American Idol. Instead of aspiring signers we have commercial properties seeking funding. The judges in this case are Conventional , Bridge , and Hard money.
One judge like Simon is cut throat and to the point he is not here to make friends with you. The other two are open minded but still require you show talent or in this case have a good project a realistic one.
Just like in the show your deal has to shine and have that special something that just makes it pop. Like the parents and friends of the ones that get dismissed you too will make excuses as to why the judges are wrong.
One thing the judges always say to the ones that are good but just not there yet is do not give up. Lenders may turn you down now but may offer solutions to improve what ever kept you form making it work this time.
