I am sure there is some kind of Small Business Administration equivalent, which is a good place to start. As you are in real estate, have you considered a co-op with others in your field?
Raisecapital02 has a very valid point. The capital you need, most legitimate lenders will not deal with you over the internet. There has to be considerable face to face and the paperwork could take months as business plans and contingency plans have to be reviewed and possibly reworked. You are not talking about a few thousands but millions of dollars. Beside any lender worth his or her salt will want a say in say and in some cases a stake in the business until the loan is cleared.
