Major Loans: As a loan consultant, after a thorough review and analysis of an investment property’s operating financials, the condition of the premises, its location, sales and rental data, I identify the optimum lender with the best rate and terms for a given asset.  Most importantly and because no one likes surprises, the lender that is ultimately chosen is one that has a highly reliable track record of delivering a loan as quoted and on time.  These lenders include but are not limited to Chase Bank, Umpqua Bank formerly Sterling Bank, Union Bank, Luther Burbank Bank, Opus Bank, Hamni Bank, Wilshire State Bank, 1st Foundation Bank and Fannie Mae.


Non-Recourse Loans to Self-Directed 401k/IRA’s – Recently, we have assisted clients with substantial holdings in their Self Directed 401k/IRA’s that want to move their money away from the stock market into investment real estate by purchasing real estate with their 401k/IRA savings with institutional financing.
