About the Founder

Rocky Butani Private Lender LinkA San Francisco native, Rocky Butani started his career in 1998 as a real estate marketing assistant and loan processor for Eagle Mortgage in San Mateo, California. From 2001 to 2003 he ventured off into the rapidly growing technology industry in Silicon Valley as a Tech Support Associate at Centerbeam, an IT out sourcing company in San Jose.

The years of real estate experience, coupled with his technology experience, was the inspiration that he needed to launch his own online business. Butani founded CarShowing.com in 2002, and he sold the thriving business in 2006 to a professional photographer who appreciated the unique business model and the aesthetics of the site.  The business is still in existence today.  He also founded RealShowing.com, a virtual tour real estate service in 2003.  In 2006 it evolved into a commercial property marketing service.

After a few years in the commercial real estate space, Butani was looking for a new direction.  While reading a commercial real estate magazine, he came across an article about private lending and was immediately intrigued.  After a year of research and connecting with a few private lenders, he found there was a need for an online resource for people to find reputable private lending companies. He launched Private Lender Link in 2010 and it’s been growing in leaps and bounds ever since.
