Making Trust Deed Investment Simple, Reliable, and Transparent.

At we provide an online marketplace for Trust Deeds and other real estate-secured investments. Investors can research, pledge, buy, and sell Trust Deeds using our platform.

You may also invest in a selection of managed funds, or review periodic equity joint ventures. Our mission is to establish as the preferred online community for real estate-secured investments, whether in whole loans, fractional interests, or through managed funds. Toward this goal we built this platform to be simple, reliable, transparent, and efficient.


  1. Fractional Loans: Fractional Loans are where you invest in a portion of the loan, say 20% or 50%. This allows you to diversify your investment among multiple loans. (Qualified California Residents Only)
  2. Whole Loans: Whole loans are where you invest in the entire loan. You are the sole lender and retain 100% control over that loan.  Our loan sizes will typically range from $150,000 to $3,000,000. (Qualified California Resident Only)

RELIABLE AND TRANSPARENT is sponsored by Pacific Private Money, Inc., a leading and renowned alternative finance provider and reliable source of the finest Trust Deed and managed fund investments in Northern California. online marketplace offers investors valuable transparency with easy access to key borrower and property underwriting documents, and efficiencies such as Trust Deed availability alerts and real-time funding status. Saving time, enhancing the investment experience, and maximizing investor yield.

As an investor using, you will experience a very personalized service that utilizes investor preferences while providing up-to-the-minute deal status and 24/7 access via your computer, laptop, tablet, or mobile device.

The Trust Deeds sold on are Deeded Interests, not Platform Notes. Your Trust Deed investment is secured by a Deed of Trust recorded on the property for which the loan is made.

You or your investment entity are named on the Deed of Trust as owning whatever fractional interest you purchase, or the whole loan if you purchase 100%.

Most crowdfunding sites offer what are known as “Platform Notes” which are significantly different as they are NOT secured by a recorded Deed of Trust. With a Platform Note, your only security is the good faith and credit of the company or crowdfunding site offering the investment.

As a Trust Deed investor with, you enjoy a far more secure investment position than with a Platform Note.
