Direct Lender for Investment Real Estate Nationwide

Purchase | Refinance | Fix & Flip | Value Add | Construction

Rodeo Lending provides more practical and more flexible alternative financing options to those that don’t fit into the conventional banking system or can’t wait for its painfully slow funding process. We fund commercial and residential investment properties. In addition to core commercial property types, we consider hotels, office buildings, motels, big box retail, healthcare, assisted living facilities, infill land and more.

Rodeo was founded by business entrepreneurs with over 60 years of collective experience in conventional residential and commercial loan experience. We operate at the leading edge of the real estate industry but with a conservative and diligent approach to each of our ventures. Rodeo’s founders, Gregg Bernstein and Richard Katz, had vast experience as private investors and lenders in the Los Angeles area. Both had a network of investors that helped launch our first private mortgage fund in California. We have since grown to be a nationwide lender with a variety of creative loan programs. Our office is located in Brentwood, Los Angeles. We have loan officers located in various parts of the country.
