Welcome @Ricardo Miranda and congrats on the success of your existing business!
Hope you aren't thrown into the world of spamalot or fraud-a-lot, seeking lenders. Vet them all and never send money up front. A few threads recently regarding lending scams you can easily search for.
See ya around the site!
Welcome and happy hunting.
Welcome to BP, this is a great website and resource for all types of real estate investing.
Our company is a full real estate investment operation, we buy and sale, we own rentals and we also lend money to other Real Estate Investors. Our office is in downtown Upland, very close to Pomona. Let me know when you are in the area.
I suggest you do a lot of research here, do not spend a lot of money with coaches, it would be much better to put that money to work and learn from experience.
Additionally, there are many real estate clubs out there, visit them, select your favorites and meet other investors working your area. You can find info on clubs here and also you can look at meetup.com. Networking is key to success.
Cheers! see you around...
