Private Mortgage Fund. One Investor...  One Decision...

Biography

For the past six years I've been connecting CRE people and helping them to make and maintain relationships. I help our clients leverage technology to amplify their existing marketing efforts & to grow their real estate businesses & relationships. I enjoy speaking at CRE conferences, & I'm a passionate technologist.

My real estate experience began in 1994 working for Koss Financial Corp. as a commercial mortgage broker.  I'm not a commercial mortgage broker anymore, now I connect borrowers, mortgage bankers, brokers, and lenders to get more loan requests funded faster. 

Michael Koss & I assembled our awesome team to build the premier online resource for connect people seeking CRE financing with matching debt & equity sources.

Koss REsource connects CRE people with:  • real estate loans  • investors  • lenders  • mortgage bankers  • mortgage brokers  • full service commercial real estate brokerage professionals  • institutional lenders  • private money lenders  • hard money lenders  • other real estate financing (equity, mezz)  • networking opportunities  • conferences & events

I'm active in the Real Estate & Construction Division of the Jewish Federation & I support several commercial real estate associations including:  • CMA  • CMBA  • ICSC  • MBa  • NAIOP, The Commercial Real Estate Development Association  • ULI

I love "self-powered" wheeled sports, the beach/ocean, swimming, downhill activities (with or without snow), & making stuff with Ocean & Lennon in our workshop.

Quotes: “As the cost of information approaches zero, the world tends to get better.”

"My proudest accomplishment in our business is the team I helped assemble, whom I have the pleasure of working with every day."

We built the kossresource.com exclusive network for commercial real estate people so they can connect without the "overhead" / "noise" often associated with other "open" / "mass audience" networks. :)
