target real estate investors
who, since 2008, have
been largely ignored by the banks. The private lending industry has
seen tremendous growth over the last five years.
A dedication to authenticity and transparency are key for success in
this industry. We’re committed to operating in a very friendly, open-book manner and it comes across in the way we communicate.
What is your competitive edge?
Because we have advertised and marketed our loan product very
aggressively to real estate investors over the years, we enjoy a constant
flow of very high quality loan applications. This makes our investors
very happy, as they are attracted to our conservatively underwritten
loan products, which are made to surprisingly well-qualified borrowers.
What makes you excel at what you do?
Real estate is the only career I have ever had. And my father and his
brother were both builders in the Bay Area. When it comes to quickly
assessing value and viability in a proposed real estate transaction, I
think we clearly have an advantage.
Five years from now, what changes will your business experience?
I believe the Fed is likely to keep interest rates low for a few years
to come. That presents a challenge for growing and earning from
your retirement savings. I believe mortgage-backed investments will
continue to grow in popularity, just as they have in the last five years.

What is your competitive edge?
While offering our patients the latest technologies is a key strength,
Which product or service
being locally owned and operated is also important. We are tied to
the community and plan
to be here for the long
term. I believe a number
of competitors have come
and gone because they are
not vested in Marin like we
are. In addition, we employ
highly trained practitioners
with years of experience in

That is hard to answer
as there a number of
different modalities that are targeted at different conditions. However,
I would have to say the Fraxel is one of my favorites as it delivers very
impressive results consistently and for a broad array of skin conditions.
From acne scars to sun damage, the Fraxel is a wonderful device.
