Trust Deed Investment Specialists

“Making Your Money Make Money” is what we do best. We help investors reap the rewards of a lender in today’s real estate market by specializing in placing private capital, self-directed IRAs, and self-directed 401k-Retirement plans with investments secured by real estate. And the results? Annualized yields have ranged between 8% and 11%. We think that’s pretty good.

Private Money Lending for Real Estate Investments

We offer short term financing opportunities that enable quality borrowers to acquire, remodel, or build investment properties. Because we’re local, underwrite each financing request in house, and work directly with all involved parties, we’re able to make the lending process as quick and efficient as possible.

Traditional Real Estate Services

Toby has been involved with MGR since its inception, having worked with its founder, Victoria Relva previously in the private money lending industry. What he enjoys most about private money lending is that all stakeholders in the transactions MGR brokers have their interests aligned, with the goal being a successful project that earns an attractive return and produces a quality product.

Toby brings a diverse background in real estate and construction having experience in commercial leasing and property management, residential and commercial construction and real estate sales as a licensed California real estate broker. This skill set lends itself particularly well with the construction lending focus of MGR’s private money program. While Toby is intimately involved in the loan underwriting process for most all loans, he also continues interfacing with borrowers and investors throughout the loan term managing a highly critical function of our program for those loans that it requires, fund control. MGR and Toby keep close involvement with the 3rd party fund control company utilized to manage the disbursement of loan funds as construction is completed, assisting in monitoring progress to ensure the timely completion of construction and ultimate loan payoff.

Toby is a Central Coast native and is happy that he and his wife have been able to make a life here. After obtaining degrees in Economics as well as an MBA from out of the area, Toby appreciates what the Central Coast has to offer and has worked patiently to become a real estate investor himself in the area. When not spending time with family and friends, he enjoys putting on his tool belt to better his investments.
