Ryan Wright – Entrepreneur, Real Estate Investor & Hard Money Lender
Ryan G Wright is the CEO of DoHardMoney.com. Almost 10 years ago, Ryan started investing in fix and flip properties. He soon saw that it was difficult to get funding quickly on these properties, much less from reputable and reliable sources. He saw a need and filled it: he founded Do Hard Money.com. Coming from a background of real estate investing, he understood the needs investors have. He wanted to provide a way for others to grow their real estate investing business by offering short term loans with no money down and no monthly payments. The solution was Do Hard Money, a private hard money company that offers short-term funding for real estate investors.
He began his career in real estate at 21, working in the mortgage industry. The Salt Lake Board of Realtors named him the “Real Estate Rookie of the Year” his first year in the industry. His previous real estate company won “Best of State” for the state of Utah. He was also awarded the State of Utah Young Entrepreneur award in 1996. Having completed hundreds of short sales in his career, he has first-hand experience in closing successful short sales and going through the process from a lender’s perspective.
