Reviews & Ratings

I, Rick Tobin, appeared on the cover of Creative Real Estate Magazine back in 2006 under their cover story entitled "A Creative Financier." This was one of the best-known real estate investment publications in America for more than 40 years. I also was invited to be the primary guest on multiple Creative Real Estate television and radio shows. A.D. Kessler, the owner of Creative Real Estate Magazine who was considered a top real estate educational teaching authority and highly-respected publisher nationally, called me the "most creative mortgage broker" who he personally knew. 

I used to teach many of the Creative Real Estate students and numerous other investing groups how to buy and flip properties while structuring either private money, seller-financed deals, or conventional financing options such as a contract for deed or land contract, lease-option to purchase transactions, AITDs (All-Inclusive Trust Deeds), "subject-to" purchase agreements, purchase or refinance loans up to 100% loan-to-value (LTV), and 30-year fixed rate mortgages. I've also helped many real estate licensees structure their purchase and sales transactions so that their deals closed on time in addition to funding the mortgage. 

Reviews from past clients about Rick Tobin's professional services include:

As of April 2024, Rick Tobin had a 100% perfect score rating from Upwork, the largest online employment site in the world, for my financial services work for clients around the nation over the past several years. Many of these same clients include owners of prominent Wall Street investment firms; CEOs of national Crowdfunding firms; attorneys; real estate developers; commercial property landlords; wealth advisors; real estate brokers; real estate investment clubs and coaching groups; the oldest real estate school in California; the first, or one of the earliest, online real estate school in California; and the largest real estate educational and publishing firm in America. Many times, I would provide the clients with original written content and financial funding solutions at the same time.
