Kevin Earnest

Business Development

Over the years I’ve been a lender, real estate investor, tech worker, banking expert, and even a sales engineer — but I’ve never been happier with my career than I am in this job, connecting lenders like you with the borrowers who need your private money. I spend all day talking to lenders and helping them build their businesses. This is the perfect position to combine all of my different areas of expertise, and I’m excited to share my knowledge with you here at PrivateLenders.com.
