Our Story

Our company began with Peak Properties, LLC, a professional real estate investment company that specializes in buying and selling properties from pre-foreclosures, bank-owned (REOs), estate sales, trusts, and distressed situations.

We have been in the real estate and construction industry for over 30 years, with a successful record in new and renovated residential and commercial projects. We continue to invest in our own properties as well as joint ventures with other real estate investors. Our projects have included purchasing and renovating multifamily houses, co-op and condo apartments, building new homes and renovating older ones, modular construction, retail construction, and commercial space renovation.

Enter Peak Private Lending

Peak Private Lending was formed in 2002 as we began lending capital to other real estate investors. Thanks to our extensive knowledge and experience in the quick turn distressed real estate market, we quickly became a prime funding source for investors–especially those who do not qualify for loans through the traditional application process from other hard money lenders. Our large real estate network, community presence, and the growing fix & flip, rehab, and rental property markets have contributed to Peak Private Lending becoming a major player in the New Jersey private hard money lending business. We know exactly how to structure lending deals that other lenders aren’t able to, and provide real estate capital when other hard money lenders won’t.
