Legacy Private Lending is the runway that launched Ryan’s career and allowed him to soar to new heights with the closing of 276 short sales for leasebacks in 2009, $140 Million deployed in 2012 alone, and a consistent 76% ROI for more than three years.

Whilst studying for his Bachelor of Science in Business Management, James McCarthy simultaneously dove into the digital advertising and marketing space, where he reached the position of Business Development Manager before graduating!
