Ryan Garland

Chief Executive Officer

Ryan Garland’s unparalleled ability to understand the Real Estate market, and to consequentially shift his strategic thinking is the very foundation on which he has built his stellar career.

As an accomplished Civil Engineer, Ryan went on to work with Aegis Lending, a subprime lender, with the Pelorus Equity Group as the only originator and face of the company for four years, and subsequently with Anchor loans, the largest lender on the West Coast with a staff of 90 professionals and $3.5 Billion in annual transactions. Legacy Private Lending is the runway which 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.

With a unique approach to financing, and the use of private capital for a velocity and flexibility unattainable by traditional banking, Paradyme has funded over 1000 projects, in excess of $1.5 Billion since its inception in 2014.

With more than a dozen projects in its pipeline at any given time, as the only Private Capital firm in the Inland Empire, and with recession resistant market ventures such as Senior Living communities, hospitality and commercial projects, Paradyme has become one of the leaders in the Real Estate funding and investment industries. Every project undertaken by Paradyme is implemented as a joint venture with developers, thus supporting Paradyme’s fundamental principles of integrity, transparency and exceptional client relations.
