About Us

LendingOne’s mission is to make the overall process of applying and receiving loans for real estate investors quicker and more reliable by focusing on three key factors.

We Only focus on Real Estate Investors loans  – It’s all we do 

Real Estate

LendingOne provides a streamlined, user-friendly online application making it faster and simpler for borrowers to receive funding to grow their real estate investment business. Our technology was created by real estate investors for real estate investors.


Customer Service

LendingOne combines their extensive real estate experience and exceptional customer service to provide a one on one experience to help clients.


Why LendingOne was created

“We set out to create a lending company that was focused on the customer experience first”

In 2014, Bill Green and Matthew Neisser founded LendingOne in response to their frustrations felt towards the banks’ disinterest in providing funding for investors and the unreliability and overly expensive reality of hard money lenders. With Mr. Green’s skills and experience in creating world-class organizations, coupled with Mr. Neisser’s background in technology and finance, LendingOne was born.  As a direct private real estate lender, LendingOne was created to focus on the customer first and foremost, with the overall goal of providing them with a faster and easier way to apply and receive approval for their loans so their real estate investments can grow.
