Grow Your Business

Bringing Application to Innovation

At Innovate, we taught you the latest cutting-edge ideas. We hope you took those ideas home and started brainstorming with your team about how to implement them in your business plan. Now it’s time to take those ideas and apply them. Like a chemist who takes a dormant chemical and activates it, so too will we take Innovate and activate it to help you continue to grow your private lending business to a nationwide level. Activate brings application to innovation. We will teach you how your peers are taking innovation and applying it to their business. Expand your book of business to a nationwide level at Activate.

"Our company engages in private money real estate financing and we have used Geraci Law Firm exclusively since our inception for legal advice and loan document preparation. Their level of service and quality of loan documents are the best in the business. I simply cannot thank Nema Daghbandan enough for his guidance and accessibility which has been vital to our company's success. I have referred a number of my colleagues to Geraci Law Firm, and I would highly recommend their services to anyone."
