Expert panelist for AVLmeetup's "Funding Without Banks - A panel discussion about Funding Real Estate Without Banks." (June 14th, 2022)

Derek Robinson

Derek started his real estate journey over 19 years ago, purchasing his first property before he could legally drink, and quickly built a 6 figure real estate sales career in the middle of the recession of 2007. Derek's experience includes owning a property management company, real estate sales, fix and flips, developing raw land, raising capital, creative financing, commercial leasing, vacation rentals, long-term rentals, mobile home parks, and private lending.

Private lending has been a natural progression. Derek has the equity built from many years of buying and selling property, the knowledge of markets he invests in and the cost to buy/rehab/sell properties, and a network of qualified and experienced home flippers. While private lending is Derek's main focus, he still maintains a portfolio of long-term rentals, vacation rentals, mobile home parks, and other ventures. Additionally, he also maintains partnerships where he does fix and flip projects.

Derek lives in Asheville, NC, with his wife and young daughter. Being the parent of a young child, Derek can often be found doing what a young child would do (watching My Little Pony, listening to Taylor Swift, roller skating, etc.). The Robinsons like to use their vacation rentals at the beach and enjoy visiting new cities.
