Ryan G. Wright
Entrepreneur, Real Estate Investor & Hard Money Lender
Ryan G Wright is the CEO of DoHardMoney.com. Almost 10 years ago, Ryan started investing in fix and flip properties. He soon saw that it was difficult to get funding quickly on these properties, much less from reputable and reliable sources. He saw a need and filled it: he founded Do Hard Money.com. Coming from a background of real estate investing, he understood the needs investors have. He wanted to provide a way for others to grow their real estate investing business by offering short term loans with no money down and no monthly payments. The solution was Do Hard Money, a private hard money company that offers short-term funding for real estate investors.
He began his career in real estate at 21, working in the mortgage industry. The Salt Lake Board of Realtors named him the “Real Estate Rookie of the Year” his first year in the industry. His previous real estate company won “Best of State” for the state of Utah. He was also awarded the State of Utah Young Entrepreneur award in 1996. Having completed hundreds of short sales in his career, he has first-hand experience in closing successful short sales and going through the process from a lender’s perspective.
Ryan has published three books: “The Most Powerful Secrets in Getting Short Sales Approved”, “7 Short Sale Myths and How To Overcome Them” and “How to Get All The Money You Could Ever Handle: A Real Estate Investor’s Guide To Funding Deals.”
Ryan has been a featured speaker for Bank of America, CitiMortgage, Wells Fargo, Bank of America, Inside Mortgage Finance and the ReCaptivate Conference for real estate professionals. He was recently invited to speak at The Money Show in Las Vegas and has been featured in numerous publications, including Fox Business, Realtor.com, Utah Career Guide, The Deseret News, The Salt Lake Tribune, Utah Business Magazine and Salt Lake Realtors. He was also a featured guest on K Talk 630 AM: “The Voice of Utah.”
