Ryan Garland

CEO of Paradyme Funding Inc. 


Located in the beautiful Temecula Wine Country, Ryan J. Garland specializes in short-term commercial and residential real estate loans in California. His unique approach to financing with private capital allows speed and flexibility that traditional banking environments cannot provide. Ryan has hand-picked a strong team of individuals with extensive expertise in the real estate investment industry to compliment his diverse background.

Ryan began with four years of Civil Engineering, followed by a position working in subprime with Aegis Lending. Ryan then worked for Pelorus Equity Group where he was the face of the company for four years and their only originator. Following that he worked with Anchor Loans — the largest lender on the West Coast with a staff of 90 and $3.5B in transactions a year. Ryan moved to Legacy Private Funding where he helped build the company from the ground up. He’s also the co-founder of a luxury real estate network for which he’s successfully facilitated ground-up construction and development project funds.

By 2009, Ryan successfully closed 276 Short Sales for Leasebacks, with $33.2M deployed, maintaining a ROI of 76% for over three yrs. In February 2010, they closed 126 short sales and decided to begin private lending on fix-and-flips with his investors’ funds. From 2011-2014, Ryan was the No. 1 private funding originator in the state and 3rd in the nation. They funded more than any other company in California as an originator with their 100% Financing JV program; 1.5 years ahead of any other lender, which allowed him to launch into the luxury market. In 2012 alone, Ryan and his staff of three deployed $140M. From this extensive background, Paradyme Investment Funding was formed. He successfully raised and deployed private funds in excess of $350M in the past 5 years on 1st and 2nd Trust Deeds.
