About Intrust Funding

Our Story: By Investors, For Investors

As local real estate investors, Will Heaton and James Dainard have invested in hundreds of properties in Washington. When they were just knocking on doors and doing a few deals a year, they realized that more often than not, deals would come about that needed closing fast, but because of bank regulations, it was impossible to secure funds for real estate investments through traditional means. That’s how Intrust Funding was formed: hard money lenders founded by investors, for investors.
