How does it work?

Longleaf Lending originates and funds first lien real estate loans. We then offer participation opportunities in individual notes.

By investing, you’ll get paid monthly as we collect interest from the borrower.

When the borrower completes the project and either sells or refinances, we’ll return your principal so that you can invest again.
