Leo became a real-estate agent in 2011 and then a mortgage loan officer in 2013 and at the same time became interested in private lending. In 2015, Leo and his partner Geoff, founded South Bend 7, a private equity real-estate fund. The goal was to find great deals on cash flowing properties, pay cash for them using no leverage and create residual income. Like a great chess match, Leo enjoys the thrill and strategy of finding properties that fit the investment criteria set by the fund as well as tracking economic trends in both the local and global markets. He spends much of his time traveling, looking at properties around the country and attending high-end networking events in California. Leo also sits on the board of advisors for 4020 Coin Cryptocurrency and works with. MineDawg, a cryptocurrency mining and blockchain technology company offering consultation and analysis.
