REIA 147 Ruben Izgelov: Everything Residential!

With over a decade in the real estate industry – acquiring, flipping, developing and financing over $500 million worth in real estate – our guest, Ruben Izgelove, has quickly become a renowned real estate expert, speaker, and guide for many professionals in the industry. The most successful time in Ruben’s career was during the 2009 financial crisis; during this time, he bought, fixed, and sold distressed properties, which showed his determination in both bullish and bearish markets. After using private money financing, he quickly saw the innovation desperately needed in the private lending space and decided to spearhead it by co-founding We Lend, LLC (a private lending platform). He is a graduate of St. John’s University and Touro School of Law, where he earned a BS in legal studies and his JD, finishing cum laude and magna cum laude.

Main Points:

  • I started my real estate journey from a very young age. We have extensive knowledge and expertise of the residential real estate industry. We have seen the market changing through many cycles. 
  • For years, we have been on the borrower’s side ourselves but then we became lenders. 
  • The gaps and inefficiencies of the market that inspired the start of We Lend. 
  • How all the above resulted in a customer-first mindset, as customer service and the journey is always the top priority.

Biography Of Ruben Izgelov:

With over a decade in the real estate industry–acquiring, flipping, developing and financing over $500 million worth in real estate, Ruben has quickly become a renowned real estate expert, speaker, and guide for many professionals in the industry. The most successful time in Ruben’s career was during the 2009 financial crisis; during this time, he bought, fixed, and sold distressed properties, which showed his determination in both bullish and bearish markets. After using private money financing himself, he quickly saw the innovation desperately needed in the private lending space and decided to spearhead it by co-founding. We Lend, LLC (a private lending platform). Ruben originally, however, started as a hard-working eight-year-old boy distributing flyers on the streets of New York, and to this day still takes that work ethic with him everywhere he goes. He is a graduate of St. John’s University and Touro School of Law, where he earned a BS in legal studies and his JD, finishing cum laude and magna cum laude.
