In April 2011, my wife and I decided to change careers and do something we’ve been dreaming about for a long time. We created our business, catalyst Homes and Investments, LLC and set out to find, rehab, and sell houses. One major obstacle we ran into initially was where to get the money for the purchase and renovation. A quick search brought us to Red Dirt Lending.
Looking back, that first call to Red Dirt Lending really changed our lives. We were able to get all the information we needed to get started and we were approved for funding very quickly. There was always someone available and willing to answer all our questions, and being so pleasant to deal with, we believe their customer service is second to none.
Let’s fast forward to present day. Since 2011 we’ve purchased five houses with Red Dirt Loans and have sold four for a profit. The fifth house was put on the market yesterday. Red Dirt has been instrumental in our success, we look forward to continuing our relationship, and recommend them to anyone looking to enter the industry.

It wasn’t long ago that I believed I should pay cash for everything. I bought a house to rehab, paid cash, and thought this was the way to proceed with others flips. It turns out I was wrong. My fears about high interest rates for Hard Money Lenders disappeared when I saw that I could do so many more deals at a time, and make more money total when I leveraged my cash. Red Dirt is not only a company that has allowed me to make better profits off of my cash, but they have become wonderful friends due to their wllingness to help me make the transition. I have worked with other hard money lenders, and Red Dirt is definitely one of the best, if not the best.

As a contractor and property investor, Red Dirt Lending, LLC has been the most delightful business to deal with. When I have a question about anything, I know I can make a phone call to Sandy, Jennifer or Scott and someone will always answer the phone. If they need to research something to get the information, they always get back to me promptly.
Their professionalism and courtesy make me feel like I am the most important client they have. Sandy and Jennifer are an invaluable resource and wealth of knowledge. Doing business with Red Dirt Lending, LLC is more like a friendship than a business arrangement. They understand, as a contractor like me, that the real world isn’t a picture perfect plan and when situations arise, they are willing to help come to a fair and reasonable solution for our best interest and theirs.
I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking for an investment opportunity.
I look forward to my continued relationship with them to grow my business.

"I just want to express my gratitude for the highest level of service, professionalism and understanding provided to me by Red Dirt Lending. Sandy Helke was especially helpful along the way, as my point of contact. I kept in contact with her regarding the various issues and delays which came up on this project. Red Dirt was extremely understanding and helpful in working with me to get through this. This rehab was definitely the largest headache project in my career (after over 50 houses), but was much more tolerable with Red Dirt there assisting and understanding. Without them and their patience a headache could have turned into a nightmare situation for me. I would happily advise others to do business with Red Dirt."
