WBP – It’s A Proven Model with Nate Trunfio

Nathan Trunfio is a real estate lending and investing expert, with a career that has spanned the entire real estate financing spectrum. He’s a real estate investor himself and is the President of DLP Direct Lending Partners, a private lender offering fix and flip, SFR new construction, rental, and multi-family bridge loans to real estate investors across 30+ states.


Nate takes pride in having expert-level real estate investment knowledge in multiple asset classes, and has financed over $1B in loans on single family and multi-family assets. In addition to leading DLP’s lending business, he’s developed a multimedia platform, Talking Loudly with Nate, which leverages his expert position to provide other investors insights into all aspects of real estate investing.


In 2017, Nate joined DLP Direct Lending Partners and has helped the company reach exponential growth. Last year, the company doubled in both revenue and loan fundings, which contributed to DLP being named as one of the Inc. 5000 fastest growing companies.


He speaks with us about constant improvement, vertical integration and potato chips.
