About Us

We teach ordinary folks how to become the bank.

The Private Lender Academy was created by Keith Baker after he noticed that while there were plenty of coaches and gurus who could teach you how to find Private Lenders, nobody was teaching people how to become a Private Lender or how to stay safe.

Keith has taken lessons from his lending past, his own personal highs and lows, and compiled them into the Private Lender Academy.

Inside the PLA you will earn the knowledge and confidence to become an intelligent lender by following the same principles and processes the banks use to profit off the 11-billion-dollar mortgage market.

Designed to keep things simple and focused. Here’s what you can expect

The Mindset of a Banker

First, you will earn knowledge and confidence in yourself to ensure your success. You will kill any limiting thoughts or beliefs you may have about yourself or abilities to be successful as a PL. Then you will build a solid foundation for your Private Bank: the core values and the pillars of Private Lending. So, in the future, should you find yourself with questions, you can come back to the security of your Private Bank for guidance.

Building your Team

Great things are seldom achieved alone and success leaves clues. In Module 2 you will learn how to easily build the team of professionals that will help you become and stay a successful and profitable Private Lender, the team upon whom you will lean for advise and counsel

Finding Borrowers and Defining Your Lending Criteria

In Module 3 and even in the world of Covid-19 you will learn what type of person you want as a borrower and the lending (underwriting) criteria (terms) you will utilize in order to provide as much safety for your money as possible, while generating above average returns.

The Closing - Documents and Insurance

Module 4 takes you from the decision to lend all the way to closing. You will learn what documents that must be executed before you release the funds, as well as the insurance policies that must be in force that will help keep your money safe.

Exit Strategies

You’ll wrap up your education by learning about multiple exit strategies that are available to you regardless if the loan is in default or being paid as agreed.
