Real estate investing funding

Our philosophy

At Hard Money University, we believe there’s a better way to profit from real estate investing. A way that allows you to reap all the financial rewards but not take on the extra responsibilities and risks that come with owning property.

Our mission

We’re obsessively passionate about hard money lending, and our mission is to bring the benefits of this industry to more people.

Our vision

You see, with traditional real estate investing, everyone goes after the same properties. This creates fierce competition. So it’s become increasingly difficult to find deals.

Rod Stanback

Rod was born and raised in North Philadelphia in the Richard Allen Projects. Growing up in one of the city’s most violent and drug-infested neighborhoods, Rod became a product of his environment — but real estate became his way out.


Rod has been investing in real estate since 2008, with a diverse portfolio of residential and commercial properties. His most recent acquisition is 34+ acres of land in North Carolina, which is being converted into a farm and modern campground.
