Lending to Northern Californians for more than 50 years

We are private money lenders that can quickly get you through the lending process and on your way to property ownership. We work with residential, commercial and agricultural properties. We know each of our investors personally. Our investors are members of many local communities in the Northern California region, which means the interest you pay on your loan is filtered back into the region in which we all live and work.

Ken Carter, as owner and broker, sets loan terms and makes all approval decisions in-house, giving Yolo County Realty the ability to take on unique loans and devise a plan for the borrower. We have the ability to quickly review, approve, and close a deal because we utilize the expertise of our in-house staff for property walk-throughs and loan term approval. No offsite underwriting staff is utilized, which means no surprises for you.

Our process is very straightforward. Please complete the loan application form on this page and submit to us. Or if you prefer, we can complete your loan application over the phone. If necessary, we can also help you create a loan exit strategy to improve your credit, allowing you to eventually qualify for a conventional loan.

When is borrowing private money your best choice?

  • Divorce. We can assist with a loan when circumstances around divorce prevent a borrower from securing a loan.
