Did you know it’s possible to make a loan to an irrevocable trust? Many people don’t know it is, and even though conventional lending firms might say they do it, they don’t truly understand and often force the borrower to take the loan out of the trust – negating the benefit. Jim O’Dea, a broker associate with Redwood Mortgage, a private money lender, has been with Redwood for over 14 years and has over 40 years of commercial real estate experience. Jim has made the irrevocable trust loan transaction a niche of sorts and, at Redwood alone, has originated and closed over $150 million in loans.

In today’s episode, Kirsten and Jim discuss why making loans to irrevocable trusts is such a difficult transaction, why it happens in the first place, how it is completed and why it is such a tremendous opportunity for families to take advantage of.
