Noted Financial offers private lending opportunities with security backed by founder Sándor Lau’s track record of success in notes and real estate. We are based in Portland, Oregon, but you don’t have to be nearby to work with us.  We have clients throughout the United States.

Sándor Lau began investing in US residential real estate in 2009 and has owned and managed properties in Oregon, California, Missouri, and Michigan. By 2013 he’d learned that being a loanlord beats being a landlord. Sándor found his niche investing in defaulted second mortgages at steep discounts and finding creative and affordable ways for homeowners to keep their homes while creating returns for private investors to beat the market.

Now, Sándor is a frequent speaker at conferences and public events, educating investors on how to be the bank and why second mortgages come first. He is also a contributor to the Paper Source Journal and manages a portfolio of over 100 loans in over 30 states.

Investing in non-performing mortgage loans at discounts is like investing in stock options with asymmetric risk. We have the leveraged opportunity to participate in the upside of real estate, with only a small exposure to downside risk.

Watch Sándor’s investing videos on YouTube. When he’s not working on the portfolio, Sándor spends his time writing, making videos, or adventuring in the great outdoors.

Sándor is also an award-winning writer and filmmaker. He walked 300 miles across New Zealand to make his documentary film, Sándor’s New Zealand Trail. Sándor is an Eagle Scout and Fulbright Scholar. One of his major life goals is to walk the entire Oregon Trail from Missouri to Oregon and make a TV series and book about it. For more on his creative endeavors, visit
