Coming from a lineage of real estate development and construction, Joshua began his career at the age of fifteen.  Joshua grew up on construction sites alongside his father who was a seasoned contractor and developer.  Starting in the payroll department Joshua quickly learned the nature of running a business with many moving parts.  At the age of seventeen Joshua transitioned to work alongside his mother in the field of mortgage finance and quickly found himself processing and underwriting loans. In 2001, he was recruited by Countrywide Financial to work in their processing department as a Collateral Analyst.


In 2004, Joshua focused all of his energy on establishing First Nation Financial, a mortgage lending institution based in Encino, CA.  Within months, First National Financial, with Joshua as its CEO, had over sixty employees and gross sales in excess of $6 million in its first year.  In 2008, with the dwindling of the mortgage business Joshua again transitioned into the field of real estate investment. Developing a niche in the field of mismanaged and troubled assets, specifically those in substandard conditions, Joshua was able to quickly create lasting relationships based on performance and results with local city governments to complete the rehabilitation of troubled assets and create value add opportunities for investors by developing and managing stabilized and financially feasible assets.  Having created strong and lasting relationships with real estate professionals Joshua continues to show growth and results in all investment opportunities and has maintained and grown his investor team.


Joshua attributes his success to his parents and his education.  He achieved his degree of Bachelor of Science in Management at the prestigious Pepperdine University Graziadio School of Business and Management.  Joshua lives in Beverly Hills with his family and is a supporter of the Pepperdine University Associates as well as an avid Los Angeles Lakers and Los Angeles Kings fan.
