A Little About Ruben Izgelov:

With over a decade in the real estate industry – acquiring, flipping, developing, and financing over $500MM in real estate – Ruben has quickly become a renowned real estate expert, speaker, and guide for many professionals in the industry. He is the co-founder and managing partner of States Capital (a private real estate debt fund) and We Lend (a private real estate lending platform). Ruben graduated from St. Johns University and Touro School of Law, earning a BS in legal studies and his JD, finishing cum laude and magna cum laude. 

Who Is States Capital? 

  • Private debt fund focused on making short-term bridge loans
  • Secured by first liens on real estate — located primarily on the east coast
  • High-yield returns — with capital preservation and diversification of your financial portfolio.

States Capital, powered by We Lend, allows accredited investors to invest in real estate without the risks of owning real estate. As a first lien lender against real estate, we are inherently more secure than an investor in the property simply because we are in a much safer part of the capital stack.
