Beth, along with her husband, Matt Flynn, own and operate Flynn Family Lending, a boutique private lending business based in Renton, WA. A self-described private money matchmaker, Beth prides herself in offering full concierge services for trust deed investors seeking passive income opportunities while providing highly creative and innovative lending products to active real estate investors across the state. She is currently a member of the Education Committee for the American Association of Private Lenders (AAPL) and former Board of Directors for the Rental Housing Association of Washington. Beth began her own investing career in the early 2000s with flips, wholesaling, and eventually delving into private lending. She has since grown her own portfolio of small multi-family properties. This experience lead her to co-author her first book, Lend to Live with Alexandra Breshears, a private money lending playbook available for purchase on Bigger Pockets or Amazon (links to purchase can be found on our Media page).
