Our Story

We're real estate investors from San Antonio, TX who vowed to bring affordable, high-quality real estate education straight from industry experts to the masses. After attending several real estate conferences, masterminds and learning first-hand from new investors about their challenges, we set out to create a reliable, trustworthy marketplace for real estate educational content.

Dan Diaz is a creative financing expert who has raised millions of dollars in private capital to fund owner-finance transactions. In addition to owning a sizeable portfolio of notes, he also owns and actively manages several short-term rentals. He is one of the instructors here at the School of Sharks. 

Bhaskar Pandey is an investor who enjoys cash-flow from long term rentals and has been a successful landlord for many years. He is also a technical engineer by education and helped bring School of Sharks to fruition.

What Our Students Have to Say

Thank you, Dan Diaz for all the education and guidance. My husband and I closed on our first owner finance note yesterday. We had planned on doing small amounts of work to it, but found a buyer who wanted to buy it as is. We are cash flowing and buyers are paying the loan servicing fee.

I just bought this house for $223 a month, $0 down for 180 months. Thanks to Dan's training. I'll also be getting my second payment on a owner finance deal.

The 10 hour Owner Finance Deep Dive course is excellent. Thank you so much for making it affordable and putting it together. I really appreciate it.
Charity John's
Not only did Dan teach me how to save a deal with owner finance, he taught me how to create way bigger assignment on a seller finance deal or create a big enough spread for me to cash flow.
