Leon Oransky (aka Oranskiy) began his career in real estate in 1997 as a real estate agent with Paramount Properties in Northridge, California. By the end of his second year in real estate, Leon was one of the top sales producers in the office. In 2002 Leon decided to make a move to Pinnacle Estate Properties, a busy privately owned local real estate company with strong marketing. It proved to be the right move for Leon as his sales production doubled within a year. Leon spent the next 17 years with a firm of over 1000 agents as one of the company’s top producers, successfully closing over 500 real estate transactions with sales volume in excess of $300 Million. In 2019 Leon started Pacific Coast Realty, a boutique real estate firm designed to efficiently service the needs of real estate sellers, buyers and investors throughout Los Angeles and Ventura counties.

In 2004 Leon expanded his real estate services to escrow by co-founding Pacific Trust Escrow, Inc. where he continues to serve as a CEO. Today, Pacific Trust Escrow stands as one of the largest independent escrow companies in California, assisting with closings or real estate sales and refinance transactions, bulk and tract sales statewide.

In 2008, as the real estate market shifted, Leon founded LA REO Team, a dynamic team that serviced over 200 REO properties for national banks, investors, asset managers and other financial institutions. As a Director of LA REO Team, Leon gained extensive experience in real estate asset management, from borrower defaults to REO property closings.

Leon also participated in over 50 fix-and-flips, remodel and additions, and ground-up construction projects, learning a great deal about construction management.

In 2017, seeing a growing need for alternative financing options for real estate investors, Leon founded Pacific Capital Funding Corp (PCFC), a private money lending company. Their goal has been to bridge the gap between individuals and businesses in need of funds and investors looking for real estate secured investments. Extensive experience in real estate brokerage, investment and asset management have been extremely helpful in risk assessment, underwriting and structuring loans. PCFC have been successfully originating and funding private loans throughout California, while providing investment opportunities for trust deed investors.

In 2020, as the mortgage rates hit historic lows, Leon formed LendingPlace, a full-service mortgage brokerage which offers a wide range of Conventional and Non-QM mortgage products.  As a business owner and real estate investor himself, Leon’s focus has been on non-traditional lending options for self-employed borrowers and real estate investors.  As a result, LendingPlace has established a working relationship with most of the top nation leading constitutional and private lenders who offer non-traditional loan products. LendingPlace offers their clients some of the most innovative mortgage options available today, at highly competitive terms.
