Meet Hans Gildein
Director of Inspections and Joint Ventures
Direct Lending Partners
“Git ‘er done!”
Role at Direct Lending Partners
Hans began his career in the industry as a real estate agent, and has been with DLP since its start in 2009. With his initial goal of eventually flipping homes, he didn’t hesitate when presented with the opportunity to oversee DLP’s entire home-flipping operation. Hans did that for a few years and then got into the lending aspect of home flipping. His role consists of working with investors as they go through the process of renovating properties. As the investors are renovating the homes, Hans sends out inspectors to confirm the work being done, and releases the money to the investors so they can pay for the work. He says the most meaningful part about his job is seeing the investors do a good job.
Get to Know Hans
Hans didn’t always work in the real estate industry. Before getting his real estate license, he was actually a chef. Hans graduated from “The Restaurant School” and was a chef for 15 years. One day, he realized he truly wanted to pursue a career that allowed for personal growth; which led him to break into the world real estate.
Hans currently resides in Coopersburg, PA with his wife and two children. During his free time, he enjoys doing handyman work around his home. Right before winter of 2017, Hans fixed up the family room in his home and even made a fireplace mantel. He can be described as a “go getter,” always finishing what he starts and always looking for the solution to any problem.
