Dan Bryan

Senior Instructor

Dan Bryan became a full-time real estate investor and acquired his real estate broker's license in 2003. He specializes in short sales and has assembled a team of agents and negotiators who work together to get them done. Dan’s hallmark is in finding the creative financing technique that will get the deal done, and has bought/sold/traded numerous parcels of real estate - homes, mobile homes and land - using creative and non-traditional techniques without institutional financing. Instead, Dan uses seller financing, private loans, hard money, subject to, leases, options, exchanges, notes, joint ventures and combinations of the above for buying and selling properties.Prior to his career in real estate investing, Dan for many years ran a successful electrical contracting business. Dan has held an electrical contractor’s license since 1984 when, at age 21, he was the youngest person to pass the electrical contractors exam in St. Louis County. In 1994, he also obtained his plumbing contractor’s license. This knowledge has made him an expert in fixing and rehabbing houses, and many of his real estate transactions still involve some rehab, where he buys, fixes and resells or rents out the property.Dan was also involved running and building the most active real estate investor group in St Louis, known as “The Street” REIA, and continues to serve on their board. Many local investors & real estate syndicators tap Dan for his knowledge in structuring complicated real estate transactions and joint ventures, including how to effectively use trusts in holding title to real estate and other unusual real estate situations.
