Mike Shustek – Founder and Chief Executive Officer

Mike started in the real estate investment industry in 1991 with the launch of Shustek Investments. In 1993, the company became Del Mar Mortgage and then Vestin, one of the largest mortgage companies on the West Coast. Mike was one of the earliest private lenders in Las Vegas. Focusing primarily on loans to builders and developers, Mike’s companies funded and supported hundreds of projects throughout the Las Vegas Valley including apartment complexes, housing developments, commercial shopping centers, mini storages, and acquisition and development projects.

In 2011 Mike saw an opportunity in the undervalued real estate market and formed MVP Mortgage to fulfill a need for both the short-term lender and private investor in today’s business environment.
