From Norway to Florida to Start New Company & New Profession

Share Article

Civil Engineer Knut F. Garshol is the founder of a private cash flow note business, or a “matchmaker” company. Owners of private financing cash flow notes, who want to sell, are matched with investors with available cash. Today, this is a professional service in growing demand. An increasing volume of real estate, mobile homes and businesses are sold with seller financing promissory notes and CRI LLC helps sellers to liquidate future monthly payments.

The Owner of Casa Real Investments, LLC came from Norway to Miami in January 2000. After 35 years in the tunneling and mining business, at the age of 60, Knut F. Garshol has decided it is time to try something new and different. The question probably comes to mind, why make such a drastic change just around retirement age and there are three main reasons. 1) With good health and lots of energy, retirement at 60 seems too early. 2) To get away from 200+ travel days per year in the current work position. 3) To keep young and flexible by adding new knowledge and a new profession.

It was not easy for a foreigner to sort through possible business opportunities and decide on the best one. It took a couple of years and a lot of money. The final decision: Start a “matchmaker” company, but of a different kind than what normally comes to mind. Matching owners of private financing cash flow notes, who want to sell, with investors with available cash is today a professional service in growing demand. An increasing volume of real estate, mobile homes and businesses are sold with seller financing promissory notes. Rather than monthly payments over years to come, many note holders would prefer to receive cash today. CRI LLC helps sellers to liquidate future monthly payments. Networking with more than 200 other investors ensures that almost any note will receive a bid.

Florida is a major market in its own right. As an example, the State has the highest number of mobile homes in parks and most of them are seller financed. Another major business segment is made up of notes issued when small businesses are changing hands. About 90% of such deals include seller financing and again, the seller would normally prefer or need cash today rather than the monthly payments on the note.

CRI LLC intends to be an information and education resource in the local market in addition to the transaction service offered. The company is starting a quarterly Newsletter titled “Update On Real Estate” with informative articles about private financing and how to solve problems in real estate transactions. CPAs, real estate Attorneys, realtors, rehab contractors and a range of other professionals will find useful information and may subscribe free of charge.
