Daran.jpg

MANAGING DIRECTOR: Daran Landry

Location: Houston, TX

Daran Landry grew up in a rural little town, outside Lafayette, La. Striving to enter the medical field, he became an EMT First Responder, while still in High School and a Paramedic shortly after graduating. He also worked his way through college as a Personal Trainer, obtaining his first Personal Training Certification in 1989. Growing up around an entrepreneurial father proved to be an invaluable education. As throughout the late 1980’s and early 1990’s, Daran and his father started, grew, and sold several small side businesses, while both maintaining full-time positions.

In the late 1990’s and through 2001, Daran worked for an international aviation staffing and project management company, which introduced him to the Corporate Finance world. This opportunity presented him with the opportunity travel and run offices in Houston, Dallas and the San Francisco Bay area. The tragic events of 9-11 forced the Aviation Industry into an economic “tailspin” and the division that Daran worked for had to shut down, transferring him back to Houston. However, in 2002, his experience in handling the financing aspect of Project Management, as well as negotiating with some of the world’s top AAA+ rated Aviation and Aerospace corporations, easily led him into the Retail Management sector of Banking with Union Planters / Regions Bank.

He made his way up through the banking ranks in Small Business Banking roles and moving into the Commercial Lending sectors with Mutual of Omaha Bank. There he specialized in C&I Lending focusing on lending to Maritime, Aviation, and Energy Service clientele. Beginning in 2014, he was trained in recognizing the attributes and advantages of the SBA 7(a) product offerings for clients who did not yet fit (or fell out of favor with) the conventional banking requirements. Continuously seeking how to best serve clients whom were bankable, just not bankable at that specific time, gave Daran a “King Maker, yet Never the King” servant mentality.

The “Bridge-to-Bankable” concept that was presented to Daran by Rainstar Capital Group was the driving force behind his decision to join an exceptional team of Managing Directors, both nationally and in the Houston market. In addition to his Managing Director’s position with Rainstar Capital Group, Daran owns a martial arts-based fitness business and has served as a featured guest speaker for many of the Banking Industry’s membership driving associations in Houston, such as RMA and Financial Women in Texas, including topics such as self-defense and emergency preparedness.

Miranda 1.jpeg

MANAGING DIRECTOR: Miranda Harris

Location: West Columbia, SC

Miranda Harris is a “bulldog” in the finance and real estate arenas.  Her bulldog persistence, along with her magnetic personality are major assets to real estate investors and business owners seeking immediate funding for their business.  She has been in the finance industry since 2005 and real estate since 2007.  It was while working as a finance manager in the automobile industry that she discovered her passion for finance and gained the label “bulldog” because of her tenacity in working to help clients gain the financing they needed to purchase, even with low credit scores.  

In 2007, Miranda entered the real estate industry as a realtor but later but later became a broker in charge.  Her lending and credit background greatly aided her in putting deals together and becoming a top-producing real estate professional during the real estate crash, her tenacity proved to be a valuable asset to her clients.  It was her “NO is not an option” approach that allowed her to help families realize their dream of homeownership who most likely would never have had a chance.

Along the way, her finance and real estate careers helped her become a credit expert and although her credit expertise helped her build a successful real estate career she decided to return to commercial lending in 2016 and has elected to forego her real estate career in order to focus full-time on funding commercial deals nationwide.  

Miranda specializes in:

  • Commercial real estate funding

  • Unsecured lines of credit

  • Revenue based lines of credit

  • AR, PO and Equipment funding

  • Bridge Loans

  • Commercial Contractor lines of credit

  • Hard Money

Miranda believes in earning her clients’ trust and business and looks forward to building long-term relationships as your commercial funding source.
