Las Vegas Headliner - Humanitarian Award - Cancer Survivor

Frank was also born into an immigrant Italian family with ten generations of professional singers dating back to the year 1700. Needless to say, he was born with music in his blood, so by day he was a Computer Programmer Analyst and by night sang locally.

A major entertainment Manager heard Frank sing and arranged an audition at the Frontier Hotel in Las Vegas and hired him on the spot as their Headliner and he headlined alongside superstars like Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson, Tony Bennett, Reba McEntire, Marty Robbins, Tammy Wynette and many more.

Top Producing Realtor - Equity Share Developer

After traveling worldwide for many years as a Concert Artist, Clinical and Motivational Speaker Frank and his wife decided to settle down where he received a Finance Lender's License and moved to Northern California so my wife could assist her ailing parents.

Turning Lemons into Lemonade

Frank always enjoyed investing in real estate so he obtained a California Real Estate Sales License.

Unfortunately, it was during a major recession in real estate. Homeowners could not sell their homes and many defaulted on their loans. In addition, Homebuyers qualified for an 80% loan but could not obtain the needed 20% down payment.

Frank heard about a little known program called Equity Sharing and believed it could be the solution. After months of research he developed his "Equity Share Program" and presented it to three major mortgage lenders who approved it.

He then produced and hosted his own "Real Estate Radio Talk Show" and conducted creative financing presentations for prospective clients and real estate agents. His radio show was a success and homebuyers, sellers and developers contacted him for help.

Frank became Investment Manager, Top Lister abd Top Producer for a Coldwell Banker affiliate.

The "San Francisco Chronicle" featured Frank's program in one of their real estate articles and the "Wall Street Journal" featured Equity Sharing as a viable program for homebuyers.

Frank isonly one of a handful of Innovative Financing and Equity Share Facilitators in the United States and says, he is gratified and humbled at the assistance his program provided for people in need of help and truly believes Equity Sharing will become an integral part of real estate in the 21st Century.
