Max McDermott

Founder

Mr. McDermott’s career has been centered in residential real estate for over 25 years, as the founder of companies active in private lending, brokerage, escrow, and residential development.

From an initial seed funding of approximately $2mm in 1993, the private lending operations that have become Secured Income Group have grown to over $100mm in Assets under Management (AUM) from accredited investors. SIG lends primarily to small builders, contractors, and value-added buyers throughout So. California. As a funding vehicle, SIG created the proprietary Secure Rate™ Term Investment, which functions with the simplicity of a CD, but offers the higher yields available through private real estate lending.

Though his primary focus is SIG, Mr. McDermott also founded Realty Masters & Associates in 2013, a residential brokerage with 14 branches and over 790 agents and brokers. Mr. McDermott is also founder of Arbor One Escrow, with three offices and over 30 employees. In 2019, Mr. McDermott also founded Beverly & Co., a residential brokerage based in Los Angeles. Its first branch office located in the Sherman Oaks Galleria, with over 80 agents & counting.

Mr. McDermott is also active in land entitlement, development, and SFR custom home building. Mr. McDermott received his BA from UCLA in 1992, and has been a licensed real estate broker in CA for over 21 years.

Max has been a resident of Orange Park Acres, CA, for over 22 years, and was born and raised in Minneapolis, MN. On weekends he can be found hiking the mountains with his two daughters and wife of 23 years.
