(New Jersey, July 25, 2023) – Stratton Equities, the Leading Nationwide Private Money and NON-QM Mortgage Lender, proudly celebrates its fifth anniversary. Since its launch in 2018, Stratton Equities has experienced significant growth and expanded its operations. The company has successfully established itself as a prominent player in the real estate investment and lending industry under the visionary leadership of its Founder and CEO, Michael Mikhail.
Mikhail encountered numerous challenges on his path to becoming a prominent figure in the industry. Following a five-year journey spanning 19 countries, he returned to the United States in 2017, homeless and without financial resources. However, his unwavering determination to reshape his future propelled him forward as he drew upon his extensive background in mortgage lending from 2003 to 2010. He deliberately leveraged that experience and explored opportunities within the mortgage lending industry. He faced numerous obstacles, including a lack of managerial support, limited program options, a shortage of leads, inadequate training or technology, and unhealthy work culture. This toxic environment was an industry-wide issue, contributing to a high turnover rate and low production among loan officers.
Stratton Equities was born as a response to these challenges. Mikhail’s vision was to overhaul the methods used by the mortgage lending industry by incorporating more programs and generating an influx of organic inbound leads. Mikhail achieved remarkable success, making $1.3 million within six months of launching the company.
Due to Mikhail’s unwavering dedication to delivering exceptional service and driving success, Stratton Equities is a leading player in the private money and NON-QM mortgage lending industry. With its customer-first approach, state-of-the-art technology, and extensive expertise, Stratton Equities has expanded its market reach and aims to achieve an impressive target of $1.2 billion in closed loan volume annually, or $100 million monthly.
Reflecting on the milestone, Mikhail commented, “As we celebrate, I am humbled and grateful for the incredible journey we have embarked upon. It has been a testament to our unwavering commitment, relentless dedication, and the trust our clients and partners place in us. This milestone is a celebration of our accomplishments and a reflection of the transformative power of perseverance and innovation in the lending industry. We have expanded our reach, refined our strategies, and surpassed expectations each year. As we look back on our journey, we are energized by the opportunities that lie ahead. Together, we will continue to shape the future of real estate financing and empower dreams. This is only the beginning, and the best is yet to come.”
One of the many successes that Mikhail created for Stratton Equities is the unique programs, lead generation model, and loan portfolio milestones. Mikhail has revolutionized lead generation and digital marketing with his innovative platform at Stratton Equities. Unlike traditional private money lenders relying on loan officers to hunt for leads through cold calls and networking, Mikhail’s system brings leads to the company daily, eliminating manual prospecting. This powerful tool generates an abundance of organic leads, surpassing the strategies of other private money-lending companies and propelling the company’s performance while enabling aggressive hiring.
Moreover, Mikhail’s platform provides loan officers with access to the largest collection of nationwide private money and NON-QM mortgage loan programs. This comprehensive offering allows them to effectively cater to the needs of real estate investors, entrepreneurs, and diverse mortgage borrowers.
Stratton Equities has received recognition within the industry for its exceptional services and expertise, as well as for Mikhail’s success. In 2021, Forbes Magazine included Mikhail in their “The Next 1000” list, celebrating individuals redefining what it means to build and run businesses today. NJBIZ, New Jersey’s leading business journal, also recognized Stratton Equities as one of the Top 250 Privately Held Companies for 2021. They further honored Mikhail as one of their 2022 Leaders in Finance, and he was nominated for the prestigious Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year program.
Stratton Equities consistently achieves high levels of customer satisfaction. Through its commitment to providing personalized solutions and exceptional customer service, the company has built a strong reputation for its client-centric approach.

These testimonials and many more highlight the company’s commitment to client satisfaction and its track record of delivering outstanding results.
In addition to client testimonials, Stratton Equities has received positive feedback on reputable platforms such as Indeed and Glassdoor.

Michael Mikhail, CEO Stratton Equities
Michael Mikhail is the Founder and CEO of Stratton Equities, the nation’s leading hard money-lender to national real estate investors, with the largest variety of mortgage loans and programs nationwide.
Having launched Stratton Equities in early 2017, Michael has always been an entrepreneur and innovator in the real estate market, purchasing his first home at 19.
A serial entrepreneur with a foresight for business opportunities, Michael had a slew of small businesses prior to launching Stratton Equities. One of his most prolific ventures was a car wash connected to a gym he was affiliated with in Florida during 2001-2002 while attending college.
It wasn’t until he graduated from Florida State University with a degree in Business, that he officially joined the mortgage industry in 2003 and decided to travel to explore his options globally.
After travelling to 19 countries in 5 years, Michael knew two things; he wanted to start his own business and launch it in the United States. He knew that moving back to the states was the best place he could start something small and grow it into something infinite.
In 2017, Michael noticed how the mortgage industry had transformed after the regulations presented from 2008-2012, and knew it was time to set out something on his own, thus creating Stratton Equities.
Under Michael’s leadership, Stratton Equities has grown into one of the biggest leaders in the Mortgage and Real Estate industry across genres and platforms.
