Temple View Welcomes New Staff to Meet Increasing Demand

Growth is a common theme at Temple View – from helping our borrowers grow the value of their real estate investments to growing the capital we have to lend. But the most important area of growth for us is in our people. Temple View is proud to welcome the following new members to our team.

Greg Simakovski

Regional Sales Director [West Coast]

Greg joins Temple View as our WestCoast Regional Sales Director. In this role, he will work with his team to both help current clients fund new opportunities, as well as driving requests from and nurturing new relationships. Prior to joining the Temple View team, Mr. Simakovski was the Director of Loan Originations for Los Angeles-based private money firm Sunset Equity Funding. Mr. Simakovski joined Sunset Equity at a time when they needed to increase their production, volume and develop a seasoned team of Loan Officers. Doing so increased the firms market presence allowing it to become one of Forbes 500 fastest growing companies and a leader in the private lending space. He expects to help Temple View navigate a similar growth path. Mr. Simakovski immigrated to the states with his family in 1993 from Belarus and is fluent in Russian – an advantage when working with native speakers with their investment needs. Mr.Simakovski is also a veteran of the United States Navy and was on active duty during operation Iraqi Freedom over a decade ago.
