Kara M. Garland is the COO of Paradyme Funding. Being extremely career driven, she entered the world of banking and corporate finance directly out of college. She rapidly excelled in the field and spent seven years as a Banking Center Manager, while also teaching Operational Management as a Regional Training Manager and Audit Specialist. Kara facilitated and supervised the opening of countless new branches amidst a western expansion roll-out within her company. Business development and operational functionality was fundamental in her thriving career and has led to a passion for it in the years after.
In 2006, Kara launched her career in real estate, beginning her journey where she resides, in Temecula Wine Country. Her desire to help others and promote personal growth in a small community lead to this career change. It was in this capacity that she learned how to be successful in the challenging market crash of 2008. Her expanding expertise allowed her to leave the world of corporate finance and pursue her dreams to be a real estate entrepreneur. During the time Kara continued to perform in real estate, she sought after a passion that entailed her involvement with real estate investments and development.
While Kara loved traditional real estate, she needed something more. She was only months away from completing the medical schooling to obtain her Physician’s Assistant license, but chose to remain in the world of real estate, moving in just a slightly different direction. Kara fed into a desire to learn more and to be challenged more when she began her journey with Paradyme Funding. She brings a diverse background and focuses her efforts in providing insight conducive to leading the team with positivity, motivation and determination to provide each one of our deals with exceptional attention to detail and care from an overall stand point.
Kara nurtures Paradyme’s relationships in the community and has various outreach programs to educate colleagues in the industry on what we can provide for future affairs. Kara coordinates Paradyme events, seminars, non-profit and charity relationships and continues to search for new avenues to touch individuals that are hungry to learn and grow alongside the company.
