Tell me if this sounds like you:

  • You want to become a note investor, but not have it take forever and cost exorbitant amounts of money.

  • You're tired of feeling like learning note investing is too overwelming and confusing.

  • You need someone experienced to show you what you need to do.

  • You spend too much time dealing with toilets, tenants and trash with your current real estate portfolio.

  • You're over trying to find deals in other areas of real estate investing where there is too much competition.

  • You are looking for a way to raise more money and scale your business.

  • You wish there was an easy way to follow a step by step process and become an active note investor.

Good news!

I help my clients with those same problems every single day.

And if you're like any of them, you've probably made some of the same mistakes.

Mistakes like....

  • Mistake 1

    Thinking you need to spend a lot of $'s on note training.

    SPOILER ALERT: You actually don’t.

    The good news is there are options for learning notes that won't require you to break the bank or take out a loan.

    Note Launchpad will get you up and running faster and with more confidence than other options that are more than 10X the price.

  • Mistake #2

    Assuming it will take a long time before you can start buying notes.

    FACT: You can learn to buy notes in under 30 days.

    You need to do your homework before buying notes. But that doesn't mean you need to spend months going in circles and being unsure if you are missing something.

    The truth is that with the right process and step-by-step system you can be ready to start doing note deals in 30 days.

  • Mistake #3

    Believing that pricing notes is either one size fits all or extremely complicated.

    REALITY: Rules of thumb aren't going to cut it, but it's not that difficult either.

    Some note investors take an overly simplified approach or overly complex approach to pricing.

    The reality is that you can price notes in a way that is fast, yet accounts for the primary factors that determine value.

  • Mistake #4:

    Buying the deals that have the highest potential ROI.

    TRUTH: Risk and reward go together. If you only focus on trying to achieve eye-popping returns, you are setting yourself up to take on excessive risk.

    A balanced approach is the better way to go. Don't get drunk on yield!

    You can use the Note Scorecard to keep track of the positive and negative risk factors for each note, and use this to come up with a risk adjusted target return.

  • Mistake #5:

    Assuming there aren't enough deals out there and that note pricing is too high.

    REALITY CHECK: There is an abundance of high-quality notes available at prices that will give you higher returns with less risk than many other real estate investments.

    You just need to know where to look. Plus, the COVID pandemic has created a backlog of distressed assets.

    Now is one of the best times to get started in notes, right before the new wave of assets hit the market.

    The Note Launchpad can show you not only how to become an active note investor, but how to do it within 30 days!

  • Experienced Note Investors:

    Already have some experience buying notes? Great!

    The Note Launchpad will provide you step by step processes to speed up your sourcing and due diligence, and give you the templates for the systems and standard operating procedures to build a scalable notes business.

  • Seller Financiers:

    Are you already creating or want to create your own seller financed notes?

    The Note Launchpad will show you how to structure them to maximize their value, and teach you what note investors are looking for to make it easier to sell your notes and get top dollar for them.

Basically, this is for you if...

You want to invest in mortgage notes.

You've read a book on notes or listened to a podcast that sparked your interest, but don't know how to get started.

You've fallen down the YouTube and Facebook rabbit hole on note investing, and perhaps taken some training, but you're 
overwhelmed by how to put it all together.

You've already paid for expensive note training but still are confused about how to get started.

You've bought some notes but you're not sure what systems you need to scale your note portfolio and business.

You want an easy, straightforward system to become an active note investor in 30 days.

On the flip-side...

This is not for you if...

You’re looking for someone to tell you that note investing is all rainbows and unicorns.

You prefer to watch YouTube videos rather than get a real, actionable roadmap you can follow step by step.

You don't mind paying for over-priced training that doesn't deliver what you expected, only to be upsold at the end on yet more training.

You’re not interested in growing and scaling your notes business.

You like to move slowly and see a delayed return on your investment of time and money.

What Students Are Saying

Hi, I'm Dan!

I'm a full time note investor who teaches real estate investors how to be become active note investors so that they can have less competition on deals, get better returns, and grow a business.

When I got started in notes I signed up for an expensive 'mastermind' program. While it was very helpful in getting me up and going, I found there were lots of details that were left out, and I had to learn a lot of lessons the hard way and figure out a lot of things on my own.

Since then, I built out the systems and processes needed to run a scalable notes business, and turned my note invesing into a full time business. I currently manage a multi-million dollar portfolio of >60 notes. Teaching has always been a passion of mine, and I love helping fellow investors learn how to get become active note investors.

I'm an aerospace engineer by trade with an MBA who has been an active investor since age 19. I live in Colorado and have 2 amazing girls, and suffer from a serious golf addiction.

Why I created this:

I wanted to package up what I learned and share it with more people.

I chose to create this course because for far too long note investing has been a small niche within real estate investing, with access limited to people who were either fortunate enough to get exposed to the industry through a prior career, or spend exorbitant amounts of money on training.

I also believe that the ability to earn higher returns, help borrowers, and grow a notes business should be accessible to more people.

What's inside

Note Launchpad


  • In this phase we are going to start by teaching you the Money Mindset, which is the most critical aspect of investing. Next you'll go through the Note Foundations Program, and come away with a solid understand of how to be a note investor. This isn't some high level overview, it's the meat and potatoes of note investing! We'll wrap up with how to get your business set up and ready to run, and then find more deals using Marketing Made Easy. Phase 1 already gives you more than most overpriced seminars and mastermind groups!


  • Most people who take note training never buy any notes, you will not be one of those people! In phase 2, we'll take you through step by step and have you making offers on notes. We'll start by giving you a list of sellers and teaching you how to Find Note Sellers Now. Then once you have access to investors, you'll use the Fast Filtering Method to determine which notes to make offers on.

At the end of this phase you'll be able to quickly find, filter and close on deals, putting you in the top tier of note investors!

You'll also learn exactly what you need to do to manage your portfolio efficiently on a day to day basis, and never let anything fall through the cracks. I'll also teach you the secrets of what to do and expect when your note turns into an REO, and how to avoid some of the common pitfalls. By the end of phase 3 you'll not be just someone who is interested in notes or has maybe bought 1, but a competent note operator!

We'll not only cover the tools, tips and tricks you need, but provide you with detailed checklists and tell you exactly what you need to do to scale. Whether it's how to set up and use a CRM, use Standard Operating Prodedures or work with an assistant, you'll be ready to scale your notes business with confidence!

What people are saying about Note Launchpad

Great step by step manual

Kamila T

Dan put together great step by step, easy to follow manual to get going in Note investing. His engineering background really shines in the organization of the course. His teaching style is straight to the point and he explains the ups and downs of the Note investing. He brings up the big earning potential with Notes but also cautions about the down falls which sometimes gets forgotten with other courses. Course includes variety of spreadsheets which will save you time in evaluation of the Notes. The last section about Funding your Growth is really eye opening for all the possibilities out there with Note investing. I would really recommend this for someone looking to get started. Following his steps will help you dot your I's and cross your T's.

Not a 40,000 foot view of notes

Joey P

Dan is extremely experienced in the notes industry, not only through constant study and education, but also real world experience. This course is not a 40,000 foot view of the note industry, but an in-depth, step-by-step, first hand account of what the note industry is and how you can play a successful part in it. I strongly recommend the course.

Much more than an investing course

Brett B

The Note Launchpad Course is an investing course and so much more. The biggest takeaway is something that’s rarely covered in detail - systems. Knowing how to buy is great but knowing the system post-sale is gold.

Well organized and extremely useful

Derek L

In note investing, Dan is one of the good guys. His ethics, background, investing approach, and experience stand to benefit new and experienced note investors alike. I've personally invested with Dan, and feel the knowledge he's providing is extremely high-value.

Very useful to a beginner

WIlliam L

I found Dan Deppen`s Note Launchpad course to be very useful to me, a beginning note investor. The course is well organized and offers extremely useful information to individuals that are ready to invest and become a part of the Note business niche. From tips on launching a business website to a wide range of contact information for Title companies, Loan servicers, Insurance companies, BPO vendors, Mortgage loan originators, Attorneys and Note sellers; Note Launchpad has everything a note investor needs to feel confident starting their note business. Those already familiar with the note business will also find the the course very useful. Dan freely shows his methods for evaluating performing and non performing notes and offers common sense advice and encouragement.

Note Launch is EXACTLY the program I have been seeking

Catherine B

I met Dan at a Guru’s Mastermind a couple years ago and left those events inspired and better connected to vendors, but lacked the critical foundation I needed to buy a note let alone launch a note business. Over the years, Dan has done the heavy lifting to figure-out the note industry and he is sharing what he’s learned! I now have a road map with actionable steps, systems and processes, do and don’ts and insight into who to contact for what in this business. All of this has removed the fear and overwhelm that has prevented me from getting started in the first place.
