CONCORD, Calif., March 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Lodgepole Fund No. I, LLC just closed out its seventh consecutive year of 10+ percent net returns, attributing its consistent performance to strong and experienced management and employees.

“This is the seventh consecutive year that Lodgepole Fund has earned a net return of over 10 percent for its Members,” says John Simonse, President of LHJS Investments, LLC, and one of the Managing Members of Lodgepole Fund No. I, LLC.

Simonse went on further to explain, “Most real estate loan investment funds return at most 6-7% net to their Members. The fact that Lodgepole Fund has returned over 10% for 7 years running is nothing short of extraordinary.”

When asked how Lodgepole Fund was able to complete this feat, Mr. Simonse stated, “We have a very strong management team and a very strong staff who have been with us for over 10 years. What is really amazing is that over this time period we have also not had one foreclosure of a loan.”

Asked how an individual could invest in Lodgepole Fund, Mr. Simonse stated, “Right now the Fund is closed to new Members. However, we will be looking to raise new capital this summer.”
