About Dan Noble

pictureDan graduated from San Jose State University in the early 70’s and sold real estate for 10 years and quickly became a top performer. During that period he participated in several investment groups as well as owning 6 of his own properties. The decade of the 70’s was dominated by personal and financial development, a difficult undertaking that would later prove invaluable for his growing family.

In 1982, Dan’s focus turned to financing, the economy and helping the average person build wealth. He has created, built, and lost or sold, 5 companies, property, and personal wealth. Today he currently owns directly or in partnership several investment properties. From all this came the personal development and commitment as a student and teacher that his many satisfied long time customers and coaching clients benefit from today and every day.

Dan is a believer in strong friend and family, personal and business structures. His personal time is spent vacationing, going to movies, internet research & study, and just spending quality time at home or at events with Eileen, his wife of 39 years. Their 3 adult children, 3 grandchildren, in-laws, and large extended family are high on their list of activities, in fact a decade’s long tradition of having family dinners every 2 weeks is still rewarding for all, and yes all 3 kids and their kids come.
