Steve Kurylo

Founder & CEO

Hello, I’m Steve Kurylo, the proud owner of Magnum Mortgage Corp.

I look forward to sharing my story and hope that you will enjoy getting to know me better.

When I was younger and looking to create a secure source of capital for my retirement, the stock market looked enticing, but after years of speculating, it did not provide the return I was looking for. As a result, I shifted my focus to mortgage investing.
