The RealtyShares Mission
RealtyShares is the Lending Club/Angellist for Real Estate. Through our online crowdfunding for real estate platform, investors can pool money and purchase shares of private real estate investments. Execution of investor documents and fund transfers are handled securely through our platform as well, allowing investors to complete the entire transaction through our site.
RealtyShares targets investment opportunities in a variety of real estate asset classes, including: Residential, Commercial, Retail and Mixed-Use. Today we offer both fixed-income investments in the form of first-position loans secured by single family homes usually yielding between 8-10% as well as equity investments in apartments and retail properties. Each investment property is professionally managed by a dedicated Real Estate Company making the investment completely passive to investors.
RealtyShares is headquartered in San Francisco, CA.
We are a small yet resourceful team consisting of the founders and our Lead Engineer. The founders met and began working together in Sep 2013, motivated to build RealtyShares together by a similar vision and complementary backgrounds (core competencies in real estate, law, securities compliance, private equity, brokerage, investments, underwriting and technology). Our Lead Engineer is a full stack developer with over 8 years of software development experience.
