What We're Building

RealtyShares is the LendingClub for Real Estate. We've created the leading marketplace for real estate investing through which individual and institutional investors can purchase shares in pre-vetted residential and commercial real estate properties for as little as $5,000 from the convenience of a laptop or tablet. These investments are offered through real estate borrowers/sponsors looking for access to more efficient capital than what banks and other private capital sources are able to provide.

We streamline the investment process so investors can complete the entire process online, signing all documents electronically and transferring funds, securely through the platform. We also provide investors with access to a dashboard through which they can monitor their investments 24-7.

We've had tremendous momentum with $160M+ in originations across over 300+ investments. We've raised $32M in venture capital from USV, Menlo Ventures and General Catalyst Partners.
