Our mission is to transform the real estate industry by giving investors the same direct and free access to commercial real estate that institutions, pension funds & university endowments have always had. Why?
Because we believe commercial real estate offers benefits to investors that no other investment class can.
We don't get in the way of the relationship, yes we provide the magic in the middle, but it's all about connecting YOU, the investor, direct to the real estate professionals. If you are looking for a crowdfunding platform that acts as hedge fund and puts a wall between you and the sponsor, please visit our competitors.
Our simplified approach, by not getting involved in the middle, allows capital to more efficiently flow to your bank account.
The opportunities on RealCrowd are from real estate companies that do not need your investment to close on their offerings. Real estate companies use RealCrowd because they want to build a network of online accredited investors and form long term relationships.
Every real estate company on RealCrowd must have at least 10 years of principal-level experience and at least $50 million in transactional history as principals.

"RealCrowd enables the investor to invest directly with the sponsor instead of the platform being the middleman and by doing so increase efficiency and ultimately returns."
"I was so excited to finally find a marketplace for commercial real estate that allows me to diversify my portfolio into an area normally out of reach for the average investor like myself."
"RealCrowd allows me to participate in higher cash flow investments and diversify my portfolio with a few clicks of a button. They’ve made investing in real estate fun."
Often, before looking into investment opportunities, newer investors like to first get further acquainted with RealCrowd and the real estate companies on our platform. A great place to start is by emailing me, Tyler Stewart, head of investor relations at TylerS@realcrowd.com to request a phone call.
To get to know some of the real estate companies on RealCrowd, investors will often circle two or three offerings that seem interesting on the surface and then reach out to managing members of the real estate company to discuss in greater detail. Direct contact information can be found on each of the offering pages.
To show a real estate company that you’re interested in their offering and to initiate the investment process simply click “Apply To Invest” on an offering page. Once you click “Apply To Invest” there are four steps (listed below) to close an investment.
Investor profiles are used to certify the accreditation of the investor and to pre-fill the real estate company’s subscription documents
We partnered with our friends at VerifyInvestor.com to securely automate certification at no cost to investors. Once your investor profile is selected you will be directed to go through the VerifyInvestor.com process.
After your accreditation is certified, the subscription documents will be sent to your inbox for review & signature. Once the documents are executed, they will be made available in your online portfolio.
Once the subscription documents are executed, the real estate company will send the funding instructions directly to you and you will fund directly into their account.
