We run extensive background checks, criminal checks, bad actor checks, and reference checks on sponsors. In addition to never allowing a sponsor with a criminal history / any securities related issue to use the platform, we may also turn down sponsors due to poor reference checks even if background and criminal checks come back clear.
We require unaffiliated sponsors to use an unaffiliated third-party escrow agent. When an investor makes an investment with unaffiliated sponsors using the RealtyMogul platform, the investor’s money is transferred directly into a third-party escrow account. All closing conditions in connection with a sponsor’s offering need to be met before the third-party escrow agent will approve releasing investor funds to the issuer or general partner. For example, if an issuer or general partner plans to use funds for a real estate acquisition that does not ultimately transact, the third-party escrow agent will not transfer investor funds to the issuer or general partner, and funds will be returned to investors.
Our controls include visiting every property (or a subset of properties if it’s a fund) to confirm the real estate is what and where the real estate is supposed to be.
We have robust quality controls with detailed checklists and a review of third-party reports.

The above bios and track record were provided by Georgetown Partners and has not been independently verified by RealtyMogul.
Georgetown Partners is seeking a portion of the equity capital required to acquire a 138-unit multifamily apartment building located in Woodbridge, VA (the "Property"). Realty Mogul Investors will invest in RM VA WB, LLC (‘The Company”), which will subsequently invest in VA WB, LLC, a limited liability company that will hold title to the Property.
The Property is located just 25 miles outside Washington, DC and within a 25-minute drive to Amazon's new HQ2 located in Crystal City, VA. Woodbridge has a median household income of $122,426 within a five miles radius of the Property. The Property has easy access to Interstate I-95 and 1.6 million SF of retail within a seven-mile drive from the Property. Additionally, the Property is adjacent to an elementary school and middle school, which provides a built-in demand driver for families with children.
Georgetown Partners has the Property under contract for $28,475,000 or $206,340/unit. This class and quality of the product is very attractive and is well below replacement cost. The total capitalization at acquisition is $32,167,399. The Property is being acquired at a 5.1% cap rate on in-place revenue with the expectation of increasing the Net Operating Income by ~16.5% in the first 3 years of ownership. This Property has a history of operating efficiently with high occupancy at 90% or better. Georgetown Partners intends to continue operating the Property in the same way while creating value by completing the unit renovation plan on the remaining 75% of the Property over a 24-36 month period. In addition to the unit renovation plan, Georgetown Partners will replace the roofs, improve the parking lot, and paint the exterior stairwells across the ten buildings at the Property.
Immediate Value-Add Opportunity: There is a clear path to growth and remaining with value-add potential. Georgetown Partners intends to renovate 103 units or 75% of Property. The projected renovation period is 24-36 months. The scope of the renovation has been budgeted at $7,453 per unit and is projected to generate an average premium of $134/unit per month. For context, recently renovated competitive rents in the submarket are achieving spreads up to $343/unit per month above Haven Woodbridge. An example is a nearby property named Kensington Place, which has an average rent of $1,822/unit per month.
Ideal Commuter Location: The Property has easy access to I-95 and Route 1 and direct walkability to Elizabeth Vaughan Elementary and Woodbridge Middle Schools. Washington, DC, is located 25 miles from the Property, and Crystal City, VA (Amazon HQ2) is 22 miles from the Property. The VRE Station, which connects to the DC Metro, is located 8 minutes from the Property.
Georgetown Partners has retained Noah Living to manage the Property. They are a “best-in-class” institutional-quality property management company. The business plan focuses on completing the renovation of the remaining units at the Property to create long-term value appreciation and additional cash flow.

During previous recessions, Washington DC proved to be one of the most resilient metros in the country due to its diversified economy, strong market drivers and the presence of the nation’s largest employer—the federal government. The stability of the region’s economy underpins its resilient multifamily real estate market.
Minimal Vacancy Change: DC ranked third in the nation in terms of least amount of change in vacancy during the 2008 recession at an average increase of only 150 bps.
Most Stable Rents in the Nation: DC ranked second in the nation for least impacted rent growth. The metro recovered in just five quarters, compared to a national average of 12 quarters. The metro’s peak-to-trough rent change was a mere 2% during the previous recession—lower than the nearly 6% national average.
Prolific Investment Market: Since recovery in 2010, DC’s price per unit values increased by an average of 6% as investors remain bullish on the metro as a powerhouse center of the East Coast.
Durability of Employment Base: DC currently has the second lowest unemployment rate (9.9%) across the largest 40 metros in the country. It ranked sixth in terms of least YoY impacted for unemployment rate. DC has historically lower unemployment rates compared to the U.S. The strong and prominent labor markets of tech, “Eds and Meds,” biotech, and government are some of the most resilient industries. Tech, in particular, has proven to be a pillar of the economy, with significant future growth centered around the establishment of Amazon’s new HQ2. Washington is ranked #1 for lowest percentage of at-risk employment segments in the current downturn. These strong economic drivers will bolster the multifamily market, drive demand, and lead the region towards future growth. The Washington DC metro has many fundamental characteristics that position it to recover from the current recession in a similar fashion to the way it recovered in previous recessions.
The Property is located in Woodbridge, VA, a bedroom community of Washington, DC. It is less than 1 mile to the Prince William County Parkway exit for easy access to interstate I-95. The proximity to Washington, DC, Crystal City, VA, Alexandria, VA, Arlington, VA, and Fairfax County makes the Property an attractive area for commuters of the DC DMV.
The I-395 Corridor stretches from The Pentagon to I-495 and south of I-95 and runs through Arlington, Alexandria, and Springfield. The I-395 Corridor offers tens of thousands of jobs with numerous amenities and retail centers. Major employers include Fort Belvoir/ Quantico (50,000+ jobs), The Pentagon (23,000+ jobs), U.S. Patent & Trademark Office (10,000+ jobs), Department of Defense’s Mark Center Campus (6,000+ jobs), and Inova Alexandria Hospital (1,000+ jobs). In addition, Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport is located in the I-395 Corridor, the closest commercial airport to Washington, DC, handling more than 24 million passengers in 2019 (Federal Aviation Administration, 2020). Haven Woodbridge has a prime inside-the-beltway location with immediate access to I-395 with the multitude of employers surrounding the Property and minutes to Washington, DC’s CBD.
The Fort Belvoir North Area, located 12 miles from Haven Woodbridge, has experienced rapid growth over the last ten years due to BRAC. Fort Belvoir now employs over twice the workforce of The Pentagon. Increased military and defense spending by the new administration is expected to create thousands of additional jobs at Fort Belvoir and the Marine Corps Base Quantico. As these large employment hubs continue to grow, Haven Woodbridge is perfectly positioned to fulfill the increasing rental demand.
