INFLUENCERS IN TECHNOLOGY
By Erika Morphy, GlobeSt.com
Tech has always been a tricky space for commercial real estate. At first, the industry was a laggard in tech adoption; then it soon caught up. In the meantime, technology has been evolving to the point where it can remake companies’ business models and go-to-market strategies. Keeping up with these trends requires both tech acumen and a deep understanding of commercial real estate. We’ve identified some of the top people who have accomplished that.
As one of the first pioneers in real estate crowdfunding in 2012, RealtyMogul introduced an entirely new way for individual investors to gain exposure to investments. Founded by CEO, Jilliene Helman, RealtyMogul was instrumental in bringing online crowdfunding to mainstream investors, allowing accredited and non-accredited investors to invest. The RealtyMogul team thoroughly vets, underwrites and manages each deal throughout the full lifecycle, and additionally physically visits each property it intends to invest in. Through proprietary technology, the firm has built a highly-automated investment process on its platform to efficiently verify investor information, collect investor funds, electronically share compliance reports and close deals on time. RealtyMogul continues to serve as a leader in the space with a variety of offerings for investors, including private placement opportunities for JV equity investments, 1031 exchanges, funds and two separate REITs. Since inception, RealtyMogul and its affiliates have raised nearly $500 million in online capital, with a current portfolio valued at more than $2 billion. With more than 185,000 registered users, the growing platform has returned more than $120 million in capital and distributions to investors*. As an informative, user-friendly website for investors, the platform continues to revolutionize the industry with new technology, features and opportunities.
