Why We Built RealtyMogul

The pursuit of building wealth

Our Founding Insights

Real estate has provided generations of investors with wealth. However, it has historically been reserved for those with specialized knowledge, the right connections and access to great amounts of capital. This has kept investing in commercial real estate out of reach for most - until a few years ago.

While working in the wealth management sector, our CEO Jilliene Helman identified three key insights that separated the wealthiest clients from the rest. Her goal of sharing these insights would soon lead to the founding of RealtyMogul.

1. The wealthiest clients were real estate investors

2. Their income was not correlated to their time spent working

3. They focused on passive cash flow through real estate investments

Exclusive Access to Institutional Quality Real Estate.

Our key insights have guided the RealtyMogul mission, pioneering ways to offer discerning investors access to thoroughly vetted commercial real estate opportunities.

Our approach blends personalized service, proven business discipline and data-driven insights. This allows our members to diversify their portfolios with investments in individual properties and Real Estate Investment Trusts ("REITs").

The search for well-managed, cash-flowing buildings.

Our mission is to help members invest with confidence. We only consider deals that pass our stringent due diligence process, and offer investors full visibility into every opportunity on our platform.

We look for well-leased properties or those with leases in hand.

We do not invest in non-cash flowing investments such as ground-up construction or raw land.

We only work with select real estate partners with proven track records and experience managing assets.

Our investors deserve exceptional access and more

Our Beliefs

Discerning investors should have access to institutional-quality real estate opportunities.

Investing in real estate offers a smart way to meet diversified portfolio goals.

Investors should have access to dedicated service and licensed investment professionals.

Human intelligence should validate technology.

Our Promises

Exclusively offer securities through a registered broker dealer.

Adhere to our strict fundamentals, including investing in properties that are well-leased or have other appealing attributes.

Continue investing in data and technology to vet each deal.

Established Track Record

We are proud to offer institutional quality deals to investors seeking to build wealth through commercial real estate. Our straightforward approach focuses on: offering smart diversification strategies, generating cash flow, and creating value in office, retail, and apartment buildings.
