Providing fast and flexible financing solutions to sponsors for all types of properties in the U.S. has fueled our growth, and with $700 million financed for more than 1,000 projects in 39 states since inception, we’ve quickly become a leader in our industry.

Closing out 2017 were a trio of projects that exemplified the reach of our platform. These three equity transactions along the East Coast included a hotel, a portfolio of medical offices and a grocery-anchored retail center. Combined, they represent more than $6.4 million in capital raised.
“These projects demonstrate RealtyShares’ capacity to finance commercial real estate across a range of property types and markets throughout the country,” said Bryan Schultz, RealtyShares Vice President of Equity Investments.

“This creates opportunities for investors to diversify their portfolios, which can potentially provide sustainable long-term growth," continued Schultz. "Diversification opportunities do not remove the risks associated with investing in real estate, but they can give investors more flexibility to find projects that match their investment objectives.” (article continues below)
Peachtree Medical Office Portfolio
The largest of the three is a $3.25 million preferred equity investment in the Peachtree Medical Office Portfolio in the greater Atlanta area.
The opportunity includes three medical offices, with a total of 58,000 square feet of rentable space, currently leased at 78 percent capacity. The deal is sponsored by RG Real Estate
, an owner and operator of commercial real estate with a focus on medical and professional office properties located in Atlanta.
“RG Real Estate chose to work with RealtyShares because we needed an equity partner with the sophistication, patience and flexibility to get this complicated transaction to the closing table,” said Jay Hammond, Vice President at RG Real Estate.
