About RealtyMogul

RealtyMogul was founded in 2012 with a mission to empower investors to live the lives they want by generating wealth through real estate investing.

On the Platform, investors pool their money together to invest in commercial real estate deals they may not normally have access to on their own including multifamily, office, retail, industrial and ground-up development. And the best part? The real estate companies manage the properties, providing a truly passive real estate investing experience.

Investors can also invest in one of two REITs (Real Estate Investment Trusts), giving them access to a portfolio of professionally managed properties that can potentially pay monthly or quarterly cash distributions.

Since 2012, RealtyMogul members have collectively invested over $1.1 billion into over $7.5 billion of real estate nationwide, including 33,000+ apartment units (as of March 31, 2023)
