Tech Startup, Realized, Is Helping Facilitate Real Estate Investments


A new tech startup is making investments in real estate easier for those with $1-$5 million.

Realized, a tech start-up that seeks to connect investors to real-estate invesment opportunities recently raised $6 million dollars in private funding.

The tech startup helps investors avoid tax hits when investing in property. The startup target individuals with a net worth between $1 million and $5 million.

Since its launch in 2016, Realized has helped facilitate nearly $350 million in real estate transactions. Real-estate operators are usually looking for co-investment capital in commercial real-estate investment opportunities. Realized helps fill that need with “millionaire next door” investors with capital.

The start up did not provide a company valuation during the last round of funding. Realized hopes to use the current capital privately funded to expand its technology team and recruit investment managers, CPAs and lawyers.

The lead investor during the last round was Calibrate Ventures. It is an early-stage venture fund with $80 million in capital commitments. It was founded in 2017 by Kevin Dunlap and Jason Schoettler.

"Customers are coming back multiple times to transact and referring their friends and family," Dunlap said.
