“It makes sense that you would search for real estate investment opportunities online like other investments,” said Jasmine Nazari, Head of Investor Relations and Partner at Urban Green. “We wanted the benefits of the right technology. All industries are moving toward digitization, even though ours is slow to change.”

“For me as a Sponsor, it’s been helpful to see what sort of marketing strategies are working for CrowdStreet. There’s no central source of knowledge about how to navigate private equity real estate and definitely nothing that’s Investor Relations oriented. I appreciate the information CrowdStreet is sharing with us as a partner.”

Wellbrook, Urban Green’s third project on the platform, “…raised a pretty penny with CrowdStreet,” according to Nazari. “We are definitely looking for the next deal that’s a match for their marketplace.”
