Every investment opportunity presented on CrowdStreet is managed by a deal "manager" or "sponsor." Before you decide whether to invest in a deal, you will know who the manager is and will be provided access to detailed information about them. Typically, the manager is a professional real estate company or entrepreneur with significant experience managing real estate assets.
After an investment is completed, the manager is responsible for making all of the day-to-day decisions and for providing regular updates to the non-managing investors. For example, the manager would determine how much profit to distribute to the investors or whether to hold or sell the property. In some cases, the manager may be required to present a decision to the investors and the investors may be allowed to take action if the manager defaults on the terms of the agreement.
