Celebrating Nine Years of Reinventing Real Estate Investing: a Journey Through CrowdStreet's Milestones

Democratizing access to private real estate investments and creating a positive impact

by CrowdStreet

This month marks the 9th anniversary of CrowdStreet’s Marketplace, a pioneering online investment platform for private real estate investors and sponsors. 

As we reflect on the past nine years, we are proud to have been a part of the journey to democratize access to private real estate investments and create a positive impact on society. 


Nine Meaningful Milestones


  • Launched CrowdStreet Marketplace and raised $1.6 million in three weeks for its first sponsor, Mainstreet Capital, validating the founders’ vision and marking the beginning of an exciting journey in the world of real estate investing


  • Established CrowdStreet Advisors, a federally registered investment advisor, to guide investors who seek exposure to the commercial real estate space but don’t have the time or expertise to build a portfolio themselves

  • Introduced CrowdStreet Funds and Privately Managed Accounts service to provide even more options to investors  



  • Crossed the $1 billion threshold in total invested capital through the CrowdStreet Marketplace since inception



  • Expanded ESG (environmental, social, and governance) goals and targeted to launch 15% of real estate offerings with sponsors who meet CrowdStreet's ESG criteria. Ended 2021 with 17% of CrowdStreet's offerings satisfying its ESG criteria.



  • Launched CrowdStreet REIT (C-REIT) to help investors and advisors by providing access to a range of investment opportunities from multiple developers across multiple asset classes from coast to coast, with a single investment

  • Established CrowdStreet Capital, a FINRA-registered broker dealer that serves as the foundation for new products and new services and even more advocacy for investors and sponsors



  • Crossed $4 billion in total invested capital through the CrowdStreet Marketplace since inception

  • Nationwide investor community reaches 300,000 individuals


As we celebrate this anniversary, our vision remains clear: “We're reinventing real estate investing to help deliver better financial outcomes.” 

We’re proud of the milestones we’ve achieved so far and are excited about the opportunities that lie ahead. Thank you to our investors, sponsors, and team members (Builders) for making CrowdStreet the success it is today.
