Working at CrowdStreet

Over the past seven years CrowdStreet has established itself as the leading online marketplace for institutional-quality commercial real estate investment. Our customer, the individual investor, joins the CrowdStreet community to learn about and invest directly in private real estate offerings. Our mission is to deliver the best online real estate investing experience and make it easy for individual investors to diversify their portfolios.

Since launching its marketplace in 2014 CrowdStreet has enabled investors to select and directly invest into specific commercial real estate offerings on the marketplace.  Then in early 2019 CrowdStreet launched its own branded investment products and services which consisted of configured blended portfolios, strategic funds, and separately managed accounts to make it easier for investors (clients) to participate in the offerings. We also launched our own Registered Investment Advisor (CrowdStreet Advisors) under which these products and services reside. 

Over the years, CrowdStreet has been recognized by top industry publications as a leader in the commercial real estate space. Named by The Oregonian as a 2020 Top Places to Work, CrowdStreet is also a Forbes Top 500 Best Startup Employer, part of the Deloitte Technology Fast 500, the 2020 Oregon Technology Awards Accelerate Company of the Year, and was ranked #5 for "Fastest Growing Private Companies in Oregon & SW Washington" by the Portland Business Journal.
