The first two-sided marketplace for investing in real estate debt

We’re taking on one of the world’s biggest industries with an even bigger idea: to make real estate financing work better for everyone.

We designed our technology-based system to improve the experience for all participants

From investors, lenders, and, yes, to end borrowers. In our marketplace, hundreds of loan originators and thousands of investors easily transact, while only ever having to work with one party: PeerStreet.

Nationwide Network of Private Lenders

We source loans from a nationwide network of private lenders and brokers...

Individual and Institutional Investors

...then aggregate, service, and manage those loans for individual and institutional investors

As a society, we can either continue to build more new homes and take over green spaces, or we can up-cycle and renew aging and dilapidated homes.

Brew Johnson
Founder and CEO, PeerStreet

Our ultimate goal: Building wealth and rebuilding the American neighborhood

We support private lenders who make loans to real estate entrepreneurs, who then rejuvenate aging homes. Not only does this create local jobs, but it also improves neighborhoods and local communities by reversing the decay of aging housing across the United States and creating desirable opportunities for new families, renters, investors, and lenders.

A better system for everyone

Our marketplace is designed to align the interests of all participants.

Our leadership team

It was the 2008 financial crisis, and all the warning signs leading up to it, that first inspired co-founders Brew Johnson and Brett Crosby to reimagine a stronger, more transparent system—one designed to improve the lives of all participants.

What’s the best way to invest in real estate?

Real estate is one of the largest financial asset classes in the world — and investing in it is a fantastic way to earn passive income and diversify your portfolio. Plus, since principal can be recouped in a default (in most cases, through the sale of the property through a foreclosure sale), they’re on the safer side when it comes to investing your hard-earned cash.
