About Us

AssetAvenue is a next-generation real estate lending platform

Building The Avenue

AssetAvenue was founded in December 2013 in Los Angeles, California to address a continuing marketplace issue of opaque and constricted lending practices in the commercial real estate industry. With the emergence of successful peer-to-peer lenders in other verticals, our co-founders saw the opportunity to apply this solution to commercial real estate.

They witnessed and experienced the pains caused by the mortgage meltdown in 2008, and the ensuing impact it had on available credit for borrowers and decided to create a solution. Under their leadership, AssetAvenue has evolved into a sophisticated technology platform that connects borrowers with accredited and institutional investors and a business that is committed to creating lasting change in the real estate industry.
