Revere CRE Inc. (“Revere”) is a networking and deal financing platform for commercial real estate professionals borne out of the COVID-19 pandemic and recession in July 2020. After 12 years on Wall Street and working for the DeBartolo Family (shopping mall founder and 5x Super Bowl winner) in real estate private equity, we set out to lower the cost of traditional brokerage through technology and to democratize real estate data so everyone, not just big companies, can-do high-quality research and analysis. Transactional data and capital markets information will no longer flow in one director nor will it be held captive by intermediaries.

With the goal to revolutionize the $250 billion global brokerage and services industry and to become the daily homepage for CRE professionals, we had to clock 3,000+ hours from July through the New Year, read 25 books on starting a technology business, and facilitate thousands of conversations with other founders, VCs, users, partners, investors, and future employees.

We cannot thank enough the following people for their guidance, perspective, and source of truth in their own respective journey’s, which served as great inspiration for me and my best friend of 20 years as we stroll down the road less traveled.
