Event Overview


Poonam Mathis, Founder, StealthForce


I recently caught up with Poonam at our SF event this Spring and was so pleased to see how StealthForce continues to grow and evolve. StealthForce is the gig economy of real estate. They deploy an army of industry veterans, from junior through C-level, both moonlighting and employed, for project-based consulting on demand, and the company earns a portion of each engagement. They carry no overhead, and can therefore create great value for their customers. How is that even possible?!?! They are disrupting the human capital portion of the real estate investment process and are developing the platform for integrated access to all top CRE softwares thus enabling clients to hire the best talent, and arm them with the best tools, all on a project-by-project basis, and all through one integrated platform as you may have heard from our recent #TALKSHOP live.

The concept for StealthForce was conceived when Poonam was traveling globally as deputy to the head of asset management for a RE PE team, and realized that all the major shops deployed “expensive generalists” like herself to review deals across asset classes and around the globe, arming them with only broker opinions and general market studies. She recognized that it wasn’t a lack of budget for specialized talent that was preventing global investors from getting deeper insight – it was the lack of a method to access them on short notice. Resourcing for insight is totally inefficient and having been a part of the early team at GLG she was determined that she could make it happen. And she did! In an incredible fashion.

If you haven’t met Poonam, you can catch up with her this fall. She will be speaking or moderating panels at ULI, CCIM, ICSC (wow what a resume of speaking engagements!) and of course exhibiting at our CRE // Tech NY Conference on December 7th! She is a high quality person as well as an exceptional entrepreneur and business person!

#CREtech Exhibitors: StealthForce


Event Overview

Scale resources according to your dealflow – rather than the other way around. has built an army of real estate investment professionals from analyst level through C-suite, and designed a platform which makes them available for project-based consulting, on-demand. Investors, developers, auditors, family offices and even CREtech startups leverage their network to hire conflict-free, experienced industry veterans for everything from building an excel model to building SOPs for asset management. StealthForce launched as the gig economy of commercial real estate, but is rapidly expanding through integration partnerships to become the Trello of real estate insight, software and talent resourcing. This will be their fourth CRE // Tech.

Our team at CRE // Tech recently caught up with StealthForce to learn more about their site, strategy and vision.

What does your site do?

StealthForce is the global rolodex of a real estate stakeholder’s dreams. We scope projects, define deliverables, vet for conflict and match consultants with clients who want to hire them by the day, by the project, or as a test-drive for a permanent role. Our fee is a percentage of the project total. Currently we’re building out integrations with CREtech software providers whose tools can add even more value for our clients on a project-basis.

Who are your customers?

We serve investors, developers, funds and related third-parties looking to streamline their operations (brokerages, accounting firms, etc.). Our typical user is a director of acquisitions or asset management, or a principal investor. What they all have in common is a  need for targeted insight, and an appreciation for flexible support.

What are the core benefits of using your site?

Unlike other gig economy platforms like UpWork, we focus exclusively on real estate talent, enabling us to not only productize many of the items a typical client will need to move through the deal cycle, but also to design the entire process in a way which protects both parties. And the caliber of our talent is a testament to that. Unlike leveraging outsourcing companies like Situs, you personally select your consultant on each project, and work directly with that person, to get the work done correctly the first time. And unlike hiring a recruiter, when you use StealthForce and then hire someone full-time, you’ve had the chance to effectively rent them before you buy.

How’s business?

Business is growing! Quarter over quarter our pipeline has nearly tripled, and in particular we’ve begun to develop strong word-of-mouth. Not only are our clients telling others about us, but some of our consultants have become clients as well. This fall, our Founder will be speaking or moderating panels at ULI, CCIM, ICSC and more, which should provide an additional boost to our reach.

What are your future plans?

Next up for us is raising another round of financing, and building out our roster of software integration partners. The prototype of our project management system has been well received, and we look forward to building version 2.0, which will not only reduce match times from two days to a matter of hours, but will arm them with quick trials of fantastic softwares which they may be considering integrating across their companies at a later date, an on a permanent basis. For us, it has always been about enhancing efficiency in resourcing. We’ve got our sights set far beyond talent.

Come meet StealthForce at CRE // Tech New York on December 7th and follow them on twitter @Stealthforceco!

Q&A With Poonam Mathis, Founder of StealthForce


Event Overview

From time to time we at The News Funnel come across truly unique players in real estate tech – innovative entrepreneurs addressing industry challenges with tools or approaches unlike anything else we’ve seen. One such example is a Founder we recently met, with a surprisingly simple solution to a universal problem. Her name is Poonam Mathis, and in the language of their website, the StealthForce team is “disrupting the human capital component of the real estate investment equation – one project at a time.” She’s addressing a need that we think more than a few of our readers can relate to.

The News Funnel: Who and what is StealthForce?  Did you intend for it to sound like a special ops team?

Poonam: In a way, the name was a subliminal attempt to evoke the image of magical real estate ninjas parachuting into your boardroom, getting the deal done, and disappearing over a wall into the ether. But on the surface, we wanted to mirror the word workforce, and make it clear this is more ‘stealthy.’ To answer your actual question, StealthForce is the gig economy of real estate. We’re a global real estate consulting network for project-based work. We match real estate investors looking for scalable talent with project-based consultants from industry ,and we earn a matching fee. Consultants range from appraisers, architects and construction managers through acquisitions and investment professionals from analyst level through the C-suite. No project is too large or small; including board placements.

TNF: How are you different from recruiters or outsourcing firms?

P: It’s all about mission. The best analogy I have is Uber; they provide rides, but are not a taxi company because their mission was to provide the world with a private driver. We facilitate talent matches but we’re not a recruiter because our mission is the democratization of talent access.  Unlike recruiters, we do not focus on full-time placements. Our focus is everything else. Someone to build a financial model or do an appraisal, for example. And unlike outsourcing firms like Situs or even a typical appraisal firm, we carry no overhead, so we pass no overhead on to the employer. All members of our consulting network are contractors to the platform and the client. The value proposition of StealthForce is that real estate investment is a deal-based business with variable talent demands, which needs a matching solution. But it demands that solution at a professional level, which is why nearly 75% of our consultants are employed full-time (and the other 25% are independent, between roles or semi-retired). We are focused on uncovering non-conflicting opportunities for the upper echelons of real estate investment talent. Professionals wants to monetize additional capacity, and employers want to minimize fixed overhead. We meet them both in the middle.

TNF: Why now? Why you?

P: This was the right time for the gig economy model in real estate, because not only are we seeing a major shift towards gig work economy-wide, but the demographic trends support it. Experienced industry veterans who want to step away from full-time work but aren’t ready to retire are looking for consulting roles, at the same time as a whole new generation of younger real estate investment professionals is starting careers firmly focused in work/life balance, and therefore less likely to spend 25 years at any one REIT or global firm. It’s just not the life they picture anymore. This was the right time for me to launch StealthForce (earlier in 2016) because I had spent over 10 years in real estate (private equity and development), and I finally saw the writing on the wall. There were so many times when I wanted more specialized talent but didn’t have the rolodex or the time to source it and still get my deal done. I figured there had to be a better way; when I began to understand the potential of on-demand as a movement, the pieces fell into place. I had started my career helping to build the original expert network, GLG. So all things considered, I saw that my career had been building towards this moment.

TNF: Who’s the typical client? What does a common project look like?

P: Our clients vary and can include anyone from a small developer to a global REIT or corporate real estate team, but the early value proposition we’ve uncovered is simply lean investment firms seeking to tap into top-tier talent. When they do three deals a year, they can’t keep BlackRock alums on full-time payroll, but when it’s time to run methodical due diligence, they know that’s what they need. And we’re here to make a match. Employers join the platform for free, and describe their ideal consultant. We curate and propose the top three candidates, and if the select one, they sign contracts and get started with the work. We can go from signup to consultant match in as little as 96 hours.

TNF: What’s next for StealthForce?

P: We are building our customer base. In the long-term we anticipate a fairly even spread of clientele across the investment spectrum from small investors through global firms, but at the moment our business development efforts are focused on spreading the word to developers, mid-size investment firms, and family offices.

Poonam Mathis is the founder of StealthForce, the real estate industry’s answer to the gig economy. A global real estate consulting platform, they connect investors with curated real estate talent through the investment value chain, by the day, by the project, or as test-drives for permanent roles. Prior to founding StealthForce, she was Global Deputy to the Head of Real Estate Asset Management at Partners Group, a $40+ bn private equity fund. StealthForce advisors include Phil McAndrews (former Global Real Estate CIO for TIAA), and Barry Barovick (former CEO of Grubb & Ellis as well as FTI Consulting).

StealthForce: Global On-Demand Platform for Project-Based Consulting Assignments


Event Overview

For project-based real estate consulting assignments, StealthForce is the only global on-demand talent platform available. With a network of top industry professionals that offer outstanding experience, employers can scale talent on a project-by-project basis as opposed to paying inflated payrolls throughout the year.

The problem is that many professionals in real estate take on projects in which they have no real expertise or passion. By using StealthForce, teams are tailored according to need. In addition, consultants have the opportunity to choose projects that align with their skills and interests. Thanks to the concept of StealthForce, hiring models in the real estate market have forever changed.

Using StealthForce

The process involved in using StealthForce is quite simple. First, a project is posted. In the posting, an employer provides details and requirements for a particular assignment. The employer sets milestones, establishes a deadline, and creates deliverables and the fee. From there, consultant matching occurs; only consultants with relevant experience can see the posting. After consultants apply, the employer receives a list of the top-rated consultants. At that time, the employer can see credentials and ask questions. Once satisfied, the appropriate talent is selected.

Next is the phase completion portion of StealthForce, which uses interim feedback and predesignated milestones. Throughout the time a consultant works on an assignment, agents from StealthForce are available to help facilitate communication and, ultimately, ensure the project is completed seamlessly.

Finally, the project is closed out. Once the final project deliverable is accepted by the employer, funds for work performed are released to the consultant. Feedback is requested from both parties at that time based on their overall experience. With this information, StealthForce can optimize the matching process and make the experience even better for future projects.

Helpful Information

In looking at the consultants who work through StealthForce, there is no one specific type of person. All members are professional, whether working full-time, on a sabbatical, or self-employed. The experience that the consultants bring to the table varies, although it all focuses on real estate.

Before a project is launched, a deposit is made by the employer. After the completed project is delivered to the satisfaction of the employer, the funds owed are released, minus fees associated with the services. From there, the completed work becomes the property of the employer.

To ensure the quality of services provided to employers is never compromised, team members with StealthForce consider feedback. The team also eliminates consultants from the database on a regular basis as needed. For example, if consultants cannot perform work at the level expected for any reason, they are removed from the pool of talent. That way, employers only receive a list of consultants that meet high standards for experience and expertise.

Founded by finance and real estate professionals, StealthForce takes a unique approach to matching employers with talented consultants. As a result, this service provides flexibility and enhances efficiency through a network for real estate professionals who need expert assistance.

Guest Blog – Shiny Hubcaps… Indefensible Startups


Event Overview

By Poonam Mathis, Founder at StealthForce

Anyone who was at the Fall 2016 CREtech Intersect in San Francisco and remains in the space today can tell you how rapidly we’ve moved from a small, pioneering community (bemoaning the widespread resistance to adoption of the amazing tools we’d created) into something much more like Burning Man (new folks appearing every day, looking less original each time). Such is the nature of a party at a tipping point.  The attention of the CRE industry was what we wanted, and with that attention came competition. But after the tipping point, things move quicker, which is why most CEOs I know are taking a step back to reevaluate, reinforce, and strategize. VTS and Hightower joined forces. Spotahome, Reonomy and others inked eight-figure funding rounds with specific gameplans in this quarter alone. And the first pre-2016 vintage startups are now shuttering or consolidating in waves. The next step on the minds of those who are making it through is not just with whom to consolidate; that’s just an increase in headcount. Smart minds are focused on how to own their space.

In their HBR piece The Consolidation Curve, Deans, Kroeger and Zeisel outline the four stages of industry evolution as (1) Opening, (2) Scale, (3) Focus and (4) Balance & Alliance. Per that model, we’re at the mouth of Stage 3 where leaders will “focus on expanding their core business and continuing to aggressively outgrow the competition.” But CREtech is unique in that the entire space, and all the stakeholders, are being bombarded with new technologies simultaneously. It’s not just supply chain, or just sales management, or just mechanical enhancements, or just financial engineering improvements. It’s an entire industry evolving together, with the same major customers adopting various new technologies across their firms at once. If you’re Hines, or Related, or any other big fish, you’re vertically-integrated, so you understand that you can’t upgrade the engine without reconsidering the wheels, fixing the windows, checking the oil and everything in between. So no one hubcap salesman owns you.

The companies which survive to the next phase won’t just be the biggest by acquisition, or have the largest business development army…they will be the ones who’ve made themselves indispensable. Too many CREtech/proptech companies claim to be ‘changing the game’ while in fact just being the most successful vendor so far in a particular niche, be it the hubcap or the broker CRM. And just getting there is impressive, but it’s not enough to get you to stage 4. Vendors are vendors. If a company with a measurable lead in proptech today can figure out how to become truly embedded in their clients, leading with the tool but layering in other services and value that in total is worth more than the value of the parts, rendering the customer truly reliant on them….they will carry us into stage 4 of the Curve. The only question is who will it be?

Guest Blog – The death of The Firm?


Event Overview

By: Poonam Mathis, Founder of StealthForce 

It’s important to be a geek about your business, and as an entrepreneur I take that responsibility seriously, which is how I know that in 1937, while Amelia Earhart was disappearing over the ocean and the Golden Gate Bridge was having its grand opening, a guy named Ronald Coase published “The Nature of The Firm”. Coase made the case that the only reason why firms need to exist is if there are economic benefits (lower organization costs, increased precision, lower supply costs) at scale. It was never about internal-knowledge-sharing or a company’s special sauce.  Along those lines then, one can imagine the conditions that might lead to their demise. From where I sit, that time might be coming sooner than we think. Thinking about CREtech through the lens of how it will change specific functions in the business is a lot like thinking about blockchain solely through the lens of bitcoin. (Translation: There’s a much bigger picture you’d be missing.)

It’s not only the functional business practices of real estate which are being transformed by technology…we are in the midst of a movement comprised of small players with specific tools which, taken together, will forever change the nature of the business of ‘bricks and sticks.’ The real estate firm, as we know it…is facing days that are numbered.

Our company, in pioneering the gig economy for CRE, has made a small dent in the concept of the real estate investment firm. We’re essentially enabling the small guys to operate with the resources of the medium guys, and the medium guys to manage their margins while trying to grow into the big guys, and so on. Some of our counterparts in CREtech targeting brokers may be enabling small brokers to maintain connectivity to their prospective client list on-par with the major brokerages. Other firms may be enabling smaller investment funds to convey portfolio value to their LPs in a more real-time way than every before – therefore operating more like the big guys with entire investor relations teams dedicated to relationship management. The point is that there’s a groundswell emerging around us, chipping away at virtually every small function of the business of real estate. Taken as a set of tools, the CREtech movement is promising. Taken as a litany of microevolutions collectively aimed at making the industry better/faster/smarter than ever before…it looks a lot more like the dawning of a new era, not just for the businesses operating in commercial real estate, but in fact for the nature of the firm, period. And if the firm becomes less relevant to real estate over time, then individual actors become more important. So the question you should be asking yourself, if you plan to stick around in this industry for the long haul probably isn’t “Where is it headed?” but rather “What’s special about me that will keep them calling…even in the absence of the company name on my business card?”
