Cloud Platform for Commercial Real Estate Computation and Property Data Analysis Brings Transparency and Efficiency to Valuation and Investing
New York City, New York, April 24, 2018 — Assess+RE (www.assessre.com), a leading cloud-based provider of financial underwriting and analysis software for commercial real estate (CRE), today announced it has successfully closed its seed funding round, led by Ranieri Strategies LLC. Ranieri Strategies was founded by Lewis S. Ranieri, an industry pioneer and creator of the securitized mortgage market. This funding round enables the company to grow engineering resources and expands its marketing and sales capabilities within the $15TN CRE market.
“Assess+RE is excited to have closed our seed round with key industry veterans who share our vision and can help the company grow our reach within the CRE marketplace,” stated Min Suh, CEO and Founder of Assess+RE. “This new round of capital enables us to significantly scale our customer acquisition capabilities, product development, and the company’s position within the marketplace.”
“We have been tracking Assess+RE’s progress in the marketplace over the last few years and are very impressed by what the company has achieved,” stated Mr. Ranieri. “The management team at Assess+RE has demonstrated it knows how to build sophisticated technology and bring it to a market desperately in need of new software capabilities, which are some of the key reasons why we took the lead role investing in their seed round and joining their board.”
Taking CRE to the Cloud for Speed, Accuracy, Transparency and Collaboration
Suh continued, “Accurate property level valuation is the key underlying requirement for all commercial real estate investment. But, up to this point, software within commercial real estate has been underserved by legacy, on-premise technology that restricts transparency and collaboration, often forcing stakeholders to determine asset value from siloed information and preventing timely valuation. Assess+RE brings unique and powerful solutions that we believe will change the CRE industry.”
