Blake Janover — Founder & CEO
As the CEO of Janover Ventures, Blake Janover oversees the capital markets advisory, equity placement platform, digital and technology strategies for Janover Ventures and its family of sites including multifamily.loans, commercialrealestate.loans, hud.loans, cmbs.loans and dozens of others (visit janover.ventures/brands). He is an honorary member of the 2019 Forbes Real Estate Council and is regularly published in Housing Wire and other industry trade journals.
Throughout his career, Mr. Janover has overseen the underwriting and origination of billions of dollars of commercial, multifamily and residential real estate loans with a core competency in FHA insured debt, GSA financing, CMBS loans, bank, debt fund, and other similar vehicles. He has run lead on LP equity syndications and advised on secondary-market bond-pricing negotiations. Additionally, he has advised borrowers on hundreds of multimillion-dollar real estate transactions, including complex, multi-layered capital stacks and the re-positioning of large multifamily, hospitality and assisted living portfolios.
Mr. Janover’s recent ambitions involve making himself obsolete. Part of the Janover Ventures mission is developing a series of tools to create a self-service model for commercial and multifamily borrowers and sellers (IS), ultimately eliminating the need for traditional commercial real estate brokers, financial intermediaries, underwriters and processors. By leveraging neutral networks and intelligent underwriting and pricing models, the services will drive costs down while providing superior execution and transparency to the individual client (individual or institutional).
