About

As the CEO of Janover Ventures, Blake Janover oversees the capital markets advisory, equity placement platform, digital and technology startegies 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 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). By staying innovative, transparent, and constantly hungry to learn more, Blake and his team are excited to continue to provide the tools and service to make real estate and business financing options available to everyone-- from first-time homeowners and small business owners to the largest corporations and investors in the market

Janover Ventures

Janover Ventures was Founded by Blake Janover, evolving from a residential mortgage brokerage in the early 2000s to a direct lender in 2003 when it was at the forefront of client acquisition and digital automations in an age where technology was barely being embraced in the world of mortgage underwriting and origination. The umbrella of companies grew organically across various verticals from capital markets to direct investments, digital media and technology. The core principals of Janover Ventures and its brands are that there are no substitutes for creativity, listening, innovation, integrity and transparency — and that the only thing static in our world right now is that it is dynamic, fluid and in a constant state of increasing entropy.
