NEW YORK – Feb. 06, 2018 – Reonomy, a leading provider of commercial real estate (CRE) data and analytics, today announced $16 million in new funding, led by existing investor Bain Capital Ventures together with new strategic industry investors. The new funds will be used to fuel growth and adoption for Reonomy’s expanded CRE data business, which now includes API feeds and data services for enterprise customers in addition to subscription-based web applications.
“Reonomy’s dedication to providing superior data and analyses will help the commercial real estate industry harness machine learning and data science,” said Alex Yarmolinsky, Managing Director at MMC Technology Ventures, a subsidiary of Marcus and Millichap Company. “Their tools empower commercial brokers everywhere to achieve their goals with greater efficiency, and we’re excited to become an investor in Reonomy.”
MMC joins new investors Red Apple Group and JAWS, the family office of Barry Sternlicht (chairman and CEO of Starwood Capital Group), in Reonomy’s latest round. The round also includes venture debt from long-time Reonomy partner Silicon Valley Bank. Existing Reonomy investors include Bain Capital Ventures, SoftBank, Lerer Hippeau, Primary Ventures and KEC. To date, Reonomy has raised a total of $38.4 million.
“With this latest capital raise, we will continue to build out the proprietary technology platform that has enabled us to build a unique data asset over the past five years,” said Richard Sarkis, CEO and co-founder of Reonomy. “2017 was a big inflection point for us, as we built on the initial success of our NYC platform by scaling it nationally, while also launching a suite of enterprise API products for our largest clients.”
Among those using Reonomy’s data APIs to build innovative systems is global commercial real estate advisory firm Newmark Knight Frank (NKF). “We are looking to integrate several systems into a single interface to create a game-changing tool for our professionals,” said Raj Bhatti, chief technology officer at NKF. “Reonomy is a core part of the sophisticated resource we are building. Our partnership with the firm is allowing us to make powerful data accessible to employees across our organization.”
Since 2013, Reonomy has been developing a data engine that ingests and analyzes billions of property, company, tenancy and ownership data points, so investors, brokers, lenders, appraisers and others can have immediate access to property-level information and asset and market trends in an elegant web dashboard or data API.
“Since our initial investment, we have watched the Reonomy team convert hundreds of companies and thousands of users into loyal subscribers,” said Mike Krupka, managing director at Bain Capital Ventures. “Their ability to scale from a New York platform to a national platform, and now a suite of powerful enterprise solutions, is a testament to Rich’s vision. Reonomy is quickly becoming a key player as the CRE industry shifts to data-powered services.”
Reonomy will continue to invest in augmenting its data offering, improving the user experience on its web applications, and surfacing powerful analytics for faster and better business decisions. Click here for more detail on the company’s products.
