In this episode, Hall welcomes back Matthew Sullivan, CEO and Founder of QuantmRE.  

Headquartered in Newport Beach, California, QuantmRE is a real estate finance platform that originates and funds Home Equity Agreements. This new financial tool enables qualifying homeowners to get a cash lump sum from their home equity with no monthly payments, no interest and no added debt. A Home Equity Agreement is an equity based solution - it's not a reverse mortgage, it's not a loan and it's not a line of credit. Instead of charging interest, they take a share of the current equity together with a share of the appreciation if the value of the home goes up. They also share in the potential downside risk if the home decreases in value

The QuantmRE platform has also been designed to enable a wide range of investors to fund these Home Equity Agreements, including retail investors. Their platform has been designed to be a secondary market exchange where investors can build, model, manage and trade individual portfolios of fractionalized Home Equity Agreements.

Matthew is the founder of real estate crowdfunding platform and is a manager of two real estate funds. He worked with Richard Branson and his corporate finance team and was appointed a director and Trustee of Virgin’s London Air Ambulance service. Matthew went to Westminster School in London, UK and studied Law at Birmingham University before pursuing a career in finance and stockbroking, specializing in the South East Asian markets. He was an early internet pioneer and has founded companies in the United Kingdom, India, Australia and the United States in the finance, telecommunications, technology and real estate sectors.

Matthew shares where he sees the real estate industry going post-COVID-19, and what excites him now in the sector. He also updates Hall on the evolution of the company since his last interview some three years ago.
