Gatsby Investment combines technology with human expertise, to make real estate investing easier and more profitable for individual investors and fund companies than ever before.
Based in Los Angeles, our team of real estate professionals, software engineers, and business innovators work hard to make rare deals accessible to investors via our investment platform.
Our model provides the same benefits as traditional real estate investing, with the added advantage of completely passive returns.
Many investors want to take advantage of real estate investing. But not everyone has the time, knowledge, industry connections, or desire to complete extensive value-add construction work or build new developments from the ground up to maximize returns. That’s where Gatsby Investment comes in.
Established in 2016 by experienced businessman Dan Gatsby, Gatsby Investment offers rare real estate projects with high profitability potential to everyday investors who wish to own a share of the deal. The unique investment opportunities we create would traditionally be out of reach for most investors, but through our innovative investment model and high-performance technology platform, any accredited investor can now access these exclusive deals!
Thanks to our software automation and tech specialists, we have the systems in place to handle deals in volume. This allows us to efficiently run with low overhead costs to deliver higher returns to investors.
Our experienced and skilled team oversees every aspect of every project. We partner with established developers, operators, and general contractors across the country to bring investors the best possible deals. We handle the funding process, establish the ownership LLC, secure the loan, purchase the property, supervise the architects and builders, and take care of the sale or ongoing management of the asset. We manage all the financials in a transparent manner, including loan draws, cost verifications, vendor payments, 1099 and K-1 tax forms, and investor distributions. We provide a stable legal ownership structure and give regular updates to investors throughout the process.

Our founder and CEO, Dan Gatsby
Dan Gatsby is the founder and president of Gatsby Investment. As a seasoned businessman with over 30 years of experience in software development and business invention, Dan had a goal to make rare real estate investment opportunities accessible to individual investors across the US and to make investing in real estate as easy as investing in stocks.
Gatsby Investment was founded by Dan Gatsby in 2016. But the story started long before that with a small printing shop in Culver City.
Dan opened his Culver City printing shop in 2001. In just 15 years, Dan had grown this business to become the second-largest wholesale printer company in the country with over 500 employees and annual revenue of over $75 million. This success was largely because Dan revolutionized the printing industry by becoming the first to develop software for accepting online orders of complex print jobs which had previously required lengthy conversations. With Dan’s innovative eCommerce system, customers from all over the country could place complex print orders quickly, easily, and affordably.
Upon selling the company, Dan decided to invest the proceeds in real estate and started building an extensive real estate portfolio. He built a world-class team of industry professionals and invested a large portion of his fortune into various real estate projects. Dan gained experience in a variety of real estate types: house flip/value-add, luxury homes, multi-family rentals, vacation rentals, ground-up developments, and raw land.
When the JOBS Act passed in 2012, Dan saw an opportunity. He wanted to combine his software development skills and business experience with real estate to make complex real estate investments easily accessible to investors. This idea would become the Gatsby Investment platform we see today.
