The Alliven Group Names Yehuda Newman as Vice President of Acquisitions

LAKEWOOD, N.J. -- The Alliven Group, a leading New Jersey-based real estate firm, has announced the arrival of Yehuda Newman as Vice President of Acquisitions. Mr. Newman will be focusing on all aspects of new transactions with Joint Venture partners, as well as growing an in-house multifamily platform to complement The Alliven Group's already robust portfolio of joint venture properties.

"Following an extensive search, we are excited to welcome such an experienced, capable, and passionate leader to our team," said Rachel Lasry, COO of The Alliven Group. "Yehuda's background in multifamily investments is a great fit with our focus on the multifamily market, which has been very successful for us."

Prior to joining The Alliven Group, Mr. Newman spent five years at The Lightstone Group, a New York City private equity firm. His responsibilities included sourcing and underwriting potential acquisition opportunities, particularly value-add multifamily and development sites. He worked closely with the executive team, performing market research of new target MSA's; developed investment recommendations; and managed the transaction due diligence and closing processes. Mr. Newman has been instrumental in closing multimillion-dollar deals across the country, including hotels, development sites, and multifamily assets.

When sourcing new deals and reviewing the projected performance of an investment, Mr. Newman always makes it a point to visit each location and learn about it from the ground up, working to build relationships with the people behind the deal. He brings that development philosophy to The Alliven Group, which has pursued opportunities across the country. "I like to get to know the place and meet the people there, because ultimately, it's not the numbers that make the deal happen, it's the people who do it," Mr. Newman said.

Top of Mind Networks partners with MobilityRE to fuel mortgage loan officer/real estate agent collaboration through SurefireCRM

ATLANTA, Ga. -- Top of Mind Networks (Top of Mind), a leader in customer relationship management (CRM) and marketing automation software for the mortgage lending industry, has added game-changing real estate market intelligence, collaboration and analytics tools from MobilityRE to its flagship SurefireCRM.

"Mortgage lenders and real estate agents who forge mutually productive relationships deliver a better homebuying experience, which in turn instills consumer loyalty and feeds growth through word-of-mouth and social sharing," said Top of Mind EVP of Strategic Partnerships Jonas Kruckeberg. "Top of Mind's integration with MobilityRE is among our most exciting, because it gives loan officers the market intelligence they need to seek out highly productive referral relationships - which SurefireCRM then makes easy with built-in solutions for referral partner co-branding."

SurefireCRM provides access to the most extensive property listing coverage of any CRM, allowing lenders to generate Realtor-co-branded websites for individual properties using data and images pulled straight from a listing. As these Single Property Sites collect leads, SurefireCRM automatically goes to work nurturing those leads with co-branded, multi-channel marketing campaigns.

"In today's mortgage market, everyone is using a mobile device to search for a home. With MobilityRE, Realtors can provide a top-quality, mobile-optimized home search experience in a branded app that insulates borrowers from opportunistic competitors," said MobilityRE CEO and Founder Ben Teerlink. "Mortgage originators can then use data insights from our Mortgage Market Intelligence to identify the most productive agents and bring them into SurefireCRM to start building mutually beneficial relationships. Loan officers who follow this approach are seeing tremendous success and really growing their production volumes."

With MobilityRE's Mortgage Market Intelligence (MMI), SurefireCRM customers can assess current marketplace productivity and act on competitive intelligence to build the networks that best support their marketing strategies. For instance, lenders can identify which real estate agents are closing the most loans of a given type within a given geographical area. Lenders can even track agent activity in real time, receiving alerts as Realtors post new listings.

MobilityRE first made a name for itself with its white-labeled home search app. Designed for Realtors and lenders to share with their clientele, the app pulls property information directly from MLS databases, ensuring data accuracy for a superior consumer experience. When new listings hit the market that meet the prospective homebuyer's criteria and credit capacity, MobilityRE automatically alerts Realtors and loan officers so they can proactively schedule home viewings and prepare pre-approval letters.

Beycome joins the LAB Ventures studio

MIAMI, Fla. -- LAB Miami Ventures announced today that Beycome has joined its Startup Studio program, making it the sixth studio company in the studio's portfolio.

Beycome is a flat-fee MLS listing service that is disrupting residential real estate, by helping people to buy or sell a home without needing a real estate agent. The technology behind the Beycome platform brings buyers and sellers together, providing the tools and resources to empower people to be their best DIY agent. The platform offers buyers up to 3% cash back on their purchase and allows sellers to list their properties for a flat-fee, saving them up to 6% in commissions.

Beycome was founded by Nicolas Jodin and Herve Barbera in 2016. When Jodin was selling his first home he realized how difficult it was to avoid expensive estate agents. "I realized almost immediately that hardly anyone was willing to work with a FSBO home," he recalls. If you're not familiar with real estate jargon, FSBO is shorthand for 'For Sale by Owner', a concept in which homeowners sell their property without the assistance of a real estate agent or broker.

The company has already helped over 7,000 homeowners close deals that saved a combined $48 million in commissions. With a goal of educating homeowners to become their own realtor, the digital service prioritizes service and support over sales. "The main focus of our company is to help homeowners become their own real estate agents. They handle all negotiations and showings themselves, which in turn allows them to get the most out of their sale or rental. Our users closed two weeks faster than the industry average, and that's proof that the model works." Says Jodin, who will stay on as the new CEO of Beycome.

Beycome is the first outside company to join LAB Ventures, as the other studio companies were all ideated and built in-house. With the support of LAB Ventures, Jodin plans to consolidate the company's leadership position in the Florida market, add additional services (including a recent partnership with another LAB Ventures company Expetitle to provide title insurance), and launch in new markets outside of Florida.

"Here's this really cool startup that had an interesting business model, was getting traction, but needed some strategic direction," explains Matti Marshak, CEO of the Startup Studio. "Our focus will be on how to scale - with a more direct digital marketing strategy, faster software development, more rigorous internal processes. Once we finish the strategic planning process, we'll be helping them to raise additional capital to fund the growth strategy."

"Our studio has been focused on our own internal projects, building startups by helping co-founders with the marketing, software, UX/UI, business development and fundraising activities. Where else can a brand new founder start with an experienced team in all of these areas on day one?" asks Tigre Wenrich, CEO of LAB Ventures. "But we've also been looking for existing startups that we can help in our areas of expertise, but until now we haven't found the critical combination of a visionary entrepreneur, with a great idea, that needed and wanted outside help."

With so many other firms providing startup support, why did the Beycome team choose LAB Ventures? "It was obvious for me. I first met them at their event, The Future of Real Estate Tech Summit, and as a company their core focus is in PropTech. We wanted a partner who really understands all aspects of the real estate industry. LAB Ventures is building the future of real estate and I think Beycome is the future," explained Jodin.

"When I met Tigre for the first time, it was actually about the Expetitle partnership. But even in that first meeting, he took the time to really understand the DNA of Beycome. He was enthusiastic and provided very helpful feedback. To me, it's very important to have the technical aspect of a partnership, but I need to believe in the human aspect of my partners as well. I wholeheartedly trust Matti and Tigre to guide me in leading this new chapter for Beycome and LAB Ventures."

LAB Ventures is a startup studio based out of Miami, Florida, focused on the proptech sector. Its goal is to build disrupting companies from ideation to scale.

Beycome is a completely digital flat-fee MLS listing platform that enables people to buy and sell homes without a Realtor.

Stalking Horse Bid Set as Green Mountain College Campus Goes to Auction

CENTRAL ISLIP, N.Y. -- Maltz Auctions, a premier full-service auction company serving the Continental United States and Caribbean, announced it has a well-qualified, interested party who placed a $3m stalking horse bid for the idyllic 155-acre Green Mountain College Campus, anchoring Main Street, in the Historic downtown of Poultney, Vermont, which was previously listed at $23m.

"This quintessential New England campus had been the home of Green Mountain College, a private 4-year liberal arts school focused on environmental, social, and economic sustainability, which unfortunately closed at the end of 2019," stated Keith Lowey of Verdolino & Lowey, the Chief Restructuring Officer for Green Mountain College. "It's truly a turn-key opportunity for the right buyer as it is comprised of classic New England dormitory buildings, classrooms, administrative offices, lecture halls, cafeteria, student center, community space, library building, athletic facilities- including fields, gymnasium, pool, and more, a 400-seat theater/auditorium, fine arts studios and galleries, a working farm, guest residences and a campus-wide wood-fueled biomass (carbon neutral) heating system." Lowey then added, "In 2016 the property was appraised at $20m. There are also favorable financing options available for qualified buyers with $3.2m being the next bid increment accepted."

Maltz Auction's CEO, Richard Maltz shared, "We are pleased there was great interest in this property as it represents an exceptionally rare opportunity to acquire an environmentally sustainable, green campus that is superbly located and beautifully maintained in a single transaction. The party who placed the $3m stalking horse bid understands that there is incredible reuse or redevelopment potential- and great value."

The Green Mountain Campus is in southern Vermont's beautiful lakes region, with the Adirondack Mountains to the west and the Green Mountains to the east. The 155-acre campus situated on the New York-Vermont border features classic red-brick and slate roof buildings, athletic fields, a working farm, hiking and bike trails, and much more.

The property sits at the intersection of College Street and Main Street in the heart of Poultney, a vibrant and quaint New England village of 3,400 residents, which has been recognized, along with 22 others in Vermont, as a historic downtown. Poultney is home to an extensive bike trail network as well as to Lake St. Catherine and Lake St. Catherine State Park, a 117-acre destination park, campground and nature center. Lake Bomoseen State Park is less than a 15-minute ride north of Poultney. Both the Killington and Okemo ski areas are less than an hour away.

The town of Poultney is located 'in the middle of everywhere', bordered by Ira & Middletown Springs to the east, Fair Haven and Castleton to the north, Hampton (NY) to the west, and Wells to the south. Poultney is approximately 80 miles southwest of Vermont's capital city (Montpelier), 70 miles south of Vermont's largest city (Burlington) and 65 miles west of the Vermont/New Hampshire border in White River Junction. Poultney is also proximate to Saratoga Springs (50 miles southwest of Poultney) and Albany (70 miles southwest of Poultney) in New York state.

In addition, great shopping, year-round recreational activities, skiing destinations (including Vermont's premier ski resort, Killington Mountain) and college towns including Burlington (VT), Bennington (VT), Middlebury (VT) and Queensbury (NY) are located nearby.

The closest city to Poultney is Rutland, Vermont, which is the largest town in Vermont after Burlington and South Burlington. The city of Rutland is located approximately 20 miles northeast of Poultney, or a 25-30-minute drive via Route 30 & Route 4. Rutland offers the Rutland Regional Medical Center as well as an eclectic mix of shopping, restaurants, bars, cafés as well as cultural and entertainment venues and attractions. The state of Vermont, known as the Green Mountain state, ranks as the healthiest and best-educated state in the country.

SARASOTA, Fla. -- Current Builders today announced their newest project Reef at Riviera, located in Manatee County, Florida. The general contractor has formed a joint venture with the developer Dominium Inc., based in Plymouth, Minnesota, to build a new affordable senior housing project in the City of Palmetto.

The architecture firm is the Bessolo Design Group. Construction recently began on the $33 million, 5-story, 224-unit multifamily housing project, and anticipated completion is late Fall 2021.
