Who We Are

Crowdcopia is a new style of lender with a fresh perspective on how lending should take place.  We are real estate investors, brokers, borrowers, property managers and flippers. Because we understand the industry first-hand, we feel that we can better serve our clients’ borrowing needs by streamlining the lending process and saving time and money in the process.

What Makes Crowdcopia Different

We are actively involved in the real estate investment and construction fields and thus have the experience to assist in your project beyond just financing. In addition to monitoring fund disbursements, our project managers are regularly available onsite for design/construction consulting, negotiating with contractors, reviewing budgets and any other services that will save you time and money.

Who We Are Looking For:

We are looking to build long term relationships with consistent, successful borrowers. We aim to streamline the lending process by eliminating the fees and most of the paperwork and red tape normally associated with lending. If you are someone who wants to build a borrower/lender “partnership” based on mutual trust and understanding of the RE market, then contact us for your next project.

Luke was an economics major from Rollins College. A former NASDAQ market maker, he purchased first investment property in 2001 and completed the project of converting it, a 4 family building in Jersey City, NJ into condos. Luke then worked on multiple flipping projects up until 2006 when he took a break from the real estate business until 2010 which is when he started purchasing single family homes in west Philadelphia with his partners Craig and Jon. After building a rental portfolio, they decided to start lending. Luke now runs the sales and loan origination for Crowdcopia, and helped pioneer a new, more sensible and efficient way to lend.

Craig graduated from St Johns University with a bachelor’s degree in finance. I’ve been around the construction business since 12 years old and worked half of every summer with my Uncles construction company and the other half on the New York Stock Exchange, until graduating college. Craig built custom oceanfront homes in Staten Island and headed the construction of Open Road BMW dealership in Edison NJ in 1991. He worked on wall street for Spear, Leeds & Kellogg, Goldman Sachs and Susquehanna. He has always had a fascination for tools and built a very extensive collection over the years. In the last 10 years he has built out over 200 residential properties and recently completed our 1st commercial project, which is actually the building we operate out of. Craig is the general contractor for Finished Edge Design and oversees all construction on all rehabs for the company. He has also been the General Contractor for 20 properties in various stages at any given time from 2012- present. He’s responsible for construction inspections for disbursements for all of our loans with Crowdcopia. He’s able to facilitate any of the construction trades for the borrower.
