Who We Are

The Ira Group is a crowd-funding platform, offering investors the safest parts of commercial real estate bridge loans. It is designed to provide opportunities for investors seeking to invest with small minimums on conservative, short-term deals.

The Ira Group was founded in April 2019 by Ira Zlotowitz, who currently also serves as the President of Eastern Union Funding. Eastern Union brokers $5bb of commercial real estate loans annually, and over the last year, a third of the total amount brokered came from bridge loans.

What We Do

As Eastern Union began brokering more and more bridge loans, President Ira Zlotowitz noticed that a large number of the deals were structured in a way that would be appealing for investors to put their money behind, mainly based off of the A-B structure. The Ira Group was launched to fund A-pieces of these loans, with Ira himself personally participating and overseeing every detail of the loans.

How It Works

The Ira Group participates at a maximum loan to value of 56%. The Ira Group then allows investors to participate in the 0-50% piece for a lower return or in the 50%-56% piece for a higher return. 0-50% loans are considered Triple-A rated and extremely safe, as they limit participants’ exposure in any given deal, and allow for an investor to diversify their portfolio. Bridge loans are also typically short-term, averaging under 12 months, so participants don’t have the problem of their money being tied up long-term.

Benefits of Lending

First Position
A bridge loan can be secured as a first position mortgage. This means that in the event of a default, the bridge lender gets their money back first.
Pick Your Level of Risk
Depending on where you see real estate values going, you can choose what loan-to-value to lend on each specific deal.
A-piece & B-piece lending
Conservative and aggressive lenders can participate in the same bridge loan by structuring it where the conservative bridge lenders get their money back first for a lower rate.
