Side, a San Francisco, CA-based real estate brokerage that enables agents, teams, and local brokerages to grow their businesses and their own boutique brands, raised over $60 million in total funding.
This includes the most recent $35m raised Series C round led by Paul Levine, Managing Director at Sapphire Ventures. Levine, who also joins Side’s Board of Directors, was previously President/COO of Trulia through their IPO and multi-billion dollar acquisition by Zillow. Patricia Nakache of Trinity Ventures, Dana Stalder of Matrix Partners and a host of strategic real estate investors also participated in the round.
The funding will be used to further support Side’s agent partners and nationwide expansion.
Led by CEO and Co-founder Guy Gal, Side enables agents, teams and independent brokerages to become businesses and boutique brands which are agent-owned. The company provides partners with proprietary technology and a support team so they can be more productive, grow their business and focus on serving their clients.
Side’s roster of partners includes Michael Silva, Founder of Happen Houston; Anthony Marguleas, Founder of Amalfi Estates; Bryn and Robb Stroyke, Founders of The Stroyke Properties Group at Bayside; Ben Bacal, Founder of Revel Real Estate; Dave Fratello, Founder of Edge Real Estate; Matt Luke, Founder of Major League Properties; Jared Jones and Brian Hopkins, Founders of Power of 2 Realty; Jeff Rosa, Founder of Market Real Estate; and Tyson Robinson, Founder of Trillion Real Estate, among others.
