With its roots as a former bank holding company, Sortis has evolved into a diversified firm that both lends and opportunistically invests in real estate with a focus on the Western US. Since real estate and financial markets are constantly evolving, our ability to move between asset classes and positions in the capital stack makes us more nimble than our competitors.
In just a couple of years, Sortis has assembled a platform of synergistic companies to execute on its strategies. These platforms include:
A 50 state loan originator, special servicer and collector
A boutique capital markets advisory firm
A partnership with a diversified commercial development company based in Seattle, WA
A partnership with a project and construction management firm based in Portland, OR
A venture investment company focused on early stage fintech related investments that are synergistic with the Sortis Financial platform
With the recent addition of Third and Pine LLC, a Seattle based real estate development company, and the affiliation with BC Group, a project and construction management group, Sortis has pushed further into direct real estate investment. This has provided a foundation for our first $100 million direct real estate investment fund, Sortis Opportunity Zone Fund I (“Sortis OZ Fund”).
The fund management team has over 25 years of experience together on over $1 billion of development projects. The broad range of asset class experience includes office, retail, multi-family, hospitality and assisted living allowing for a diversified portfolio to bridge cycles and mitigate risk. This breadth of product expertise is particularly helpful when the strategy includes geographic limitations as in the Sortis OZ Fund. To learn more about our Sortis OZ Fund, send us a note.
Sortis Financial provides a superior customer experience for technology-enabled real estate investment and alternative lending products, mortgage loan servicing and mortgage pool investment. Lending products include Non-QM, Fix and Flip, Fix and Rent, Residential Non-Owner and Commercial. Sortis Financial leverages our highly capable, technology enabled platform and our lending expertise to provide a transparent, efficient process for investors and real estate professionals.
Sortis Financial administers Sortis Income Fund, an un-leveraged, evergreen real estate asset-backed mortgage pool investment fund focused on creating high yielding fixed income returns that are backed by liens on various classes of real estate. Equity membership units in the fund are offered through a Regulation D private placement securities offering to accredited investors. Leveraging our real estate and banking background, we selectively put funds to work in an environment that is demonstrating high demand for financing that traditional financial institutions cannot provide.
Sortis Financial, our wholly owned subsidiary, is a 50 state special servicer focused on consumer, mortgage and commercial loans. We are re-inventing mortgage loan servicing by providing exceptional customer service and delivering smooth and simple user experience and decades of hands-on experience in the mortgage and finance industries.

Sortis Capital offers advisory services in the financial services and real estate space. We specialize in debt and equity capital placement, strategic capital advisory and distressed situations for lower middle market companies.

With our roots as a former bank holding company and our continued involvement in private finance, we embrace technology. While we embrace disruption in finance, the regulatory environment still demands a level of infrastructure and compliance that is initially out of reach for many young fintech companies. We not only appreciate regulatory challenges, we understand how to create efficient solutions within them.
At the core of our infrastructure is Sortis Financial, a wholly owned subsidiary that is a technology-driven platform nationally licensed as a servicer, lender and debt collector. A ready-made regulatory and operational infrastructure that enables scaling for our proprietary online lending products and also enables partnerships with other emerging fintech companies. Through our Sortis Ventures subsidiary, we opportunistically invest in synergistic early stage fintech companies.
