Max Property Group was founded by a team of real estate professionals from various countries in Europe. Our backgrounds include real estate development, running estate agencies, owning mortgage advisories and structuring real estate funds.

The idea was always to create property funds where people could invest from as little as €1,000, but this proved to be complicated due to regulatory restrictions between countries.

This is why, after launching several property funds successfully, Max Crowdfund was created. Via Max Crowdfund, once the regulatory licenses are obtained, anyone can invest from as little as €100 in real estate investments in which they are allowed to invest.

Again this is restricted by regulations of each jurisdiction we operate in, but eventually our goal is to allow anyone to invest in any real estate investment opportunity around the world. Not an easy task, but one we are determined to accomplish.
