Cyril Berdugo is the Co-Founder of Landis, a company that helps realtors close on more transactions by creating a whole new category of home buyers. With Landis, clients who are not yet ready to buy a home can pick a property which Landis buys, at which point the client turns into Landis’s tenant. Upon closing, the realtor who referred the client to Landis generates a full commission. As Landis’s tenant, the client receives free tools and incentives to improve their mortgage readiness and buys the property back from Landis at a pre-agreed upon price, typically within 12 months.
Prior to building Landis, Cyril was a venture capitalist at Fifth Wall Ventures and a Director at Crown Acquisitions, a NY-based real estate investment firm. Before joining Crown, he worked at Houlihan Lokey, where he advised companies on mergers and acquisitions as well as at Citigroup. Throughout his career, he has completed over $10B in transactions.
