Capstak: A Nevada Success Story


Just a year after Capstak, Inc. launched in Reno, the innovative digital platform for the commercial real estate profession has widened its reach to markets across the United States.

Capstak is bringing the same deep knowledge of markets, transactions and relationships that the Capstak team developed in Las Vegas and Reno to help commercial real estate professionals from coast-to-coast become even more successful.

And along the way, Capstak demonstrates how the strong base of technology professionals in Nevada is building successful homegrown companies for the 21st Century.

Heather Goldman and Michael Schnabel, the co-founders of Capstak, have a combined 50 years experience in commercial real estate — and they had 50 years of frustration with the way the business traditionally operates.

They spent untold hours each day chasing down news and market insights, matching “haves” and “wants” in the marketplace and finding the right capital partners.

Those inefficiencies were costing them the ability to do more transactions, and Schnabel and Goldman figured they weren’t the only ones that were frustrated.

They worked with savvy technology pros to build the heart of the Capstak platform, a proprietary algorithm that seamlessly and easily matches buyers with sellers, tenants with landlords, lenders with borrowers — the “haves” and the “wants.”

Along with the matching algorithm, provides a platform that allows commercial real estate professionals to catch up with the important industry news and insights in their own markets as well as nationally.

Schnabel notes that the news and insights on have proven especially valuable to professionals who want a reliable source for timely information about new and growing companies in the fast-paced Nevada economy as well as the many factors that create a strong environment for the commercial real estate sector.

“After all,” says Goldman, “commercial real estate is about more than just property. It’s about communities, it’s about people, it’s about great places for families. It’s about important investments in our collective future.”

The platform has found popularity, too, as it opens the door to development of profitable new relationships between professionals all across the spectrum of the commercial real estate spectrum.

Capstak was quickly embraced by professionals in Nevada after they saw the power of the platform to build their businesses, and it’s getting a similar welcome by professionals across the United States.

Capstak is winning recognition as homegrown success story, an example of the ways that Nevada’s technology expertise will bring remarkable benefits to professionals worldwide.
