Chairman & Co-Founder

Roofstock

Greater Oakland CA Area

An entrepreneur at heart, Gregor is constantly examining the ways to enhance and improve Roofstock’s platform and expansion across domestic and international markets as Chairman and Co-Founder. A founder of multiple enterprises, Gregor brings over 15 years of experience in real estate to Roofstock. “We founded Roofstock because we wanted to change the way that things were done - identifying the inefficiencies and delivering a focused digital answer for the real estate industry wasn’t a ‘nice to have,’ but a ‘need to have,’ and I’m proud of the solution that we’ve built.” In addition to Roofstock, Gregor is co-founder at 1Sharpe Capital, an investment firm focused on US and global credit and equity markets with $1 billion in AUM. Gregor is also the founder of 643 Capital Management, which has invested $1 billion in SFR homes nationally and sold his company Dwell Finance, one of the first lenders for the SFR market, to Blackstone in 2015. Gregor is a member of the 2018 San Francisco Business Times’ 40 Under 40 ranking and was also selected as a HousingWire Rising Star in 2019. He received his BA from Regis University in Denver, Colorado.
