Why Patch of Land?
Patch of Land is dedicated to transparency for our borrowers and investors, and we extend this commitment to our employees as well. We are an industry pioneering, well-funded and rapidly growing company in the financial and technology sectors, with headquarters centrally-located in beautiful West Los Angeles.
We use advanced technology to solve the problem of slow, inefficient, and obscure private real estate lending. We process data more efficiently to accurately assign risk profiles and project viability, while greatly reducing time and cost of loan underwriting for borrowers with real estate projects that are traditionally overlooked or rejected by banks and lenders.
We want to rebuild the communities that were affected by the real estate crash and implement changes to keep it from happening again. From early on, we wanted to be as transparent as possible and we still keep that value present. We are building wealth and growing communities, while providing access to investment and financing in an unprecedented way.

From company happy hours, board game breaks, to planking for fitness we take the time to wind down, relax, and build relationships with one another. We have an all-company meeting each week, as every person is critical at Patch of Land.

Jason Fritton, a successful e-commerce entrepreneur, wanted to help repair communities across the country that were devastated by the real estate crash and implement changes to keep it from happening again. He was an early lobbyist for exemptions that would encourage and democratize capital formation for new business to be written into the JOBS Act (Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act). The law passed in 2012, including the crowdfunding exemptions he’d worked for.
He joined forces with his brother Brian Fritton, an award-winning enterprise-level software engineer and system architect with the same passion for encouraging growth through economic development – and state of the art technology, to put the opportunities the JOBS Act enabled into effect. Los Angeles technology entrepreneur, investor and real estate developer, Carlo Tabibi, shared the vision of a financial intermediary that could make real estate lending more viable and efficient.
The Founders united their ideas, experience and resources to form Patch of Land, where transparency, low minimums, project-by-project investment and ease of transaction would set the stage for real change and real profit.
