Meet Our Team
RealT is a union of seasoned real estate and blockchain industry executives, along with marketing, ecommerce and technology experts. Together, we are executing our collective vision to create a new real estate ownership experience.
Co-Chairman of the Board / Principal
Remy brings a wealth of experience in sales, investor relations, and security token structure to the Managing Member position. Remy has been deeply involved in real estate since 1999, and since 2012 he has been the Chief Executive Officer of J Cube Development, a real estate investment and development company based in the Miami area, where he has built multiple real estate investment portfolios that have seen positive growth.
In 2011, Remy transitioned into crypto, where he quickly developed a passion for cryptocurrency and blockchain technology. He began his career in blockchain as a miner, building his first mining operation called Liquid Bits. This operation quickly evolved into a more substantial company called CoinWare, which became one of the first commercial mega mines in 2013.
Co-Chairman of the Board / Principal
After exiting real estate, Jean-Marc initiated another project called Liquid Gold. It was here he first learned about Bitcoin, and immediately became passionate about the transformational implications cryptocurrency would have on the world. He quickly transitioned from Liquid Gold to Liquid Bits and began to focus solely on Bitcoin.
In 2013, he founded Bitcoin Embassy, the world’s first entrepreneurial hub for developers, professionals and startups in the Bitcoin industry. His vision for the Embassy was to foster a cryptocurrency community where people from different backgrounds and experiences could come together and create mutually-beneficial relationships that could help further develop and advance this disruptive technology.
Through these experiences, Jean-Marc sees the potential of blockchain technology and the important implications it has for society on a massive scale. He has a deep interest in using blockchain to help people and organizations strike the balance between privacy and transparency.
Board Member / Principal
In 1977 he joined a client, Integrated Resources, Inc., a publicly-held financial services company, and spent 13 years in the marketing, structuring and acquiring of over 600 leveraged real estate, equipment leasing, cable TV and other operating company transactions. He also headed and built the largest financial planning broker dealer group in the United States at that time.
In 1990 he was the senior-most officer at Integrated to move with the acquisition by Eli Broad and SunAmerica Inc. of Integrated’s trust company, annuity company, brokerage business and mutual fund company. During his career with SunAmerica he managed as Chairman, CEO and/or President these and other SunAmerica companies.
In 1999 following the acquisition of SunAmerica Inc. by American International Group, Inc., he stepped away from many of his day-to-day responsibilities and worked directly with AIG’s Chairman, Hank Greenberg, traveling extensively in Europe and the Far East to recreate the SunAmerica core businesses in AIG strongholds located in those places.
He decided to step back even further and spent time in the capacity of Senior Consultant to SunAmerica and AIG. He ended his formal relationship with both companies at the end of 2001.
Thereafter, he formed a series of companies to lend to, invest in and manage operating real estate and storage businesses, which to this day have been involved in over 250 transactions.
The last decade he’s focused on what has become a 40 acre real estate assemblage in the Wynwood area of Miami, a 10 acre assemblage encompassing more than 50 buildings in the Flagler Street area in downtown Miami and a 20 acre real estate assemblage in Jersey City, New Jersey, named Mana Contemporary, which today represents one of the largest 100% art related business/real estate assemblages in the world.
Chief Technology Officer
He has led and managed development teams, product documentation, dev ops, micro & lambda services, cryptographic schemes, security contract audits, streaming data, applied machine learning and cloud networking.
He brings his extensive experience developing for the cryptocurrency market to his work building cutting-edge technology for RealT.
Chief Operations Officer
From a young age, Michael had the ambition and energy to create value and entrepreneurship, including starting his own small business at the age of 17. Passionate about computers and open source, he quickly learned various web languages and participated in many open-source projects such as Jeedom (home automation software).
He discovered and briefly explored Bitcoin in 2013, and then had the opportunity in 2018 to devote more time to it and to the blockchain. He quickly made important relationships in the French-speaking ecosystem as an influencer, business leader, trainer, developer, and investor. Michael continues to provide support as an investor, trainer, and consultant (UX, DeFi, process, etc.) on various projects, including “Jarvis” and “Mt Pelerin”. He likes to test new protocols and educate as many people as he can to advance the general adoption of decentralized finance.
At the end of 2019 Michael discovered RealT, which at that time was still in beta and not well-known. As usual, he purchased a few tokens to test what RealT offered, but soon realized that he wanted to better understand the project, and fell in love with RealT’s mission. He reached out to Rémy and Jean-Marc in order to get a deeper understanding, which he began to pass on to the various crypto communities in which he is active. This established him as a French-speaking trainer and contact point for RealT.
After exchanges with the founders and the growing French-speaking community, RealT proposed that Michael become their official link with the French-speaking community. His relationship with RealT continued to evolve, coming to include work as a consultant on the field of DeFi (Decentralized Finance), decentralized blockchain tools, internal processes, and many other ideas from the culture of his native country, Switzerland.
In 2020 he officially became RealT’s COO in order to accelerate RealT’s rapid progress, and to take up challenges such as the L2 migration, the Aave partnership, and RealT’s ongoing integration with the DeFi ecosystem.
Chief Financial Officer / Chief Compliance Officer
For a brief period, Sherri shifted her professional focus towards mission-driven work by helping non-profits improve their revenue, business development and operational strategies. Although the experience was rewarding, it served to confirm that her true passion lies within finance and entrepreneurial startups. Sherri became intrigued with block chain during a recent Wharton class, seeing it as a game-changing, disruptive innovation that holds the capability of completely transforming the real estate landscape and is passionate to help build and participate in a new economic system supported by the nascent De-Fi technologies. Sherri sees the myriad ways De-Fi addresses the inadequacies and inequalities of the traditional financial infrastructure and believes there is great opportunity for traditional and neo-banks to collaborate and implement new technologies to support their existing framework. She feels honored to bring her leadership, financial, operational and compliance expertise to serve as an invaluable asset to RealT’s continued success.
Sherri holds an MBA from Boston University, and a BS in Finance from Bentley University. She has completed coursework towards a MST from Northeastern University, as well as participating in executive education programs at Wharton.
