About us

Buy the Block is a crowdinvesting platform designed to help communities invest in themselves.

Welcome to Buy The Block your source for investing in private offerings. We are dedicated to giving you the very best portal, with a focus on low minimums, community development, dependability, customer service, and uniqueness.

Real estate investment often requires a level of financial commitment that many families just cannot afford. Buy the Block spreads that commitment over a broader base of investors to provide individuals and families with a real equity stake in their communities.

My name is Linda (Lynn) P. Smith, and I founded my first company at 28, with the help of family and friends. In 2010, I established BBE to pay it forward by providing education and funding for businesses. With Buy the Block, I am doing more good by enabling communities to come together to make investments they could not historically make individually.

Many financial experts will tell you that the key to economic independence is putting your money to work for you. Traditional real estate investments require a significant financial commitment. Buy the Block is reducing that responsibility to make real estate investments that almost everyone can make. By bringing investors together with entrepreneurs, we are not just building stronger communities; we are creating wealthier districts. In that wealth lies real independence.


First discovered in 2013 by Lynn, Buy The Block has come a long way from its beginnings in a toolshed, Cincinnati, OH. When Lynn first started out, her passion for investing in real estate and helping other people be more financially stable while providing the best resources for her fellow entrepreneurs drove her to do intense research to create more valuable tools to assist others like her. Buy The Block now serve investors and developers all over the US, and is thrilled to be a part of the crowdinvesting world and alternative finance industry.

We hope you enjoy our platform as much as we enjoy offering this service to you. If you have any questions or comments, please don't hesitate to contact us.
