About Us

Our Mission

Our mission is to enable entrepreneurial growth by providing real estate investors with fast, conveniently accessible capital, and by harnessing technology to improve investors' journey, from property search to sale.

Where It All Began

New Silver was founded by Kirill Bensonoff and Alex Shvayetsky in 2019. With Kirill’s entrepreneurial background in investing and building disruptive technologies, and Alex’s lifelong real estate experience, New Silver was built on a strong foundation.

The company’s initial mission was to enable real estate investors to access fast and convenient capital. New Silver’s real time loan pricing engine accomplishes this by providing instant online approval, a term sheet, and a proof of funds, so that our clients can start making offers within minutes. New Silver then took it a step further to harness the power of technology and Decentralized Finance and became the first real-world asset ever to be voted in by MakerDAO, a top-3 stablecoin protocol.
