The Navigator Story


NavigatorCRE was a platform born from the commercial real estate industry from leading professionals seeking to fundamentally change the way data is used in operations. The platform dates back to 2008 when Taylor Odegard began the development of the platform, to his then decade of use of his alpha in the industry, eventually pairing up with Brett Hartzell which brought the platform into view of the top CRE owners, to teaming up with Russ Johnson who helped bring together seed capital, advisors and the organizational formation. These 3 founders collectively represent over 50 years of commercial real estate experience, all 3 believers in the power of data and its value.
