TRIXY CASTRO, formerly Trixy Weiss, has founded multiple companies focused on financing and real estate solutions for real estate investors.
In 2011, Castro saw an underserved niche for real estate professionals needing access to assets and financing for real estate acquisitions. This led her to found Genesis Auctions, creating the first technology-driven real estate disposition platform for investor buyers, giving them access to purchase distressed properties and providing buyers the capital to do so.
The success of Genesis Auctions led to a merger with Hudson & Marshall in April of 2015. Hudson & Marshall provides real estate disposition services for the largest banks, servicers, investors, and government sponsored entities in the U.S. and is the exclusive auction platform for the FDIC. In the past five years, Hudson & Marshall sold over $10 billion in real estate and more than 150,000 homes.
Castro is also the founder and co-chairman of the board of directors of Genesis Capital, a national originator of private money loans, which is partnered with Oaktree Capital Management. Under Castro’s leadership, Genesis Capital has become an industry leader, originating over $1 billion in loans to the nation’s top real estate developers, with zero losses and strong investor returns.
Prior to founding Genesis Capital and Genesis Auctions, Castro created and ran a variety of real-estate services firms, including a full-service mortgage brokerage and a settlement services company. Castro worked for Wells Fargo before leaving to start her own companies.
