RealReal is an online marketplace of luxury consignment goods — from clothing to jewelry to fine art to home decor. It also has brick-and-mortar stores in select cities. You can find everything from Chanel earrings and bags, Rolex watches, Prada boots, Gucci loafers, and Miu Miu sunglasses to J Brand jeans and Reformation sundresses for a fraction of their original price.
RealReal was founded in 2011 by Julie Wainwright, an e-commerce entrepreneur. By July 2018, the company had raised $288 million in venture capital funding. In 2017, RealReal opened its first permanent retail store in New York City. It also opened pop-ups in San Francisco and Las Vegas.
According to The RealReal, a team of more than 100 experts, which includes gemologists, horologists, and luxury brand authenticators, physically inspects thousands of items every day. The RealReal ensures that everything it sells is 100% authentic.
The company makes consigning effortless with free in-home pickup, drop-off service and direct shipping for individual consignors and estates. At their stores in LA and NYC, customers can shop, consign, and meet with experts. At nine Luxury Consignment Offices, three of which are in retail stores, expert staff provides free valuations.
