In 2011, Founder and CEO Julie Wainwright started The RealReal out of her home, working at her kitchen table and visiting consignors at their homes with a U-Haul. What began as a scrappy startup has transformed the business of authenticated luxury consignment into a dynamic, global movement that champions not only quality and craftsmanship, but also sustainability and community. Now, The RealReal is a company with millions of shoppers and consignors. We have 18 retail locations (including 14 shoppable stores) across the country where customers can sell, meet with our experts and receive free valuations. From women’s, men’s, and kids’ fashion to fine jewelry, watches, fine art, and home decor, we are curating the world’s largest and most trusted marketplace for authenticated luxury.
